-Are you a God?
- they asked the Buddha.
- No.
- Are you an angel, then?
- No.
- A saint?
- No.
- Then what are you?

Om Mani Padme Hum

Matthew 25:40

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 7 1-6

1. Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

A thought about reincarnation

Something that's been bugging me lately is that the popular concept of reincarnation is linear. Life after life, starting long ago and moving closer to the present life each time. Bridey Murphy as an example. Why does it have to be liear though? It's pretty much a given that we are vehicles for immortal souls that come to this plane, or level, or reality, to learn or experience in a body made of mud that which it can't on it's own level or reality.
So, if that's true, then let's take it a step further, assuming that that immortal soul instead of inhabiting a single body, life after life, past to future, instead actually inhabits no body at all, but controls, possibly through the silver cord linking the earthly body to the astral, many bodies in many eras, epochs even, worlds even. Hundreds, or thousands, or millions, or billions, or trillions, of lives lived, experienced, learned from. Which could mean that each of the billions of persons on the Earth could belong to a single soul. Not billions of souls as is popularly believed, but just one soul controlling billions of beings and learning, and experiencing a billion things at once.
