Just curious? What does the song Karma Chameleon have to do with being reincarnated? Post a comment if you know the connection, please. I think I will have trouble commenting on this issue. If my post sounds like I am confused and without direction, it is because I am.
I want to. It’s not a part of my religion, but it would be more pleasant than they scientific void of life. My grandmothers believed in an afterlife. One grandmother also believed in ghosts. She believed she saw the image of my grandfather after he died. It was comforting to her so no one argued the issue with her. I think most ghosts are born of fatigue rather than spiritual or paranormal activity.
I would like to understand what happens to the soul after death. Everlasting life? Where? I’ve investigated and researched this subject trying to understand, to conceive what must be truth, but I am never convinced. My logic argues with my faith. We die. Then nothing. That is what the science community claims. We go into sleep and never wake. Never. I think that is the word I have trouble with. Like when I consider the universe being infinite. It can’t be, there must be an end, but if one should find an end, then what is on the other side of that wall? Something must be, yes?
Death is like this for me. How can we go into a sleep, even one that is dreamless as when put under for surgery, and never wake? If this is truth, what happens to the consciousness, that awareness that we exist? Where does it go? It is incomprehensible to me. Mostly because I cannot understand the logic of “never” and “nothingness.” There must be something.
I want to believe in reincarnation because it would defuse the reality that doesn’t seem like it should be real. On the other hand, if reincarnation does happen, what good is it if we cannot remember the lessons of our past life? Are we not doomed to make the same mistakes over an again if we cannot take our lessons with us?
