I really enjoyed this discussion, as reincarnation and pre-planned lives has been a topic of interest to me lately. What is the soul? I don't know
if the soul is a spirit, a separate being that inhabits human bodies or "earthsuites", or is the soul just energy?
The idea of reincarnation is romantic and comforting to me. It's soothing to think you don't have just one life to figure everything out, and it
would make death easier to accept if you thought you'd be coming right back. Isn't that what the concept of heaven does too though? Makes your own
death and the death of loved ones easier to accept when you believe you will all be united again. Is that all any ideas of the after life is? The
human mind making grief easier? I don't like that nor do I want to believe it, but I guess it is a possibility.
I never considered the idea of good vs bad being a human concept and not something real, I guess it really is an objective concept. When it comes to
pre-planned lives, is that just something for human souls? Are human souls always human souls? This morning I woke up and with my first step I
stepped on an insect on my kitchen floor and killed it. Would that be evil or good? To me, it's no big deal, we step on bugs all the time, but to
the bug, that was the bug's life, boom, gone, just outta pure dumb luck of me being groggy and walking to the coffee pot. What was a very
insignificant event to me was most significant to the bug. Would it have agreed to come to this existence just to be stepped on? What about the cows
who become Big Macs?
I guess I'm leaning towards if reincarnation and pre-planning is real, it affects human souls only and a human soul is always a human soul. Earlier
in the thread someone had posted that deja vu was a sort of reminder for us about our previous lives, I like that idea. Here's the thing with me
though, I don't think I've ever had deja vu in an important moment, at least not that I can recall right now. My deja Vu experiences usually are me
doing mundane tasks such as being at the store, and my deja vu experiences usually involve music either on the radio or playing wherever I am.
Thanks for this thread and allowing me to post my thoughts here, I don't really know what's real or what isn't real. I find comfort in the idea of
reincarnation and I like to mix it with a side of believing in God and Jesus, so that's what I'm going to do, that's what gets me by.
