Oops, 1 day late again:
At 17 this quotation had some meaning for me. As I have grown and evolved through the decades and after spending several decades as a past-life therapist I know at a very deep level this is true:
“The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness. And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.” ― Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
As a child I had glimpses of other lifetimes—not totally recognized as such because I had no external references. I felt intimately familiar with Latin and Spanish cultures that no one in my family understood. The first time I saw Mexican farmworkers at age 8, I experienced that I actually should/could belong to them. Their Mayan profiles were familiar and their brown color attracted me. They felt like “real” family to me in that grocery store. My father held my hand tightly and didn’t allow me to get close to this two family group buying supplies.
Often as a child while falling asleep (in the hypnogogic state), I saw an elegant comfortable white Art Deco room and an adult woman with sleek flapper clothing walking through the room. I now have remembered that room was from my last lifetime in Berlin in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s before I escaped to Denmark to avoid the ugliness of Hitler. It is my all-time favorite room. Ah, if I were wealthy enough to replicate it now!
And now I think there is no time or space in our consciousness. We can enter a past life and change the circumstances and correct karma. And we can bring that wisdom into this lifetime. And that experience has made my life worth living and exciting.
