Nice for you.
What makes me feel that the experience was authentic was the fact that I had been following a strict philosophical discipline at the time which actually lead me to this deep understanding.
Which "strict philosophical discipline" was this?
Which "deep understanding" are you talking about? But lets backtrack, are you talking about re-incarnation rather than living the same life again, a la Neitchze's Eternal recurrence?
When it comes to describing what I went through, words fail me.
There is no way I could explain or describe the breakthrough.
But not enough for you to not describe it as confirming this life re-living of yours? So there must be some connection, what is it?
Those who know, do not speak. Those who speak, do not know.

Typical pick 'n' mix westerner, the Dao actually says;
"Those who know do not talk. Those who talk do not know. Keep your mouth closed. Guard your senses. Temper your sharpness. Simplify your problems. Mask your brightness. Be at one with the dust of the Earth. This is primal union. He who has achieved this state Is unconcerned with friends and enemies, With good and harm, with honor and disgrace. This therefore is the highest state of man"
You think this you?
