Non-chronological living revisited

The sources for this post are “Seth Speaks”, “The Education of Oversoul 7” and “Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah”.
In a previous post, I wrote about people I call, ‘backward livers’. I speculated that Cyrano de Bergerac and Leonardo Da Vinci may have been souls who had opted to return to a previous historical period for one or more lifetimes. This might account for the fact that de Bergerac wrote science fiction and speculated that the moon is a separate place in space which we could, given the technology, visit one day. And for the designs of da Vinci’s futuristic machines like his submarine and flying machine.

At that time, Matthew, a channel of an entity called Polaris, told me that backward living is more common than I had thought it to be.
So I dove back into my books and found, early in “Seth Speaks”, an allusion to that fact.

Seth calls our lifetimes, ‘Period Pieces’.
First, Seth says, we create our environment from scratch. They seem to suggest [though I’m not positive of the literal meaning] that each individual soul creates its own environment
on the planet. That, as a result, each of us is literally living on a minutely different planet than every other soul on the ‘earth.’

In fact, this idea is alluded to in Richard Bach’s fiction book, “Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah.” The Messiah explains to the main character [Richard] that Richard lives in, literally, a different world from a chess champion or an Eastern European peasant.

So, the Period Pieces or plays that we embark on, although they are real, are, at the same time, illusions. The central character in the play [the ‘I’] designs the set, writes the play, acts the primary part. The Oversoul [the root soul who designed the personality and produced the play] is aware of what is going on during each of its plays. It simultaneously interacts in each of its lifetimes and observes them. It exists within and without each play. And all the plays are going on at the same ‘time’.

All of this is not to say that the play is not to be taken seriously. It is serious business because it is our primary learning tool.
To suggest that a previous play [say one in which we were living at the level of the Baby Consciousness] is less important than one in which we are an Old Soul would be similar to an assertion by a graduate student that 5th grade was not important. Without the skills learned in 5th grade, the grad student could not have advanced to high school, let alone graduate school.

The actions we engage in during the course of our respective plays have real consequences in that we can learn from the experiences. How much impact they have on other people de
pends, at least to some extent, on how much impact that other person allows them to have.

All I can say to all of this is: I wish things were set up in such a way that my keys actually were in the place I thought I left them instead of the place my illusionary self apparently left them when I came home yesterday. That would make things so much easier.

Anyhow, galloping back to the point of Backward Livers [that’s where we started, remember?]
I first came across this concept [at least in a form I could understand] in Jane Robert’s fictional story, ‘The Education of Oversoul Seven’. One personality that had been designed by Seven died in the twentieth century and the next incarnation began in the fourteenth century.

Ever since then, personalities like Galileo, de Bergerac and [I hope] Gene Roddenberry have made more sense to me.
We all know, of course, of the futuristic designs of da Vinci. And I just learned of de Bergerac’s views about the moon and the other planets.
And, from what I’ve read, Roddenberry adamantly insisted during the Star Trek series that the characters get along with each other.
He envisioned an Earth that had moved beyond poverty, war, pollution, bigotry. The people cared about each other, cooperated in all their ventures and the highest calling for each was learning and self-improvement.
The only time he was allowed to depict that world was during ST-Next Generation [by far my favorite of the series] because, without conflict of some sort, the jobs of the writers and directors becomes much more difficult.
Still, do you see why I ardently hope that Roddenberry was one who returned to show us what lies in store for the human race?

Seth said, in Seth Speaks, that we all live our lives in no specific historic order. They say that, Cayce and others who introduced the idea of reincarnation to the planet before Seth and Michael made their appearances, had presented the idea of chronological lifetimes because that concept was what we were ready, early on, to accept. The reality—lifetimes that occur in a rather higglety-pigglety fashion down through history and, in fact, are all happening simultaneously—is more difficult to comprehend and so had been left for later lessons.

To be honest, I’m not sure I’m ready for this lesson, even yet.
For instance, how does this concept fit in with the statement Michael has made that Infant souls are coming to the planet in fewer and fewer numbers ‘now’?
If all ‘NOWS’ are simultaneous, couldn’t an Infant start it’s lifetimes in the 21st century and live backward—thus avoiding the massive cleanup of the planet [one of the arguments against starting ‘now’]? That reasoning seems to suggest that lives, generally speaking, move forward chronologically and an Infant who started now would be stuck with the cleanup in some future time.

Maybe I’m missing something here? If you have any ideas about all of this, please weigh in.
As so often happens in these posts, my head is beginning to spin—again. **sigh**
