Ok, first of all I just want to say that this thread is mainly for people who believe in reincarnation or can at least entertain the possibility of
it. I'm not really trying to push a specific view point on people or whatever, so I'd hope that others can respect that I don't want the same done
Basically, I'm just really, really super curious about everything and how things came to be and the bigger picture in life and existence lol, so
don't shoot me for having an inquiring mind alright!
So... With that out of the way, I shall now start
Ok, so I think about a lot of things, and obviously this is one of those things I think about. I guess I should start with what I believe. Well... I
believe that everybody has a soul. I believe it's who you really are and that when you die, you live on, just not inside a physical body, because I
believe the body is just a vehicle to experience. I also believe in reincarnation. I believe the purpose of life is to experience and to learn. For
what end result though, I'm still thinking about. My guess used to be that eventually you can experience and learn enough and depending on your final
conclusion, you'll either end up in heaven or hell. Now I'm thinking that you just continue living and experiencing again and again all throughout
this magnificent multiverse and beyond. I truly believe everything is never-ending, which I admit is actually pretty scary to entertain and honestly
does my head in lol. But this is all what I believe at this point in time.
Ooh, I should also add (although it should be pretty obvious
) that I believe in love whether you're heterosexual, bisexual, homosexual, asexual,
polysexual or pansexual, whatever. I just believe in love because in the end we're energy/souls and sex (biological) doesn't matter when you're
energy, you just are who you are
. The only thing that matters, are your experiences and what you've learned and then who you are.
So anyway, with all that said, I'm wondering if maybe the gender (not sex) and sexuality we were in our last life can have any effect on what gender
and sexuality we have in this life? Maybe before we came to this Earth, some people chose to experience what it would be like to have certain
experiences with different sexualities or genders in this life, you know kinda like be able to walk in anothers shoes and experience life from someone
else's point of view, or just to be able to experience for experiences' sake or to learn.
But also what if also some people before they came here, didn't choose which gender and sexuality they would be, but they just are that way? Like, as
a soul they just are that way, you know? They just are
attracted to women or men etc. or certain genders that other souls have, and it doesn't
matter which sex these souls get born into because as person/being/soul they just are that way. And then when they reincarnate here, that just gets
transferred to their body, maybe like an imprint or something?
Maybe after all their reincarnations here, they like certain traits of one sex, or gender? I think sexuality might be just another way to explore, not
only ourselves and what it means to us, brings out in us and makes us feel/experience, but also to explore existence. Like I said I believe we're all
here to learn and experience, why wouldn't sexuality be apart of that?
I think it's obvious that sex, as in having sex, is more than just a tool for reproduction. I think it serves multiple purposes. For reproduction
obviously, but also (and maybe mainly?) as a way to connect with others. To make a connection not just spiritually, but also physically. Another way
to explore ourselves (souls) and our lives, our world, our existence?
I don't want offend anybody, but maybe this could also help in understanding the God of the Bible a small bit. Like I said, I don't want to offend
anybody, but I don't think that the God of the Bible is the only God. I think He's one of many to be honest. But maybe that explains why He is a He
and doesn't refer to Himself as a She. Maybe the God of the Bible has a specific gender because that's what He feels Himself to be. I always thought
that if God were real, then the real God wouldn't be a He or a She but just be, because I believed that spirit or soul didn't have gender. But now,
obviously, I'm thinking otherwise lol
Maybe He also realised He was asexual (not sure about what would be the proper term) or something/whatever and didn't want to have a mate or soul
partner (?). But then supposedly His Church is His Bride so I don't know lol
. There are lots of other Gods who do have partners, most of the
time they're opposite sexes or genders or whatever. I hope you get my drift? Anyway, Gods obviously have different traits and sexualities, genders
and sexes. Maybe it's not because of us humans that Gods have human traits, but maybe because the Gods once used to be human?
Anyway, I think I'm getting off track, but I hope someone understands what I'm essentially trying to say? Lol, I could understand if you don't
understand or you disagree, that's ok just ignore me and go look at another thread, just don't get all negative on me though ok! Hehe
Also, I did a search here not long ago to see if anyone else has been thinking about this too and found
by THEQUANTUMSHAMAN, which has some of the things I've been talking
about. There are also a few others who touch on it a bit too.

Well, that's it for now I'm tired lol. Hope you at least enjoyed it and were entertained, even if you didn't understand what I was trying to say
