a little different this time. I came across a fascinating
website recently, entitled "Afterlife Files,"*
hosted by Freestone Wilson. With his permission, I would
like to share some of the ideas he recorded in a piece

revelations seem to come in dreams. In this particular
dream, he was shown how souls learn about their future
life on the earth. We are enabled to see the entire
lifescript of our next incarnation.
He says that the script contains 'choice points"
where our soul can choose one of many options. At these
points, according to him, we can see the ramifications
of every possible choice, "as if someone were in
an airplane 1000 feet over a 300 acre farm and the whole
farm is seen at once."
consequences of all our difference options exist until
the moment when we make a choice about which way to
go. At that moment, all the other consequences disappear.
He describes it this way:
the soul had a choice between joining the army or
going to college, he would see the results of both
actions. Suppose he chose to go to college. Then the
"reality" of his army experiences no longer
exists. But, in addition, whatever is chosen also
affects what comes before. For instance, if he chose
the college path in the fall of 2001, then he would
have signed up for certain college courses in 1999
before he even knew he would be going to college.
If, on the other hand, he decided to join the army
in 2001, he would have taken up an offer from his
friend in the summer of 1999 to go on an "Outward
Bound" experience. If he had chosen college,
the friend would not even have asked him two years
a 2010 choice would have led him to do something terrible,
like killing someone. This particular soul might set
it up so that he himself would be killed in a car
accident in 1998. His desire to avoid becoming a murderer
is so strong that he makes sure that he would not
exist in 2010 to commit the crime. If, on the other
hand, he chose another path, one which would not lead
him to murder, then that oncoming car would not run
the stop sign.
I have no idea whether any of this is true, but it does
stimulate our thinking. Our life is not just a jumble
of unrelated experiences. It does not happen in a random
fashion where nothing is thought out ahead of time,
and every moment is a meaningless accident. God is the
creator who has designed us to be creators also. We
have a great deal to say about the shape and direction
of our life. We need to be conscious about the decisions
we make, and to know that every breath we take affects
