More thoughts on lives between lives

candle What does happen to us between lives? The diagram  about the life cycle of death and rebirth, that I posted last time ( Evidence of what happens between lives? ) seemed to be met with general agreement by most of my readers that commented. Of course there are many different views, across many cultures and faiths. The truth is that we cannot be absolutely sure until we ourselves get there.

David Russell (projectglobalbrain.com) put a slightly different perspective on the subject. As I understand him, he sees part of our consciousness going on after death, but not necessarily all of us. Although we cannot really know, we probably re join the greater consciousness before being reincarnated.

He said “Each of us is like a candle lit from a larger flame. We burn until the wick is exhausted and then we go out. The larger flame, however, goes on forever. Our rebirth happens as another candle is lit from that larger flame. Essentially it is all the same flame.”

Aspects of reality

The enduring puzzle of life continuing after physical death, shows us that our physical reality is only part of the story.
