So, I just had a profound experience. I mean it really hit me hard right in the third eye.
On another thread, someone posted the video the Egg.
Here it is...
It's about reincarnation and that we're all one and that we're all part of one and ...well everything. You and me and them, we're all the same. We are the same.
Some of us/you already believe some of this or all of this.
Then at the end of the video...the woman gives her coat...the coat off of her back...maybe the only coat she has, to a freezing homeless man, because...in reality, it IS her or it is her brother. They are one.
What if we treated everyone like that, like they are us in a different form or part of our family...what if that homeless person on the street was your brother or son, would you pass them buy or would you give them the jacket off your back to stop from freezing, wouldn't you take them to a shelter and give them food and then have a long frank discussion about coming home or mental health or detox or rehabilitation...wouldn't you?
What if that nasty good for nothing kid that's always causing trouble, smoking, skateboarding, cussing...if that was your son, wouldn't you talk to him, say hi now and then to let him know you cared...model some behavior, throw him a lifeline, like some free passes to the local boxing gym. Anything to help him out?
That nasty customer...what if that was your mom, would you really tell her to F off? Or would you try to find out what's wrong with her. We're all the same family.
And yet...we, all of us, keep on walking because we think we are separate, we think we are not all one or not all related. We think we are superior.
I don't have enough coats to give to everyone, but...I can treat everyone like they are my brother or sister.
And even on here...I don't really like some of you, but I would stop and help you if you needed it. I would. That's truth, right there. Even the ones in the political thread and UFO threads that I go round and round with and even when we insult each other...if you really needed my help. I would be there for you. I would. You won't get me to vote republican next cycle, but...anything else!
The Egg. Brilliant.
20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity . Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

Reincarnation and the transmigration of souls have been popular spiritual ideas for countless centuries believed by countless people. Obviously it has had very little effect on human behaviour.
The Egg is fantasy.
