Does a soul have a secret identity of its own, apart and seperate from those aquired by association with one or another of its 'containers', or is its identity formed entirely from a composite of (all) its past lives?
Also, can a soul ever have an identity crisis, sort of like not really knowing who or what it is, as in a period of crisis, during immature stages of its existence?
I suppose immature souls and more mature souls only differ in the accrued amount of reincarnations experienced and of lessons learned?
Can any soul having had near about a million reincarnations be able to remember them all during certain 'special' states of being?
And, since we humans apparently all have souls, are there any good 'User Manuals' available to us that could help us to better utilize our assets and take advantage of the opportunities presented to us?
Oh, and apparently our physical bodies do not come to be as they are through a process of natural evolution, but are engineered and created by ETs for the purpose of serving as 'containers' for our souls which are deposited into them at birth by the ETs?
The level of existence into which our souls are incarnated are appropriate to the level of our souls' advancement, except in cases where far more advanced souls volunteer to incarnate in lower levels to perform certain special assignments?
And the soul is what evolves gradually through a process of reincarnating repeatedly from more primitive physical 'containers' to more and more advanced physical 'containers' untill it is able to continue its 'evolution', without a physical container, as a purely spiritual energy entity, ad infinitum?
The rightful inheritance of a worthy child of God is the kingdom of heaven.

(I'm still waiting for Amazon to send me the books, and once I've read those I'll probably have some more questions to ask. I also ordered some music CDs by Wynton Marsalis, the "Carnaval" CD where he plays "Variations On Le Carnaval De Venise", is probably the best trumpet music I've heard in a while. He plays the trumpet like an alien. Carnaval season is just around the corner. I'd bet lots of 'aliens' will be visiting Rio and Venice to see the upcoming 'festivities' there? I wonder if the Miltons have anything like Carnaval?)

If there is an afterlife and your soul can exist after your physical body is gone, how come you cannot console your family and loved ones?
What I dont understand is how come you arent able to tell your loved ones that you are ok, do you know what I am saying?
I joke with my gf that if I die I am so going to haunt her and scare her all the time! And my grandparents died recently in the last few years and I know they would want to give me a sign or something to tell me they are ok. I dunno, its a confusing topic so I wanted some insight from you or anyone who cares to chime in. Thanks.

I could of been on a blissful planet but instead I'm here on this disgusting rock living a very crappy life. I could of been a beautiful alien creature but I'm some flawed human. I could of had the knowledge of gods but I have the brain of a chimp. I could of been a healthy being but I'm a very sick individual. Why again should I be happy about my sad existence these aliens you speak of created?
The more reincarnations I have on earth the more I'll just hate everything until I become a negative being of some kind.
If I wasn't here I know for fact my life would be pure bliss endless fun.
I don't mean to sound like them silly sith from star wars but maybe they are right about the light side being the evil ones. Correct me if I'm wrong but the young jedi's can't become masters until they become like them in everyway. The light side seemed like the bad guys if you looked deep into it. If you don't be like them then they keep you at low ranks sort of like with this alien thing you speak of.

What kind a being is Milton? Do you still travel with him? To whom do you think that angels send messages from?

Is the "Heaven/Hell" scenario or analogy we perceive simply how one sees themselves at this moment--here and now?
Is is that simple? Is that the secret? Wake up and see yourself differently? That this life is more about our connecting in to and being more honest and forgiving of both ourselves and others?
The old addage: The child asks the parent where they came from, and the parent details every aspect of birds and bee sex ad nauseum.....and afterwards the child says, no, I meant did I come from Chicago or Santa Barbara?
Could that be Milton, the drill sargents' way of letting us figure out a very simple notion? Your are being prepped, don't worry, be happy?
Also, It seems that almost everything I read or hear lately gives me a very distant and vague feeling that a major change is happening at a very accelerated rate. And that somehow time is running out for something.
The old messes and mistakes seem to be being pushed to conclusion--like it or not. Do I have some kind of job I am suppose to be doing given my recent past (not so good) experiences? Like it or not?
Question for Miltie, is there an impending occurance about to take place on earth that will affect humans in the near future?

I have heard people talk about old souls and new souls, and it seems everyone I have talked to has their own definition to distinguish between the two.
I'd like to hear your (or milton's) take on how the two are different, and if there's a way for a person to figure out if their own soul is old or new?
