Some people do not quite understand WHY I keep bringing up religion, God and the soul..
I had my own mystical experiences, and those who have had them simply KNOW that it is this world that is not real, or rather less real, and it is the other world, where we come from, that is reality.
This world, as Shakespeare said, is a stage — “All the world’s a stage” — a very real-seeming illusion, set up to teach us stuff. It has sets, casts of characters, scripts, audiences and critics.
How we perform in our roles determines what happens to us in the next life.
From “As You Like It,” Act II, Scene VII [All the world’s a stage]
Jaques to Duke Senior
All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts [….].Shallow people do not understand how deep Shakespeare was. He was saying something very important here — that the world literally is a holographic illusion, a staged event, a play, a setup..
“The Highwayman” by Willy Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash
I was a highwayman. Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive.
I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn of Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still.
I was a dam builder. Across the river deep and wide.
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around..I’ll always be around..and around and around and
around and around
I fly a starship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back again, and again and again and again and again….
For my sophisticated videos on reincarnation and “Are God and the soul real?”
…..Video series “Are God and the soul real?”
40% of patients brought back from the dead on the operating table reported being conscious AFTER DEATH and many saw the famous “tunnel of light”! This was the largest-ever medical study into near-death and out-of-body experiences, interviewing 2,000 people who suffered cardiac arrests at 15 hospitals in the UK, US and Austria.
As the French say, “peu des science nous éloigne de Dieu, beaucoup de science nous y ramène,” “lower science takes us away from God; higher science brings us back.”
Wolf, however, is on a crusade to say “But modern science proves the very opposite, that it is this material world that is an illusion!” This electron anomaly was observed by the great mathematician Leonhard Euler of Switzerland and the famous American scientist and politician Ben Franklin already 250 years ago, and the experiment itself was first done by the British scientist Thomas Young in 1803:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Young_(scientist) How can electrons act like both particle shooting forward (the arrows below) and yet also as waves? Why does it depend on whether you are looking at it??? What the heck is going on here? 😉 A bullet (particle) is simply not a wave. This is a definite anomaly and contradiction, suggesting God is dropping an enormous hint on us NOT to view this world as something to be taken overly seriously, but instead like a tearjerker movie or a romantic comedy. With movies, we simply accept the illogical things in the plot for the sake of the story. As the easy-going yet wise Italians say, “Si non è vero, è ben trovato.” = “If it is not true, still it is well told.”
Atheists try to debunk Wolf, a very experienced physicist, and the plain meaning of this electron double-slit experiment. They are also at pains to gloss over the “quantum leap” in modern physics, where an electron leaves an inner shell and goes instantly to an outer shell, with no lapse in time at all. But how can a physical object travel a distance in zero-comma-zero seconds? In reality, it is literally vanishing at the inner shell and re-appearing at the same time on the outer shell…. This too suggests the material world is an illusion, although a very elaborate one. The world is just a classroom for young souls, an elementary school.
There is indeed a totally opposite way to explain — that everything is real, everything is matter, even heaven and God, and where we go when we die is just to a higher-frequency area. Then there is no more dichotomy between spirit and matter, religion and science, and people have less of a sense of us talking about fairy tales here, God being unfortunately the biggest fairy tale of all to the materialists. What we really are talking about is a “multiverse,” not a universe, with many dimensions existing and all occupying the same space — but on different frequencies.
In the same way, your house is occupied by cell phone calls, tv signals, microwave, wireless internet perhaps too, and of course radio — and all are occupying and penetrating the same house from top to bottom, all co-existing, and interwoven, but usually not interfering with each other. They are usually smoothly separated (except a microwave oven can cause static on a radio). In this scientific way of seeing reality plus religion, it is normal for an electron to vanish and reappear — It ducked into another dimension, where none of the rules of our dimension apply at all. It made a shortcut.
One has to think outside the box, or one cannot explain an electron being both a particle and a wave and vanishing and reappearing elsewhere at the same moment. God is dropping here some really big hints that He exists, and if scoffers scoff, He is just fine with that too.
(But this god is neither a senile old man in a white beard nor some forgive-everything sort of yin being, or cutesy Baby Jesus. It is a realistic, stern, law-giving Father figure who gives everyone only what they deserve.)
some who wish to control us by fear of death advocate strongly that we be made atheistic, because then men will fear to die, and, thinking they have no soul (just a myth, they are told), they fear they will be dead forever.
MOST then prefer to live a long life as a slave, not a short life as a hero, and refuse to make the supreme sacrifice, laying their life down for 1) the safety and future of their women and children, and 2) the survival of nation and way of life.
Atheism = worrying about dying
Theism = God expects every man to do his duty, and you will face His fury in both life and death if you choose to live on as a coward — as your women and children are taken and physically or morally destroyed.
If you wish to join thosewho scoff at God, then you may fall into a pit of despair.

…..A FAMOUS AMERICAN SEER AND MY GRANDFATHER, FIFTEEN YEARS AFTER HIS DEATH
My encounter with one of the most reputable “seers” in America and, it seems, through her with my deceased British grandfather from Yorkshire!
A great short summary of one of the most incredible recent reincarnation cases, discussed heavily in my videos:
….Why most of us have no specific memories of earlier lives, just vague feelings or natural abilities
Because we would tend as humans to endlessly relive each failure, not only in this life, but in earlier ones as well, like a man who cannot even fall asleep, even if dead-tired, while berating himself for his shortcomings! Forgetting earlier lives is part of God’s mercy. The time when a life is reviewed is when you die and ANGELS show you a video of your life, all the good you did and all the bad as well, and then watch you react to it. But then, after reviewing the life, YOU MUST MOVE FORWARD.
Hauntingly beautiful song by the female vocalist Sissel of Norway, land of my distant ancestors
I’M READY TO GO HOME
On the street below these walls
Where I used to walk
Now I can barely crawl
All this darkness rising tall
Lord shine a light for me
I’m waiting to be called
I’m ready to go home
I’m ready to receive
Forgiveness for my sins
I’m ready to begin
Take this river to the sea
Where the Delta flows
The tide is washing over me
Guide this soul to Heaven’s door
Show me where tomorrow lies
I’m waiting to be born
I’m ready to lay down
I’m ready now to sleep
A promise I must keep
I’m ready to go home
So tired I lay down
With these memories
Breathe shallow deep inside of me
If time has run its course with me
I’m ready to go home
I’m ready to receive
Forgiveness for my sins
I’m ready to begin
When the evening shadows fall
When the time has come
I’ll let defences fall
To surrender’s to survive
I will give up everything
To those I leave behind
I’m ready to go home
I’m ready to receive
Forgiveness for my sins
I’m ready to begin
I’m ready to lay down
I’m ready now to sleep
A promise I must keep
I’m ready to go home
…..on really homely people
A lady comrade in California asked me:
I would like to know how you explain the millions of not-so-gorgeous people who do not look like Chahlize Therrrrrron or Nicole Kidman.
