Dear Open Journal
I’m not entirely convinced by the idea of a pure reincarnation. I find it easier to believe that spirit manifests itself in similar ways to a liquid or a gas or even sea rocks… I’ll use a sea rock analogy. Imagine hundreds of different rocks each with their own unique hue and shape and let those represent humans with their own unique souls and lives. Now as time passes those sea rocks become ground by the water and become sand themselves, intermingling their colors. But one day, under enough pressure, they fuse together into different rocks with a different overall color. They still maintained a bit of their first color but now they have other colors from other sea rocks mixed in. So I believe with souls, we may still have bits and pieces from previous lives but it’s not one soul that keeps getting reused and reused but soul particles that disperse and reassemble with other bits of other souls mixed in.
So that’s why I’m hesitant to even start looking at past lives, because even tho it might reflect a part of myself I might be looking at a soul part that someone else actually has, not me. I am the result of thousands of lives before me, I am not a single soul that has been passed down from person to person through history. My soul is fluid.
