    nah, man, only one soul in existance, only one body in existence. We are all one, changing forms eternally.

    Sebbi, I know I seem confident, almost completely positive infact when the truth is... I don't know. None of us do. My mom gets really frustrated by my redundance and conviction but I'm not easily persuaded. My beliefs greatly coincide with the teachings of A Course in Miracles and Disappearance of the Universe. Something about them strikes a chord inside me as if I already knew everything they were teaching but at the deepest of my subconsious. But, just because I insist upon it, it certainly doesn't make it so! For all I know the rapture might be coming (in which case, I'm in deep caca poo trouble). Its funny though, I am open minded enough to listen to anybody's beliefs free of judgement but confident enough in my own to not be swayed because it happens to make the most sense to me at this moment in time.
    I don't want to come across as condescending and pompous, I am just suggesting a couple possibilities out of limitless possibilities!

    Moonlight - you didn't come across as condescending to me.

    I think a certain stubbornness is a good thing. When it comes to many esoteric believes I like to play devils advocate.

    I used to be a firm believer in reincarnation but then I became less and less sure about the permanence of the soul. It just seemed a ridiculous thing when, having changed so much, so fast there was little I could pinpoint as being permanent. And gradually I became more and more of the opinion that reincarnation is a metaphor.

    Blessings

    Your brain is only a filter for your true consiousness, your body is ment only to sustain it. As long as you are in a human body you will be bound to mental thought(mind) and can only see the world as it is through meditation or psychadellics. The physical world is only an illusion, every mind in the universe is part of a greater existence(soul). We all share one soul and one existence. It'is like a hairbrush with the bristles underwater, as long as you can see only what's underwater, you can't see all the bristles are part of a bigger whole. We all share one soul which is divided into minds which are housed by a body. This is how psychics read minds, people share dreams and visions, and how psychadellics work (by decreasing blood sugar to the brain in the case of lsd-25 and mescalin, you can shut down the filter.). Meditation and hallucinogens can temporarily alter the mind to see reality, if you use them right.

    The one body thing is similar to ourselves. We are made of billions of cells, but its all just one being, some are alive, and some are non alive like our hair, and fingernails and teeth.

    The same thing with people/animals/plants and all life and even non life like rocks. We are the cells of the earth and its just one organism. Very much alive.

    The body is the physical, the first level of matter-energy.
    The mind is where the mental meets the physical, where intelligence energy is generated.
    The soul is where the spiritual meets the mental, where spirit energy, our immortal side, is developed.....

    how is it possible to know where the body leaves off and something else begins? Hold up your hand and what do you see? A bunch of coloured points. The whole field of vision is nothing but coloured points. What is the difference between the coloured points you call your hand and the other coloured points you see? The body is an illusion.
