  1. Do you believe in reincarnation? Do you think that we can be reborn as someone or even something else?

    not really. I think we just die and our energy is absorbed through the earth. I guess its a form of reliving, except that you aren't conscious and your worth actually helps something :D

    who knows... but I like the idea of having lived many lives... And I think I have many more ahead, I seriously doubt I can reach moksha in this lifetime

    I think reincarnation occurs as long as we believe it will, and when we wake up and realize that we don't have to anymore, than it stops :) Same with out of body experiences, if you believe something into existence, than it comes true.

    If I believe that I am a Billionaire, will I wake up tomorrow really rich? - No, seriously, I think that because everything in the universe is connected to everything else, we are not actually separate individuals like we usually think we are, but in fact the universe is a single unified living organism. Individuals are born and die, but they are only temporary bits of the whole. Like skin cells in humans which are lost and regenerated every day. However, what we truly are, which is the whole living system, continues for ever and is everywhere. Infinite and eternal. 'God' in a word. So, I believe that we are continually reborn in different manifestations of the same thing. I do not believe that this only happens on a one out-one in basis, like a full club. ie. when I die, another life is born specifically to replace me, or that a previous incarnation is mine alone and no-one elses. I mean I do not believe that the individual identity/memory is carried from one life, specifically only to one other life. I am a reincarnation of every other life on the planet before me and together, we are all parts of the whole. I don't think we come back after death as the same person in another body and I think that is the popular understanding of reincarnation. What I do think though, is this life is a temporary Illusion and really, we live forever so there should be no fear of death and we should love every other living thing as if it were ourselves, because actually, it is

    Snakeeyes - For belief to work you've got to let go of all your disbelief. That's a gigantic step for most people because they've been bred into a world that teaches submissiveness to authority and that they don't have any real power at all.

    If you preach and believe in powerlessness than you will be powerless.

    But if you believe that you have the ability to make your own world YOUR way, than you truly can. Just gotta let go of those beliefs that are holding you back.

    A quote attributed to Oscar Wilde seems relevant here:

    "Everybody has to believe in something, and I believe I'll have another beer,"

    When I die, I become the dirt in the ground, then the grass, then the birds, then the fox, and so on until I return to the ground again. I attribute too much Daniel Quinn to this belief.
