In Very Simple Words [May. 9th, 2019|10:01 am]
Tony Grist
If reincarnation is a fact- as I believe it is- and time an illusion- as the scientists now maintain- it follows that all our many lives are happening at once- and our soul is both many selves and one Self.

I think the Buddha tree in my dream of a few nights ago is an image of this.

I think you might enjoy this book by Reginald Farrer, "In Old Ceylon," which he wrote after being confirmed in Theravada Buddhism. It's a combination travelogue, history lesson, and exigesis. A battered used copy might leap into your hands in a bookshop someday, or you could download the pdf:

I'll keep my eyes open. I like old books so I'll be looking for a copy to jump off a shelf sometime.

It's been a long journey. There was a time- not so long ago- when I'd have found these ideas terrifying/incomprehensible.
