do you believe in heaven and hell? do you believe in reincarnation? how did you come upon your beliefs?.. do you think that you are met by other family and loved ones who have also passed over or do you think that our souls choose lives to be reborn to "learn"?? what happens to you?

It's so hard to talk to others about religion and politics; a lot of people won't even attempt it because they fear the judgement of others, they care way too much how others will think of them, unless of course they agree with your views. I gave up worrying about what others thought of me many years ago. I try to say what I think or believe and if they don't like it and don't want to be my friend, then... I don't believe in reincarnation. I believe that once you die, you either go to heaven or hell. I hate the idea of hell as everyone does, but I know it's there, somewhere. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior years ago; haven't been living like it for a long while and I know He's disappointed in me but I'm trying to find my way back. I want to be able to sit and talk to Jesus and the Father when I die; I also feel that if we want to we'll be able to talk with our loved ones who have gone before us as well. It is based on faith alone. Sorry, but that's just how it goes. If it wasn't, then why would you have to try to be a good person, etc. I believe in miracles as well. My son CJ (with Autism) and my other children are miracles. When an actual miracle happens, say a healing of body, etc., there's your proof that there's actually a loving God. The Bible talks about, blessed are those that have not seen but yet believe.

I personally believe in reincarnation. If energy cannot be created nor destroyed, our bodily energy must go somewhere. I believe we continue to be reborn to learn new life lessons. My parents think I am crazy and my brothers pray for me! My whole family is Christian and just don't get me! LOL
