Topic: I have an overwhelming feeling that I am K reincarnated.

I was born 9 months after K's death. I am the eigth child. My name begins with K and many simply call me KK. I was raised in religion, studied and practiced Catholism, was very devout until I realized that religion is far from truth and all religions come down to laws and traditions. I am a philosopher and always have been. From very young I questioned life and people and the whys and hows of our existence, our purpose, our dysfunction, and our potential. I just learned of K three days ago and have realized that though I have read a minimum of his work what I have read has been deja vu of what I have discovered to be the truth on my own. I believe that Nitya has come back too and is in my life as my soulmate Nate (both begin with N as well) because the relationship that K and Nitya had "like two stars in a naked sky" is an exact description of our relationaship. I am even more convinced because mine and Nate's paths have crossed our entire lives, but we just met each oher last year. It is as if Nitya and K were looking for each other. I have spoken K's exact words, his teachings, my entire life without ever reading his teachings. For the critics who believed that he could only speak these philosophies because he was well taken care of and lived rather luxuriously if I am him then I would like to say that the truth has followed me even in the depths of poverty. I think he came back for many reasons one maybe to prove that the materialistic and egotistic necessities and wants and desires of this world have no impact on the truth. Truth is truth regardless of circumstance or situation it can never be anything other than truth. I also think he wanted more time with his brother or maybe because both have returned they, we were instinctively drawn to each other. And one more reason he could have returned came to me last night while I was reading his words and he said if he could not teach anymore than he had no purpose. Maybe he has found another way to teach. I know that I go on and on whenever I find an interested ear. Me and Nate are going to visit Ojai since we have never been in this lifetime and see if we have deja vu.

The spirit is continuous but form can change. It is impossible to confirm or deny the possibility, if your response is for or against and is set in stone then you have beliefs that interfere with the truth. I do not think that he would come back to prove anything for himself or for his reputation, but to prove that uncovering the truth is possible for everyone and is not related to the material visible world. That was simply an idea and I value your response. I did read his philosophy on reincarnation and yes it is egotistical for humans to want to be reincarnated as a way to live eternally on this plane, but I am not lead to believe his reason was to live forever, but as a service to the world.

Continuity means it cannot return because it never left. Whether I believe and whether you do not the truth is the truth. So if it is so then it is and if it is not then it is not. My reason for the post is this I have questioned that if I were to come back in future lives would the future me understand the present me or would I be completely oblivious to my present life. It does not matter either way but I am curious as to what K would have wanted if he indeed came back by choice or by nature. Is it to experience a different path or to continue his work? Are these philosophies I have imbedded in me for a future purpose or just from memory? If we were to die and it was a choice to come back would we choose to in order to proceed from where we left off or to experience what we hadn't? If you had an idea of a past life what would you personally do? Continue its work and grow your future from its seed or move in a different direction entirely?

Maybe hitler came back as george bush? Oh that was bad....

Thank you for your replies reincarnation is what it is either it exists or not but it does not depend on our knowledge of it in order to be or not to. It is impossible for me to know what to do with this idea of mine, but I appreciate your time.

People are quick to follow the words and teachings of others because we are conditioned not to think for ourselves. We take the path of least responsibility. We allow others to dictate our lives because then we are not at fault for our mistakes. Religious people blame satan, conscious people blame illusion, and those who choose to follow instead of find out for themselves blame K and are positive that he is right and need not research any further.

I used "blame" for the sake of the sentence, but you are right. They copy him instead of figuring it out on their own. The truth is imbedded in us, but we are directed, conditioned, to ignore it. We are mentally and spiritually passive due to conditioning. People are extremely powerful, but almost none of them see their true worth and it is much easier to look up to a god or a prophet or a teacher than it is to recognize our own value.

Topic: Does one know why they are participating in this forum?

