Reincarnation... Do you believe? What were you?

Postby Cat Q » Tue Apr 27, 2004 4:55 pm

hiya

Now this is a weird one, I know, but sometimes I can be a bit cooky :roll: :D , so here goes...

I belive in reincarnation, and slightly belive in Buddism, this is were we work our way up from life, from an organism to say a rat then a dog then a human etc.

In other words, if you did good in one life you`ll asend the food chain, if not you live as that creature again or go down a peg.....

But, back to the topic....

Do you think you have lived before? And if so what or who were u?

No silly make belive stuff please... (How do you spell belive anyway??)

And what or who would you like to be ... ie a soldier, pop star... Cat, wolf etc

I'm sure Siddharta Gutama would be delighted to hear that you quite believe in his religion.

I don't believe in reincarnation. It's propaganda to make you confrom to religion in my opinion
Last night I dreamt that somebody loved me.

Well I`ll start things off, being a believer and all! :D


I Think this is only my second turn as being a human,
cause in my first human life I wasnt a very nice person, I was a man, a soldier in the second world war, but I was a German, I died during the conflict in the trenches, Im sure I was in the infrantry.

It`s strange, I Know, But Ive felt like I`ve known this all of my present life, Hard to explain how I think like I do, But I JUST KNOW....


As for animals, Im sure Ive been a Cat MORE than once, I am Obbsessed with cats, always have been. Although I think I could have been somewhat a more Unworthy animal like a cow or goat.


Please No "Mickey taking"...

I do believe in reincarnation but I don't really think it's like a chain, so if we did something good we would become something better or if we did something bad we would become something like an insect or goat etc.

I'm different to you Cat Q, I can't remember at all what I might have been, I think that everyone has been something before just you can't remeber at all....except for the odd person that does have some recollection of it.

I'm not sure whether I believe in it although I do believe there is something after life. Something that we can't understand until we are there. I don't think I've lived before but when we die I don't think that that is the end.
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.

I'm another non-believer. I think that all of these beliefs evolve out of our need to believe something. The human mind is a very powerful thing!

I don't know if i belive but....
I belive if i did have a past life i was a taxi driver who either died of smoking or someone close to me did.
I think that because for some reason i seem to know my way every where, i never take a wrong turning or anything, anf i absolutly hate people smoking with a great passion and i have no idea why!!

i believe in it, its strange i just remember some kind of past lives, not that i can remember alot but i used to freak my teachers at school out with workbooks full of stories about WW2 with alot of detail and even asked my parents if they wtrote them, wierd huh? also remember other past lives from alot further back. i dont believe in the buddist view that theres some kind of order to it. i purely tghink that its a case of human sole recycling of some sort... when someone dies their soul is taken over in another persons body and a small bit of their history is taken with it. im a catholic so im not meant to believe that you get reincarnated, but i do.

I don't believe in reincarnation. I take my belief from the Bible..."It is appointed unto man once to die, and after this, the judgment."

The wait for that perfect someone may be long and painful, but the payoff lasts even longer, and is the most painless thing in the world.

yeah Llisa thats what im meant to believe, i go to church and stuff and believe in god i just dont believe that, its a comfort thing almost sometimes with me, apart from having felt it. id rather think someone i loved who dies is still on earth in someone elses body than in heaven.

I personally would rather think of those I love in heaven with my Saviour then down here on this wretched earth.

As an atheist i dont believe in heaven or reincarnation(well not in the normal form as u'll see) what i believe is that we are made of matter and energy and when the matter part dies the energy carrys on as energy cant die.

The matter gets used again aswell because when this planet and sun go boom the matter will fly through the galaxy and form new stars and planets and life which i guess is a form of reincarnation.

We came from the stars and we go back to the stars

I know this post is kinda weird, :o
and in some ways I think It may be just the mind playing tricks,
but if the feeling is so strong that you just KNOW, Must be SOMETHING to it? :-?

About the trench, I onestly don`t remember much, it`s more of a feeling.

(I could just be going crazy though) But I seem NOT to be the only one.... :D
