Thread Name: BS: Religious freedom, or murder?
Subject: RE: BS: Religious freedom, or murder?
Bill, as I'm sure you would expect, I can easily, even if not clearly, imagine how one might agree to or seek to 'come back' to a specific situation. Let's assume that I learned some things this time around- and failed to learn some others. Let's assume, for instance, that upon having gained power I had been abusive to those in my care. On the 'other side' I might clearly see my failure and say "I can do better than that. Let me try that again."

Or let's assume that in this life I had been oblivious to the harm I had done- my self-chosen amends might involve taking on the karma of undergoing abuse myself.

I'll go even further: I suspect that the infants and children who have died much too soon might in actuality be 'maturing' spirits who, while waiting for their next 'assignment' might offer to live the truncated life of the doomed baby.

I can't 'prove' any such thing- but I enjoy thinking such. :) I might add that as long as it does no harm to any I enjoy eccentricity, whether mine or someone else's.
