is this reconciled when the spirit passes over to the spirit realm? I.e. you die and enter the light where you are greeted by your spouse, but what
about the others you would've had in your past lives? Can this make things awkward? Even in the spirit realm!
Also what about inidviduals who have married twice or more and had two lifelong partners. How is this reconciled in the spirit realm?
Well, what, you expect all of your spouses and children to be waiting for you? It's not like you build up a collection of lovers who wait for you
after they die, anxious to give you some pre-reincarnation nookie. They also get reincarnated. The spirits of specific people may linger for a time,
but eventually, they also move on.
They are not possessions, they are people too. What happens in this life is just a phase. Just think, in your life, you may have loved, and moved on
from many people. Think of lifetimes, and the period between as seasons. You may love someone for awhile, but then you change and move on, and so do
they. In certain circumstances you will encounter the same person over and over again.
Between lifetimes, people are "generally" more aware of the flow of things, and how this works. There may be some mild awkward feelings if an old ex
of yours shows up, when you're with your current squeeze. The same as in real life.
Right now I am looking for the words to express the "freedom" so to speak. People in this world, even if they believe in an afterlife, or
reincarnation, often think of life as a singular unit. In other words, one lover, one true love, etc etc. It's tied with your personality/identity,
and all of this. When you look at the big picture, you realize there are many who can meet your needs at various levels and to varying degrees. The
sense of possession that we have in life is faded. We tend to think of things and people as property. In truth, we really have very little control
over these things, as they are also entities, fulfilling their role, whatever that might be at the time.
It is hard for us to accept that those we love can and will move on from us. In terms of eternity, the concept of soul mate loses it's common
meaning. The momentary relationships we have with this person or that are subject to change.
I hope my interpretation made it through, and what I am trying to convey is clear.
