    Gordon, I believe that after we die physically we do not forgot our lives, loves and experiences. That even as we go back to energy form, we retain a good deal of our personality. That past lives feel like distant memories after physical death and that we don’t forget the people we experienced this life with. I know we are “passing the knowledge we learned” up through the ranks to higher/self then ultimately Source. But I do think that we retain individuality and certain personality traits. There are countless stories where people, especially children, remember past lives and see their own habits, traits and sometimes the way they look in past lives.

    Tom Campbell believes that we remember nothing after physical death. He says it’s like a dream that quickly fades and is quickly forgotten. To me this sounds cold and why would anyone want to continue living lifetimes when sometimes living these lives isn’t always easy? I know living lifetimes is about growth and learning but if one can’t even remember their last life then what have they learned? I absolutely disagree with Campbell on this.

    How do you feel about this, Gordon?

      I resonate with your points here Vickie. Campbells notion of forgeting the past incarnation quickly completely goes against decades of spirit communications, not to mention my own experiences out there. His work, that I am aware of, sounds like the theiories of a researcher rather than one who knows from personal experience and I can think of at least three other authors who suffer from the same disadvantage.
      Whiie we, as discarnates, carry on with our incarnation, the second half really, interacting with those we knew from our last life and others who chose not to incarnate in the same time frame, and enjoying our spirit ‘vacation’ to the max, we are headed to a merge with Higher Self, where all will be shared before a ‘return’ to physical life, another character in the ongoing theatre show. And at all times, I do believe, we retain a sense of individuality and how we are contributing to the ‘whole’ That dual sense can also be touched on in meditation ‘here’.

        I agree and I’m glad you have the same views as I do from sheer experience. There is much more to these lives or why would we keep doing them over and over? And, I know absolutely from experience that we retain a lot of our personality always. Good to hear your view on that.

          When focusing on Higher Self and our soul’s relationship to “it”, I can see how easy it is to neglect the significance of our journey in spirit after we pass, not to mention the sheer joy and fun of it all.
