the mountain may be heavy in and of itself, but if you're not trying to carry it it's not heavy to you- Ajaan Suwat

You are giving very little information as to what you mean?
from the simple explanation you give I think you are on about the amount of lives
one life being only this life
two lives being earth and heaven or hell
and the three lives being the rebirth or reincarnation model
but still not sure what you re referencing to unless it is one of the levels of enlightenment stream entry being no more than 7 lives etc

so this thread is prety much a non-starter then?

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...
