There are some people who believe that they only have one life, and, once our current life is over, that will be it. If someone has this view, they can believe that someone would need to be crazy to believe anything else.
They will have made their mind up and there is not going to be much chance of them changing it. There are then going to be others who believe that this is the view that someone will have if they have a closed mind.
A Different Form
Someone like this could say that as human beings are made of energy, it is not possible for them to die. Therefore, how someone currently experiences life will come to an end at some point, but their essence will still exist.
The part that survives, after their physical body/space suit has shut down, will then be seen as something that will go into another body. It is then not that one has one life and that’s the end of it - there is a lot more to it.
Along with the lives that someone will have in the ‘future’, there will be the lives that they will have had in the ‘past’. At the same time, they may say that the past and the future are happening right now, with time being an illusion.
So, no matter what one’s life is like right now, they may have had lives in the past that were radically different. Each life could be seen as an opportunity for them to grow and develop.
Different Places, Different Races
In this life, someone might be black but in another life they may have been white, or vice versa. They may also have been born on the other side of the planet in another life or in another country.
Upon reflection, this may cause someone to come to the conclusion that the colour of their skin doesn’t really mean anything in the grand scheme of things. With this understanding, they can fully indentify with their race and, allow this to define how they treat people who look different, for instance, or they can see it as just another illusion.
A Positive Influence
They may even find that they were the opposite gender in the past or, if not their last life, the life before that. What has taken place in the past may fill them with strength, making it easier for them to handle their current challenges.
One will then be tapping into the power that they had in a previous life, using it to empower themselves in their current life. This can allow them to realise that they are more than their current circumstances.
Side by Side
When this takes place, one will be in this life and they will be utilising what has happened in the ‘past’. As a result of this, what took place in their ‘other lives’ won’t stop them from being able to live this life.
It would, naturally, be a waste for them to become completely absorbed in what happened in the past. The life that they have would end up being overlooked, with their focus being on what they went through, not on what they are going through.
Focusing on their past lives will be a way for them to avoid their current life, which can show how painful and unfulfilling it is. And, if one is convinced, for instance, that they were an important historical figure in the past, this is going to make it even harder for them to embrace what is going on right now.
The trouble is that the longer one focuses on the past and overlooks what is going on now, the worse their life is likely to get. Also, if they carry on in this way, they won’t be able to look back on this life in their next life and feel empowered.
Looking into what has happened in their past won’t have assisted them; it will have just made their life even worse. Their ego may have also become inflated, too, with this part of them believing that this proves that they are superior to others and that they are right.
So, instead of aiding their evolution on this planet, it will have created another block on their path. In order for their life to change, it will be essential for them to spend less time thinking about what happened in their other lives and to focus on what is happening in their current life.
A Closer Look
If doing this causes them to experience pain, it will be a good idea to look into why they are in pain. What they may find, through doing this, is that they feel powerless, as though they have no value, and disconnected.
Being into past lives will be way for them to feel empowered, to experience a sense of value, and to keep their inner emptiness at bay. This could be how they first felt during the beginning of their life.
If one can relate to this, and they no longer want to run away from their pain, they may need to reach out for external support. This can be provided by the assistance of a therapist or a healer.
