If you watch the whole thing he says an old soul is no better than a young soul. Just like an old person is no better than a young person just
because they are older. According to him, if you are an older soul, you have already done horrible things in previous lives so you aren't off the
In many ways it seems like a late stage young soul is the ideal human being. They are into life, they try to be good human beings, good family men
and women, they vote, work hard etc. Imagine if our world wasn't so negative, their lack of thinking outside the box would be no issue - if our
world wasn't run on greed, and we weren't fed lies religiously they would be the perfect person. They just wouldn't live a very deep life (though
surely they would have peak experiences from time to time), but it would still be a very meaningful one.
He even said that many bums and homeless people are old souls. That's not really bragging for old souls.
Really it seems like when we become mature/old souls according to this, we overthink things and are conflicted inside, or we become so spiritually
weary that we can't do much of anything at all. I guess late in the old soul stage, hopefully is when that person learns to live with his or her own
weariness and lack of attachment, and manage his or her energy to the fullest (because there isn't much left). Wouldn't that be tricky, to have all
this raw compassion inside of you but disenfranchised/unattached. It sounds good at first but you try to be that way for a little while, it takes
time (maybe lifetimes) to learn to live like that effectively in reality, without being frustrated with it's own weaknesses. It's not some magic
But that's not going to make any sense to anyone who didn't watch the video. I'm not talking generally I am talking based on the video. I don't
go around thinking in these terms all the time. I am trying to understand the point of view, and giving the man who made the movies the benefit of
the doubt for discussion.
What would be interesting to know, is at what point in all this does a person begin to really take on a perspective in life from their soul's or
higher self's point of view? That would be a very big indicator wherever it falls. Because that is not an easy thing to truly do if it doesn't
come naturally to you.
