What is Reincarnation?
Reincarnation is the concept that souls are continuously reborn in different bodies at different times and places. Many belief systems around the world embrace reincarnation, including Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism, and a variety of New Age religions. Each religion professes different beliefs about the cause and purpose of reincarnation, but some facts remain consistent. In most every case, reincarnation is a natural and very important part of the development of a soul; it is the process of struggling against some negative force, such as desire or karma, toward a higher state of being; and it applies to all human beings, if not all living creatures.
How many people believe in reincarnation?
It is impossible to know precisely, but millions of people worldwide identify themselves with belief systems in which reincarnation plays a part. This includes over 300 million Buddhists, 800 million Hindus, at least one million adherents of New Age religions, and several million others, as well as many whose beliefs are held privately. Overall, it is reasonable to estimate that about a quarter of the world’s population believes in reincarnation in some form.
Does everyone just keep reincarnating forever?
Reincarnation does come to an end. Virtually all belief systems associated with reincarnation assert that the purpose of reincarnation is growth and spiritual development, culminating in a higher state of being beyond the cycle of reincarnation. Details vary, but it is believed this state is completely different and separate from reincarnation and its sufferings. Therefore, reincarnation does not continue forever – only until the soul reaches a certain level of enlightenment, impossible to describe or understand fully in earthly terms.
My 1st question.
From where soul comes? Especially a new 1st timer.
If it needs to learn lessons then is it
blank at birth or already messed up?
if blank then does coming to earth messes it?
Then why to send a pure soul away
from the source to just mess it 1st and
then give as much time to unmess?
Provided it doesnt get more messed in
one way while learning another. So the only way to make every soul
unmessed is to make earth an ideal
place with no mess.
i believe there has to be a reason we exist. i am not sure how or why. maybe it is to achieve a higher existence. i don't know. seems to be enough people that do believe in it. not sure what form i think is right.
How about Reincarnation in the bible?
Can O worms = Open
I would deduce that souls on a journey to advance would choose to be born into situations that would help them work through the specific issues they chose to work on in that particular life experience.
That may be hard to understand but I can’t think of another way to phrase it.
Collective unconscious is a term of analytical psychology, coined by Carl Jung. It is proposed to be a part of the unconscious mind, expressed in humanity and all life forms with nervous systems, and describes how the structure of the psyche autonomously organizes experience. Jung distinguished the collective unconscious from the personal unconscious, in that the personal unconscious is a personal reservoir of experience unique to each individual, while the collective unconscious collects and organizes those personal experiences in a similar way with each member of a particular species.
The real question for me is, will we all die and reincarnate now that Earth is anchored higher, or will our bodies survive the metamorphosis of 3D to 5D. And THAT is quite the question because its never been done before. An experiment of divine will, I suppose.
Every ONE of the babies I have met and worked with (I'd venture to say approaching 100) were so unique, so expressive in their "responses" to the "new" physical reality around them.....
