I do not discount reincarnation. People have been put in touch with past lives through hypnosis. I tend to think that if reincarnation is true we do not know we have all been here before or there would be a lot more people claiming it. Considering that the population of the earth keeps expanding there are plenty people giving it their first shot (unless we can be reincarnated multiple times in the same time period)..

Deb, I will be thinking of you, and wish you a wonderful time with your family. I wish you love and laughter and good memories, and I know you will make new wonderful memories with your family today. And, I think Greg will still be there, as he lives forever in your heart.

Hi kids. This post is really off subjects..but I am curious if any of you believe in reincarnation?  I was raised as a Christian Scientist..went to Sunday school till I was 18, but even as a little kid, I questioned the idea of Heavan and Hell. My child’s brain DIDN,t buy the idea of when everyone passes, we all go to Heavan, and fly around with wings. (I never considered a hell..I DIDN,t believe any person was bad enough to be sent to somewhere like Dante’s Inferno) So hence my child’s mind figured Heaven would be REALLY CROWDED. Therefore this whole idea DIDN,t seem plausible. When I was 20 my SIL gave me 2 books  about Edgar Cayce and I felt I had “come home”. Finally an idea made sense to me. Reincarnation. I only have a vague grasp on his teachings..but the basic idea is to be a good person in each of your lives, and if you are NOT, you must pay for your evil deeds in your current life where said deeds were committed, or return, and live a better life, and atone for bad stuff you did in your previous life. The eventual goal is to be a very good person, attain perfection, until your spirit is pure, and you go somewhere else..because you have learned all you were meant to, been a decent good person, and attained perfection. This part is a hard concept to wrap my head around..but I try..and I believe it.

Yeah, the perfection thing is still muddled in my brain, as it gets kinda murky to me..but that was like an AHA! Moment. We have so many past lives...and I really don’t understand much, but the basic concept. And, yes, Mr Cayce was a very strong believer in God, and read the Bible , taught Sunday school bla bla bla. But I also believe in ALL did he, as long as we are good and kind and basically follow the simple rule to be such. 

So, have you ever felt drawn to another faith, or culture? Does this make any sense to you? Have you ever been somewhere and KNEW you had been there before, but you had NOT? In my mind, a soul is too precious to only be on this earth for the short time we are allotted, which is why we have many different lives...

this is so hard to try to explain..and I have tried re-reading books on Edgar Cayce, but I don,t have the focus anymore.   And the GREAT THING, is you are with the same souls in each we will be with our loved ones in each I know Bob and I will be together again.

i am sorry if I have muddled this post, and I know y’all think I have gone over the edge..and maybe I have LOL They gave me ALOT of drugs and wayyy too much prep before my procedure, and I am STILL feeling the effects. I chided my DR for the 3 days I spent in the bathroom, and now I wonder why I still feel I will finally end this. There IS a part 2 to this, but I think I have rambled enough. But, it is nice to think that we will be reunited with our loved ones in our future lives. Too bad we won,t know it..or WILL we?

Happy 4th everyone, Hope everyone has family or friends to help them thru this holiday. This is the 2nd 4th without my Greg and am having a hard time with it, my girls are coming over for dinner and to do a few fireworks today then on Saturday we will go to my sisters for a huge party with family, we will see how it goes, it seems harder this year for some reason but last year it was only 2months since Greg passed so maybe I was still in shock, I don't know. everyone be safe and have a good day
