Before, during and after our temporal lives, we are eternal thoughts in the mind of God, "begotten before all worlds."
I wonder about that all the time
True, I've never even considered it.
But I also don't believe in an afterlife so that might be part of it.
I never do, but the reincarnation folks give it some heavy thought. :)
Just a gleam in Daddy's eye.
because we where not existant before we where born that simple
We know more of our forelives well before lucky sperm met choosy egg, only that’s the scientific part. Spiritually, I would imagine a kind of Genesis situation.
I have not discussed those subjects with everyone. Not yet, anyway.
"What does reincarnation mean?" a fellow asked his friend.
His pal replied, "It happens when your life has reached its end.
They comb your hair, and wash your neck, and clean your fingernails,
And lay you in a padded box away from life's travails.
The box and you goes in a hole that's been dug into the ground.
Reincarnation starts in when you're planted in the ground.
Them clods melt down just like your box, and you who is inside.
And then you're just beginning on your transformation ride.
In a while the grass will grow upon your rendered mound,
Till some day on your flattened grave a lonely flower is found.
And say a horse should wander by and graze upon this flower
That once was you, but now's become your vegetative bower.
This posey that the horse done ate up, with his other feed,
Makes bone, and fat, and muscle essential to the steed.
But some is left that he can't use, and so it passes through,
And finally lays upon the ground - this thing that once was you.
Then say, by chance, I wander by and see this thing upon the ground,
And I ponder, and I wonder at this object that I've found.
I think of reincarnation - of life and death and such,
And come away concluding, "Friend, you ain't changed all that much."
I have wondered about the both. I just think we might go to the same place after our death.
Oh that's easy, before we're born part of us is some lucky egg in the ovaries of our mothers and the other part is some lucky 1 in a million sperm cell in our dad's balls
