Who am I - Who was I ?
Being at an age of elderly discretion (the sunny side of 79) I have spent the last 30 years exploring what I had always understood as my beliefs. I have discovered that most of my 'beliefs' were not self generated but had been taken on from other people, secondhand so to speak. It therefore seemed to me that it was up to ME to explore the world of why? where? who? etc. In doing this I discovered that I could change my mind (ie my belief patterns) any time I wanted and that when I did so I tended to go 'forward' rather than back. I suppose the most powerful revelation (realisation, to be more accurate) has been the fact that I have lived a number of lives before this, my present one. Every time I test and experiment with this understanding I get firmer evidence. Evidence that would not be accepted by Prof Dawkins, I daresay, but then his evidence is trawled up using only five rather primitive senses - called collectively 'Science'. At the same time I have to admit that his logic has helped me once or twice with my mind changes ! Does all this make sense to anyone out there?
