Is it bullshit or is it about hope?
Most of my glipho friends are discussing reincarnation. I have been lazing around the past 10 days so I don’t have an idea why. But since these are my friends and friendship of any sorts means that I have to butt into any conversation they are into, so here I am with my two pence:
Once a dear friend from college was making me complete her journal while she was going for a movie. I told her it was wrong to make others work while you yourself are having fun. I tried to be nice to her and then scolded and warned too but she wouldn’t get it.
So I told her “What you are doing is a sin and you are going to pay for this if not in this life then next! Since this is our last year you will pay for this by writing for me in the next life!”
Smart ass said, “You have made me write your journal in last life so you write it in this life. Account closed.”
The question about anything is not if IT is or not….if it exists or not.
The question about everything in this world : is, always has been and always will be: if you can use IT or not.
If a certain theory is usable it becomes a part of life, if it is not it is soon discarded.
The Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest is not just applicable to animals and humans but to ideas of science, philosophy and religion too.
If something…anything gives hope to sustain mankind it will exist, if not it will die a natural death.
Reincarnation is about hope : hope to pay off debts, hope to get rid of guilt, hope of revenge, hope of saying sorry or I love you or many such things…hope that there is a tomorrow even after death….. hope to do all that we couldn’t in this life.
Isn’t the tomorrow we wait so desperately about hope? And reincarnation gives us a tomorrow even after death!Like they say there is nothing such as tomorrow: so to prove if reincarnation is true or not is for the greater heads….of course people from all sorts of field have been arguing for or against it for so many thousands of years and will continue to do so…so as to say there is as much tomorrow as it is not !
But Isn’t everything , God, reincarnation, heaven, hell, all the million and one science and philosophies and etc are about giving us hope for a better life and have been used by people for varying reasons? And yes these very subjects and objects are used to keep people from rebelling against the standard accepted social norms! And yes, people rebel and that is mandatory for the world to grow.
But irrespective of right or wrong, faith or logic, religion or science….truly speaking everything in this world is about hope….about a tomorrow where one can be better or payback all sorts of debts !
