Throughout our lives, we all experience things we simply can’t explain. Like thinking about someone only for them to call that very day. Or Visiting somewhere for the first time but knowing you’ve been before….
But where do these experiences come from? In Buddhism it’s believed they come from Karmic imprints. For example, from episodes of our past lives which we brought to this one along with our Subtle Consciousness. According to Buddhism, we have 2 main levels of consciousness concerned with rebirth. These are Gross Consciousness (The things we know in this life from experience. Our family, our job and where we live etc) Also our Subtle Consciousness – The things we learn but don’t actually experience. For example, we know India is a hot country – we may not have been to India but information, pictures, and people describe it so we form the picture. We know we feel happy when learning new languages because we’re good at it – not nescessarily because we like the language. When we’re reborn, Buddhists believe it’s the subtle consciousness we carry with us and we leave behind the gross consciousness. But we aren’t all Buddhists! We all have these experiences and different viewpoints about why.
What strange experiences have you had? And how do you explain them?
