My friend Lee would say that I just caught the “virus” from him… the “virus” of playing with words. But what can I do? I cannot stop myself from looking at this word… Reincarnation.
A “re” and a “re” and another “re”, done for the same purpose of… incarnating.
“Incarnation literally means embodied in flesh or taking on flesh. It refers to the conception and birth of a sentient creature who is the material manifestation of an entity, god or force whose original nature is immaterial. In its religious context the word is used to mean the descent from Heaven of a god, or divine being in human/animal form on Earth.” is Wikipedia’s definition.
Whether a God will descend or not, this is not the subject of my thought right now. My mind is drawn to wondering about the interaction between the body and soul.
My thought says that when a soul receives a human body to experience a human life, this is called incarnation of the soul.
My thought also says that when the same soul receives a body in a life, another body in another life and again a new body in another new life, this is called reincarnation. Up to here, somehow, all is clear in my mind; at least I suppose that it’s clear.
What if we don’t perceive the entire soul when we think that we talk about the Soul?
What if… what we call a soul, it’s only a part of the unknown?
What if what we say incarnates or reincarnates… it’s not exactly the whole Soul?
I wonder if this incarnation takes place through only a part of our Soul?
This will change everything I thought I know about incarnation and reincarnation.
My mind goes even further on… and wonders… if the reason to come into a human body is to experience… whatever we need to experience… what will happen at the moment when the incarnated part of our soul finishes experiencing what had been planned?
According to what I’ve read in some sources, this means that at the end of the planned experience, we are ready to depart from our bodies, meaning to die.
Well… I understand this, but…
What if finishing those experiences, we reach a new level of consciousness, and we suddenly merit further experiences in the same human body?
The part of our Soul that was here, will no longer be able to experience anything further because… because it was already filled with what was initially planned for it.
if the initial part of the soul finished its job,
if we merit further experiences without leaving our human body…
is it possible for a higher part of our Soul to incarnate into our body while the initial part remains?
no matter if the initial part remains or not
no matter if it is called incarnation or reincarnation,
do we feel with our five human senses when this process takes place?
