Because it's a lie! It's [ reincarnation ] just another sales pitch, a set-up, for the coming of the NEW AGE religion. There are many of them.
People, including myself, have bought into this crap because they've heard it so much, but none of us really understand the occult origins of this stuff.
"The Secret" is another NEW AGE piece of garbage that sells lucifer dressed up / disguised as "the way things are" to unsuspecting gullible and uninformed regular folks to snare them in a "feel good" trap.
Now....here's the kicker?
If people would want to better ourselves...it stands to reason, that we would learn from our mistakes, if we can RECALL them (past lives), then use these experiences as a base-line to further better ourselves.

Personally - and I am used to getting blasted over this one (although, it must be said, I am yet to hear a convincing argument against it) - I find it somewhat disturbing that this idea was so widespread in a culture - India - that had (partially still has) a caste system. In other words, a culture where there was no way out of your alloted "station in life" other than death - and, hopefully, rebirth in a more kindly environment...
