If reincarnation is really true, and you're given the chance to reincarnate to a kind of animal, what would it be?
Me, I want to be a bat... how about you?
I would be a cat. I could come and go as I please, be independent enough to catch a rat, be fed by owners (well, they'd think they were owners), and I could sleep my life away... Purrrrrrr.
A brand new Jerry Garcia sans drugs, with the same guitar. I took the liberty of going for human in place of animal. Sorry/Thanks
I'd be a lion, sleeps all day, the females bring the food and I would be the king. Of course hopefully I'd be away from man.
I think I'd come back as an Axolotl , just 'cuz they're cool - and I like the name....
...even though sometimes I feel like blobfish.
I'd wanna be a seaturtle. Live my life in the ocean and just be...
I'd want to be elusive antideluvian humanoid being... so I wouldn't have to worry so much about being eaten or kicked by humans. XD
An eagle, so I could soar above the earth and all its problems. Make my home on a mountain cliff where no one would bother me, and I would remain at the top of the food chain.
I wouldn't want to come back as any animal. They have no real power, no real freedom, no real control over their lives. Be it a domestic house cat or a powerful animal in the wild... all are subject to the whims and folly of man. House pets can be discarded and sent to shelters, wild animals can be hunted or pouched. No one asks their opinion... "Do you mind if I slaughter you for food?" Cosmetic companies and medical researchers can test and experiment on them. In the turf war between animals and man, animals always get the short end of the stick.
Nope, there is no animal I'd ever want to come back as.
You know some people also have no real powers too, no real freedom, no real control over their lives. No one asks their opinion... "Do you want to get out of Africa so you won't die of famine?". The difference is just they don't get to be eaten. (but i heard about this group...ahm...the cannibals, yeah..they do.) And those cosmetic companies, they experiment on humans(poor people who needs money for food) too...
This is a real big cold cruel world...that is, if you want to think of it that way. or you could start buying some crayola on a store and sing Hakuna matata with us!
you've got to let go of that rage in your heart.
LOL, let go of the rage in my heart! You make me laugh. Absolutely that will never happen. I was born with it and it burns hot and bright inside of me.
That rage is the reason I didn't just role up into a ball and die at 11 when my mother passed away and the state took me and decided where and with whom I would live. It's the reason I'm not sitting around feeling sorry for myself and gobbling anti-depressants thinking about how I can't function in society because I'm the poor victim of something that four boys did to me in the bathroom of some stinking foster home I was sent to live in and blaming somebody else for whatever misery there might have been in my life. It's the reason I told the doctor who told me I had cancer and to get my affairs in order to screw himself because I wasn't ready to go down that road and if he couldn't help me, I'd find somebody who could, and I did. It's also the reason why I was able to get myself into a financial situation where I've got the means to do just about anything I want and no one in my family or that I love lacks for anything or ever goes without.
The human condition may not always ideal but I still wouldn't want to come back as anything but a human being. I'd rather be holding the leash, than be lead by it.
A mustang somewhere in the rockies - the hearts and souls of horses are so incredible and the freedom of the mountains! I am guessing we get to take our awareness in the transformation? heh

If you believe in reincarnation, what would you reincarnate to?I know I would pick something that could fly. I would love to just fly above everything else, have it be a natural activity. Though, not as a bug. Probably a bird.

In your personal spiritual beliefs, do animals have souls? Are they interchangeable with human souls? In the past few days I've spent some time looking into my dog's eyes, and I can't decide what I believe...
