I found this neat website thanks to a friend at MySpace. It's filled with neat information and knowledge. I found the following quotes which echo my beliefs:
"We do not go round a circle of existence.
That is an illusion, just as the cycling of
the planets and the stars is an illusion.
We move along a spiral track.
It is not quite the same journey from the
cradle to the grave each time.
Sometimes the differences are small.
Sometimes they are very important.
We set out each time on the same road
but along that road we have a choice of adventures."
~ J. B. Priestley ~ I Have Been Here Before
"All souls were created in the beginning and are
spiraling their way back to whence they came."
~ Edgar Cayce ~