1) dysgenics — The best and brightest do not have enough kids, and here is a memorable stat for you: 42% of woman 42 or older with a master’s degree are childless.
2) bad karma — They got arrogant when they were all-too-beautiful in an earlier incarnation; it went to their head, they scorned others, and forgot that God is the source of all beauty — they did not make themselves! So they need to do a life as a homely person and excel by deeds, not looks.
3) they just came out of the animal stage, and look — and still have the nature of — those animals that they were. They are humanimals!
And some are very kind, trusting, loyal beings, like sheep or dogs, and others are aggressive like wolves, bears, etc. but they need to expand their talents and abilities beyond the animal stage they began at.

……One Hundred Cases of Survival After Death
Case no. 1 of life after death
The Perth Case 1
This case is taken from an extract of a letter sent by the Rev. Charles McKay, a Catholic priest in Scotland, to the Countess of Shrewsbury:
“In July, 1838, I left Edinburgh to take charge of the Perthshire missions. On my arrival at Perth, [Scotland],
I was called upon by a Presbyterian woman, Anne Simpson, who for more than a week had been in the utmost anxiety to see a priest. (This woman stated that a woman lately dead [date not given] named Maloy, slightly known to Anne Simpson, had ‘appeared to her during the night for several nights’ urging her to go to the priest, who would pay a sum of money, three and tenpence, which the deceased owed to a person not specified.)
“I made inquiry, and found that a woman of that name had died, who had acted as washer-woman and followed the regiment. Following up the inquiry I found a grocer with whom she had dealt, and on asking him if a female named Maloy owed him anything, he turned up his books, and told me that she did owe him three and tenpence. I paid the sum. Subsequently the Presbyterian woman came to me, saying that she was no more troubled.”

The uncanny case
of Carl Edon
— the Luftwaffe German who became a Yorkshireman
Jan 15 2002
The uncanny case of Carl Edon
Jan 15 2002 Mike Blackburn
For years before he was brutally murdered Carl Edon tried to convince his family that he was reincarnated. Today his astonished parents believe they have been given extraordinary photographic evidence.
(SEE PHOTOS BELOW.)
Young Middlesbrough dad Carl had spoken since he was just three years old of vivid flashbacks to a former life as a Nazi airman killed when his plane was shot down in 1942.
Now startling new photos, unearthed after dogged detective work by a local historian, reveal a chilling resemblance between Carl and a German airman, Heinrich Richter, buried in a Thornaby cemetery.
Richter, a turret gunner, perished when his Dornier bomber crashed onto a South Bank railway during a raid exactly 60 years ago today… January 15, 1942.
…..ON THE DORNIER
It was a thin, fast, maneuverable light bomber meant to take out specific military-industrial targets, not “carpet-bomb” civilian cities like Allied bombers (which thus were committing a war crime under the Hague rules of land warfare.)
The wreckage of the Dornier, damaged by anti-aircraft fire before hitting a barrage balloon, was discovered in 1997 buried off Tilbury Road – only a few hundred yards from the spot where Carl was stabbed to death two years earlier.
When the bomber was dug up with Richter’s remains inside, Carl’s parents, Jim and Val, shuddered as they recalled their son’s eerie tales of reincarnation.
But only now – as the Gazette reveals for the first time what the airman looked like – are the Coulby Newham couple looking at their son’s claims in a new light.
“It’s got to be him,” said a stunned Val, when shown a photo of the German in full uniform shortly before the crash over Teesside.
“The resemblance across the eyes and the nose is uncanny.
“Maybe this is the final piece of the jigsaw,” she said.
The striking picture was obtained after Guisborough historian and author Bill Norman tracked down Richter’s relatives in Germany for a new book.
An uncanny likeness between the two young men and the fact that they share the same scene of death more than 50 years apart are just two of the strange coincidences which have spooked Carl’s parents.
During the excavation of the German bomber it was discovered that Richter’s leg, still inside a flying boot, had been severed in the wreckage, explained Val.
“Carl used to say he lost his right leg in the crash,” she said. “And he had a birth mark at the top of that leg.”
On the day her rail worker son was murdered – by Gary Vinter, later jailed for life – he had been to Skinningrove to collect train carriages.

“The day the Dornier crashed it had bombed Skinningrove first and flew on to Middlesbrough following the railway line,” said Val.
Carl and Richter had made the same journey the day they died.
“There are just too many strange coincidences, and I think if Carl was here he’d be saying ‘Do you believe me now’?”
One of the country’s leading researchers into psychic phenomena admitted he was amazed at the details surrounding the two deaths.
“We research a lot of reincarnation cases, but not many as remarkable as this one sounds,” said David Christie-Murray, member of the Society for Psychical Research, founded in 1882 and now based in London.
“It seems to me to be a fascinating case, and one I’m sure the SPR would certainly be interested in investigating if the family wanted to.”
Carl’s experiences are already detailed in a book called The Children That Time Forgot by Peter and Mary Harrison, and on a US TV show. They’ve also been well documented in British and German newspapers, including the Gazette when Carl was just nine years old.
But his parents said he suffered taunts at school as a result of his ‘past life’ claims.
“When that started happening Carl didn’t like talking about it any more,” said his mum.
“But he always believed it.”
His dad told the Gazette he was cynical at first. “I was sick of Carl going on about it,” he said. “But I probably believe more in reincarnation now.”
The Dornier’s three other crew were buried in Thornaby after the crash in 1942, but Richter was not laid to rest alongside his colleagues until the plane was ‘rediscovered’ 55 years later by water board workers.
Val and Jim joined nearly 300 mourners at a moving funeral service for the fourth German airman.
Standing at Richter’s grave afterwards felt “eerie”, said Jim. “It was like we were re-burying Carl again. Maybe now this will be the end of it.”
Richter, who won the Iron Cross medal twice and had been wounded in action, was 24 when he was shot down and killed. Carl was just 22 when he was murdered, leaving behind heartbroken fiancee Michelle, and their two young daughters Carla and Sophie.
