The Payback

I don’t believe in much. While I was minding my own business the other day, I decided it was time I believed in something. I began wondering about reincarnation and read up on the subject. Apparently several religions have reincarnation at the heart of their belief systems. Reading ‘Tibetan Buddhism for Dummies’ I learned that your rebirth in the next life depends on your actions in this life. If you devote your time and energy to helping others in this world, your reincarnation in the next life is where you will reap the rewards. On the flip side, if you’re a nasty piece of work in this life, your next reincarnation is where you’ll pay for it. A number of eastern religions believe in variations of this principal. I liked the idea behind this and thought about becoming a good person and maybe picking up the rewards in the next life. Then I thought about it the other way around. For me, to be living the life I lead now, means I must of been one miserable son of a dog in my last existence! Bill Y
