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.
Everybody is creating who and what they will become now. The next incarnation is an inheritance. That also means that it won't be you. You can only be you now.
I'm not sure we get to pick exactly, but I'd come back as a person. There's too much to learn and experience for just one lifetime. I know I'd like to be female again. I know my mate and I were together in at least one life before, so whatever form I take where we can be together again is fine with me. Well... with some exceptions, LOL.
Like everything else, this idea of re-incarnation is also full of myths and fictions. Charlatons make a great deal of money from it because man is by nature curious and wishes to know. The spiritual life is a very pure one, a sincere one and most importantly, an ordered one.
Re-incarnation is the process by which the soul evolves. It is not usual to go back or involute once more as it would serve no purpose. The soul learns a valued lesson, and moves on, each stage higher than the next. There have been exceptions in God's plans, but generally the natural order is to go forwards, not backwards.
The human form is the higher form and following this the tendency is for the divine life of man and nothing lower. Hope this helps.
That is impossible to answer right now, without a complete overview of what I've done in this life (and others). I guess 'the management' has it in hand though :-)
A buddhist ,monk who was far along the path and only had a few lives to go, and who understood the fundamental futility of doing anything for oneself (it leading to unhappiness, rather than the liberated feeling of being free and full of compassion for others), prayed for the blessing of a hard, hard life where his lessons could be finally fully learned. That's not what many would pray for, a very hard life!! On the other hand, an easy life can often lead to spiritual amnesia/laziness,
I believe in reincarnation and so did the Biblical Hebrews and they did for hundreds of years..but few do now
BUT.. humans reincarnate into humans and never into animals or anything else, only one or two religions believe they do.
Reincarnation answers a lot of questions people might have today
From everything I've ever read, if we're human now, we'll come back again as a human. However, if given a choice of what I'd like to come back as, I'd have to say, I'd want to reincarnate as a human again. I've done and learned a LOT in THIS lifetime, and I'd really love the chance to learn even more, and combine it with what I've already done and learned. I would love to have a chance to share what I know, and have experienced with the rest of the world, and hopefully HELP someone with what I've already done, and share the lessons I've already learned during my lifetime. It boils down to simply sharing what I've seen and what I've done. I hope to come back as a human female - and I hope I hold on to the lessons I've learned during my current lifetime when I come back for the next round. I think I'd be unstoppable then!
I like your spirit, good luck with all your endeavors in this life as well as the next.
The Soul is without gender, Kepitz. But generally when it takes a gender, it retains that gender unless of course there is an ordained reason for change. I learnt this from sitting at the feet of an illumined soul.
Well, the idea of reincarnating to other creatures is not held by all schools that believe in reincarnation. But if one must select then something higher than man is a good idea. "For we know as we teach that reincarnation is real" from the book "The formula for reincarnation: the rebirth equation"
I would like to be reincarnated as a Greek god, preferably Zeus.
I do believe in reincarnation. I would love to reincarnate as an avatar of Lord Visnu/God. Lord Visnu is also known as Lord Sri Krishna the speaker of the Bhagavad-Gita. Lord Visnu as Maha(Great) Visnu(God) breaths in and out universes, one of his breaths is 311 trillion 40 bullion years.
Lord Visnu creates all of the material nature with a glance and can never be defeated. I would like to reincarnate, not on this planet, but some where else as an avatar of the Supreme Lord and do an important assignment.

Noble aspirations. Still, your soul will not be happy. You have to do the work. If I gave you £500. every Friday, you will undoubtedly feel great. But a day will come when you will ask yourself why you are not working for it. Your soul is like this.
No my friend, if I did not have to work I would be happy. I define work as doing things you rather not do to gain money to survive. I like to have fun playing on the beach. That makes my soul happy .
We are perfect as we are, that's why we are who we are. You don't want to be like a Buddhist monk, they are selfish to only care about themselves and run away from living a normal life. They should know that ups and downs are part of life and accept it other then caring about that fake happy ness.
Your next life will depend on what you do in this one, that's how it works. You don't have to be a bird to fly, what are planes for?
Who determines this "perfection"? Why must we be perfect? What constitutes as living a normal life? What makes a Buddhist monk's life less valid than ours?
You need to stop judging things based on narrow-minded cultural assumptions!
Elusion, Awesome Body seems to be right. I have stayed in monasteries for months and I've met many monks. The less I say of them, the better!
I was asking mostly what people would reincarnate to... not a religious discussion on the matter...
I'd reincarnate to a more enlightened person...hopefully earlier in life then later so that I could understand and control my reality better.
You are no doubt a good man Darrell, but to the God-lover work is a veritable blessing. Wherever you work should be your heaven. Duty with detachment is the goal. Feel that you are an instrument in the Hands of Something Higher, and all will be well.
Even kings have problems, worrying whether they would be overthrown. I think I would rather be a pet-quality Chihuahua, hahaha.
I would like to reincarnate to a butterfly. This will make me fly around beautiful flowers drinking their nectar. Life would be so beautiful and filled with happiness.
Great question! I hope we don't reincarnate because my soul is tired and I don't think I could go through this again! But, if we have to I'm with you...something that could fly freely like a bird.

I promised my 90 year old landlord (who doesn't particularly believe in reincarnation) that in the next life, if we meet again, we'd have to go to Spain together. This is after he made a comment about how much he'd like to have seen Madrid. I think we always have a second chance to do the "one...
