Be careful of what you choose...that goes to you too Mr Soul!

Meet Anthony

I was reading Anthony Kiedis book 'Scar tissue' a few weeks ago.

Towards the start (cant find the reference) of his book he stated that, when you are born, your soul chooses your parents, because they will be the best people to teach you what you need to know.

Interesting, most people would be scratching their heads, thinking, 'Why would i do that?'

Now, lets continue, from what i know about the Dali Lama, he choose his reincarnation, the previous Dali Lama left clues as to where he would be reincarnated and as to how he could be found.

The Dali Lama

The Dali Lama has decided he will not be reincarnated in accordance with tradition, due to the Chinese who would rather he would disappear altogether
By the Himalayan tradition, phowa (Tibetan) is the discipline that transfers the mind stream to the intended body. Upon the death of the Dalai Lama and consultation with the Nechung Oracle, a search for the Lama's reincarnation, or yangsi (yang srid), is conducted. Traditionally it has been the responsibility of the High Lamas of the Gelugpa Tradition and the Tibetan government to find his reincarnation. The process can take around two or three years to identify the Dalai Lama, and for the 14th, Tenzin Gyatso it was four years before he was found. The search for the Dalai Lama has usually been limited historically to Tibet, although the third tulku was born in Mongolia. Tenzin Gyatso, though, has stated that he will not be reborn in the People's Republic of China.[28] In his autobiography, Freedom In Exile, he states that if Tibet is not free, he will reincarnate elsewhere.
And, that got me thinking, i wonder would this little bit of information help you re frame your entire life and put things in context? It certainly has me thinking.

What Anthony Keidis says sounds a bit far fetched, but the Dali Lama did this and can remember his past lives, so maybe this isn't as crazy as you'd think, there is something to it if the Dali Lama is saying this and he's way smarter than me!

Especially if you have had any experience with the spirit world, i have had a bit, i've seen enough to know, so i know enough to not laugh at this idea.

Soul, the other kind

So, the scenario for me would look like, Mr soul man, soon to be the person we know (and some love as Kieran) is floating around over Cork and says, the best people to teach me all the things i need to know in life are those 2 people, my mother and father, tea totaller's, never drank, smoke or partied, drugs? You get a perscription from the doctor for that, and not a Doctor called Dr Dre!

Dr Dre

Wouldn't have a clue who the 'Rolling stones' are.

I think i've done enough partying so far, for everyone in my family, to make up for this inconsistency?
Funnily enough, the black and white dragon (previous post), after getting the tattoo, i learnt that a black and white dragon symbolises that, 'Your parents are very wise', maybe the light is shining in after all Mr Leonard Cohen, it only took about 35 years? Better late than never i suppose?
