FAQ: How many past lives have I lived (the number or item count)?
Death is but a path that must be trod,
"We live in deeds not years..." It is not the number of lives you have lived... it is the experience you have had during those years which matters the most.
Compare the experience of the President of the United States during their four year term of service with that of the average American.
* The President: is on duty every minute of the day... has to carry codes for the launch of nuclear missiles... has to know things that the American public cannot know for their own protection... is subject to media scrutiny not only in the US but around the world. The non stop pressure and the unrelenting challenges noticeably ages each President during their term of office as if they had lived 40 years and not just 4.
So, karmically, what matters is not how many past lives you have lived ... but what you have learned during the lives you have lived.
* Presidential Experience: If you have lived a few but very action packed lives - having a "presidential" type of experience during them - you will rapidly advance in awareness.Whether you advance in awareness quickly or slowly is solely up to you. No "style points" for speed are added or deducted by karma. Eventually everyone will learn the lessons of karma as they move through their cycles of reincarnation whether they choose to have "presidential" or "average" experiences of life.
The better question to ask yourself is "How much have I advanced in awareness due to my past life experience?" To measure that advancement for yourself, consult the Rules on Hallmarks of the Spiritually Advanced Beings!
