If you do how does it work for you.. can we reincarnate as trees or bugs in your version or just humans, also if there is reincarnation what do you think of new souls? Can one soul represent more than one body?

I've come across a lot of different paths on my spiritual journey, and I am actually surprised at how few think that reincarnation is a possibility, even though common sense (at least from my perspective) would suggest that not only is it a possibility-- it is a probability. Many religions consider life to be a test, and a learning experience. I agree with those religions, and if you picture the concept of time, it is readily apparent that there is very little you can learn from one life, since it is less than a mere blink of the cosmic eye. To me, it makes far more sense that we would repeat life, again and again as we spiritually progress. When we are ready, it makes sense that we will move on to the next plane of existence and continue to progress there as well until we are ready to move on yet again from that place. I just cannot subscribe to the medievel view that there is a Heaven or a Hell awaiting us after this life. That notion would make this life, G-d, Heaven and Hell seem so very shallow, meaningless and altogether boring. So yes, I do believe in reincarnation. It seems the only logical choice. Again I ask, just how much can you learn in one life? There is so much to be experienced, so many people to meet, situations to encounter, jobs to perform and roles to play. Howhigh, what are you thoughts?

I agree and that in the past religious figures/prophets were extremely gifted or souls that were ready to pass. I share your thoughts i'm also surprised on how many people think its a possibility.. on the other hand i think its someone everyone has thought about and maybe if we were to help them with their vocabulary they would agree with us. SO much in life and learning is purely vocabulary and the ability to articulate and communicate with people.

I don't believe in the teaching of reincarnation though i must admit it is quite an exciting faith at all. Can you just imagine yourself being born again as elephant or an eagle. Maybe if you are an illegal logger, you will be back as a tree. If you are destroying the sea, you could be back as an endangered fish. There are so many possibilities. However, I don't think of it as true.

No, I don't believe in reincarnation - I believe that once we die it's all over.

I believe that everyone we come in contact with was "blue-printed" by us before we incarnated. I think we set up little "flags" through out our life to "remind" us that we are on the right path. When we get that extra "rush" of familiarity it is probably someone with whom we have indeed incarnated with before or set up to meet or encounter at that specific time. Just be grateful that it is a positive experience....so far They can also be negative. But they always occur as a reminder and as a learning tool for our development.

There is no such thing as reincarnation. The Bible does not teach anything about it. When we die, our bodies die, but our souls live on forever either in Heaven or in hell. Jesus Christ is the only way we can be saved from the eternal fires of hell. Give your life to Jesus, read the Bible and learn the Truth...God's Truth! God is totally awesome!! God bless.