The detail about the birthmark is significant. In the vast compendium of reincarnation studies at the University of Virginia (see this article about Ian Stevenson, MD: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Stevenson), children who reincarnate quickly after a traumatic death often have a birthmark at the spot where they were stabbed, shot or otherwise injured.
Here is a video featuring Dr. Jim Tucker, a child psychiatrist who has continued Dr. Stevenson’s work:
Here is an accurate article about Tucker’s major book:
A fair Amazon.com review of the book:
What strikes me about Tucker, a medical doctor, is that he never, ever, ever leaves behind the scientific method or spirit. The scientific method is have a hypothesis, then gather hard facts and from them develop a theory to explain them — and provide other scientists with your methods and data and a means to do their own experiments to verify or disprove your findings…..
The book is anything but dogmatic — or full of New-Age-y flower-power assertions. The reason why the founder of Xerox Corporation (inventor of the photocopy machine, Chester Carlson (photo), a graduate of the top-ranked California Institute of Technology, funded Ian Stevenson, MD and then Jim Tucker, MD at the University of Virginia with one million dollars through his will in 1968 was their rigorous scientific work.

Die Spirituelle Welt (“The Spiritual World”)
It is appropriate for those who already accept the possibility of reincarnation but still have very reasonable and nagging questions about who, what, when, where and why. Winkler, whom I know from correspondence and reading his blog, is a former computer programmer who awoke to political issues and became a commentator on the Internet on German and European affairs.
This particular book has a strong ring of truth to it, deep in your gut, and nothing is sugar-coated or Baby-Jesus-Will-Save-You from your own folly….. In that sense it is very German — but Winkler has a delightful sense of humor and a light, easy writing style as well that I as an American loved.
This book changed my life. It is nearly finished being translated from German into English by me and my team. It was very, very real and yet inspiring to me.
Even the hardcore skeptic and NASA scientist Carl Sagan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Sagan, famous for his special TV shows about outer space in the 1980s), who founded CSICOP, the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, and dismissed almost ALL “paranormal” notions, stated that the phenomenon of children recalling exact details of the life of a dead stranger from another family and city, a person who died years or decades earlier, and also claiming very definitely to BE that person in a new life (not just having an ESP “reading” of that person) merit serious investigation.
In Wikipedia’s article on Stevenson, we read:
Stevenson s work also attracted the attention of Carl Sagan and Arthur C. Clarke who, while intrigued, felt it fell short of providing proof of reincarnation, which they both viewed as unlikely. In The Demon-Haunted World (1996), Sagan wrote that claims about reincarnation have some, though dubious, experimental support, arguing that one of three claims in parapsychology deserving serious study is that, “young children sometimes report details of a previous life, which upon checking turn out to be accurate and which they could not have known about in any other way than reincarnation.” Clarke observed that Stevenson had produced a number of studies that were “hard to explain“, then noted that accepting reincarnation raised the question of the means for personality transfer. Skeptic Sam Harris said of Stevenson “either he is a victim of truly elaborate fraud, or something interesting is going on.”
The scientist and author Carl Sagan did many admirable things that I recognize, among them explaining the mysteries of the universe and advocating a healthy skepticism about paranormal claims.
I have found over and over that the semitic idea that we have just one life and then are judged by God, or just die and go out of existence, leaves people empty and nihilistic.
The crisis comes when a seemingly very good person is murdered, or evil seems to totally triumph over good. Then people lose their faith in God, at least as the three semitic desert religions depict Him.
Rabbi Harold Kushner (I knew people in the Boston area who knew him) wrote a famous bestseller in the 1990s entitled When Bad Things Happen to Good People.
It was a very well-chosen title and subject — because when a horrible disease, crime or injustice happens, especially to “in innocent child” (as disease struck Rabbi Kushner’s own child) then we often see that they really do NOT believe in their god as propagated by judaism, saulianity or islam. They go atheist…..
“Where is God??
No! there IS no God!!”
My mother told me that my father told her “after Korea [the horrible atrocities he saw and the senseless slaughter of brave Americans in adeliberate no-win war]it was very hard to believe in God.”
I recall an Elvis Presley song about “a little black boy born on a cold gray Chicago morning in the ghetto.” The kid grows up in a violent, criminal milieu and eventually is gunned down as a teen with a pistol in his hand. Presley’s point was that kids who grow up in such surroundings are fairly unlikely to get, or stay on the “straight and narrow path” which Jesus Christ recommended toward a godly life.
…..”IN THE GHETTO” BY ELVIS PRESLEY
(The video shows scenes of Presley’s own humble origins and then his own child Priscilla.)
This is a GREAT song….. It was one of the things that made me examine my nightmares, anger and my own abuse-shattered life, and seek the counselling that helped turn my life around. It is incredibly hard to feel good about yourself if you had a very bad childhood.
So what kind of just God gives us — (as the semites preach — just
1) ONE life followed by
2) divine judgment — but
3) these lives are totally unequal? How fair is God then??
Some of us grow up in wholesome families (such as certain Mormons, Traditional Catholics and believing Protestants) and have a ten times greater chance of a happy and successful life than others. Very many these days of all races grow up having the childhood from hell.
I have seen as a high school teacher that by the 12th grade half the kids are living in a broken home — no mom-and-dad family, but a divorced single working mom, NOT there at home when the kids return from school, with a string of boyfriends going in and out…. And I can think of one case where I suspected the divorced mom’s boyfriend was abusing the daughter while the mother worked the 3-11 pm shift. The worst thing as a compassionate teacher is following the rule NOT to get involved in the private lives of our students… At most we can alert the guidance counselor, nurse or even the police, of course…. I remember one very pretty girl with beautiful long light brown hair who used to come in and cry on her desk. It was heart-rending. What are the odds that girl will grow up to be “perfectly normal”? Btw, I tried just talking a bit with her once but she just clammed up on me.)
Reincarnation answers in a satisfying and real-feeling way our questions about why life is as it is…… Why we suffer either because of
1) bad karma we must endure, for evil deeds we did that were not punished in a previous existence (as in VERY frequently the case; people get off scot-free ALL the time, although not in terms of God); or because
2) we are good people who have volunteered to experience specific challenges and trials to help us grow in understanding, empathy and even the agonies of choosing the rocky path of heroism.
Reincarnation is a profoundly Indo-European idea of personal growth through cause and effect. What you sow is what you reap. You either run or you fight.
And as Julius Caesar said about the Kelts of Gaul, their belief in reincarnation made them fearless.
