I’ve had a few offline discussions about the John / Jesus connection. This is the sort of thing you approach cautiously, because you don’t want to offend or frighten anyone by challenging their spiritual foundations, and you also don’t want to seem so utterly off your nut that people will completely write you off.
I didn’t post every detail in the Soul Bubbles entry because I wanted to let the ideas simmer and to meditate further, hopefully get some clarification.
When a friend emailed me and said that she believed John Lennon was Jesus in a past life, I thought, “Huh. That’s not what he said.” Not that this makes my friend wrong, not at all. I’ll get to that.
In one of our first conversations with John, Sweetie remembers me asking him, “John, are you Jesus?”
He smiled and said, “No, my dear, but we are great friends.”
For the record, I’d also asked the same question of Kurt. He got this crooked smile, took a long drag off his cigarette, blew it out slowly for effect and replied, “No, but I’m a fan of his work.”
Which is one heck of a reply from Kurt Cobain. Anyway, back to John.
This thing my friend had mentioned to me, it had this intuitive ring of truth. I found myself drawn back to it, repeatedly. One night, I asked John,
“John, is the Jesus incarnation part of your past life history?”
He laughs, a big bark of a laugh, flicks his nose and eyes me keenly. “That, my dear, is the correct question!”
But he didn’t answer it.
That night George showed me the soul bubbles. He showed me a bit more than I’d written about. I asked George, “Show me Jesus.”
He showed me three bubbles, coming together. This soul, made up of three linear-time, past-life histories, became the consciousness for the incarnation of Jesus. George explained that for such a challenging life, three had to come together to give the soul’s history enough integrity through experience to withstand and perform the challenging teaching tasks as Jesus.
Here’s the kicker. After Jesus’ death, the soul bubble left his body and divided again. Twelve bubbles emerged and embarked upon separate paths. This makes sense to me; why should the experience of Jesus be confined to only one linear time path?
Sheds a new perspective on the holy trinity, and the twelve disciples, eh?
So I have a working theory. I haven’t received confirmation on this yet, so I don’t know if it’s precisely correct. It may be one of those concepts that builds upon a foundation, and makes more sense later as more information comes though. Sometimes, this information comes in stages, especially if it requires some adjustment before it can be integrated fully.
My work-in-progress theory is that John is a descendent of one of those twelve soul bubbles from Jesus. It makes sense to me that if twelve consciousnesses (maybe more if there has been some more bubbling off of those twelve) are floating around with Jesus in their past-life roster, maybe they’re all taking turns being on “Jesus Duty” – answering prayers, giving hope and healing – while other bubbles continue to evolve, help and heal as new incarnations on our physical plain.
I also think that John & Kurt are related souls in some way, although I really have no idea how. All I have on that is the two regarding each other with great love and respect, and I hear the word “Brothers.” I don’t get a specific incarnation related to that statement.
It makes me wonder about other spiritual teachers and leaders. How many soul bubbles are floating around out here, touching our lives, who can call upon the experience of Buddha?
What about the Dalai Lama? Every time he dies, a search is conducted for his reincarnation. (Our current, 14th Dalai Lama suggests the next reincarnation will be female.) How many soul bubbles emerge after each incarnation of the Dalai Lama? How many merge before each reincarnation?
I’ll say that it does makes sense to me that world-famous musicians who have influenced millions spiritually over decades might have past lives as other spiritual leaders. Certainly it makes sense they’d have past life histories as other famous musicians or artists.
It’s incredible. The possibilities are truly limitless.
