Yes, I do see a type of reincarnation. But it's not so much the human identity or perspective that reincarnates, rather it is the Soul, or our Greater Being, that is the origin of human consciousness, that probes and explores this human realm of being through individualized extensions.wushu wrote:You obviously subscribe to some form of reincarnation. I've never heard ET explain what he thinks about what happens at death. Can you explain your position on this?
It's kind of like how an actor might play one part in one movie and an entirely different role in another. It's not the character that is playing new parts (although in human terms characters are sometimes carried over into new stories), it is the actor playing new roles. The human character does not reincarnate in my view, it is the greater conscious being that is exploring new possibilities through the ongoing process of incarnation as it sees fit. There may even be simultaneous incarnations as we count time.
That said, it's not suggesting that you, or I, or whomever, ceases to exist upon death. The consciousness, the aware beingness that we recognize as self, is the Souls' own self expression in the human experience and simply wakes up to its own greater reality. It's not unlike, although a far greater awakening, than waking from a dream in which we perceived ourselves as a character in a genuine reality. How easily we abandoned identification with the dream character in favor of clearly more familiar reality. Yet we still may retain the experience of the dreamscape.
