Most, if not all of us, believe in reincarnation to some degree. But beyond that basic belief, I’m sure that we all vary in the details of our individual beliefs. But just how much do we differ? I’m nearing 65, & have believed strongly in reincarnation for close to 60 years, although at first I didn’t know the term reincarnation. I think I have quite conservative views on the workings of reincarnation, but I try to keep an open mind, and will consider most anything. My beliefs come from my own personal experiences, as well as from what I’ve read in books and on various forums, and from discussions with other people. I nearly always find the discussions here interesting, thought provoking, and sometimes even mind expanding. Sometimes I do find posts I feel are dubious, and at best entertaining, but who knows for sure, maybe those theories are correct as well. I would think that our different ages might influence what we believe and adopt into our overall picture of what is and isn’t probable about reincarnation. Some posts that I read make me wonder if that person views life almost as if it were a kind of video game. Others make me envision more of a science fiction approach. Again, since we can only speculate, any or all of these ideas could be close to the truth. Muddying the waters, so to speak, could be the fact that we may have members who are skeptics, visionaries, and even non-believers and debunkers. We seem to have members who, like I try to do, always label their comments as mere opinion, while others would have you believe that they have all the answers. Myself, I judge each member’s comments based partly on what I currently believe, and partly on what that member might have posted in the past. I take my study of reincarnation very seriously, and keep an open but doubtful mind when I read something that seems far-fetched based on my beliefs. And while I haven’t radically changed my thinking, I have expanded, or adjusted my understanding and beliefs, because of things I have read here. So my questions are 1, how do you decide what and who to believe, 2, do you see our discussions as a way of learning more, or as a form of entertainment, and 3, have, and how much, your beliefs been changed or adjusted reading the discussions here?
