Hey George, I woke up after an odd dream the other night thinking about past lives and I wondered if you might have some opinions on my questions. Most of the stuff I have read on between life stuff seems to indicate that people choose their next life circumstances as a means of spiritual growth. If that is the case, why do we carry past life baggage? Shouldn't that stuff have been dealt with between "lives"? If we carry it into the next life does that mean we have it for a reason? Should we be wary about getting rid of the baggage? Mightn't we have those things for the purpose of dealing with them in life, instead of the quick way you have to deal with them? I'm sure you have far deeper knowledge of this than I do and would appreciate your insights.
