My dad is Buddhist and my mom is Catholic. I was raised catholic but after a while I started to become agnostic after much thinking about religion. After researching many things I've concluded that consciouness does exist after we die, we meet loved ones, etc. But then I came across many believers in reincarnation and it makes sense to me because I can't imagine an infinite heaven with those I love. Let me tell you one thing though, even though reincarnation does make most sense to me I don't want to believe in it. I absolutely hate the idea of starting all over again, forgetting my good memories, forgetting my loved ones, and those relationships gone. I love my life and everyone in it. I don't want it to change. Why can't we just some how spend eternity being happy and if I want to spend time with the ones I care about have that option?
I guess I am okay with the idea of reincarnation but I really don't want to start another life and I don't want the possibility of my dad becoming my husband in a next life O.o I don't care what you say I think that's so weird.
Another thing I'm confused with is some people say we reincarnate as groups with loved ones. Our loved ones wait for us to reincarnate whenever we're ready. That doesn't make sense to me because it'd be an endless cycle. For example my great grandma won't reincarnate without my grandma. My grandma won't reincarnate without my mother, my mother won't reincarnate without me, but I don't want to reincarnate without my child, etc. etc. It just doesn't make sense to me!
If anyone that is not into organized religion but doesn't believe in reincarnation feel free to enlighten me on what you believe and how eternity is possible. I do believe that time may not exist in our world.
