Older than anything known of, the concept of reincarnation has been around in the Indian landscape. Each family has a story of reincarnation or a legend tucked away someplace.
Been an addict to the Brian Weiss (http://www.brianweiss.com/) series and more than that the belief that there was a circle of life. If there was truth to it, then the reason we were here was far simpler than we knew, there were a zillion interconnections, and each incident or person we were close to had a pattern that was being orchestrated by someone larger than us.
As fascinated as I am by it, M asked me recently as to why i had not got a session done for myself. Sat on the chair and found out about the past lives, the reason for this one.. or take a walk into the untapped memory of the subconscious.
I froze fr a minute.
just knew that i had wondered but even though i normally leapt at all such courses was frozen
like something dark was looming there that i did not want to see or deal with, and dont know there source of this fear. Was an interesting thing to observe this fear of something that has elapsed, occurred and sits in a distant corner removed from me.
But am a firm believer in past life connections, there is no other way for me to explain the depth of knowingness that comes when u meet some people and know that you know them. Its there and for me from my world of experiences it is real.
a friend mentioned to me a baul festival that takes place in west bengal. these wandering monks converge to make music n live in a commune set up. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ezp2kpsXtyY) or maybe be a part of a sufi camp, a kind of inner wandering that is explorative but in a totally inert way.
Lord, think i run the risk of aging to become one of those aunty types, with a beady necklace, flappy clothes and super calm demeanor. That shall be a shame. Can i atleast spare the glasses?
