Pure energy does not die, it is recycled. This is my feelings about reincarnation. I do not necessarily believe we will inhabit another human body
every time we ascend, but rather our soul has many different forms it has inhabited. The nature of energy is very difficult to comprehend for most.
Where did our soul come from and where is it going has been a philosophical dilemma for ages. Any opinion is subjective, based on our belief
structure/religious upbringing. There can only be one truth though. Semantics usually play a large part in how we word things individually, but
essentially say the same thing. All religions/spiritual actions derived from the same source, just worded differently. For instance,
praying/meditation are essentially the same thing just worded differently. So, death could be another word for reincarnation, also. God/higher power
= same thing. I could give many examples but I think the point has been made.
Either way, we do exist in some form and it is for us to decide why, but we still have a responsibility to our fellow souls to be the best we can be,
do not let fear control you, let LOVE guide you.
I have, also, decided to share some quotes from another source, read and enjoy:
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered “Man…. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being
that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
“I have been born more times than anybody except Krishna.” Mark Twain.
“The soul comes from without into the human body, as into a temporary abode, and it goes out of it anew it passes into other habitations, for the
soul is immortal.” “It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but only retire a little from sight and afterwards
return again. Nothing is dead; men feign themselves dead, and endure mock funerals… and there they stand looking out of the window, sound and well,
in some strange new disguise.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
“He saw all these forms and faces in a thousand relationships become newly born. Each one was mortal, a passionate, painful example of all that is
transitory. Yet none of them died, they only changed, were always reborn, continually had a new face: only time stood between one face and another.”
Herman Hesse, Siddhartha
These were just a sample of the ones I liked, but there are others if you chose to follow.
