We’ve been visiting the “past lives” topic on the site for twenty years. I always start these posts, stating, I personally have no knowledge of any past life of my own. I have been told things over the years but they were never compelling to me. Not to say the people were wrong. Just to say, I could not relate.
My husband talked to me about his past life when were teenagers. It was not a normal topic in this time and place so I “recorded” it, meaning, it stuck with me. His story was so fascinating, it was one of my curiosities when we got back together after being apart nearly 25 years. Did he still think all this stuff?
Turns out he did still think all the stuff and for the record, I was glad. His story was compelling. I felt vindicated, holding onto it all those years so, blah, blah. I’ve written about this before.
The new thing is that I’m beginning to think I’m also a “re-run”. I don’t like this at all.
I don’t mind being plain. I don’t mind being “not special”. In fact, I prefer it, to being “flaky”. But I’m becoming concerned, this is not one and done for me. I feel distress over this, however, I also know I’ll adapt if necessary.
For anyone who may be into this, I have some questions. It seems souls can be tied together for different reasons. Love, but also hate. Or love/hate? Or love that turns to hate? Now this is theoretical…
Let’s say I have “karma” with my father. He beats the hell out of me for years and I physically suffer for the rest of my life, but I don’t retaliate. I transcend, basically. I forgive him.
Would this allow me or rather my soul, to move on? I have no sophistication on this topic at all, but this fits the narrative, I’ve heard from others, over the years.
In this imaginary scenario, it wouldn’t matter what my father did. Karma paid, our paths separated. I’ve heard over the course of my life, to leave things lie so as not to incur more karma? Not to go stab people. Well, I’ve done this. I’ve done it my whole life but now I am getting an inkling this bad news.
Again, I am making up this scenario; this is not about my father, but what I’m thinking my be the case – I’m actually still bound. Whatever is getting worked out – I am the beat-ee – with no clue how I got in this situation.
I’m asking how to exit this situation. Is there a way? Just assume the other party or parties are non-cooperative or even dead. What can I do, on my own?
To hopefully better clarify, let’s say I have a way of knowing I have been badly wronged by someone in this life and in at least one in the past. And what if I’m pretty sure the other person has progressed in this life, (because they realize they wronged me). The last life, they did not.
They know it, this life, but they’ve not atoned, that I know of. I expect they’ll be back… as will I, and we go another round?
How am I this person’s designated victim? How can I be tied by their sin?
