The Lincoln and Kennedy Connection
According to reincarnation beliefs, history tends to repeat itself
until those who have participated in it learn their lessons and change for the
better. This means that an individual may face identical situations from one life to
the next until they are able to conquer whatever "cause and effect"
chain-reaction they have caused from a previous life. As an example, a person who
"lives by the sword" in one life and dies without having made amends for his
mistakes, will in the next life be faced with identical situations which must be
overcome. Ultimately, such a person will have to face themselves and have inflicted
upon them everything they have inflicted upon others. Divine justice in many
religions shows that those who "live by the sword" will "die by the
sword", if not in their present life, but likely in a future life.
Reincarnation theory states that those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat
The lives of President Kennedy and President
Lincoln had so many parallels that it cannot be dismissed as pure coincidence. To my mind,
these parallels are evidence of history repeating itself and evidence of reincarnation. To
me, these parallels may be circumstantial evidence that President Kennedy was the
reincarnation of President Lincoln. You decide for yourself.
Both were elected to Congress in
46. Both were elected President in 60. Both had the legality of
their elections contested. Both were directly involved with black civil
rights. Both lost a son while serving as President. Both were killed while
serving as President.
Lincoln's staffer, whose name was Kennedy,
advised him not to go to the theater. Kennedy's secretary, whose name was Lincoln,
advised him not to go to Dallas. Lincoln was fond of Monroe,
Maryland (He had visited it a week before he was shot). Kennedy was fond of Marilyn Monroe.
Both were shot on a Friday. Both were
shot in the head from behind. Both were shot in the presence of their wives.
Both were shot while sitting with another couple.
Both were shot with another member of their
entourage being injured, but not fatally. Lincoln was shot in Ford's Theater.
Kennedy was shot in a Ford Lincoln.
Both assassins were born in 39.
Both were Southerners favoring extremist views. Both are known by their first,
middle and last names. Booth ran from the theater and was captured in a
warehouse. Oswald ran from the warehouse and was captured in a theater. Both
were themselves assassinated before their trials.
Both Presidents successors were
Southern Democrats. Both successors had the last name of Johnson. Both
successors were Vice-Presidents. Both successors were born in 08. Both
successors were former senators.
Both Presidents caskets were carried in
death on the same caisson.
It appears that history does indeed repeat
itself. Perhaps it is the same cast of characters playing the same roles over and
over again. I think William Shakespeare was right all along: All the world is
a stage and we are but the players.
