I think we were put here in our meat suits to advance our spirits in a physical form. We've been here many times before. We will be here a few times again. We are supposed to help each other advance as well. Help each other obtain a higher state of being through love. Love is the only way to advance. We don't advance when we hate, when there are wars, when we hurt others. As the bible says, we are sheep. We are considered dumb on the spiritual scale. So our creator knows it takes time to move forward. Our creator loves us so much and knows we aren't perfect. Knows we make mistakes. But if we look at the bigger picture, our mistakes are so small, they really dont matter.
Our jobs here are simply to live, love, and care for everyone and everything. That's it. You don't have any other purpose. Stop making # so complicated for yourself.

We existed as souls before we were placed in these bodies and on this earth. This is a place of test to see who is better in action. We have freedom of choice, but we cannot create life, can we even bring a fly into existence? I agree there must be an infinite, everything has beginning and end, all of us shall taste death, but there must be a constant that placed us here...I looked at a lot of beliefs but only Islam had the proofs and explanations. Keep on searching... May u be guided to the truth...

If my form is mine for the inventing, then why do I look like my father and mother so much.
I like to think that we hold a charge in us as we live our lives that contains information, kind of like a capacitor in an electrical circuit and when we die this electricity return to the ground where all electricity goes. That is as far as I can imagine.
The soul is not physical, so how can it be explained?

We've but one life to live. When it ends, that's it for our unique personality. Thus this existence we're living here and now on Earth? We'd better make the best of it, because flesh, bone, Earth, sunlight and moonlight ... that's all there is, all there ever will be for each and every one of us. Inhale, exhale, eat, sleep and do it again, and again until the end. No heaven. No hell. No in-between. As our mothers fed us at birth, so shall we feed worms and other slithering things in death.
My savior is foresight, my succor quick reflexes. One day I will lower my guard and never again awaken or old age will take me in a dream of my youth. Now has already happened. Tomorrow never comes, and yesterday can never be re-experienced. Procrastination is the only sin; put off whatever for the rest of your life and it will still happen.
Something like that.
