Reincarnation: do you believe in it?

I do, but I have a different take on it than the usual one where souls are reincarnated because of some kind of karmic debt. I believe souls reincarnate for experiences. That we all determine what kind of experience we want to have ahead of time in order to grow as spiritual beings. For instance, say my soul wants to experience all of the joys and woes of wealth. So I incarnate as a child born into wealth and during that childhood and adulthood, I experience wonderful times as well as tragic losses all due to wealth. Or I want to experience poverty or illness, or the kindness of strangers, etc. All of this is so that my soul can grow spiritually. And I also believe that once the soul has gained all of the experiences out there, that they stop reincarnating. What they do next though? I have no idea yet.

I don’t believe in “good” karma and “bad” karma either. I believe that karma is the loss or inability to know and understand love. Karma just IS, not good, bad or neutral. We are all born with love attached to us, but for whatever reason, some of us lose it or it gets diminished to near nothingness. And I don’t think anyone has karmic debt. It does not reincarnate with them. They live either with Karma or with Dharma, again all about experiences. Dharma, for me, is living a life with love still attached. So when someone says they are fulfilling their Dharma, they are living a loving, caring, compassionate life filled with their passions.

This is why I get disturbed when people say things like, well if Karma exists how do people like Hitler etc walk this Earth without consequences? Well, Karma does exist and they ARE living a Karmic life. What they are *not* living is a Dharmic life.

I have no idea where I came up with my concepts of Reincarnation, Karma and Dharma. I don’t believe they are the norms taught by the Eastern Philosophies.  They do, however, resonate with my soul.

(and because I just have to… for your listening pleasure… Culture Club!)