The implications of reincarnation to our life’s meaning are far-reaching and massive. This doctrine and this reality are genuinely Western, and they change everything.
Wikipedia: (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Ford)
Henry Ford (July 30, 1863 April 7, 1947) was the American founder of the Ford Motor Company and father of modern assembly lines used in mass production. His introduction of the Model Tautomobile revolutionized transportation and American industry. He was a prolific inventor and was awarded 161 U.S. patents. As owner of the Ford Motor Company he became one of the richest and best-known people in the world. He is credited with “Fordism“, that is, the mass production of large numbers of inexpensive automobiles using the assembly line, coupled with high wages for his workers. Ford had a global vision, with consumerism as the key to peace. Ford did not believe in accountants; he amassed one of the world’s largest fortunes without ever having his company audited under his administration. Henry Ford’s intense commitment to lowering costs resulted in many technical and business innovations, including a franchise system that put a dealership in every city in North America, and in major cities on six continents.
In 1923, [Henry] Ford’s pastor, and head of his sociology department, Episcopal minister Samuel S. Marquis, claimed that Ford believed, or “once believed” in reincarnation. Though it is unclear whether or how long Ford kept such a belief, the San Francisco Examiner from August 26, 1928, published a quote which described Ford’s beliefs:
I adopted the theory of Reincarnation when I was twenty six. [JdN: He was then 60 years old.] Religion offered nothing to the point. Even work could not give me complete satisfaction. Work is futile if we cannot utilize the experience we collect in one life in the next.
When I discovered Reincarnation it was as if I had found a universal plan. I realized that there was a chance to work out my ideas. Time was no longer limited. I was no longer a slave to the hands of the clock.
Genius is experience. Some seem to think that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives. Some are older souls than others, and so they know more.
The discovery of reincarnation put my mind at ease. If you preserve a record of this conversation, write it so that it puts men s minds at ease. I would like to communicate to others the calmness that the long view of life gives to us.
…..ANOTHER NEW AGE LIBERAL HIPPIE WHO BELIEVED FIRMLY IN REINCARNATION
(DO YOU RECOGNIZE THIS MAN’S FACE?)
General George Patton in WWII
[JdN: I have corrected a few punctuation errors and slightly shortened the essay below, of which the original version is found here: http://www.reversespins.com/patton.html]
Patton Movie Script: Dialogue taken from movie.
Scene descriptions from Reverse Spins Editor.
Three men in W.W. II uniforms (two Generals) traveling down a North African road in a jeep.
General George S. Patton (George C. Scott): “Hold it! Turn right here.”
Driver: “But sir, the battlefield is straight ahead.”
Patton: “Please don’t argue with me Sergeant. I can smell a battlefield.”
General Omar Bradley (Karl Malden): ” He was out here just yesterday George.”
Patton: (points with his riding crop) “It’s over there, turn right, damn it!”
The jeep goes off road, passing some turbaned North Africans on donkeys and then comes upon some Romanesque ruins. Patton gets out, followed by Bradley. A haunting echo of horns plays in the background as if replaying some ancient charge of a long forgotten battle.
Patton: “It was here. The battlefield was here. The Carthaginians defending the city were attacked by three Roman Legions. Carthaginians were proud and brave but they couldn’t hold. They were massacred. Arab women stripped them of their tunics and their swords and lances. The soldiers lay naked in the sun, two thousand years ago; and I was here.”
Patton, on bended knee, pauses, smiles knowingly, turns to a sometimes bemused Bradley and says:
Patton: “You don’t believe me, do you Brad? You know what the poet said,
‘Through the travail of ages,
midst the pomp and toils of war,
have I fought and strove and perished,
countless times among the stars.
As if through a glass and darkly,
the age old strife I see,
when I fought in many guises and many names,
but always me.'” *
Patton: “Do you know who the poet was?”
Bradley [Smiles slightly and shakes his head, no.]
A particularly evocative scene from the movie Patton, is it not? You get the sense that he actually remembers the terrible scene of his fallen comrades. But what of his modern day army, those men he led in World War II? Tens of thousands of them willingly trusted his judgement in battle. Would they also follow him in matters of the spirit? Would those who believe he was brilliant in battle also believe that that insightfulness can be brought to bear in other areas of life?
George Patton believed in reincarnation. He remembered fighting the Romans as a Carthaginian. Patton also believed he was with Napoleon as the flamboyant and daring Marshal Ney.
I will make the case that one of America’s greatest generals, Patton, was one of history’s greatest generals, Hannibal… through both parallels (habits ingrained) and lessons learned (opposite courses of action). Many can be explained as coincidences but then, if there is such a thing as reincarnation, ‘there are no accidents.’ Do great generals just sprout up or are they made over countless lifetimes, perfecting and honing their abilities? You be the judge:
1. Both grew up in wealthy families.
2. “I swear that so soon as age will permit . . . I will use fire and steel to arrest the destiny of Rome.” – A very young Hannibal Barca said this while standing next to his father, before an altar. George Patton decided during childhood that his goal in life was to be a hero in the mold of ancient Greek heroes. His father read to him Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey until the boy could recite the lines himself.3. Both were avid horsemen.
4. Both entered the infantry. Patton had several other choices. Hannibal had only two. Carthage was a famous seafaring city also.
5. Both cut their teeth in battle in a Spanish-speaking country, Patton in Mexico and Hannibal in Spain.
6. Both were enamored with the use of heavy armor. Patton with his tanks and Hannibal utilized armor-plated elephants like no one before or since, although they were often ineffective. He must have been pretty pleased with the new innovation of tanks.
7. Hannibal’s final defeat happened in North Africa. Patton joins WWII by landing in North Africa. He rectifies the karmic record by winninng his first major engagement.
8. The Roman consul Scipio studied Hannibal’s tactics to finally defeat him at Zama. (Among some of these were the use of horns which were blown to scare the charging elephants into retreat, causing havoc in the advancing Carthaginian lines.) Patton studied Rommel’s book and tactics to defeat his Panzer battalion in North Africa. It would be an ironic case of karmic justice if Rommel and Scipio were one and the same.

9. Hannibal led one of the greatest, if not THE greatest march in history. With approximately 60,000 men, 20,000 or so cavalry and 100 elephants, he started from Spain; crossed the Rhone River in France; then crossed the Alps ……in winter!…. to attack Italy from the north. Patton was famous for getting his troops to move faster and beyond the expectations of both the Allies and the German enemy. His Third Army ‘end run’ through France is a prime example. By ‘coincidence’ the longest terrain Hannibal had to cross was France as well.
