Learning Together

     This week marks the 65th anniversary of the reign of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama who was born in 1935. His Holiness is a rare example of a person who is the acknowledged reincarnation of an identified individual.

Finding the Dalai Lama

    In 1935, the monks searching for the newest incarnation of the Dalai Lama were led, through synchronistic signs and oracles, to a particular province; then to a specific monastery there; and finally to a small family home. The leader of the group, a monk from a community called Sera, disguised himself as a servant, and spent time playing with the youngest child in the house: a three year old boy who recognized him and called him “Sera lama, Sera lama”.

    A formal deputation arrived at the house a few days later, carrying a number of items which had been possessions of the Thirteenth Dalai Lama, and similar items which had not. The infant correctly chose every one, saying “It's mine. It's mine”. He was recognized as the reincarnation of Thubten Gyatso, the 13th Dalai Lama, who was also the reincarnation of the previous twelve, including the first Dalai Lama, Gedun Drupa, who was born in 1391.


    While few individuals occupy places in life as well-known as that of the Dalai Lama, every human is present in the world on a mission of Soul Evolution. Our souls have been here before. According to Madisyn Taylor we often reincarnate on earth with our Soul Family, and it is with them that we have our most intense relationships.

    Taylor writes “You meet someone for the first time and feel as if you know them already. You’re in a town that you’ve never been to before, yet you recognize streets and buildings. You start playing a new sport and amaze everyone, including yourself, at your natural abilities and intuitive knowing of the rules. We often describe such experiences as déjà vu: the experience or feeling that a new situation has happened to us before. Then again, the possibility does exist that we have actually lived these experiences in the past or, rather, in another lifetime.”

Global belief

     Many spiritual traditions embrace the idea that after the death of one biological body, a soul can migrate and begin a new life in a new body. Followers of Kabbalah; the Cathars; the Druze and the Rosicrucians all held or hold this belief, as did the Gnostics of the Roman era, and contemporary Indian religions.

Soul Communities.

    Many systems suggest that when we reincarnate we are part of a group. We move through our different lives with the company and support of many familiar souls. These are the people who teach us through relationships: with their help, our unresolved issues are addressed and healed. We have all seen children who have astonishing musical or other talents. They may have worked hard in another life to develop that skill, now they have arrived in a family that is prepared to accommodate and expand on that work.

How This Helps

    Remembering or reconnecting with our other lives can provide valuable insights into our attitudes and inclinations. Fears and phobias can be eliminated when we understand their origins. Relationships can be deepened, or may be rejected, when we recognize the lessons and hold-overs that they contain. Career and training decisions made with full information are more likely to contribute to personal progress. Study of parallel lives, through any of many methods, can lead towards enlightenment. Most importantly, it is in this life that we can influence our Soul Growth through conscious decisions. Make the most of life today!
