If I Were You...



What if we are all the reincarnations of each other? What if this were the true meaning of Karma? If my actions affect you, I will experience those effects in another life... yours. People who have near-death experiences often tell of reliving their lives, not only from their own perspective, but also from the point of view of those they have touched. Most teachings on reincarnation that I've seen seem to preserve the idea of separation and to be bound to linear time. This might be more manageable for the concrete mind but it can only be truth from the perspective of the ego. From the point of view of our true Self, Infinite Awareness (IA), we are One. The experience of progressive development can be accounted for by vibrational resonance. The incarnate personality that answers to my name is not really me at all. It is a particular vibrational pattern, like a musical chord. The vibration is held in place on the physical plane by the DNA codes. I AM not this vibration; I AM the One who experiences it. In theory, I could recall any incarnation that is, was or will be. In practice I only recall those with vibrational resonance. When a "past life" is recalled, it invariably has a meaningful connection to this one. Some of the incarnations of IA manifest archetypal content. They are the heroes and heroines of history, the saints and monsters. Their lives become myths. They are meta-vibrations, simple notes, as opposed to chords. The "memories" of these lives are accessible to many because they resonate with the more complex vibrations. I AM the reincarnation of Hitler. I AM the reincarnation of Buddha. I have forgotten and I have remembered. In Lak'ech. (Mayan greeting, translation: "I am another you.")

  1. Just noticed that IA (Infinite Awareness) is AI (artificial intelligence) reversed.

  2. Namaste.

    Ooh I love it! You know, for years I subscribed to the idea of reincarnation until within The Dream...I became Lucid. And the whole idea of an isolated, separate being endlessly reincarnating through space & time just got totally blown to smithereens for me. I could understand & fathom it on a linear level, but once the Whole Tapesty is viewed, it's hard to continue appreciating just one single thread.

    I couldn't find anywhere (in any book, on any website, etc.) any thing that remotely echoed my new revelation. So I just wrote my own:

    *As for the actual idea of reincarnation - It's a concept that's just way too linear for me, for I Be/Live: I AM everyONE that ever has, is, and will ever live on this, and every other planet in the multiverse. I AM all these beings Right Now. I AM not existing 'linearly', but simultaneously.

    I AM not 'reincarnating', I AM merely INcarnation - everywhere, in every time, Right Now.

    I know that's incredibly all-embracing, infinite, 'eternalistic' and far-reaching...

    ...but then so too, is The ONE Being...many; The YOUniversALL Spirit within everyONE...

    There is no separation...even across timelines or lifetimes (there only SEEMS to be - if that be your choice).

    I'll admit, this was a belief (crutch) I held onto faithfully and passionately and with deep reverence for a long time. Then at one point, once I real-eyes-ed I AM ONE with All, this particular belief system just got blown out of the water. I couldn't accept it anymore. It just appeared too 'structured', too limiting and too linear to me. It became too 'small'...

    ~~~

    BERESTHIT : The first word of The Torah (Book One of The Bible) is 'Beresthit' - which can be translated as either:

    *"In The Beginning God created Heaven and Earth"

    or,

    *"In His/Her Head, God created Heaven and Earth"

    ...which just begs the question,

    "Are we all a figment of our own ONE imagination?"

    Meditating upon it, literally shocked the 'hell' out of me!

    Too Add - I wish to eLUCIDate.

    In the past I've often wondered if the past-lives I've recalled are in fact my own or if I was merely 'plugging-into' the collective Akashic memory banks.

    Personally, I believe BOTH to be the case.

    The several past/simultaneous/future lives or incarnations I have recalled...I believe I have, because in one way or another...those incarnations were 'resonant' with the circumstances of my current incarnation's attention. They are 'mine' but not really mine 'exclusively'. For I AM 'sharing' them with All-That-I-AM.

    And the wealth of incarnations is truly infinite. Yes, those recalled lives were 'mine' as much as they are everyone else's - for WE are all ONE. So yes, in a sense, I'm tapping into the Global Soul's memory (The Akashic Records)...but am I not an aspect of the Global Soul, the Cosmic Soul, the YOUniversALL Soul? - a holographic 'offshoot' or water drop of the Whole Ocean as well as being the Whole Ocean Itself?

    I recall various incarnations because their particular 'lessons' or experiences are similar or beneficial to my present one's growth - and vice versa.

    But really, I AM Buddha as well as Bush, Mother Teresa as well as Madonna, Jesus as well as Hitler. Let's not underestimate the full infinite & eternal grandeur and creativity of the Omni-One...that we are...I AM.

    Why have many different people been hypnotically regressed to the life of Cleopatra?

    Because All is ONE. Everyone is ONE.

    If this present expression of The Omni-One for some reason feels the need to recall that particular Cleopatra expression of The Omni-One...for the benefit of some sort of soul-growth...then so shall it be, 'I' will.

    A piece of a hologram contains information of and has access to, The Whole.

    As does the most miniscule part of our DNA to the Body.

