    Do you believe in reincarnation or some sort of reverse life?

    I have seen and read many stories on reincarnation....if that is "true" what happens when the world ends? when life ceases to exist on this solar system...?

    Do you beleive that we somehow repeat this life again? (maybe doing things better)
    Like to read your thoughts, thanks!

    I don't necessarily believe in reincarnation, but I believe that life is eternal although it may not be in this physical form. We don't repeat the same things again and again, 'til we get it "right". Each time a similar experience comes into our lives it's more intense if there is something we need to learn or pay attention to. So, we don't have the same experience again, we have the next experience. Each time is a new opportunity. We either evolve or devolve, but we move along taking what we've learned, even if we've forgotten and have no memory of it. IF reincarnation is true in some format, we live many lives and have many births and deaths. We may complete our journey before this world ends. Or perhaps we'll continue elsewhere. Additionally, many people believe that they go back to the Source when they are complete with their cycle of reincarnated lives. I don't see any factors about reincarnation being related to or dependent on "the end of the world".

    Yes, I do believe in reincarnation. There were things have happened that we can't explain with science.  I believe the spirit of a soul still exist after the body is dead.  But I don't think we can repeat our current life again.  We might come back and experience a different form of life in a different setting.

    If you want to learn about reincarnation I would study the Vedas ( ancient texts of India). I would read the Bhagavad-Gita as It is written by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. 

    You will be surprised at what you may learn.  The universe is vast.  I would be more concerned about the transmigration of my would rather than what happens to the physical planet. This planet is small and will likely die when the Sun dies if not sooner.  The Sun is going to blow up one day. i will be gone by then so I am not worried. 

    Depending on karma I may go to higher realms and planets and enjoy or I may go to hell for a while and suffer.  My words, thought, and actions will determine my fate.  I hope I have been a good boy or it is big trouble for me. 

    I really do not worry about much I just have faith in God, try to love all living beings, and hope for the best.

    Best wishes.

    yes I believe in reincarnation just until the point of having gone through all your cycles you choose whether you want to come back here or go onto other worlds as a physical being, or stay in the world to which you've returned, which I hear is all different levels of the afterlife, like many mansions idea.
    reverse life not sure about why we'd do that but do believe we might want to come to earth because we are following someone we love and have a contract with them.
    like a karmic deal. I believe in dimensions, alternate realities, sideral dimensions, we can't see these worlds because they vibrate at a different rate of light speed and the physical body vibrates very slowly as it's density in a 3 dimensional world. however, a new world arises, the 4rth and 5th state of consciousness is upon us to enter. that is what enlightenment means. it's for everyone, at their own speed.

    Even Christ talked of reincarnation, though he didn't use that word.

    I've remembered thousands of past lives, mostly only as glimpses. But I've had a few profound memories overwhelm me.

    Let's start with the basics: we are basically immortal spirit wrapped in Homo sapiens flesh. (Genesis 1:26 + Gen 2:7; also see Gen 6:3).

    We fell from grace, fell into our own egos, blinding ourselves from the spiritual world, so that we became dependent upon physical processes (like human eyes) in order to perceive the world around us. In moments of spiritual clarity, I have seen without these human eyes.

    That great fall from grace required a rescue mission. That's why God created Homo sapiens -- the perfect form for temporary vessels of consciousness. God wants us to have every possible opportunity to escape, thus reincarnation. Look at Numbers 14:18 from the viewpoint of reincarnation. The sins of the fathers are visited only on the guilty! Look at that. Not innocent children. It's all there.

    As far as the Solar system ceasing to exist, that won't happen for likely trillions of years. The Earth, however, will likely be destroyed in about 5 billion. But life on Earth will be wiped out far sooner -- likely 1-2 billion. God will likely be leaving this world (as far as the rescue mission goes) in only a few years -- likely a thousand or less. In the thousand years of peace after Armageddon, we will have the choice to return to God or to stay. But those who stay won't enjoy the fruits of civilization. That bright and shining creation only came with the wisdom of God and religion (spirituality).

    Those left behind will resort to the physical laws of action-reaction -- wailing and gnashing (victim-perpetrator). Reincarnation will continue as long as there are bodies to be "worn." But the rescue mission will be gone. And when Earth is gone, the spirits might drift across the universe finding some other planet with life. Spending eternity as an amoeba or some furry or scaly creature without intelligent thought doesn't appeal to me.

    I personally hope we all make it to spiritual awakening. I've tasted that "wine" and it's the best of all possible things.
