Ya, me too, I feel like I have a life path set for me but it's up to me about how much of it I accomplish...or something like that.

Time is not linear so everything that is going to happen has already happened :headscratch:

My question: Am I being rewarded in this life for something that happened in another? Why was I born in Van, Canada and not some place like the middle east? I think that if I was born in Afganistan or Iraq I would probley be fighting with the terrorists against America and everyone else. I consider myself to be a moral, inteligent and peacefull person but who am I anyway? If I was raised in a place like the middle east I could turn out to be the complete opposite of what I am now.

keep going... eventually you will realize that the answer is what you choose it to be. The only thing that is consistent with all forms of life is that we are having an experience whether as a battery, a trapped soul, or an animal gaining self awareness, it is choice and few ever realize that because in order for what ever it is that you choose to become permanent or real, and heres the kicker that turns people off, you have to keep at that choice you've choosen for it to become real, purpose therefore arises and you then understand the why. who you are then is what you are becoming and hence is impossible to explain but only experienced...

any whoo take care

Just one more thought and I'll get offline. I once thought I couldn't and I didn't. But once I realized I could, I did.

I've fed the children of Bangadash with bloated bellies and I cried when I realized that I could do very little to make the world better. But, child abuse and hunger and many bad things will always be here. You can't stop overall child abuse or hunger or anything like it by educating the public. You can't feed everyone but there is one thing you can do and that's to hold these children and love them. Give them hope where there is none. Feed them if you can, take them in if they have nowhere to go. There is no law that can be written that will stop the atrosities perpretrated on mankind by mankind. Believe me when I say that you should turn your hurt into love and do what you can to show it to them. Don't turn the switch off, as you wrote, just let the light guide your way



I feel you, yes i get you, Its just that i dont agree that former life brings your reality to be.

I do turn negative to positive that is my role here, just need to turn off now and again, which is hard due to things im involved in.

I have moments of downtime, especially when i read things here saying like im well hooked up life is good, karma from another life.No you are lucky enjoy your life! and be very grateful for a easy life. :hugging: .

Karma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Origins|Views|In the Indian religions|Western interpretation
Karma ; Pali: kamma) in Indian religions is the concept of "action" or "deed", understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect originating in ancient India and treated in Hindu, Jain, Buddhist and Sikh...

I once again offer the idea that to change your karma is to change your mental attitude. happiness in Life is your mental attitude.

Some say we choose our lives but then one would ask why we should choose such a hellish enviroment to live in? So we can know good spiritual morals the hard way? I think it's a spiritual conspiracy that none of us humans on Earth know anything about ourselves or the nature of reality! Karma may or may not excist that's part of the question I'm trying to solve!
