vertical line Posted on Oct.12.2007 @ 07:59PM EDT by shayne
no one fears prebirth. the time before your birth. if death is prebirth and the cycles of life is life is life and death being the polarity opposite then death is prebirth. now if one could see past their prebirth. into the time of previous lives. that would be grovey.

vertical line How long time does it take to develop this ability? Like, I don`t want to spend years upon years just to discover I was Mengele or some asshole. If I could get guarantees that I was someone awesomely cool, then I guess I`d go for it=)

vertical line Yeah, I know:) Just that I have never had any real interest for past life and such. To many "uncertainties" in my belief system to have a clear stand on this issue.

But from a materialistic point of view, I am fascinated by the thought of  "There is a very real psychical link from the stone age, trough generations upon generations right up to me". When thinking about the process of coupling and exchange of body cells.

......... Hi Sayne I didnt sayI no longer want my mind to exist .......I said The thing called I would be content to not exist ....Im here or Im not ...its goin to happen weather I accept it or not so seems only logical to me to go ahead and accept that one day  "I " wont be conscience any longer .....My belife is that when your mind dies there is no more "you" your spirit doesnt float off into another body or get shipped to heaven ....just turn out the lights ....

vertical line i have no idea what that last post needs, but, beliefs are associated with health... otherwise i'd be eating a cookie right now instead

this time of year
when the leaves turn orange/red
they seem to be more sky than earth
picking up a strong color first
and then raining down color last
they are the beginning and ending as God is
