I came across an interesting Vedic notation I thought was worth sharing. I have often thought of past life experiences and the emotional, traumatic and deeply held feelings of them to be akin to peeling back the layers of an onion. I have had several experiences in meditation and in the dream state as a small child, where my life seems to flash before my eyes...as if everything is being presented in a split second. According to Swami's, people who report dying of a sudden and unexpected death - will experience this life time flash. Deepak Chopra states: He goes on to suggest an exercise that I find fascinating. He says he does it every night before falling asleep. He reviews the events of the day in backward order, for the same reason karma unspools in this way. He says he finds peace and understanding for the events of the day. So now I am wondering - IF we take the time - to meditate/reflect in backward order the events of our lives, day by day; could this kind of exercise be a stepping stone to a peaceful passage to the next life and a way of healing and embracing our own misgivings? A fascinating notation non-the-less. Karma he says - also never ends.
