    Not sure this topic belongs here. Not really a religion although some religions embrace it.
    Anyway...Im not sure if I believe in it or not. However, i was curious enough to have a reading done and I was told I was a male gunslinger in a previous life. I was told I died a natural death after hanging up my guns and I passed away somewhere back east near the atlantic coast after "retiring" sometime around the middle 1800's. Um. Ok. I think.

    I believe that people can be brought back for a purpose. Not everyone is just a few.

    Of course my doctors tell me that is part of my supposed paranoid delusional state.

    So if they are correct then I suspect reincarnation is not possible.

    I would like to believe it because it would be so cool to think you were a famous general and you might become a president in your next life. Patton believed he was reincarnated but I don't. If scientist haven't proven it, i don't believe in it. Ill keep an open mind if they do find evidence for it.

    All I know is that YOUR PAST LIFE, IMERU is typical of most of the past lives I've every heard about.

    NOBODY is a ever peasant whose life was boring, dull and meaningless.

    Everybody had more interesting lives than they have now? Everybody?!

    Doesn't that strike you as kind of odd?

    How come nobody's past life spent was AS A CLERK AT WOOLWORTHS?

    Every past lifer I've ever spoken to had a far more interesting past life than their current one.

    Most of them were princesses, warriors, and they lead famous heroic and interesting lives.

    And yet so few have that kind of life, now.

    hmmmmm

    Yes I am a STRONG believer in past lives. I've had glimpses of several of mine. Mostly fairly mundane lives. No generals or politicians or anything really important like that. A lot of them seem to be pretty violent existances from the snippets I've seen.

    Actually quite a few of them did. Most of the "gunslingers" out there in the late 19th century didn't die in gunfights. Take a look at what killed most of them... disease, infections, and the same sort of things that killed most of the rest of the population. A gunslinger's career was generally short and brutal. If he survived it, they often went on into law enforcement or other totally mundane occupations.

    No. I believe you are only given one life.
