QUESTION: What is the Huna view on reincarnation? Can dreams be soul memories since there really is no time and space?

ANSWER: The first principle of Huna says that the world is what you think it is, so obviously beliefs about reincarnation depend on basic assumptions about life. If you believe in linear time and one life per person, then reincarnation is a fallacy and soul memories are a fantasy. If you believe in cyclic time and cyclic lives, then reincarnation is natural and dreams can be soul memories. If you believe in simultaneous time and lives as dreams, then sequential reincarnation is a very limited concept and all dreams are real. If you believe that time, space, and life as we know it are all illusions, then reincarnation is just a word and dreams cannot be soul memories.

And if you are able to change your basic assumptions according to need and circumstance, then you can believe in reincarnation on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays; not believe in it on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays; and be open-minded about it on Sunday.


  1. Thanks, Serge.
    My question then is: What does humanity desire in that respect?
    Because if we would have the same desire as one humanity, that's likely how it would manifest, no? How about some paradise for all :)?

  2. I see that the concept of TIME is important for me to look at from different perspectives. Thanks for your reply - in proper "Serge-manner" as always :)
    Me Ke Aloha,

  3. Aloha Alexandra. It's sooo funny. I just have this discussion with a friend who sees humans as timeless and wants to be timeless. Time is necessary for identity though and identity is the base of experience... Working on it :)
    Thank you/mahalo

  4. Aloha Nikki!
    Ah, but identity based on time (history) is only another illusion if we believe in eternal life. I think time is a currency that we need to relate with each other.
