Past lives and the typical view of them are shaped by a linear view of the cycle of death and rebirth. When we look through the lens beyond the confines of time, in its linear sense, we can glimpse entirely different angles and views. What we then may see as lifetimes are all occurring Now from the infinite source connected through consciousness itself with no bounds; consciousness itself playing out in its many forms which reveal a particular combination of patterns arranged… momentarily. Mind gives more permanence than the fleeting duration of each appearing form. The unique signature of each form collects and emits information which churns in the grand pool of consciousness. Now, in an instant a particular moment expressed in form along the continuum can be accessed or known by any other form: consciousness knowing itself, as its very etymology infers. Timelines, simultaneously occur as multiverses upon multiverses spiral and entwine, and inform one another. Just as we can stand before a tree, vibrate at that particular frequency and experience/know what it is like to be that tree so can we tap into any other form of consciousness. We, as Consciousness, are truly formless. Identifying as the body and within the constructs of limitations therein has beings only thinking otherwise, as the fluidity of our nature gets overshadowed and forgotten. Believing thoughts as true and real, the detriment of many. We traverse the threads of consciousness which inform in all directions infinitely. The way that lifetimes meet beyond linear past, present, and future lives could possibly be likened unto patterns in Nature. They are circles which overlap with other circles and all are connected, ultimately, as the seed of life..
When we take an example and look at lives over centuries then peer into the significance of the connection of these lives as becomes apparent at some point along the continuum, we can see consciousness observing itself and informing timelines Now. The point in time and space with relevance known as past or future has no bearing, as forms are informed from all directions as consciousness itself. Perhaps the common mission of these beings, though living in different eras, is on the same trajectory and so all are actually working in tandem Now. We can also view the mission of these beings in a cycle that is greater than the span of each of their lifetimes. How do we pinpoint where a mission began? All influencing and all informing, the cycle itself in motion by greater forces. We are but a fraction of a participating portion of the whole. A tiny thread in the tapestry of that which is being woven. When all circles and seeds of life overlapping one another are shown over time they appear to be another pattern altogether when we look again: prolifically blossoming in the rhythmic flow of creation.
Imagine ‘zooming out’ and viewing cycles and patterns which show how forms of Consciousness are connected along the continuum Now. Might the points of intersection intrigue us more than what matter the circles contain? Might the patterns of the whole intrigue us more than points of intersection? All fluid and in motion, of course, we map these fleeting intersections as we may draw constellations in a vast sky. We, who by another gazer are merely stars which have long burned out.
