My Views On The Free Will Of Reincarnation

As far as I am concerned reincarnation is real but I am undecided on whether or not we have a choice; I think it may be a combination of the two. Here are my basic reasons and I will elaborate further later on in this. First off if it were simply our choice many would not and if it were no choice of ours we would all most likely manifest that in the next life by unhappiness. While most people could argue that yes their lives can be a bit trying or sad at times I do not personally know anyone who has hated every waking moment of there lives and never known even a glimmer of happiness. So I propose that it is a balance of wanting to and being made to.

I personally think that when you die you are given a choice to go back and learn more in order to attain a higher level of being and eventually earn the choice of never having to go back and just guiding and watching (learning) from afar or to stay for a while till you are ready to give it another try. In the long run we all come back multiple times but I think we are allowed to take a breather and just watch from above till we decide that it is time. I also think that those whose spirits left right away to go back down are more likely to retain past knowledge and get easier access to their past lives through past life exploration or just from the memories naturally making themselves heard. If you wait however the memories will fade and in your next life you are less likely to remember them accurately or clearly.

When you are taking your little break however, if you take one, I do not believe that you can just idly sit around even if you wanted to. My belief is that you will have some time to do what you want-you know take a tour of the universe that kind of thing - but eventually it becomes your job to guide and help those who you are watching to try to see to it that they do as well as they can and are guided in the right direction. That is also what I believe a guardian angle or ascendant master would be - simply someone from a time before you, with the knowledge you need, waiting to come back and in the meantime guiding you along your chosen path through life, helping you when you ask for help.

Some people may find the belief in reincarnation odd but to me it is the only thing that makes sense. If every soul of every person that died were to go to heaven or hell (depending on your belief it may not be heaven or hell but you know what I mean) they would be very crowded places. So it makes sense to me that people’s souls must come back in order to have a second chance or just to have fun a second time. There is always more to learn so if you can come back and learn it why not do that? All knowledge is worth having so we might as well get as much as we can and with an infinite amount of time we could have an infinite amount of knowledge.

It would explain why so many of the notable people in our histories tend to have similar personalities or to make similar decisions. It is not simply coincidence or random chance nor is it “the same bad luck.” They are either acting on the guidance of those who are watching or the memories manifesting themselves in the present. The same goes for all those who do horrible deeds in their lives; they model someone and were guided to it.

It also is stated in the charge of the Goddess “I have been with thee from the beginning , and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.” In my opinion it is knowledge that we all desire most for it leads to all that we want be it money, power, or simply happiness. But the end result, whatever it may be, can be found through the gaining of knowledge.

So yes basically those are the main reasons that I believe in reincarnation. There is more to say but I do not know how to put it into words. Most of what I know to be true I know through feeling and emotion, neither of which can be simply explained in text. So I hope that what I said here did not offend anyone and I hope there are at least a few others out there in this big wide world that see where I am coming from and have an idea of what I mean. I also hope that anyone reading this for answers found what they were looking for. Even though we are here does not mean we cannot be guides both for those with us and those watching from above. For now I will leave you with a simple blessing and a wish for peace and happiness in all of your lives and the lives of all those you touch:

I call the blessing of the Goddess and the God upon you.
Blessed be your feet that bring you on your path.
Blessed be your knees that support you in front of the Lady and Lord.
Blessed be your sexuality that honors life.
Blessed be your heart that holds you true to your path.
Blessed be your lips which speak the sacred names.
Blessed be your eyes which see the beauty of nature.
Blessed be your mind which seeks wisdom and knowledge from the Goddess and the God.

May the blessings of the Goddess and the God be upon you all the rest of your days.

Blessed be,