It seems by most of the replies not on this particular topic but by most of what I have read so far on this site that the reason people are posting is not for actual intellectual or spiritual discussion, but instead for ego alone. Nearly every post I read is trying to one up the previous post. That showing off is the egos way of comparing and comparison is the egos way of figuring out and defining who it is. K said as many others, Lao Tzo, Ekhart Tolle(whose book did not offer any new insight but has made the ideas more readily available thanks to oprah) the word tree is not the tree. Or as in "A new Earth" the finger that points to the moon is not the moon. but it seems an awful lot of this sites participants believe that K's words are the truth whereas they are confusing the pointing finger with the truth. Being on the internet at all no matter how nobel the reason is choosing a false reality for reality. However since we are all in this false reality together I should answer the question and so...I am on here to speak with people of the same interest. But that too is ego since the idea of being a part of community is also an attempt of the ego to define itself.

You know what is ironic is whether you are oblivious to the truth or you understand it completly we will remain in the illusion. It doesn't matter if you follow K's words to a T or if you worship the "gods" or have no interest in the matter of what is real and what isn't, there is no escape.

Topic: I have an overwhelming feeling that I am K reincarnated.

I broke my arm and had surgery it is my dominant wrist so my replies will be quite short for a couple of months but i wanted to say that the thought of being reincarnated is not an appealing one to me and so if this is fact i would want to know for what reason k would return so if i am him then i could try and finish his purpose and not come back again. It is impossible for you or i to know if it is so r not i am planning a trip to ojai maybe this summer to see if i have deja vu and that would be enough proof for me.

Topic: Dear Krishnaji, no how and no where,we can't do it? Why?

Eve- putting aside the line that you may be wrong that was a very touching last post. Perfection in its simplicity and honesty.

Topic: Dear Krishnaji, no how and no where,we can't do it? Why?

You can message me if you would like to discuss it or we can on this forum, it is up to you. My reply had nothing to do with whether I am or not. I am just as sure that I am as you are that I am not. i did not think it up, it came from a deep feeling inside. i never thought of reincarnation until i was deeply moved by a 'psychic' vision. i am sorry to have offended you by this, i am truly sorry to have offended anyone but what is offensive other than an idea that goes against our 'beliefs'? it was not intended to upset anyone. when i have strong spiritual instincts i follow them because they are much more reality than what we physically experience and i have learned that to ignore it is to deny truth. spiritual psychic instinct/vision is a much better indicator of fact than thought. and with that: it is fact and will be regardless of belief.

Topic: Does one know why they are participating in this forum?

I have typed immediate reactions to certain posts. I have received immediate reactions from other posts. I sat on my hands for others to see where it would lead to. I have read and reread entire topics and their posts. I have done both here: active listening all prejudgements aside and immediate response to see where my ego goes. All of this has led me to understand something different about my own ego. So although it is still fact that internet is false reality, it turns out i am using the forum to observe my own ego which very well may be a lot easier to do online since my ego is here in black and white. Turns out to be rather helpful in this regard.

Topic: Effects of K teachings

Sorry for intruding :) Eve have you read Elkhart Tolle's A New Earth? It explains how any doing is doing not being whether spontaneous/inspired or planned. Doing=effort. I can see both views, the book might help to explain the other view unless you too see both of course.

He he nick i am not sure but i think that people take you too seriously. I figured since eve knew k she would have heard doing=effort why then would i qoute k if she did not find it there. You have to take your audience in consideration when speaking dont we?

Topic: I have an overwhelming feeling that I am K regurgitated

Sorry Amber if this upsets you or if I am misunderstanding your meaning, but your words towards Nick in this topic (as well as mine) gives the appearence that you are quite defensive and aggressive. It seems that you are an intellectual and understand K's teachings at that level alone. In your questioning of Nick's words you pointed out that he should look in the mirror for his acqusations against you were really about himself, but you appear to be doing the very thing you speak of. Words are truly meaningless and mine truly mean no harm and I understand that we only get a small peek at the whole picture when communicating online, but I am honestly curious if the teachings (or better what the teachings point to) you are so quick to defend have taken root inside of you beyond intellect alone?

Topic: Was K a Sexist?

It is hard to see any objectivity and have real dialogue when this thread is so full of 'personal' attacks. Not only comparing men and women, but Tolle and K...Comparison is division itself...And being so defensive of another's character comes from the same 'self' that defends 'self'. Dangerous roads being laid out here.
