What if I told you that we weren't all created equal, but not in the way you would assume? Simply as humans we are all one and equal in that way, of course. But, we all come into this life with past experiences that shape us from the beginning. We have all lived numerous lives and lived many lives with many of the people that are in our daily life today. Ever have a fear of something, but you have no recollection of anything happening in your life that would have innately made you fearful of that thing? Maybe you have always been incredibly good at something since a very young age even though you never had any training at whatever that may be. These could be experiences and memories from a past life. That is why we aren't created equal. No one is better than anyone else, nor worse for that matter, but we all come into this world with a different bag of experiences. Some of those may be there to help us and some may be there because we have to conquer them.
There is a reason why there are some people that you meet that make you feel like you have known them forever....you very well may have. Or, how some people just feel like "old souls" or even "young souls". We have these feelings of just "knowing" even though we don't know why.
Here is an example from my own life. When my oldest son was about 3 years old he said to my husband, "Daddy, remember when we rode motorcycles together?" My husband of course told him, "We've never ridden motorcycles, you're 3!" My son simply said, "No, I mean from last time, you know...last time we were together". On another note, when I mention a story to my younger son and I tell him that he hadn't been born yet when such and such happened, he giggles and says "You mean when I was still dead?" The funny thing is that he is totally serious, lol. It has become very clear to me in my own life that my little family and I have been together before and were meant to be together again in this life to learn more lessons from one another.
