Do you believe in reincarnation?

Postby Shazzam » Tue Aug 09, 2005 11:54 am

I have read many books on peoples opinions on reincarnation. I suppose it can take on many meanings to many people.

The real idea given to reincarnation is that you have the opportunity to live more than once on earth. So i'm not talking about eternal life in heaven. I'm saying do you believe that you can live more than once?

Yes. Reincarnation hasn't been proved like it's supposed to be, but it doesn't mean it does not possibly happen.

I know that some people including famous ones (Shirley Maclaine - actress) believe that they can remember the previous lives that they have lived. They even remember details about their names; families, where they lived etc.

It is actually quite facinating. If nothing else they are good fairytales. I personally don't believe in reincarnation, but I'm not put off by people that do. 8)

I believe all Dalai Lamas and some other monks were reincarnated. And I remember when the Titanic first came out, it was a big hit in the media and stuff. There were so many books and magazines talking about it. A lot of them even found out people who said that they were on the boat in their previous lives. They were hypnotized to tell the details on that boat or things that nobody knew. It was weird to consider yourself to believe it or not :lol: .

I agree illusion most religions don't consider reincarnation possible or ethical for that matter. But I think it pays to keep an open mind and still listen to people who do believe in it and have a story to tell. Some of the stories I have read about reincarnation and peoples experience of it (if you believe what they are saying) are really interesting. It is really similar to the stories that people tell about out of body experiences.

Perhaps this is your last life :)
Perhaps reincarnation happens but you have already lived all the rest of your lives, and this is your last one... :lol:

I don't believe in anything. How can a human being believe in something? it's stupid... we are not so clever... our mind is not able to comprehend reality at that level...
We must know things and not believe in things... When you believe in something, you are doing something stupid and that could carry negative consequences.

Should I mention suicide-terrorists?

Not believing in something is also believing something, and is also stupid, and could also carry negative consequences.

Are you boudhist? It's strange to read that opinion... why only Dalai Lamas and some other monks?

I said I believe; hence, I don't have to explain it to you if I don't feel like it. And right now, I do not feel like explaining anything to a disrespectful person. End of discussion.

The most profound truths are simple indeed, aren't they? I allowed myself some mockery, I hope you don't mind.

I want to believe in reicarnation. It is a comforting thought... that we are eternal students and our reason for being aside from existing is, to learn. I am Catholic (If I may be allowed to say so) so I don't have the luxury of believing this... but I've found the idea intriguing. One question comes to mind : Why wouldn't it be possible? Reicarnation, that is.

My mind is open to all ideas, if I haven't experienced it myself, I say everything is possible. In my religion there is no reincarnation mentioned, but that is not the reason to say it is surely not possible. I love the idea of reincarnation.

[color=red]Very good manner Lennye....¡¡¡¡¡.....!!!![/color]


[color=red]ABOUT REINCARNATION[/color]
A friend of mine practice a process of [color=red]regresion[/color], all was good. she knew that in one of her past lifes she was a poor woman that live in some town of india, and see a little pink house house. she see that her housband in that life was too bad with her and hit her a lot. for any strange reazon that man has the face of her father in her actual life.
some months after she got a strange sickness: PROTEUS, that doctor said was an old sicknes in extintion
after a year she trip to India to know SEI BABA or something that. a holly man that is considered a God in that country, she know the holly man and in the next day while she walking on the street she saw the pink house that she saw in the regression. and she feell the same sensation she has in that time.
Even when doctors said she was ok after the first time she got PROTEUS she continuou with the sicknes time by time and nobody could explain how she got that sicknes that was characteristic of people who live in places empty of people. I mean that sleep 20 in a room with not cleaning and very poor.
she said thhat the woman that pratise the regresion said that she got the sicknes in the proces of regretion.
well this is a version of reincarnation, it could be and it not could be. In every case I think life is beautifull and we should enjoy it.

When I think someone is rude or something is wrong with that person, I will ignore that person completely. I don't reply to that person's post as long as that person don't get in my way. In other words, that person doesn't exist to me.
When I have my negative feelings about someone, my debate won't be justified. To avoid doing that, I won't debate with anyone whom I have negative emotions to.

I hope you recover a good mood soon, read it from the other side, and tell me your point.

You can talk about the truth all you want, but you have to remember one thing, did I ask for it? Did I ask for your opinions about my family members? I was sharing my story and you attacked my loved one? How dare you....
