Hope to Return a Thousand Times More
I am just as certain as you see me here that I have existed a thousand times before and I hope to return a thousand times more.
Seems apropos that I’m writing about transitioning so soon after Last Friday’s column, Empty Tomb
My friend, Retia who works part time at the Scranton Library in Madison, Connecticut, knows my faith, knows my belief system, knows my belief in an afterlife, in past lives. She found several quotes that I’ll be using here in the next couple of weeks.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was a German writer, artist, and politician. His body of work includes epic and lyric poetry written in a variety of metres and styles.
Born in 1749, Goethe was more than a writer, although he was a celebrity by 25, he was also a lawyer. Even in the 1700s reincarnation was on the radar of many people. A lawyer even. Someone as learned as a lawyer even.
This only lends further credence for me that reincarnation and past lives could actually be a reality. If people the status of Goethe wrote on the topic dating back to the 1700s, wouldn’t it seem to be the case that since at such disparate times as the 1700s and today with so many different classes of people believing and writing about this esoteric subject that there is something to it?
I relate the theory to the same story about people who have had Near Death Experiences. Everyone in every corner of the earth have seen similar things:
–A glowing white tunnel
–Souls of those they have known in life
–Rising into the air
If everyone from a variety of spiritual beliefs has seen the same thing then who is to say it doesn’t exist? As Shakespeare said in Hamlet:
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
It really comes down to faith and choice. What do you choose to have faith in?
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
