It's not previous lives, it's parallel lives

We usually perceive ourselves as a body in the world and try from this perspective to "go out" into what we call "the beyond", to the soul, to let go the world and go beyond it.

It's petrifying how little from the world truly exists: only the now.

lilian's picture

The world around us as well as the world inside us (which are not different, it is just the ego that separates them) are chaotic.

They are chaotic in all aspects: in the sense that we do not really understand them, in the sense that our mind is not fast enough to keep pace with and observe them in real time, in the sense that they are composed from endless tiny particles, details, and processes, in the sense that we cannot have any control over them, none whatsoever!
