There are probably a few people who reject spiritual words just by hearing them.
I used to be the same way.
There is no such thing as God, and when you die, that’s the end of it. There is nothing left.
I had decided that, and I thought that was the unshakable truth of this world.
Hmmm, but I still think there is a God, don’t you? There are many people who believe in it.
But there are also people who pray, but they ain’t saved.
Well, it’s hard to say that there are, but it’s also hard to say that there aren’t….
Of course, just because I don’t believe in God myself, I don’t make fun of other people’s religious beliefs.
It is up to the individual to decide what he or she believes or does not believe.
I have lived my whole life thinking that spirituality is impossible, but recently my way of thinking has gradually changed, and now I don’t deny spirituality altogether.
In fact, I am now affirming it more and more often.
And one of the spiritual things I affirm is “reincarnation.
I now believe that reincarnation is possible.
I believe that previous lives exist.
So why do I currently believe in reincarnation?
I would like to explain it now.
The fact that a system beyond human knowledge exists in this world
In my life so far, I have come to realize that there are many things in this world that I do not understand.
There are things in this world that are incomprehensible, but at any rate amazing.
For example, I think the process of human development is the best example of this.
When a sperm and an egg unite, a brain is formed, limbs grow, organs are formed, eyes are formed, ears are formed, and the human being is completed… There is a system that is so mysterious and, if you think about it carefully, so crazy and incomprehensible.
The following YouTube video shows a CG reproduction of the process from fertilization to the appearance of a baby, and it is still mysterious no matter how many times you watch it.
All it takes is for such a small sperm and egg to combine, and the rest of the brain, heart, liver, stomach, intestines, bones, etc. are created on their own.
How does it work? Or rather, one can only wonder and wonder who in the world has created such an amazing system.
Can humans really create such an awesome system?
Only recently have humans finally become able to use iPS cells to create organs, but we have not yet been able to create a comprehensive system to create bones, brains, blood, skin, and so on to form a human being.
The development of the materials that make up a human being one after another from a single small fertilized egg is truly mysterious, and it is a system that only God could have created.
If such a system that transcends human knowledge exists, it would not be surprising if there are many other systems that transcend human knowledge.
And I believe that one of these systems that transcend human knowledge is the system of reincarnation.
It would not be surprising if there is a system in which the souls of the dead are collected and recycled.
There are many things in this world that humans cannot understand.
After first recognizing this fact, I began to think a lot about reincarnation.
Are your likes and dislikes memories of a previous life?
Everyone will have their own likes and dislikes.
What we like and eat often, what we can’t eat for some reason, what we are passionate about and what we don’t want to do because we lose track of time, etc. are different for everyone.
I think these are preferences that we are all born with to some extent, rather than learned as we are born and raised.
Why do you like it?” When asked, “What do you like?” the only answer is “I like it because I like it.
And as to how we are born with our innate feelings of likes and dislikes toward various things in this world, I think it is the memory of our past lives.
For example, when a person who lived near a river and made a habit of fishing dies and his soul is recycled into another person’s body, I think that when that person becomes materialistic, he or she will answer, “I like fish.
With this kind of soul recycling, we should be able to give a certain answer to the question of where our innate preference comes from.
Believing in reincarnation can lead to a richer life
I also believe that one should believe in reincarnation because it allows one to live happily.
For example, I have heard a story of a person who was bereaved of a loved one and devastated by despair, but when he thought, “Reincarnation is possible, and I will meet that person again somewhere,” his heart became lighter and hope for life sprouted.
This is what is called spiritual care.
There is also a story of a person who had been thinking about dying, but who, after a certain point, began to believe that there is an afterlife, stopped wanting to die, and was able to live a richer life than before.
It is said that by believing that life has no end, people are able to live their current lives with purpose.
One book on reincarnation says the following
If belief in reincarnation is a phenomenon that makes life more meaningful for us, then the “truth” of whether there really is life after death or not should not matter so much.Creating a Life Worth Living: How Life Works as Deciphered by Spiritual Scientific Research
I think this is true, and even if I am not convinced about reincarnation, I believe that it is better to believe in reincarnation if one can enrich one’s life by one’s way of thinking.
I have explained why I believe in reincarnation.
To date, there are over 2,600 reported cases of reincarnation in 40 countries around the world.
I wonder if all of them are really lies, but I doubt it. ……
Moreover, the scholars who have actually studied reincarnation are neutral, scientific, and seem to be “scholars” who have seriously studied reincarnation.
When it has been scientifically studied, and many actual cases have been reported, it seems to me that reincarnation is a real possibility….
Maybe. Also, I don’t think it’s good that people tend to think you’re crazy if you claim something spiritual like “reincarnation” with a straight face.
Hmmm, but I can understand why people don’t believe in spirituality.
But I wonder if these problems can really be solved by science. ……
I can’t claim this with complete 100% certainty, but I do believe in reincarnation.
And more than anything else, I believe that life is richer when we believe that we can be reincarnated.
Even if things don’t go well, I think it will be a little easier to feel better if I can think, “I’ll do my best again in the next life.
I am thinking, “If I can’t get married, I will try again in the next life” (laughs).
So, that’s all I have to say about reincarnation.
Thank you very much for your patience with my fantasy so far!
