Very beautiful observations, thank you! I especially liked this:
I think ultimately the self is the whole reality – everything ever.
I remember instances from many so called past lives, and I know many others who do. The fact that most people don’t remember has a strange effect, I sometimes compare it to not remembering that there was yesterday, and believing that falling asleep means the end of life. It’s like living in societies where people grieve for everyone who has fallen asleep and dread their own evening.
But if you read You Are the Universe, you will find a very interesting discussion about linear time and about experience in general. I’m curious what you will think of that.
You wrote “Everything may be in the process of working itself out into perfection – so nothing ever goes wrong again”. My question to you is- how do you define “wrong”?
