    Tell me do you believe in Reincarnation or not ?

    I do not believe in reincarnation and I always ask myself a question. Which is if I am a human being and "MANKIND" suppose to be the highest of  all creatures on the earth, then why would I come back a rat? a worm, a cow or a snake? It baffles me, because if I die and I am to be re-incarnated I ought to come back SOMETHING BETTER an angel perhaps nothing more nothing less. Won't you like to come back something better?

    This question baffled me because I thought about the many mistakes that we didn't correct, or the many different types of successful people we may want to become.  But then I reasoned that if we do what we were suppose to do and live and love the lord with all our might, we just might come back as ourselves.  That would be the hardest thing to get over if you didn't love yourself.  So, I would want to have want I need in this life so I can remind myself that "do it right the first time" is a win-win situation.  Just my thoughts.

      Hey Patty you made me smile, but i believe as you said if we love the Lord with all our might etc. I surely do not want to come back to this sinful world. Won't heaven be better when we are in our celestial body smile who wanna be back here...lol

    I do not believe in reincarnation or any other afterlife.

    The assumption that human beings are the best animal, or the best nature has to offer, and somehow a rat HAS to be a step down doesn't seem right. There are many noble and even moral qualities to animals,

    To quote Ripley from Aliens, "I don't know which species is worse. You don't see them f--king each other over for a goddamn percentage"

    Also the idea with most forms of reincarnation is that you don't have a choice in what you come back as, it depends on how you live your life, act like a worm and maybe you'll be doomed to be one. Karma. From what I remember if you achieve enlightenment you exit the reincarnation cycle and become one with the Cosmos.

    By far reincarnation is the afterlife I would prefer. The only other one that sounds good is some versions of Mormonism that supposedly involve rising to demi-god status and getting your own planet to rule over. Reincarnation gets you out of the problem of being alive with the same continuity of consciousness for eternity, which would quickly turn most heavens into hell.

    I believe we come back as something better like you said. I don't believe a person can come back as a rat or a dog, or anything less than human.

    I believe in resurrection, not reincarnation.

    As a Christian I believed that Jesus raised Lazurus from the dead-he was dead for something like three days.  There were other examples in the Bible when a person was raised from the dead as well after being dead three days..  I also believe that Jesus was raised from the dead after three days.  As for reincarnation, I have not read of it anywhere in the Bible.  So I don't believe that we come back and live a different life.  If there was reincarnation I would like to come back as me, but a better me-correcting my mistakes, being a better student and wiser.

    I will first echo pattyfloren and say I agree this is a baffling question.  I have been intrigued by this concept for some time.....I've read it, thought about it, pondered it deeply but not real answers.....I will say this.  I want to live my life now in such a way that when I get to heaven I will hear "well done, good and faithful servant.  I want to be thought of as a good, kind, and always respecting people the way I think Jesus respected people when He walked the earth. 

    Now that said, if their is such a thing as reincarnation this is the way I want it to be when I return.  I want to be fifthy rich, beautiful, kind, generous, loving, filled with peace, joy, respect for all.  I want to be surrounded by mercy, grace, favor, and I want my light to shine so bright it  beams out and surrounds those that are close.  I want to offer hope and healing. I want to be able to change fear into understand. 

    I want to be SOOOOOOO much better than I am right now.

      Hey Dee Good morning so definitely this stamps out being a cow or a rat right? because a cow or a rat or snake cannot do any of the things that you will like to be if you were to be re-incarnated. Thanks much for coming by. Love your answer smile

    Hi LadyFiddler:
    I really do not believe in reincarnation...but I DO believe in an after life. 

    I am a Christian, and I do believe in the Virgin Mary, that Jesus was born into the world to save us from sin.  If not for my belief in God, I could not function. 

    Too many prayers and miracles have happened in my life, as well as numerous coincidences, which I have recorded in my journals.
    I even created a non-credit course titled "The Mystery Of Coincidences" and taught it at our community college which people loved.

    I once heard a woman say regarding what happens after death: "No one knows for sure.  It is an eternal mystery."  That being said, I have read numerous material written by people who have died and returned to share what they have seen during those moments.  The most recent book is about Todd Burpo, a little boy who died and saw heaven. title: "Heaven Is For Real".   Tremendous testimony...then I saw the movie which was spectacular.  Incredible story,

    I just know that if it is written in the Bible, it is true.  And there is nothing that convinces me that there is reincarnation. 

    This is a great question.  Blessings, Sparklea smile

      Well thank you Sparklea GREAT answer, yes i have the book with Todd Burpo i never completed it but i guess its because i believe in life after death. So i did not have to read out the book to believe Todd's experience.

    No, I don't "believe" in reincarnation, I "know" it.

    I've incarnated hundreds of times as a human. The object was not to come back as some "thing" better, but as someone better.

    What I've learned recently in Kabbalah seems to change my perspective a bit -- that each incarnation has helped to increase ego (the source of all evil) for the purpose of bringing us closer to the burning need for something better. Same end result -- full awakened spirit -- but the details are different from my earlier understanding. And this makes more sense than anything I've discovered yet.

    What's interesting is that Kabbalists wrote the Bible in code. So, most interpretations have been bogus. What a breakthrough that is.

    No, but life would be boring if everybody believed in the same thing. Personally, I think one life is enough. It has its share of drama, pain, gain, sadness, grief, happiness, calmness, contentment, and all other extremes of positive and negative in a lifetime. Do I wanna do it again? No. I want something much better after I die.

    Interestingly enough, your rationale is quite beautiful. Makes sense to evolve, doesn't it?

    Yoga philosophy speaks of the mineral life: rocks; the plant life; the animal life and the human life. Each stage higher than the next. Sri Chinmoy teaches that it is unusual to go back or even to change sex. The Soul remembers its experiences and returns to continue from where it left of, this is the usual pattern.

    Re-incarnation exists for the growth and development of the Soul. We are full of desires, and we cannot fulfil them all in one lifetime, and so the Divine, in its mercy, allows us to do this. Life's goal is happiness, or if you like, the merging of the individual Soul  with the Supreme Soul which is God itself. You may wish to read the book Death and Re-incarnation by Sri Chinmoy, available free on the internet.

    Seek out books by enlightened Souls, and not that of the intellectual and curious mind. There are many in life and also here on Hub Pages. Write to me if you wish to chat: ceeccil@hotmail.com. Much peace.

      Mana thanks for your visit i will be immortal when i die living with my saviour in heaven. I have nothing to come back here to finish . It is appointed unto man once to die and after death is the judgement . Re-incarnation is Absurd ....as an animal
