I posted this previously. Guess you missed it. It is just one example out of many that could be given as a reason why we don't remember our past life.
Actually, this is a similar account that was told to a friend of mine when they had a regression done.
If we remembered certain past lives, it would interfere with our progress in this lifetime.
Let's say there was two people that caused harm (emotionally/physically) to each other in a past life. So, these two people come back as mother and daughter in their current life to learn forgiveness and how to love each other, thereby releasing the negative karma they had in the past life.
If these people remembered hating each other in a past life, and what that person inflicted upon them then, it would make things a lot tougher to get past in this life.
First, maybe we *do* remember our past lives, in detail, but only *between* the end of one life and the beginning of another, when we can see the all actions (and the full spread of their consequences) of the life just concluded in the perspective of all our previous lives and lessons that came before. I think most of the lessons a lifetime has to teach only become clear to us when that life is over.
Second, suppose we do sometimes choose lifetimes in which we will remember parts of our past lives, because we have lived enough lives to not get scared or made crazy by such intrusions from the past, and in fact we're ready to learn how to use these "flashbacks" to enrich and help fine-tune our current life.
