Into the Paranormal: Reincarnation
Here is another of my Paranormal posts. If you have a topic you’d like me to discuss, feel free to leave me a comment. =) This one is an edited post I did previously on reincarnation. What do you think about the topic?
Reincarnation is the belief that when a person dies that their soul comes back in another body. It is apparent in several religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Neopaganism. Some believe that if you didn’t live a good enough life, then you return to Earth as a being of less worth. Although, if you did live a good life, you come closer towards enlightenment.
My thought on reincarnation is that it might be possible, but I but haven’t really contemplated it much. I’ve seen movies and TV shows dealing with it. There was an episode of Blood Ties that had about a guy and a woman that had so many lifetimes together, and in each life they would find each other by going back to a certain tree. In the current life, she was older than him and had gotten married, but he was insistent on them being together to the point that he was trying to mess up her marriage. It was romantic at first, but then it turned into downright creepy. With that in mind, I think I prefer the concept of living out my life and then having my soul move on to the “afterlife.” This world can be challenging enough with the thought of living in it once, let alone an infinite amount of times! lol
Plus, if you think about it, in my personal opinion, if reincarnation was real then why would there be a such thing as ghosts and spirits trapped here on earth? They would go on to their next life right? Hmm… I don’t know.
Do you believe in it, or do you hold some skepticism for it like I do?
