speaking of past lives, i was thinking about being attracted to the same gender. perhaps it happens because you were, for example, a male in your past lives who exclusively loves women.
in this life you were born as a female, but you still longing for what used to make you happy in your past lives (your love for women), and vice versa.
same thing applies to phobias you have, but you don't know where they came from.
also, passion for certain things since childhood. like a boy being born in india, but is totally fond of ancient egypt for some unknown reason, although he's never been there before.., etc..
Everybody thinks they were someone famous in past lives, I think I was probably a leafy vegetable or maybe a bug. Being human has to be like hitting the lottery in the reincarnation business.
i'm not exactly taking reincarnation seriously, but the idea is kind of interesting.
anyway, i'd rather be a bird tbh. the human corpse is large. that size in itself is a burden. i was thinking earlier about cremation vs burial, and why our end as humans has to be so cruel. "i'm not talking about death", i'm talking about how nature treats/deals with the humanbody after death. when you think about it, it's a little bit harsh, isn't it?
