What is Reincarnation?Reincarnation is the belief that the soul survives physical death, and is reborn into a new physical life, the passing of the soul from one body to the next. Our souls never really die, we merely change our physical form, forgetting who we once were. Why do we do this? Our souls are striving for perfection, whether we consciously realize it or not. We are born again and again to confront and perfect our Karma. To know the laws of action and reaction so instinctively and purely, that we never transgress them, is true enlightenement. At tha point, our souls are free of Karma, and free to join with "The One" in a state of Nirvana.
Who Believes in Reincarnation?Reincarnation is a belief with a long and varied history. In modern times, the Eastern religions of Buddhism and Hinduism are often thought of as the source of this belief, but the ancient Egyptians and Greeks, native North and South Americans, and the Aboriginal peoples of Australia also traditionally hold this belief.
Here is a brief list of some famous and influential individuals who have held this belief-
"The Soul is older than body. Souls are continuously born over again into this life."
"Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting, The soul that rises with us, our life's star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar."
"A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me."
The ancient mathmetician Pythagoras claimed to have remembered his reincarations.
Plotinus, in "The Descent of the Soul", claimed to have knowledge of the Soul and its origin.
Salvador Dali claimed to vividly remembered his past life as St. John of the Cross.
We are Not our BodyThe concept of reincarnation is easier to grasp if we understand that we are not our bodies, but our souls. The unenlightened and untrained mind blindly and habitually identifies with the physical body. In fact, our true nature is pure awareness. We cannot be the observer (awareness) of an object (the body) and also be that object. Our true nature is awareness itself.
The soul is forever evolving, and ach soul is without beginning or end. Our individual souls have evolved through one celled organisms, plants, animals, and the human form. Most of us have been humans many times. With each lifetime, we learn, growing closer to the state of soul perfection!
