I just want to mention the referenances for that last post. It's from Chelsea Quinn Yarbro s Micheal books, Micheal's people and all of that. According to the material there are 7 soul levels ; only 5 of which occur on the Prime material plane.

Thank you all for the well put responces, I am slowly beguinning to realize how complex and remote the answers seem to be, I am not however discouraged in any way. The question that seems to remain with me though is, if one is an old soul and has successfully transended through the preseeding levels, when in their current state of being would the experience of past lives manifest itself and become clear to the "mind"?
When in doubt I often activly seek out answers, weather it be a small problem or a large (in my perception) one. Is that indicitive to a lack of experience on the part of my soul? and if so (shedding human boundries) is my soul in fact guiding my actions from "behind the scene's? I would atribute a small percentage of this "self doubt" to a lesser level soul as I feel that a mature one would provide some "contentment" as I had stated early on. In questioning at all I always wonder if I am asking the "right" questions, weather I ask them of other people or ask of myself.
The unknown is of concern to me yet somehow it is more so "unknowing of what exactly is unknown" that troubles me. I have seen others close to me die, one rather the other I could not bear to witness( and a cause of great regreat I'll add) I can't explain how affraid for them I was and still am, knowing what great people in life they truly were, good in every sense of the word to others as well as to themselves.
I remain convinced (for now anyways) that the ideal of "just knowing" things as others have mentioned does indeed come to us in the form of communication from the soul be it wispers or epifines, NDE"s ect ect , the only problem is will we always recieve the information that we were intended to recieve? or will some of it become "lost mail" along the way. I am finding all of the insight given to be very useful and again I give my thanks to all as I feel most if not all of you have contributed in a very personal way. I wish there was a concreate way to determine the actuall level at wich one's soul was currently located( not the physical location) for a better understanding by us all.

Years ago I wrote something like,
"Death, do not sneak on cat-feet, seeking to come upon me unawares, reluctant to frighten me. Walk to me boldly, extend your hand, and I will take it willingly."
And that's exactly how I feel.

Old soul and young soul.
If you have any thoughts about the world of mystery which is behind death or birth, you will know that this world is not governed by dualistic concept like young and old soul.
The oldest writing we have about the soul is from a man known as Kapila which many attribute some kind of similarities with Buddhism. Let see what he said:
“Souls are infinite in number and consist of pure intelligence. Each soul is independent, indivisible, unconditioned, incapable of change, immortal. But it appears that all this attributes don’t function so well when bound to matter. “
It doesn’t talk much about young and old there…because it is a human concept not a spirit concept. Therefore one has to assume that all souls are created at one point…no young and no old.

Yeah, well, my attitude about death was acquired, and has little to do with bravery. It's part of life, and besides, he and I are old acquaintances.
I didn't say friends. He isn't like that gaunt, tall, black thing with a sickle. He's most like the little short guy on Seinfeld.
