Disclaimer: These are all my personal spiritual beliefs. I do not wish to impose these views on you.
If you are reading this, you have most likely noticed the change in the website. An upgrade if you must. I have decided to make this upgrade to give me an incentive to know more about this world as the days go by. Maybe take blogging a tad bit more seriously. My end-goal with writing this blog is exploring this ever-surprising world as much as I can.
Over the years I have subconsciously built a foundation for some deep spiritual beliefs. Today, I would like to touch upon my own understanding(or belief) of what happens after death.
My beliefs are mostly mirrored by that of the ancient Egyptians. As Shakespeare most beautifully put it through his portrayal of Lorenzo in the Merchant of Venice:
Such harmony is in immortal souls,
But whilst this muddy vesture of decay
Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.
Although the context may have been different, I like to take the words 'immortal souls' and 'muddy vesture of decay' quite literally. I feel that my body('muddy vesture of decay') is inhabited by my 'soul' which has transcended through generations.
The impression that cats have nine lives makes a little more sense to me. I believe that each soul has an 'expiration date' to be very blunt. The 'expiration date' is dependant on how much of this multifaceted world the soul has experienced. The actions of the body that these souls inhabit also determine the longevity of the soul's existence.
Most people who share this belief of mine believe that your soul's next inhabitation is based on your actions in a previous life. Now, I am in somewhat of a bittersweet agreement with this belief. The main reason that I disagree with this is that take for example you have done a lot of bad in your time in this world. By preemptive belief, you are probably 'reincarnated' as someone who is bound to lead a miserable life of woe and sorrow. History has proven that people who have a comparatively more dented mental situation are more likely to commit bad actions in their lifespan.
This pushes that person's universal existence as an 'immortal soul' into a chain reaction or domino effect of depressing and sorrowful happenings. To me, this feels like a disruption in the universe's spiritual balance.
Although this mindset is fun to ponder upon. When I'm just lying in bed in the middle of the afternoon, I like to imagine the probability that maybe I was once George Washington. Maybe I was someone who left their mark on this world, someone influential. Well, sadly I will never know the details of my previous existence. It is fun to think about though, believe me, try it.
This article is a very brief summary of my beliefs. I could go on and on but let's be honest, no one wants to hear that. If you have made it this far in the article, Thank you for taking time out of your day for a read that may or may not affect your life.
PS: Please be sure to send me your feedback on this new layout that I have employed.
Have a good day :)
