Why We Don't Remember Our Past Lives

"Who knows what he sowed in past eras? Who knows of his deeds in past lives?" "Your spirit has lived long, but your flesh does not know it. If your body has forgotten the first years of your infancy, how can it recognize the evolution of your spirit along the lengthy journey?" "What do you know about your past, and how far back is your origin? What do you know about where you came from, where have you been, and where are you heading?" "I conceal from you that book of your past, for if you were to contemplate its pages, you would weep of sorrow and sicken with sadness. And in many, the bitterness and horror would be of such magnitude that they would consider themselves unworthy of forgiveness and redemption." "Think upon how many times, in this life that you now have, there have been days when you have prayed at dusk to forget all about what you went through since daybreak. Imagine of the heavy burden that men would have to carry if they were to remember each and every one of their past wrongdoings, mistakes and even crimes of all their past existences. It is my divine compassion the one that protects you with the merciful veil of oblivion."

I don't believe in reincarnation, but I do believe that we knew God before we were born. Some, very few are able to remember those times and are blessed.

If you knew God before you were born, then that was a past life (translate past existence). Thus, then you are saying you do believe in a past life/existence.

I totally disagree with the other posts. Read the book on "Past Lives and Future Healing" by Sylvia Browne. I like to keep an open mind about things. To be narrow minded is pure ignorance. I remember 2 of my past lives. For 2 years I suffered from a strange homesick feeling about the country Italy. I have never been there in my present life. Whenever I think about Italy, I start to get emotional. I have a strong connection about this country. I feel like I want to go back. How is this possible? So I did some extensive research about past lives and reincarnation. I do feel like I have lived in this country before. In my other past life, I was buried alive. I remember it like it is still fresh in my mind. I even dreamt about this traumatic life. I realized now why I have trouble trusting people in my current life and that I didn't have very many friends. And the shortness of breath that I currently suffer from is carried over from this past life.

We don't remember past lives because we haven't had any. That's nothing but ignorant superstition.

I will gladly wear the veil of ignorance to forget many of the past occurances I have lived through in this life. And if my past existence was as hard then he is indeed merciful for veiling the memories.
