oh I hope you are correct. From what I am reading though ... people get 'to the other side' and see that they still have lessons to learn and so
they want to come back and reincarnate, so they can learn those lessons and evolve spiritually. I can't imagine that .... but that's what I've
been reading ....
Those "lessons", or experiences, are what they wanted to experience before they incarnated. Certainly if you find out all of a sudden what you had
PLANNED to do but forgot, and if it still interests you, of course youll feel the desire to return.
But of NDEs... how many have them, and decide: "Nah, # it. Im done here. The past is the past, and Im ready for something new"? For all we know...
it could actually be the vast majority of NDErs who choose that path, and we would never know.
Also, "evolution" implies an objective directionality. Do not worry over if you going the "right" way or not, there is no up or down with
infinity, thus no floor nor ceiling. You are where you are, but dont worry about getting to a final destination, because there are no ends in
eternity; no final destinations, no absolute permanence, save for the constant that it is your primordial nature to exist, and you cannot not exist.
In fact, there isnt even such a thing as nonexistence, or if there is, you and I could never possibly know. Indeed, if something did not exist... how
could one even form the concept that it might have?
"I am" is who you really are. The implication of "I am" without placing a noun afterwards means definition does not apply; it means you are
unlimited and without boundaries. That is your natural state of being; not a thing, or an object, or something tangible you can touch. You are no
thing, but you still exist. You still witness. You still observe, and experience, and change the motion of reality with your will.
In fact you are the very essence of existence itself. Beyond time, beyond space; beyond all mortal conceptualization, you are there... no where and
everywhere; no thing, and all things.
What you are at your core is eternal and unchanging. If you want to experience "evolving" the shells around that core, feel free to. But you do not
HAVE to. That idea, that you MUST evolve or X and Y but not Z or Q will happen comes from the paradigm that you have little to no control over your
being, and external forces are guiding you while you are powerless to overcome, ex: some nebulous, absent god is "testing" people to see which ones,
inevitably "he", will want to keep, and which ones he will want to throw away.
The whole idea of evolving spiritually is about delving into this fractal-esque branch of reality that we are in, all the way to its terminus... but
with the understanding that there are no ends to reality, and thus no final destination to actually arrive at at all... all points are in fact equal
to one another, since there is no place to actually "end up".
"Evolution" is, objectively, meaningless.
I suggest just doing what brings you the most joy; the most real joy that you can feel in your soul. You might call that love... real love, not the
watered down modern version of "love", which has lost its true meaning. Whatever that path may be that you have chosen to walk down, when you feel
that passion ignited, youll know you are on that path you chose.
Everything off that path is ancillary.
