I was not sure what topic this would go in...past lives, Akashic records, books, religion but...
OK, so I am a single mother, I must be very efficient in my everyday life, all decisions must make a positive or work towards a positive goal/ending.
It is working for me, my 4yo daughter seems to help me in a weird way, not hinder me, but I will not waste my time, so to say.
I like to read, however, I find that I am very particular about subjects, etc. I enjoyed the hunger games trilogy so I wouldn't say I don't like
fiction. I must attain something positive from all that I do so I lean towards educational books. I enjoy books on Buddhism and bought a bunch to
dive into. I have also started listening to free podcasts from my iPhone which is great but also adds to this mystery...
I already know this stuff. I feel like I have already read many of the books so I either keep on reading them to confirm I was right which is fun and
rewarding (and in a way brushing up on what I learned in a past life) or I don't finish. There are many books I just havnt even read yet bc I "feel"
I already know (remember I must be efficient with my time) and don't want to waste my time reading something I already know.
This may seem like idiot jumble to most people but please know, I was not brought up knowing ANYTHING about Buddhism or knowing anyone who did.
Things just...make sense to me and I must move on if I already know it, to the next book or podcast that will teach me things.
I also had a strange experience in college when I was in a depression. I saw a vision of a spiderweb, it scared me at first (I thought, oh great,
now I am gothic) but I made my own reading into it that made sense, before I even knew anything about Buddhism or what I know now...that we are ALL
CONNECTED. One of the books I read (Tibetan book of living and dying) talks about this spider web and connectivity of all things.
Do you think I retained info from a past life? Or is there a common truth out there that I was tapping into?
