Tonight I thought I would blog about the ideology of reincarnation. Despite being brought up as a Catholic, I do not consider myself an actual Catholic. Part of the reason why I do not consider myself one is because I love to embrace different cultures and ethnicity from around the globe, and am particularly fascinated by Buddhism. The idea of reincarnation to me, seems so much more liable than any other mysteries of any afterlife.
You know when you meet someone for the first time and things just click? The conversation flows easily, you both laugh at stupid, simple things, and you think to yourself “Why am I only meeting you now?!” When I recently met someone with this kind of experience, we talked about it, and she told me that she believed that we must of known each other in our past life, in whatever form we could of been. For all we know, we could have been dogs, or birds, but best friends. The whole idea of it seems mysterious because it lies deep in our unconcious, which is why humans experience deja vu, which happens to be linked to the idea of reincarnation.
It’s a beautiful, deep mystery that has fascinated many scientists from around the world. The way I look at it is that if you live your current life poorly by mistreating others, and going about life in an immoral manner, you will be born into life as a lesser form, such as an ant, or even a tree maybe. On the contrary, if you live your current life as good, you will be born as a greater form, such as an angel, or even better; a child of a multi-billionaire family business.
Whatever you may believe in, express the feelings it brings. You cannot read out of the bible but not act towards its words, for instance. Religion is beautiful but only when expressed beautifully. But be careful with how you express religion, because as always, not everyone will agree with you. We live in a world full of different opinions and beliefs, and as humans we must learn to respect and love each other, despite our differences.
Live, Laugh, Love.