10. Both of them would find ways to overcome obstacles that would stop others in their tracks, literally. They were both adept at crossing rivers. When crossing the Rhone, Hannibal created a gigantic raft covered in dirt and plants to fool the elephants into getting on board. It worked.
In a war game before WWII, Patton had to cross rivers without using any existing bridge. A lieutenant came upon a tank sitting in a stream with only its turret showing. Patton said to him: “Their speed was not high enough when they hit the water. I’m sure they could float all the way across the stream if they had hit the water at top speed! We gotta be able to cross this kind of stuff without bridges. It takes too much time to build a pontoon bridge for these little streams.” He then proceeded to back up his tank 100 yards. The driver gunned it with only Patton sticking out of the turret. Patton braced himself as the impact created a great splash. The tank floated for a moment, the engine sputtered and the tracks finally caught hold on the other side, lifting the drenched tank to the opposite bank. (From General Patton’s Principles by Porter Williamson)
11. There are two of Patton’s principles that Williamson extrapolated from that experience. They are in Patton’s words:
1) We can always learn from each other.You watch me cross this stream.You taught me that you reserve officers can solve problems. Let me show you how to get a tank across a river!” and
20 “Always do everything you expect of the men you command.” These principles are perfectly consistent with the M. O. of Hannibal. He was with the men every step of the way from Spain, into the Alps and on to the plains of Italy, sharing their difficulties and triumphs.

Hasdrubal, Hannibal’s brother (sometimes described as his brother-in-law) comes from Spain, crosses France and the Alps to aid Hannibal; only to be defeated and killed almost immediately upon entering Italy. His head is sent to Hannibal’s camp. This had to be a devasting series of events for Hannnibal. First, he did not know that Hasdrubal was coming to his aid. When he did find out, couriers were constantly being intercepted by the Romans. He did not know the true situation and so decides to wait in the south. The loss of Hasdrubal’s 30,000-man army signaled a change in the fortunes of Hannibal. The unexpectant arrival of Hasdrubal’s head must have been unnerving. Could it have had such an emotional impact that it would cloud his judgement in a future life? Patton’s worst fiasco of the war was his ill-conceived plan to liberate the Allied prisoners of war in a prison camp at Hammelburg, Germany. He did not have enough intel, so not enough troops were sent. Not only were the prisoners recaptured, but the troops he sent were captured also. Why the error in judgement? His son-in-law was a POW in that camp. Could this be the hidden cause and effect behind a failed mission that has baffled historians to this day?
13. Hannibal spent about 17 years trying to subdue Rome. In retrospect, his greatest error was in not attacking Rome directly. Some experts say he lacked siege equipment therefore he didn’t try; or that he didn’t want to destroy Rome, just split off city-states to reduce its power. It would be his undoing. Patton, having learned from that mistake over 2,000 years ago, was relentless in forging ahead whenever he attacked. First he raced Monty to Messina and probably would have finally been able to attack Rome, 2,000 years later, through Anzio if not for the infamous ‘slapping’ incident. He did prove for the first time in WWII that the Americans were a highly effective fighting force. When he resumed command, he made a beeline for Berlin. They had to slow him down, in fact. (FDR had promised Stalin Eastern Europe. If Patton’s Third Army had liberated Eastern Europe before the Soviets arrived, it would have been difficult politically for Roosevelt or Truman to just let those US-occupied countries become communist.
14. Elephants turned back on his own troops help to defeat Hannibal at Zama. Lack of gasoline slowed down Patton’s heavy armor.
15. Both fought martial, warlike states.
16. For a short while after his defeat, Hannibal ruled Carthage with democratic principles, trying to reduce the power of the oligarchy. That didn’t sit well with the powers that be. He was forced to leave. Patton refused to blindly condemn all Germans, even the SS, despite media pressure. He was only interested in punishing the “Nazis.” Needless to say, this put him at odds with the press and the higher brass, especially Eisenhower.
18. Both were an anathema to ruling governments once the fighting stopped. Hannibal was hounded all across the Mediterranean once he was forced to leave Carthage. Patton was a duck out of water in administering the conquered land.
19. Both men died a strange death. Chased till he could take it no more, Hannibal committed suicide. Patton died an innocuous death in a minor traffic accident, though many believe to this day there was foul play.
20. Both had an endearing personality and charisma to spare. Although each undoubtedly had a strong ego, their men would follow them anywhere. Indeed, no one has ever matched Hannibal’s ability. He kept a massive force of mercenaries together for over 15 years, on foreign soil without one mutiny.
21. Now look again at the two pictures you first saw at the top of this essay, but this time more closely.
Compare the mouth, chin, nose and eyes. The bust of Hannibal dates to about the Second Punic War. It was originally found at the ancient city-state of Capua in Italia. Capua was closely allied to the general, and it possibly commissioned the bust in honor of him. It also corresponds well with Carthago-Phoenicians coins and may be said to be a true likeness of Hannibal. In addition, artists and sculptors sometimes have a knack for tuning into the soul of an individual, capturing the true essence of the man.

The death of the Roman Consul Paulus at Cannae
Before Hannibal’s greatest battle and Rome’s worst defeat in history, Cannae, he stood with his commanders overlooking a terrifying sight…. Roman legions and cavalry that outnumbered them two-to-one. One of his followers, called Gisgo, a Carthaginian of equal rank with himself, told him that the numbers of the enemy were astonishing; to which Hannibal replied with a serious countenance,
“There is one thing, Gisgo, yet more astonishing, which you take no notice of.”
And when Gisgo inquired what, answered, that
“In all those great numbers before us, there is not one man called Gisgo.”
This unexpected jest of their general made all the company laugh, and as they came down from the hill, they told it to those whom they met, which caused a general laughter amongst them all.

[ If that doesn’t sound like Patton, I don’t know what does!— the editor]
Captain George S. Patton had never before visited Langres, a small town in northeastern France. But in December 1917, during WWI, having just arrived to operate a tank school, the American newcomer declined the offer of a local liaison officer to show him around the town, once the site of a Roman military camp.
“You don’t have to,” Patton told the surprised young man, “I know it well.” A staunch believer in reincarnation, Patton felt sure that he had been to France before– as a Roman legionnaire. As he led the way through the area, he pointed out the sites of the ancient Roman temples and amphitheater, the drill ground, and the forum, even showing a spot where Julius Caesar had made his camp.
