If reincarnation is real, and living a bad life leads to reincarnation as a non-human, there must be a way for non-human beings to live a good life and become human. amirite?

how can fkin beetle live a good life?

The way I see it (obviously there's no way of knowing), living a non-human life is a way for our stream of consciousness to learn things that would have helped us be better in our past life. Were you selfish? Well, now you get to be a fly and learn to survive off the scraps others leave behind. Did you trap yourself in a dead end job and/or marry someone who you didn't truly want to spend forever with? Go live a life as a bird and learn the importance of freedom.

But that also makes me wonder, what is the purpose of our CURRENT life. What lesson or lessons can I take away from the things I've experienced and how can I use them to improve our reality for everyone?

So the phases as an animal are a sort of lesson/punishment?

I wonder what child rapists get incarnated as then. Or domestic abusers, etc.

I got goosebumps reading this. I had a preconceived notion that goes along the lines of what you just described. I want to hear more

Do they need to 'climb the ladder', going Beetle -> fish -> bird -> fox -> dog -> human?

I think it goes: insect, fish, bird, fox, human, dog, Emma Watson's bicycle seat.

I know that, in Buddhism, its your duty to include animals in religious ceremony, to help them on their journey to become a better incarnate the next time around.

Going from human to animal is considered a punishment, so its the responsibility of humans to help guide the lost energies back to the fold in a sense

What if we're all living in a hell and the animals are living a good life?

It's a matter of energy and mindset. Not actions

According to Delores Cannon's channeled work "Between Death and Life", it's actually pretty rare for a soul which has begun incarnating into human lifetimes to go back to living as most any kind of animal.

This is because what forms of life a soul is capable of incarnating into depends on their level of awareness. It has nothing to do with moral character.

And I think it goes without saying that the average human generally has more cognitive ability than most any other animal. Even the most intelligent non-human creatures are only about as smart as a 7 year old human.

It is possible for a soul to incarnate as an animal after having lived human lifetimes, but that is the spiritual equivalent of age regression. And for most souls save for the rare few who are so miserable they become desperate, losing their cognitive ability for abstract reasoning to a physical brain that's incapable of it would be too painful to bear.

It may be having to live through them repeatedly and deal with those experiences not so much living a good life. Only after dealing with the experiences of lesser forms of life could they be more sympathetic to people thus living a better life.

@HolgerSturm It may be having to live through them repeatedly and deal with those experiences not so much living a good life...

This isn't too different from the 'egg' theory. All living things on earth (every human, animal, plant, etc.) is actually a single 'soul'. That soul keeps living through the same earth, looping for billions of years, experiencing every side of every experience.
