Your reply makes no sense, it is implied by the very nature of the question you pose that they are one and the same.
When Sally says she remembers being David in her past life, she is saying once upon a time I believe I was David, I died and was reborn as Sally.
Providing David wasn't alive when Sally was born, then Sally could well have been David.
If David died after Sally was born, then Sally and David would have to be two separate entities.
Remember, the human body is a physical object, vessel if you like, the soul or essence is believed to be separate from the body.
A bit like mind and brain....brain, processes cognitive functions, the mind muses, imagines, creates, and holds our understanding, personality and
Although the two work together, you only need a brain to utilise the mind...the mind is our own.
Thank you for your reply. A very well thought out reply! But I don't think you understood me thought - I put names to the individuals as a point to
make - two people (two separate beings) who allegedly had the same spirit. This is impossible.
1880-1959: David's story.
Once upon a time, there was a guy named David, he lived a turbulent life, living hand to mouth, wife died, left him to bring up 10 kids on his own
(fortunately he was a very strong man, both physically and mentally), after he retired from the docks, David spent the remainder of his days
questioning his existence, until one fateful day, he dies in his sleep of a stroke.
David's soul leaves his body, to return to source, ether, macdonalds?!
Until one day...The Soul Returns!
2003-Present Day: Sally's Story
Sally is 11 years old, having spent most of her short life til now suffering from night terrors and an almost otherworldly unwillingness to want to go
to sleep at night, scared she will never wake up again, her parents have finally referred her to a psychiatrist to try to get to the bottom of it
For Sally's parents, sally has always exhibited this uneasyness around bedtime, which they think might be linked to what she talked about when she
was about 3 or 4, Sally would say the strangest things...that she was a man really, a big strong man, used to lifting heavy stuff.
So convinced Sally was of this, one day her parents had to stop Sally from trying to lift the edge of the car to rescue Muffin Bunny's ear from
under its wheel, as they knew her tiny frame would never manage it.
The psychiatrist mumbled some mumbo jumbo about reincarnation and that perhaps Sally was remembering a past life, perhaps, this past life had met
their end centred around sleep.
Of course the psychiatrist was not entirely serious that this may be the case, but it certainly was food for thought.
Eventually Sally's reluctance to sleep and night terrors were managed through CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and she went on to live a happy and
Really reccomend watching Cloud Atlas, it's a wonderful film, which explains the idea of reincarnation beautifully.