It was, Patton later told his nephew, : “As if someone were at my ear whispering the directions” … from The Many Incarnations of George S. Patton

Patton Movie Script: Dialogue taken from movie.
Scene descriptions from Reverse Spins Editor.
After Patton finishes speaking French to an aide, the scene shifts to an elegant dinner. Patton is surrounded by senior British officers. A few American officers are at the far end of the table.The British officer to his left compliments George on the fine wine. Patton’s culture and knowledge of history is apparent. The ambience is set for an unusual revelation. Patton turns to Sir Harold on his right, the highest ranking Brit there and says:
Patton: “I think it was Alcibiades in the Peloponnesian War , ah, 415 B.C., he said , ‘if Siracusa falls, all Sicily falls, and then Italy.’ He knew, you see, that Syracuse was the jugular of the island, and old Alcibiades always went for the throat. I propose to take Sicily in the same way …”
Patton gives a short explanation of the plan using a map. The British are impressed. Patton raises his glass in a toast and says:
Patton: “To the conquest of Sicily.”
Sir Harold: “You know George, you’d have made a great Marshal for Napoleon, if you had lived in the 18th century.”
Patton: “But I did Sir Harold, I did.”
Everyone laughs, no one harder than Sir Harold and Patton. The toast is finished and the scene ends.

This article is fairly accurate:
What it does NOT go into is WHY rulers would discourage acceptance of reincarnation…..because they want subjects who are afraid to die.
People afraid to die do not revolt.
Most Christians do NOT really believe in God or the afterlife — not as their faith teaches them. You can see it by their EXTREME fear of death (which shows they don’t REALLY believe in the Christian heaven) and by their behavior in life, which is shameless and shows no fear of divine retribution.
They act like atheists!
….atheists as in Dostoyevsky’s famous proverb:
If there is no God, everything is permitted.
They act like people who think they have just one life to live and they might as well “grab all the gusto they can.”
Thus this adultery website, with supposedly 14 MILLION members, which asserts that “life is short”:
AND THAT IS WHAT THE NIHILISTS WANT: A HEDONISTIC PEOPLE SEEKING ANIMAL PLEASURES AND TERRIFIED TO DIE — the GOYEEM, in Hebrew, “the CATTLE.” A totally dereligionized, despiritualized animal herd…..focused on stomach and genitalia, pursing pleasure and fleeing pain.
Solutreanism is the certainty that every thought, word and deed, and every duty peformed or NOT performed, has eternal consequences, and that in the moment of death you SEE the effects of your life on the lives of others.
The famous Viking prayer, the real kind of prayer Vikings would said as death or victory approached, with words taken from various heathen Germanic sources.
…..A MARINE FROM WISCONSIN WRITES
I got a HUGE response to a radio show I did on reincarnation and typical of it was men who told me they felt a hypnotic attraction to the SS as small boys, and a horror of cold and snow also……
Here is what a new friend and comrade wrote me, also a former Marine with Heartland roots:
* * *
I never give reincarnation a real lot of thought, but have thought about it some. I think it sure is possible.
Now you have read me online talking about my German heritage.
Well, I can remember as a kid…. I think maybe in the fourth grade (I went to a Catholic grade school) we were doing book reports. I don’t remember what book report or subject I was doing, but a friend of mine (I still remember him and this moment I’m about to tell you about, and that was 30 years ago) was doing his book report on WWII.
Well, Jack had some books — on the Army, Navy, Marines and so forth. No big deal, and I didn’t give them a second thought. Then I saw one book he had. It was Waffen SS — the Asphalt Soldiers. I grabbed that book as if I were mesmerized. I just looked at the cover in a daze and quickly thumbed through the pictures like I was looking for someone or something. I begged him to let me borrow it, and he did. I ran home with it and studied this book from cover to cover. I actually thought I knew these men. I was more giddy about this book that I came across then I would have been at Christmas receiving a train.
Now I was maybe eight years old and felt so strongly about these SS men. Also, when growing up as a kid — I have long since grown out of it — I hated winter and the cold. Growing up, I would get upset and almost cry over icy cold weather. I live in Wisconsin and winters can be rough. It was something about winter I just could not stand. I was miserable and wished for warm weather. My cousins or sisters never gave winter a second thought, but for me I thought it was tragic. I didn’t join the Marines because I was a wimp, but the cold really bothered me…..

Ancestor Worship and High Intelligence
Spending time thinking about your ancestors has been proven to boost intelligence and emotional confidence in a ground-breaking study conducted by a group of Psychologists in Germany and Austria.
The paper which was published in the European Journal of Social Psychology showed in four separate studies that test subjects who were asked to engage in thinking positively about their ancestors before taking part in a series of intelligence tests scored significantly higher scores than those who were not.
In the first experiment, three groups were asked either to think about their deep roots in the 15th century, their great grandparents or nothing at all.
Those who were asked to think about their ancestors were specifically told to imagine their lives, their professions, their family and the struggles they would have faced.
The results showed that both the groups who looked back had significantly stronger results than did the control group who did not.
The second study was less explicit the test subjects were either asked, or not, to construct a family-tree before the tests.
This would have involved thinking about their family in some detail but meant the experimenters did not need to be so specific in their orders.
Results were much the same and reinforced those of first experiment.
Also tested in this case was perceived life control (meaning the subjects perception of their ability to control their life and overcome problems) which was shown to have been increased in those groups who took part in the family tree building.
A third test was conducted where the groups were split between thinking about their distant ancestors (all dead), thinking about their grand-parents and great grandparents (still alive) or thinking about a close living friend.
Results showed no difference between close or distant relatives but the same significant improvement in test scores by both these groups compared to those who simply thought about a close living friend.
In a similar forth test the experimenters instructed the test subjects to think either positively or negatively about their ancestors. Once again, both groups outperformed the control group.
Therefore, it seems that whether we are critical or favourable about our ancestors, close or distant, the simple act of dwelling on this subject will boost both your intelligence and emotional health.

….More science about reincarnation
Scientific Approach to Reincarnation and the Journey of Souls After Death
Science and spirituality have split the public’s opinions on the matter of reincarnation. The two sides are evident; science proponents believe biological death to be the absolute end of our human experience, whereas spiritualists believe that our bodies are physical vessels for an eternal energetic aspect of our consciousness called the soul, which implants itself into a new body after the previous body has died.
Many popular religions, such as Christianity also refute the idea of reincarnation because it contradicts the belief systems within the theologies which state that there is a place where sinners go after death called Hell and a place where the devoted go called Heaven. It is becoming known that the major religions were using these notions as a control mechanism to manipulate the masses through the use of fear.
