In Judaism it's said that cremation is wrong because our souls have energetic attachments to the body, especially if we spent a lot of time focusing on our physical and material needs, and it will take a lot of time for that attachment to go away. That is why cremating a body will cause the attached soul pain. What do you think of that...and would you get cremated? I am sorry if this post hurts you or makes you anxious... I have recently heard three different people bring up cremation this month (two today) and I feel the universe is pushing me to discuss this. I don't believe in that theory because I was raised Jewish, but because it makes sense to me - objects carry our energy and there is no object we spend more time with in our lives than our bodies... I also wonder if the body being cremated after we die will affect our cell memory and make us afraid of fire in our next life.
