Seriously. I hear ya'. But like I said in the previous post ... from what i'm reading it looks like souls get to the other side and that, for most souls, the only way to advance is to come back and learn other lessons so they can move on in the spirit world. personally, I want no part of coming back .. EVER. But supposedly once I get to the other side I'll see what I'm lacking and how I need 'yet another lifetime' to work through whatever short comings I have.
I really hope that's not the case. But the reading indicates that it could be. YUK.
I've always had this weird feeling that my 12-year-old daughter is the reincarnation of my grandfather, who died about 33 years ago. Don't ask me why I think that - it's just a feeling. If true, it may be that he was not only coming back for his own soul development, but also to help me with mine. Could it be that there are souls who are connected somehow, and come back time and time again, experiencing new forms of relationships? Who knows...

Among all the other incorrect assumptions listed, we do not assimilate back into God. He is a separate individual from us now, and since He never changes, He will eternally remain a separate individual.
God created us to interact with Him as an eternal habitation of consciousness, He did not create us as an experiment to be sucked back up into Himself.
If God is infinite, then we cannot be separate from God, because separation implies many-ness. That which is infinite cannot, by definition, be many. To have infinity you must identify or define that infinity as unity; otherwise, the term does not have any referent or meaning. In an Infinite Creator there is only unity. We are One with "God". We are All That Is. I am.