It wasn’t until around the 17th century when science began to influence people s belief systems due to the continued development of the scientific method and advancements with the laws of nature. This system challenged any truth that had no physical proof, and so began science’s dominance in human society. The scientific systems that were established provided many innovations and advancements for the human race, but there were still many questions that could not be answered by the scientific community, such as various paranormal phenomena and other impossible miracles in nature.
The 20th century ignited a new wave of science that dealt with the exploration of consciousness, psychedelics, and paranormal psychology that collectively aimed to connect the spiritual and scientific communities. Instances of near-death and out-of-body experiences during which people were consciously aware, after being declared clinically dead, began to test the hard facts that science had previously established.
Today these cases are still widely reported and there are remarkable similarities between the reports all over the world. Dr. Pim van Lommel [r.], a cardiologist in the Netherlands, conducted the largest hospital-based study of NDEs (“Near Death Experiences”), years after hearing a patient report seeing a tunnel, a light, and beautiful colors and hearing wonderful music during a clinical death in 1969. Dr. Lommel was inspired to research the matter further after hearing a detailed near-death experience of someone who had been clinically dead for six minutes.
After reading [this] book I started to interview my patients who had survived a cardiac arrest. To my great surprise, within two years about fifty patients told me about their NDE.
So, in 1988 we started a prospective study of 344 consecutive survivors of cardiac arrest in ten Dutch hospitals 62 patients (18%) reported some recollection of the time of clinical death. About 50% of the patients with an NDE reported awareness of being dead, or had positive emotions, 30% reported moving through a tunnel, had an observation of a celestial landscape, or had a meeting with deceased relatives. About 25% of the patients with an NDE had an out-of-body experience, had communication with the light or observed colours, 13% experienced a life review, and 8% experienced a border.
Patients with a NDE did not show any fear of death, they strongly believed in an afterlife, and their insight in what is important in life had changed: love and compassion for oneself, for others, and for nature. They now understood the cosmic law that everything one does to others will ultimately be returned to oneself: hatred and violence as well as love and compassion. Remarkably, there was often evidence of increased intuitive feelings. (David Wilcock’ s The Synchronicity Key: The Hidden Intelligence Guiding the Universe and You )
Evidence of life after death continued to rise with the ground-breaking addition of work from hypnotherapists such as Dolores Cannon, Dr. Ian Stevenson and Dr. Michael Newton. With over 50 years of client-session information documenting people s subconscious memories of past lives and even memories of the time in between two lives, something has to be said about evidence from the doctor’s research supporting reincarnation. Dr. Newton explains that people under hypnosis are not dreaming or hallucinating, and in this state they are not capable of lying. They report whatever they see and hear in their subconscious minds as if everything is a literal observation. While under hypnosis, it is possible for them to misinterpret something they are seeing, but they will not report on anything they do not feel to be the literal truth.
I also found that it did not matter if a person was an atheist, deeply religious, or believed in any philosophical persuasion. Once they were in the proper superconscious state of hypnosis, all were consistent in their reports . Dr. Newton in David Wilcock’s The Synchronicity Key: The Hidden Intelligence Guiding the Universe and You .
Dr. Michael Newton discussing how past-life regression became a part of his practice
Interestingly, Dr. Newton also reported that many clients were hesitant to reveal too much about their time between lives, almost as if they were following a universal code of ethics of sorts, where the information was not supposed to be revealed to mankind for a reason. Over the years Dr. Newton noted similarities among clients’ descriptions, ultimately putting together a picture of the process that our soul goes through from the moment we die to the moment we are reborn . These are the stages that he described:
1.) Death and departure Most clients recall looking down at their body and seeing people mourning over their death. Some people reported staying around their loved ones until after their funeral. During this time clients could feel a pull towards a light, and described a tunnel of sorts to get there.
2.) Gateway to the spirit world This is the stage where clients report moving through the tunnel and reaching the light at the end. Location of the tunnel varies, as some say it appears right above their bodies and others say they have to travel above the Earth to reach it. After reaching the end of the tunnel clients almost always describe in varying ways beautiful visions, music, and scenery. Dr. Newton suggests that these images are beloved memories from our lives, to help give a feeling of familiarity during such an overwhelming process. Younger souls may feel sad or confused during this time, and it s reported that their guides will come to assist and comfort.
3.) Homecoming Here we are greeted by souls who are close to us. They appear as luminous beings who sometimes project faces of people who are still alive in a physicality because our souls only project a certain percentage of itself into the physical body, so there will always be a part of the soul existing in the spirit realm. During this stage the soul begins to remember more about the afterlife and also their previous lives, feeling more at ease with the process. Souls which have committed murder or suicide will analyze their actions with their guide and decide on an appropriate path to begin almost immediately.
4.) Orientation During the orientation stage a soul will shed any regret/doubt/sadness/traumatic memories from its previous life by going through what clients describe as a shower of light. This renews the soul’s vibrancy and restores it to its original vibration. Afterwards, we discuss with our guide everything that has happened in our life and decide whether or not we lived up to our expectations, how we dealt with those incidents, and if the lessons need to be repeated in the next life.
5.) Transition After we have completed our light shower and have worked through our previous life, we then move onto what most describe as the most breathtaking visions of the entire journey. Here we see a mega-hub of souls at the same stage, all moving through beautiful tunnels of light to their destination. Clients describe this moment as exciting because there is no darkness, just pure light, and we are also on our way to meet up with our soul family, souls who are at a similar stage in their evolution and who we shared lives with. Once we meet up with these souls, we usually compare experiences and learn from each other. These are souls that we keep reincarnating with over and over again, playing various roles with each other such as partners, brothers/sisters, parents, children, etc. Sometimes souls will be present but dimmer and quieter than others, and that is because they are still projecting a physicality at that moment. Another crucial aspect of this stage is to meet a grand counsel that oversees our previous life, going into more detail about the experiences and lessons learned.
6.) Placement This stage is almost like a school where larger groups of soul families (up to thousands) who incarnate around each other in cycles learn about their previous experiences. Here clients report projecting into specific scenes from their previous life and into other peoples’ minds to gain a full understanding of the larger picture. Here we feel what others felt to learn how we hurt people in certain situations. This stage can also see the larger soul groups connecting in circles, sharing more ideas, singing, and experiencing other joyful events.
