I am very interested in hearing people's thoughts about whether we plan our lives before we incarnate. I believe that we plan our lives in great detail for purposes of spiritual growth.

Not sure what the truth is, but I notice how the answer gets used politically:

If we choose our experience, then it is not necessary to care for those who are suffering - they chose it. Conservatives like this answer.

If we are dropped without choice into our experience, then those who suffer must of course be cared for -
Liberals like this answer.

In my opinion, seeing how complex the rest of the universe is, neither one of these positions could be fully true.

My two-cents worth, and worth every penny!

Hi Robert,
I think what is most relevant is the application of the idea of having a sacred contract gives the Seeker a map to follow. Of course the "map is not the territory" but they are very useful for deepening self-knowledge. As far as matters of God are concerned, I think we all have a personal relationship with God (or spirit or whatever you want to call the divine) and each of us will have our own unique perspective of the divine which is just another map. The actual experience of God can only be talked about so we are limited when it comes to trying to explain how we experience who God is. http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/x-locale/communities/discussion_boards/post2-glossy._V47082004_.gif

How about we co-create our reality with the Divine?
