|Peterson?! Where've I heard that name before, I wonder?|
|The Melbourne Star (previously Southern Star)|
|Is that a bird flying through the wheel?|
|"Every Man and Woman Is a Star", is originally attributed to Aleister Crowley|
|All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players?|
|My ticket to ride the wheel on Sunday in Melbourne|
|The seven-pointed star of the Australian flag under the Union Jack|
I asked the ticket seller how many times we get to go round and the reply was "only once, but it takes a long time (30 minutes) to go round".
I couldn't help thinking of the "Wheel of Life" the Buddhists refer to in their teachings when I was told we only get to go once round and if you want to ride again you have to pay once more to go round.
I always felt drawn to Ireland and Japan when I saw pictures of the rural countryside of these nations.
It was some distant emotional recognition of a clouded memory in me like an Alzheimer's patient might get when they see the face of a familiar loved one they have spent their life with, but now quite don't know that life they have lived with them and why they seem familiar.

|'Digging in the Dirt'? WTF?|
It must have been a Melbourne company that owned the digger and me being from Brisbane I've never seen a digger with that name on it.
"Wheel of Life", as I boarded for my once around in Melbourne, as the last thing I said to my ex-wife the last time I had ever talked to her (on the phone it was) was something like, "I hope life gives you what you deserve, and that's not a blessing, it's a curse. What goes around comes around".
|The cat doppelgänger I saw in Hobart|
'Digging in the Dirt' came on my car radio, which was parked not far from the hole I was digging for my cat -
A Cascade of Rabbits?
|My cat Sylvester caught in the bathroom of an old rental house we lived in|
I was really starting to think this road-trip was being guided by the universe now and that I was just along for the ride when I thought I was the one doing the driving on this road-trip.
Seeing that cat in Hobart had me scratching my head, but the digger with my ex-wife's maiden name on it not far from this Ferris wheel was much more than a coincidence to me.
My Cat Sylvester (R.I.P.) and Memories (CATS) of the Future and the Past?
|Looking into the heart of the wheel|
Looking up at the roof of the carriage I was on there was the above image of the North Star, which I have written about seeing
in Port Macquarie -
True North (Star)?
Now I got why the Melbourne Star was located in a place called "Docklands" with that seafaring star on the roof of each cabin. ;-)
|Docklands/Wheel of Life/ True North?|
|True North (Star)?|
|Looking out towards Flemington racecourse|
Well, that turned out to be one philosophical spin around Melbourne.
And who knows, I might just do it again one day if it is in the cards for me?-)
Another synchronicity for me was that night in my motel room I'm flicking through the TV channels and Master-chief are doing all their cooking on the Melbourne Star.
|Black hole, or rabbit hole?-)|
I found Lorraine Flaherty's site when I was looking for some You Tubes about past lives and found the first clip right up the top about the guy who thought he was a man called Peterson, who got killed in WWII.
I thought this was rather a personal sync for me as I had just written a post about my friend Ken Peterson and our weird syncs in this post -

I also thought it was interesting that Lorraine appears to have green eyes, like I do ;-)
Green Eyes, a Marker of Alien Hybridity?!
I must say though, that while I do believe I have lived before, I personally wouldn't have a lot of faith in uncovering them through hypnotic regression, but if it helps people to think they are solving a big problem in this life by going through it and finding what they think might be the problem from a "past life", then what does it really matter if that life is just pure fantasy, as long as it gives them a sense of peace to get through this life?
