Day 285 (Two-Hundred & Eighty-Five) of 365 days

Birth is not a beginning; death is not an end. There is existence without limitation; there is continuity without a starting point. Existence without limitation is Space. Continuity without a starting point is Time. There is birth, there is death, there is issuing forth, there is entering in." – Chuang Tzu

Reincarnation is the idea that once we die, we will come back to this earth in another form. We may still be humans, we could be animals, but somehow we will come back as a form of life on the earth. Abiding by this view, we would be saying that we are in a cycle. We will be born, live, and die, and then we will be reborn. There is no afterlife; there is only death and rebirth. When thinking of the knowledge that we gain from reincarnation, we may have the ability to die and come back. However, nobody in this life knows a past life. Therefore, the theory that reincarnation gives us special knowledge of life has yet to be proven.

What we look like and how we act are also based on our ability to know reincarnation. Perhaps we will have a harder time in life if we have been 'bad' in another life, or perhaps we will have physical disabilities. This is unknown, and sometimes we do not know why life is unfair and why bad things happen to good people. Reincarnation may explain this and some of life’s greatest mysteries.

In my opinion, an action can’t lack a cause. I still have to agree with Einstein: for every action, there is an equal or opposite reaction. However, sometimes things happen and we just don’t know why they happen. Especially with humans, sometimes people act without a cause. I do believe that if you thought hard enough that you could find actions without a cause, but for the most part all of our actions are based on some form that would define a cause.

Even after listening to a lot of stories from my Grandparents about those who reincarnated I still have a biased feeling on whether it’s true or not. Do you also believe in Reincarnation
