Life after Death, Reincarnation?
Gary’s E books
There are as many theories as to where we go after passing from this earth plane as there are pebbles on the beach. Everyone and every religion have their own dogma.
Some believe there is nothing after this life, while others believe in reincarnation or that we lie in wait for a thousand years for the second coming. Personally , I find it hard to believe there is nothing after this life, what would be the purpose? Why spend all the time and energy of living a life, if what knowledge we have gained wouldn’t be put to good use either by ourselves or others?
Why would someone go to college, or increase their learning when in their golden years if there weren’t some where or some time to share this information?
Others believe after death they will “sleep” until the second coming when all will be resurrected to live again. Most people I know can’t sit still for five minutes, how are they going to sleep for a thousand years? There has to be a better answer.
Many people and religions believe in reincarnation , many individuals have done hypnotic regressions and relived one or more past lives. The Mormons believe after death, we will enter the celestial kingdom, where there are many houses, and thus enter the kingdom earned by the life lived on earth. Hence the more noble and righteous we have been, the better kingdom we will enter.
To me, this is another explanation of reincarnation, where it is believed our future lives are determined by how we treat others and live our lives , thus creating karma or releasing it. Although many would disagree, to me the last two beliefs are the most sensible. They are pretty much one and the same, just different wording to satisfy one’s comfort level.
I realize we rightfully should try to make the world a better place than it was before we came and unselfishly work to that end. However there is always the personal and self interest side of it also. We are also here to improve our selves and work towards perfection so we may enter the Kingdom of God. How can we do that if we only live one life?

We are all working towards perfection, even though each and everyone of us has a different theory of what perfection is. How can we work towards something, if we don’t know what it is? My theory is we can only carve the rough ashlar into a perfect stone by trying over and over again until we finally get it right, and in the process figure out what perfection is, at least our version of it. As all great sages know,there are many valid paths to the truth. Thus it would take more than one existence on earth to walk down them all.
