Or perhaps this past life keeps coming up now because it needs to be dealt with.
When I was in college I met a man who caused me great emotional turmoil
everytime I saw him. I'd probably spoken three words to him as a fellow art
student, yet he caused an avalanche of feelings in me. We did get to know each
other as friends and he gave me copy of Be Here Now and introduced me to other
spiritual ideas that were, at that time, foreign to my culture and family
background. Later, I found out he was a student of mine in a past life, giving
me a needed shove on the path in this life.
So there was a lot of emotional pain and confusion that went on for at least two
years, yet it worked out in the end.
I agree, though, that knowing all of our past lives, or even several that don't
pertain to this one, would be very distracting.

I am reading "The Astrology of Fate" and Liz Greene mentions that during a
transit of Uranus she was introduced quite by accident to Isabel Hickey who took
her briefly as a prize student and then dismissed her quite rudely and quickly.
Liz was so made she studied astrology out of spite. Uranus often bring quick
painful teachers into our lives that teach us long life changing lessons very
quickly and disruptively, like a lightening flash. There are other stories like
Nietsche and Wagener, Freud and Jung, Geore Sand and Chopin and so one that fit
this love 'em and leave 'em type fueding teacher-student relationships.
