Immortality too is discussed using an old paradigm adding to further confusion. The next area of illusion is the illusion of correction. Do not ever believe and take to heart anyone who tells you that your soul needs correction, especially the correction of lifetimes. This only stimulates your guilt and causes you to be subject to anothers will. Resist this on all levels. Stay with me I will tie all of this together. One more thing to complete the cloaking of who you really are is your soul. Forget about the soul or any concept that others may define for you. What you want in terms of all your questions is the certainty of being. Here is how you get to this or become this.
You are here for a purpose. Define this purpose. You make the definition by taking responsibility for your definition. If you don't like the definition of who you are, change it. The only freedom you ever have is your freedom to change your mind. You are already Immortal. You continue. There is your certainty. Because you continue and are eternal you now have the necessary distance to make your world into that which you would imagine it to be.
