Ah yes, mid Netflix show, that quote caught my attention enough to write it down: “The Garden of Forking Paths.”
The show was “The OA” and it was spoken in an early episode of season 2. And if anyone follows that particular series, you are open to considering multi-dimensional theory and the eternity of the Soul in its pure-light state that simply “samples” life in many different roles and many different settings throughout collective consciousness timeframes.
I assume the woman they call OA is the Divine Incarnate reference to the Alpha and the Omega, except it is reversed so that she is known as ‘the ending and the beginning’ (the Omega and the Alpha). She is the Eternal One with self/True Self awareness—she is the aware and intentional traveler between or among all transitory lives.
Now in theory we all travel many journeys and live many diverse lives throughout the created construct of TIME. We ALL walk ‘the garden of forking paths.’ It’s just that most of us aren’t aware of doing more than one life at a time while staying within the parameters of that life experience.
OA had the option of shifting out of one life and into another but finding “the cast of players” seemed to be similar in those different lives. It’s just that few cast members remembered the others from one life to the next.
But, and it’s an important BUT, … she eventually realizes what happens in one life affects all other lives and affects all other participants in those other dimensions. Which means that whatever issues are resolved in one life, resolve smoothly in the other lives, and whatever issues remain unresolved prior to that person’s death in that life, are left to the other lives to resolve the issue in order to free the ‘karma,’ if you will, of all the original issue’s participants.
I know it seems complicated in a way, but to me who actually guides hypnosis clients through their own “Past-life Explorations,” it makes perfect sense; so I enjoy the interesting theories and subject treatments that this series explores.
“The OA” isn’t a ‘warm and fuzzy’ nighttime tale, but it is a thought-provoking exploration of how we move through life in different situations with diverse and even life-threatening challenges; and how we confront shadow issues in ourselves and in others.
I thought season two of “The OA” took it to an even higher comprehension level. And I applaud the writers for that. Good stuff! Well done!
