Well, I came across this cute little gadget on http://www.thebigview.com/contents.html
a site much like http://www.spaceandmotion.com/ which tries to summarize,
succinctly, various view points and perspectives, on what life is and how to live it
(the attitudes, as well as cultural and scientific discoveries which we have made over the course of history, compiled for your convenience).
so anyway, the actual calculation runs based on the birthday one has, and seems to be, at least for my somewhat naive self...
(I admit, I'm a sucker for meditation, yoga, and all kinds of divination, i genuinely believe the body is a temple and a portal to
higher, lower, and different worlds, and that by following ones individual path, regardless of which tools one uses, one can and will eventually see and work with the truth,
let me put it like this: where do your ideas for pictures come from? at one point in history, would they not have burned you or called you a sorceror/magician etc?
in fact, do some not still look at you like that?)
...somewhat accurate, others have also reported it gives them goosebumps and some vague tingling feeling...
What do you think, or more importantly, feel?
judge for yourself!
Here's my summary
http://www.thebigview.com/pastlife/Your past life diagnosis:
I don't know how you feel about it, but you were male in your last earthly incarnation.
You were born somewhere in the territory of modern Tibet around the year 1825.
Your profession was that of a seaman, dealer, businessman or broker.
Your brief psychological profile in your past life:
Bohemian personality, mysterious, highly gifted, capable to understand ancient books.
With a magician's abilities, you could have been a servant of dark forces.
The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
The timid, lonely and self-confident people are everywhere,
and your task is to overcome these tendencies in yourself and then to help other people.
Do you remember now?
not really, but i can see how it might be true, given that i find myself, here, again, with those strengths, weaknesses, and interests.
maybe we are like this dog, watching the sun set, only, it is not setting on the earth,
but on our life, and just as the last beams of light meet our fading eyes, our spirit soars and spirals and then is immersed again in the heart of the universe,
to be projected out once more into a body, to do what it came here to do, and learn what it came here to learn?
I'm reminded of what Leonardo said about Sleep, Life and Death, he said that:
Just as a Day spent well brings happy sleep, so too does a life spent well bring a happy death.
