“Every soul carries with it the memories and characteristics developed during its ‘own’ mortalities and to a lesser extent, the characteristics of its various ‘mortal parents’ throughout its journey on the ‘Path of Souls’. These ‘experiences’ are what feed the growth and development of its evolution, and the knowledge it acquires on the journey is never lost.

After reading this it made me wonder… If the birds can be born with a song, why can’t we?
But in spite of ‘everything’ he’s shown me, the concept of ‘reincarnation’ is such a fundamental shift in my view on existence I’m struggling to come to terms with it.

The big problem here is it all feels ‘so damn real’. I take ‘another’ deep breath before continuing… “Ok…”
