The current Dalai Lama is supposedly a reincarnation of his predecessor, another Dalai Lama. If you believe these things, and this particular story, the line of Dalai Lamas has been an unbroken line of reincarnated religious leaders from the sixteenth century on. Now I for one have never believed in this kind of thing. Even when people would tell me of their hypnosis-induced past life experiences I was sceptical. Of course, that was because for the most part those people were looking to past lives for reasons why their current life was this bad.
But what if it’s true? What if those nearly six billion people on this earth aren’t new individuals, but old souls in a new vessel? I’ve seen it in kids, I’m pretty certain of that. Every now and then you’ll see one, totally unimpressed and relaxed about life, and saying things that most adults fail to grasp. I’m sure you’ve had this experience, too.
Could these children perhaps be reincarnated? Leaders of the past or maybe, on the same note, the victims of the past? The muses, the dreamers, the moneylenders and the soldiers? I look at my daughter and marvel at the possibilities.