    As a waterdrop is what it is, so too is it also the Whole Ocean unto itself...

    So too is one person whom s/he is as well as being the Whole YOUniverse ItSelf all-so...

    ONE in an infinity of fun ways : I AM.

    ~~~

    Like a fractal within a fractal; like a holographic part containing the whole; like our own DNA containing the blueprint for the entire body...so too within you, do you contain the vastness of Eternity & Infinity.

    Within you lies the whole of the Akashic Records. Within you lies the great library of the YOUniverse. To 'access' anyone, go to that part within yourself where they reside - that inner reflection of the outer representation...for everyone 'out there' is merely a mirror-image (an outward projection) of an inner aspect of You.

    "As Within, So Without."

    To understand anybody...look deep inside yourself at that part of You they symbolise...

    For, until you know YOU...you will never know the YOUniverse.

    What goes around, Karma 'round?

    We are trapped in maya (the realm of a thousand distractions) by our 'karma' - the universal laws of cause & effect. The goal of the spiritual journey is to achieve (or remember) 'moksha' - or liberation from karma. Karma has been likened to the gravity of Earth - keeping us 'down here' until we become 'Light' enough to be immune to its hold...(& with this statement, I will agree with...but)

    Hindus believe we will continue to reincarnate until we have exhausted our karma and so become free of the cycle of birth & death. But here's the funny, little catch. To be free from karma is really a very simple act of realising one thing...That there is no karma! You perpetuate it by believing in it (as is the case with everything!).

    The idea of personal karma accrued by personal good & bad actions is part of the illusion of being a separate self. Freedom from karma is simply to see that it never existed. YOU are your own obstruction. Karma is just the natural law that the past creates the future, an impersonal process of life with which we become entangled when we believe ourselves to be separate individuals.

    An enlightened master has no personal karma, because s/he knows s/he is not an individual entity. S/he has awoken from the dream of 'maya' - the collective daydream. S/he sees with the One Eye - The 'I' AM. S/he becomes the One Self.

    Life continues through the laws of cause & effect, but not because of him and not to him. He has his being beyond such things. He has become Pure Consciousness merely observing 'his' thoughts & actions - & not being sucked into over-identifying with them. You may not be able to change the world but you can always change how you view the world, and this is when, paradoxically, your world will change.

    God is not a supreme being, nor a supreme state of being...God is supreme being-ness, simply being!

    To awaken from The Dream...You must firstly see that All of it is ONE.

    Does one have to be 'bound' by the past?

    What if one believes the past (and future) to be merely an illusion?

    What if one believes that NOW is all there ever is, was, and ever will be? (Yet simultaneously understanding that everything in the 'Now' is also still an elaborate illusion?)

    What if one can forgive themselves for any doubt, fear or guilt over something they may have done in this 'illusory' past?

    When does 'karma' have to end?

    ...in the lifetime after this one, or within the next second?
    ...or Right Now?

    'Who' will decide this?

    Could it possibly be You?

    Or, will it be a reflection of You?

    Could You really be this grand, this powerful, this ONEdrous?

    And do all the 'rights' have to cancel out all the 'wrongs' for karma to end?

    What if one no longer believes in Duality?

    ...Only ONEness, Unconditional Love, Infinite Acceptance, The Eternal Now, & Total Beingness?
    Could one ever do any harm against another if they understood We are all ONE (merely dreaming of being many)?

    What if one knows that 'belief' merely causes one to BE...Live - to BE their belief, and to LIVE their belief?

    What if, the entire world is ALREADY 'karmically' pure, and is playing out like a movie for You...waiting for You to simply forgive it, or, to Love it without condition, and accept it as You, as ONE - already perfect, pure, innocent, loving and infinitely compassionate & understanding?

    Could YOU be the only one, or the last one left to BECOME Infinite Love?

    ...and the Grand Play of The World, this imagined 'Construct' around you is just for your benefit, playing along, with baited breath, and waiting...for You to make the conscious choice to BECOME the Unconditional Peace & Love you wish to see?

    Could the last great 'test' of this world be up to You?

    ...for You to pass?

    Could YOU be the ONE?

    ...that everyONE is waiting for?

    Could being Karma-free really be so simple and easy?

    Could it really be just ONE Choice away?

    Only You can decide!

    God/dess, I Love You...

    'The more I learn, the more I unlearn...'

    yOUR Choice : I AM.

    Another Point of You : OM...

    ps(st) - Thank You for being the pure mirror that You are.

  3. Another Point of You, I cannot thank you enough for your One-derful reflection. It's funny you should mention Cleopatra. When I've explained this view of reincarnation to others before, I've used that same example. The idea of karma is used by ego to feed it's illusion of guilt and judgment but Infinite Awareness is all that is, so to whom could IA be indebted? When I was a teenager I dreamed that my own reflection came though a mirror and attacked me. It was the most terrifying dream I can remember. What an apt symbol it was of the ego's plight. In Lak'ech.
