i meant, what knowledge gets imprinted on the soul. Say if in previous life i thought zeus is god then in this life will my soul knowledge
inspire me about zeus?
Or the soul after leaving contemplates like "hmm.. Zeus dint work, maybe i'l find in next try" and then i am born with that soul.
In former assumption the soul is doomed. In the latter soul finds a way each time that doesnt work and tries again.
Hope this helped.
Okay, let me see if I got it straight....
First round thought Zeus was god.
Second round - will he remember the particular story and realize it no longer fits?
Wow, great question!! That's an interesting concept. Doesn't fit into my thinking, though, YET
. I don't think of carried-over soul knowledge the
way I think of recalling earlier "erroneous ideas". However......
think - here's an example - some people are born with talents and interests that they have developed over lifetimes. A gifted pianist,
say, a little child like Mozart who at age 7 wrote his first symphony. Or a kid who's a prodigy at medicine or has a "natural" ability at sport that
is difficult. It happens all the time. Could be that a natural musician, say a person with "perfect pitch" has honed their "musical" skills and that
is the way they think and respond. Babies each have different interests. One likes to move and dance, another gets overstimulated by noise and light
that doesn't bother others, a third likes to touch and run her fingertips over surfaces. Musical, Vision Sensitive, Kinetic.
I believe each soul (I'm thinking this through as I type) likewise has ways of learning that carry over. Thus we each have different talents,
strengths, weaknesses, etc. Those probably stay true through each lifetime. But one life it's piano, next it's violin. Or one life sculpture, next
So, the accumulated skill carries over (in my scenario), yes. Would this apply to the subject of gods names? I don't think so, but I can see how
it's a possibility. I don't know.
.... I don't think it's a conscious "okay I was learning to play Beethoven but I kept missing that note, so
I'm going to work on it again".....not that specific of a skill-building practice thing. But I think more that the soul who was (like us!
intensely INTERESTED in the topic of god and the spiritual in general
, would come back with an inborn curiosity or passion or talent for it.
I think the "mistakes" we work through are way more esoteric and overarching than a simple "detailed know-how".
