Truth or Myth?

Posted: August 28, 2012 in books

okay so here is what most seem to say :

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.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.

Plato

“The Soul is older than body. Souls are continuously born over again into this life.” 

William Wordsworth
“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.” 

Kahlil Gibran
“A little while, a moment of rest upon the wind, and another woman shall bear me.” 

so do our souls really get reborn? i believe there must be some truth to it otherwise the subject wouldn’t be so widely spoken about, i doubt someone woke up one day and decided “i think i’ll spread a little rumour about how our soul is reborn into another!” i can’t say i’ve ever had flash backs of another life although have experienced moments of deja vu, but it’s the same with all the unexplained things out there. i’ve never seen a ghost or experienced a poltergeist, nor have i come across a vampire or a werewolf but yet these things go back for centuries so there must be some degree of truth to it. These days vampires, werewolves and even ghosts are being portrayed as drop dead gorgeous sex gods but if you go back to where they originally started they were ugly evil gruesome creatures and i definately wouldn’t want to come across them in a dark alley! so my point is truth or myth? i don’t know, if i see it then i’ll believe it but all these things came from somewhere. If you know otherwise please do fill me in!
