This is my very FIRST thread and I'm excited to finally participate on here. I'm more of an asker than answerer. This thread isn't to argue whether
reincarnation exists or not or whether or not there is an afterlife. I'm just asking for opinions on why you think it may exist or not.
Anyways, the thought of what happens after we die has been on my mind for the past week now. I think about it non-stop and it has given me a headache
thinking about it so much. After much research of hearing people's opinions on NDE (Near death experiences), paranormal activities, etc. I believe
that there is something more than this life. I believe that the conscious does exist after our bodies are gone.
Many people who have had NDE experience peace, love, being greeted by deceased relatives, and the bright light. A couple of stories I have heard that
are very unexplainable by science. I'm confident in my faith that this is true, BUT I am not sure about reincarnation.
Why am I confused about reincarnation? Well, I read up on reincarnation and hear that we go through many life times (if we choose) until you reach
enlightenment. BUT after you've reached enlightenment then where do you go? Do you forget all the ones you love in the past?
Also, with reincarnation, I believe there are so many other planets with life out there besides earth. What makes people so sure it's just earth that
we reincarnate into a human?
I hate the thought of reincarnation honestly. I hate the thought of starting all over again, not remembering anything, and the possible idea of my
husband turning into my brother in the next life LOL since some people believe those you love cycle within you.
If reincarnation DOES NOT exist, I can't imagine what we do for all eternity. If energy is neither created or destroyed then where did I come from.
Sorry for all the questions! It's been bottling up for the past week since I've been here and I couldn't wait to ask!!
