Reincarnate This

I don’t believe in reincarnation. Let me amend that. I don’t believe I understand reincarnation. But, if I did, it would explain my life as I am experiencing it now.

What I can make of it is this: It seems one’s soul is eternal and is on a quest for perfect enlightenment. Each incarnation you have is meant to correct past lives’ errors and ultimately bring you to a realization that this existence is not the true goal but residing forevermore at peace with the universe i.e. God is. Once you’ve perfected your soul, you are finished with reincarnating. (Note: You can reincarnate into any life form not just human. Witness the Hindu religion and their reverence for cows.)

I found a website, Happy Science, and it informs the reader that a reincarnated soul enters a human body at nine weeks of pregnancy. (It didn’t give any info re cows.) Therefore, the lethal practice of abortion would obviously be a “serious issue” for souls waiting to be born. Chilling, isn’t it, if you seriously believe in souls lining up for re-entry into this world and, through abortion, having to go back to the end of the line to wait for someone with a less deadly agenda.

So. If I am on a quest to perfect my soul, you might say I am in this life working out some less-than-perfect issues. One of these might be my tendency to want to be in control of everything. Aha, you say. If MS teaches us anything, it is that we have no control of anything. Could this be my karma? Your guess is as good as mine.

If reincarnation is true, then it looks like I’ve got lots of re-births awaiting me. I have not reached that stage of accepting MS in this life so that I can float around happily perfected in the next. Reincarnation just can’t be true. Once around this cosmic block should be enough for anyone.

And anyway, besides the controlling issue, I’ve also got an unhealthy fascination for Chinese moo shu pork. My luck would be that I’d next reincarnate into a pig. Unacceptable.
