Video: Is young boy reincarnation of WWII fighter pilot?


Right click for new tab.  There might be a short commercial.


Or use this link news.yahoo.com/ and look for  the video.


This is an interesting tale of a two year old being able to give details of another life where his plane was shot down during WWII.  It is amazing that both the 2 year old and the pilot are named James.

I find these kinds of stories intriguing, but frustrating.  I have questions which are never adequately addressed.  Such as:  What TV was the boy watching?  It is well known that young kids have an almost photographic memory for fast images such as TV, and will absorb an incredible amount of detail.  A war documentary or film or both, coupled with his fascination for planes, and a vivid imagination, could well add up to this impression of a previous life.  Or so it seems to me.

Those who do not remember their past lives, as well as those who do not want to do such, frequently deny the experiences of those who do remember.  They do not want to feel "left out".


My view: we are all interconnected, have lived countless lives and are aware of the lives of countless others.  We cannot sort it all out, so give up and "deny".  Yet, given the proper attention span, we can all remember our own choosing to live the current life; and, that is enough to free us in this life.

Not necessarily, JD.... it's a lack of verifiable proof.  With all the charlatans (whether these charlatans are selling "noni juice", herbal supplements that promise to cure all, channelers that promise to speak to our loved ones who've passed, or television evangelists and/or politicians who sell fear to fill their coffers ), healthy skepticism rather than gullibility are more desirable.


How many of us have heard the tale of someone who claimed to have once been a beautiful, wealthy,  Egyptian princess? They're never Egyptian slaves..... or poor, ugly nameless Egyptians.... they're always rich, famous, gorgeous.... how many "past life experiences" are merely a projection of what we wish for in THIS life.

I firmly agree we're all interconnected. We're all children of the stars.... the material of stardust seeded our universe.... At a point so far back in the past we can't even IMAGINE this eternity, we were..... all...... ONE...... once.


I agree with the last.... We choose to live our current life..... which CAN be enormously freeing in this life, if we allow it to be....


The struggle for this freedom.... some may call it perfection... others will call it god(dess), or  the divine..... is something all human beings experience, regardless of our religion, lack of religion, our gender, our culture. In this endeavor... perhaps we can remember our inter-connectedness even as we embrace the unique.


 

Tribalism, ethnocentricism, racism, nationalism, and FEAR is the Mind Killer... >:(

A.spirit,


Yeah, material proof for a spiritual event, sure!  Apples and oranges.


Glad we agree on the basics, as that is the important part.

JD, why do you think non-theists and theists or similar theists with different interpretations have been arguing with each other for so long? Laughing


If everyone could get off their high horse and realize there's more than one path up the mountain... there may be a different mountain... hell, there may  not....even.....be.....a....mountain at all! And focus on the big picture.... Big Blue would be a less FRACTIOUS place to be.... :)

Not necessarily, AS....there is an abundance of absolute verifiable proof.  However, this proof will never stand up in a court of law.  I speak of spiritual proof.  Reams of it.


Healthy skepticism is always good...until it prevents one from acknowledging what is real and genuine.  Professionals such as Sylvia Browne and James Von Prague, just to name a few, are anything but charlatans.

They're never Egyptian slaves..... or poor, ugly nameless Egyptians.... they're always rich, famous, gorgeous.... how many "past life experiences" are merely a projection of what we wish for in THIS life.


And how many of us have heard and read about the stories of those whose past lives have been nothing short of mundane?  There are thousands of these now on the books.

The interesting thing.......I should say, one of the interesting things about this situation, is that Bruce Leininger, the husband/father of James, was at first an absolute skeptic.  He thought the notion of past life recall was absurd.  That is, until he started doing the research that lead to their book venture, below.  And, after three years of deep and intensive research, he too is now a believer.


I'm looking forward to reading this book.

The commercialistic aspect bothers me.

Do you mean that information in book form is objectionable?  Do you reject everything in books because they are sold on the open market?
