While the idea of the life review occurring in reverse order is something I’ve only encountered with Rudolf Steiner, the theory that we feel how our words and actions affect the “other” seems fairly universal. Something to really think about.
The first draft of my upcoming book, now actually a two-volume set, is nearing completion. Thank you for your patience as the process continues to unfold.
When, after death, we go through our previous earthly life in reverse order, we feel the effects which our actions, will impulses, and thoughts had on other people as well as other creatures. During that period, we do not feel what we have personally felt while in the physical body, but what we have caused other souls and other entities to feel.