7.) Life selection During this stage we move to a large sphere of light where we then choose our next life path. We are able to see multiple paths and are able to temporarily project into these lives to feel which one would be most appropriate. We also have the ability to fast forward through the timelines to see critical events that will happen. Some souls will choose greater challenges to experience such as a disability or premature death.
8.) Choosing a new body – This process is a part of the previous life selection stage, but has a separate categorization because it focuses on the physical appearance that we will possess in the next life. This choice vastly affects our experience, so it usually takes much thought as to what it will be. If you were obese in one life, chances are you will choose to be skinny the next, etc.
9.) Preparation and embarkation After choosing our life path, next we meet up with our soul group, the people who will play roles in the next life, to do extensive planning and to create synchronicities and cues that will guide us throughout our life. Higher-level guides also help to plan out specific symbols we will see or hear that will trigger certain thoughts and actions at specific times. After the synchronicities are decided, we once again meet with a counsel to go over our goals and plans for the next life. This meeting is also to encourage us to have patience, to hold true to our values, to trust ourselves in the midst of difficult situations, and to avoid indulging in anger and negativity.
10.) Rebirth Clients report traveling back to Earth through the same tunnel they left in, entering the mother s womb. Until the age of 5, the soul is able to leave the baby s body to travel and meet up with other souls if it wishes, but will snap back to the body if the baby is in any turmoil. During the first few years the soul will work to integrate its energy with the brain.
This outline of our experience between lives is based on decades worth of research, and, as Dr. Newton and other hypnotherapists state, clients under such hypnotic states will never lie and will only describe what they are actually seeing. How is it that almost everyone who undergoes hypnotherapy or who have NDE or OOB experiences, regardless of whatever religious or cultural background they come from, report such similar experiences? Could it be merely coincidental? How is it that people recall these kinds of experiences after being declared clinically dead?
These are the sorts of questions that can only be answered by the assimilation of science and spirituality. In the years to come we will witness more of this conjunction between two seemingly unrelated spectrums, which will ultimately bring us closer to an understanding of life, death, and consciousness as never understood before.

“I look upon death to be as necessary to the constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning.” And, “Finding myself to exist in the world, I believe I shall, in some shape or other always exist.”
Jack London, author, best known for book Call of the Wild
“I did not begin when I was born, nor when I was conceived. I have been growing, developing, through incalculable myriads of millenniums. All my previous selves have their voices, echoes, promptings in me. Oh, incalculable times again shall I be born.”
Napoleon was fond of telling his generals that he believed in the law of reincarnation and even told them who he believed to have been in a previous life.
“I have been born more times than anybody except Krishna.”
“As we live through thousands of dreams in our present life, so is our present life only one of many thousands of such lives which we enter from the other more real life and then return after death. Our life is but one of the dreams of that more real life, and so it is endlessly, until the very last one, the very real the life of God.”
“I adopted the theory of reincarnation when I was 26. Genius is experience. Some think to seem that it is a gift or talent, but it is the fruit of long experience in many lives”.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, (German poet, playwright and scientist)
“As long as you are not aware of the continual law of Die and Be Again, you are merely a vague guest on a dark Earth.”
“Live so that thou mayest desire to live again – that is thy duty – for in any case thou wilt live again!”
“I cannot think of permanent enmity between man and man, and believing as I do in the theory of reincarnation, I live in the hope that if not in this birth, in some other birth I shall be able to hug all of humanity in friendly embrace.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The soul comes from without into the human body, as into a temporary abode, and it goes out of it anew it passes into other habitations, for the soul is immortal.” “It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals? and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well, in some strange new disguise.”
General George S. Patton
“So as through a glass and darkly, the age long strife I see, Where I fought in many guises, many names, but always me.”
“Reincarnation contains a most comforting explanation of reality by means of which Indian thought surmounts difficulties which baffle the thinkers of Europe.”
“I know I am deathless. No doubt I have died myself ten thousand times before. I laugh at what you call dissolution, and I know the amplitude of time.”
“Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting; The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting. And cometh from afar.”
Jalalu Rumi (Islamic Poet of the 13th century)
“I died as a mineral and became a plant, I died as a plant and rose to animal, I died as animal and I was man. Why should I fear ? When was I less by dying?”
“My life often seemed to me like a story that has no beginning and no end. I had the feeling that I was an historical fragment, an excerpt for which the preceding and succeeding text was missing. I could well imagine that I might have lived in former centuries and there encountered questions I was not yet able to answer; that I had been born again because I had not fulfilled the task given to me.”
Henry David Thoreau
“Why should we be startled by death? Life is a constant putting off of the mortal coil – coat, cuticle, flesh and bones, all old clothes.”
“I am confident that there truly is such a thing as living again, that the living spring from the dead, and that the souls of the dead are in existence.”
Jesus Christ in Gnostic Gospels: Pistis Sophia
“Souls are poured from one into another of different kinds of bodies of the world.”
It is not more surprising to be born twice than once; everything in nature is resurrection.”
“God generates beings, and sends them back over and over again, till they return to Him.”
Josephus (most well known Jewish historian from the time of Jesus)
“All pure and holy spirits live on in heavenly places, and in course of time they are again sent down to inhabit righteous bodies.”
Honor� Balzac (French writer)
“All human beings go through a previous life… Who knows how many fleshly forms the heir of heaven occupies before he can be brought to understand the value of that silence and solitude of spiritual worlds?”
Arthur Schopenhauer (Philosopher)
“Were an Asiatic to ask me for a definition of Europe, I should be forced to answer him: It is that part of the world which is haunted by the incredible delusion that man was created out of nothing, and that his present birth is his first entrance into life.”
Paul Gauguin (French post-impressionist painter)
“When the physical organism breaks up, the soul survives. It then takes on another body.”
“Friends are all souls that we’ve known in other lives. We’re drawn to each other. Even if I have only known them a day., it doesn’t matter. I’m not going to wait till I have known them for two years, because anyway, we must have met somewhere before, you know.”
Among the ancient Greeks, reincarnation was a doctrine closely associated with the followers of the philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras. According to Pythagorean teaching, the soul survives physical death.. After a series of reincarnations each one following a period of psychic cleansing in spiritual environments the soul becomes free eternally from the cycle of reincarnations.
Margi had a boyfriend for years who was a very skilled, gifted artistic painter named Terry. Then around 1994 he got involved with a Jewess, she got him into lucrative Jew-owned galleries, told heim “what would sell,” and his art turned into race-mixing and forlorn, lost-looking, naked white women…..
