Reincarnation is something people are constantly arguing over and I could see how they would be. We can’t know for sure what happens when we die until we actually do.
The University of Virginia’s psychiatrist Jim Tucker has been exploring reincarnation for years now. Back in 2008 he actually published a review of several cases that suggested reincarnation was a real thing in the journal Explore. Tucker describes a normal reincarnation as something where a person reports having a past life experience of some sort.
“The subjects usually stop making their past-life statements by the age of six to seven, and most seem to lose the purported memories. This is the age when children start school and begin having more experiences in their current life, as well as when they tend to lose their early childhood memories.”
These children show deep emotional involvement when they speak about their past life experiences and most actually cry and beg their parents to take them to their previous families. How would you feel if you were to find out that reincarnation was a fact? Would it change the way you live your life?
If you have never heard of Alan Watts, you will probably remember him after hearing his views on death. He was a British philosopher, speaker, writer and so much more. His words bring me more inspiration than anything I have ever heard before.
“We live in a culture where it has been rubbed into us in every conceivable way that to die is a terrible thing. And that is a tremendous disease from which our culture in particular suffers.”
Take the time to check out the video below to learn more about what he thought about death and really take in his words. If you take only one thing from this article please at least understand that you should not fear death. Dying is not as terrible of a thing as we may think. From death comes life no matter how you look at it whether it is our life or another.
