Does Reincarnation play a role in your life? If so, how does it help you? Is there anything that you understand that can help others?
Done to me too similary. Eased the fear of death also.
reincarnation is a fascinating subject, Henry Ford said this about it.
If we think of the long view of Life then it's easier to relax wherever we are, enjoy it more and not sweat the small stuff because most likely we will get a "do over." Now that certainly takes the pressure off to perform perfectly right now!
Seasons, cycles..... repetition, constant and enigmatic. Life can be frustrating, unfair, disappointing, unpredictable and yet delightful, challenging, changing all at once. The conundrum of life, the enigma, the untamed disorder begins again."vain", "futile", "empty", "meaningless", "temporary", "transitory", or "fleeting,"
What will this year bring? Joy, disappointment, death, life
One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever. The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose. The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again. All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
May this year be good to you and yours.
I would recommend that all those who are interested in studying the subject of Reincarnation may read the book "Lives of Alcyone" by Annie Besant and CWLeadbeater. In this book the stories of 48 previous incarnations of Alcyone (ie J Krishnamurthy) have been given with great details. These narrations also give the details of the previous lives of Annie Besant and CWL who took birth in close proximity of Alcyone through these lives.These narrations show the working of the laws of Karma and the laws of Evolution/Reincarnation.
The book is available on the net at

Accepting that reincarnation happens and I am subject to it, through karma, makes me try harder, on all levels. I am more apt to think more deeply about things, especially ethics and interactions/relationships with people, all kinds of relationships, and my behavior and attitudes toward them, etc. Like Jon said, it helps me develop compassion, and that helps me keep things in perspective.
It certainly spurs me on to keep on treading The Path, particularly at those times when I get weary and would like just to sink back into a thoughtless way of living, or "go back to sleep" figuratively speaking, like the fellow in the Matrix who just wanted to go back to the way things were because he couldn't stand being "awake". I suppose we all feel like that sometimes. It is one of the biggest challenges of the spiritual path - not drowning, in the occult sense of the word.
The thought of having to go back over the same ground again and again works on me like a charm! LOL How many times does one have to stick their hand in a fire and get burned, before they grasp the fact that fire burns? Apparently quite a few, it seems! Of course, some lessons are more subtle; those are the tricky ones. But going forwards (to use a linear image), is the only way that leads out. :-)
Reincarnation plays an important roll for me when I am casting a horoscope for a client or if I am in need of understanding my own reactions from the subconcious:) I believe in an eternal soul that travels around the universe in search for a higher purpose. I use to help others finding out , using astrology to find out what sort of identity/ties the client had in previous life and what sort of issues that comes inherit along with the souls package. There are lots of different ways to do this and I have my own but the effect are always the same. When a person finds out about the previous experiences that her or his soul had gone through they could easily deal with own personal issues in this life and go forward .
