Hi. My name is Kim, and I have a story to tell.

    Yes, I suppose that you have a point I need to consider. Quite often I allow my emotions to override my better judgment.

    Thank-you for setting me straight. It was quite a few years ago when I did some investigating into why I kept having real intense bouts of deja vu after an NDE I had in 1983, but I learned that a more appropriate word for those moments would be precognitive experiences. One source I came across was Greater Reality. I wrote a question and Dr. Craig Hogan would answer. I saw your book, The Fun of Dying, when I was writing to Dr. Hogan and I ordered it. I really like it and it brings me comfort. I have these ongoing moments in my life in which I recall viewing previously or living again. It has been continuing for 34 years. I try to live according to invisible Spirit, or intuition, before living by what I see, and my life seems to be unfolding before me. What do those glasses mean on my thread?

    Yes, my thread isn't far from the beginning of the Introduction and Helpful Information section, and there is a pair of glasses posted on the one I started about having an NDE-saw future life events. There is one thread before mine that has a push tack and four others before mine have a push tack and a lock. I am the only one with a pair of glasses and I just wondered what all of those symbols meant.

    It means you're already contributing to the thread or are watching it. The push pin means it's pinned in that place in the forum's thread listing and the padlock indicates the thread has been locked - no further contributions will be allowed.

    My pleasure - it may not be obvious what icons mean if a tablet or phone is used to view these threads. I rarely access them that way as a computer-size screen and a proper keyboard are much easier for my old eyes and fingers. :)

    Will you please explain better, especially the last sentence. Was I being too defensive of my stance?

    No you weren't being too defensive but there wasn't any need to defend it anyway. Now you've asked I'll try to explain what I have been getting at.

    Firstly your near brush-with-death left you with an awareness most of us don't have - I did originally write 'enjoy' but I'm not confident it's something we would actually enjoy anyway. But it also appears to be constraining your interactions with this world. Your overpowering desire (as I'm perceiving it) to live a life that may be different from what you'd planned may also be limiting the 'value' you should be drawing from life incarnate.

    I totally acknowledge, however, that this situation might be exactly what you chose for your so-called life plan and if that's the case then you don't need to be here and debating/discussing it because all is known to you. If so then I'll stand back and not comment further. If you're happy with how things are working out for you then there's nothing more to say.

    In the general scheme of things, however, if humans were aware why they're here and all that goes with that understanding, it's arguable that this world might be different to a degree that significantly reduced its value for enhancing spiritual progress. Else why would it be the way it actually is?

    More ideas to consider?

    I think this life is right up my alley, because I have always been a non-conformist. I'm not radical or anything, but I have always been very different; before and after the accident. So thanks Mac, you have helped me see something. Will you explain that last paragraph a little bit please? Do you mean that if the world didn't have all these different ideas available our spiritual growth could be hampered?
