Disappointment in life

Reincarnation of disappointed women

Yesterday I was at a dinner honoring Karol’s father who turned 88.  Sitting next to me was one of Karol’s sisters.  She’s a gentle and kind hearted woman who is retired at the age of 55 from a state government position.  She never had children because of a brain tumor she suffered when she was in her teens.  She is a strong Catholic, but she listens to my reincarnation stories with amusement.

Just for fun, I turned to her at dinner and asked her, “So what are you going to be in your next life?”

“I don’t know, I have not decided yet.”  She said with a smile.

“But what would you like to do?” I persisted.

“I would like to have kids”, her eyes betraying a hint of sadness.

“Well you know, you have already lived plenty of lives when you had many children.  You are just taking a break from all of that in this life. So you will have some in the next life, unless you want to come back as a male.”

“No, I don’t think I would make a good male” she replied.

“I agree. Do you know why you do not have kids in this life? It because…” letting her fill in the blanks.

“It’s because I could experience what life would be without them?”

“Exactly, you catch on quick!” I responded.

Although the sister is a Catholic, I could see that the conversation gave her some comfort.  Which actually is the whole purpose of this website.
