What do you want to come back as? Reincarnation.

The majority of people that I work with are Buddhist. Long story, but I put two and two together when a coworker asked me "Why?! Why you kill it?" True story.

Just for fun: What would you like to return as?

Serious: Are there guidlines for who comes back as what?

  • I don't believe in reincarnation, but if I did...

    In my next life, I'd like to come back as a bear.
    When you're a bear, you get to hibernate.
    You do nothing but sleep for six months.
    I could deal with that.

    Before you hibernate,
    you' re supposed to eat yourself stupid.
    I could deal with that, too.

    When you're a girl bear, you birth your children
    (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping
    and wake to partially grown, cute cuddly cubs.
    I could definitely deal with that.

    If you're a mama bear,
    everyone knows you mean business.
    You swat anyone who bothers your cubs.
    If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too.
    I could deal with that.

    If you're a bear,
    your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling.
    He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat.
    Yup. . . gonna be a bear

  • I believe we come back as people... I don't believe we can come back as other things. However, I have always liked the idea of inter-species reincarnation... I would like to come back as a Japanese Maple. They are just absolutely beautiful and my favorite tree... If not that, then a long stem Red Rose Bush... They are beautiful and have thorns, just like me!

  • Guidelines seem to depend on the persons belief system. I know some think you can come back as anything from a person to a tree while others believe you pretty much stick to your own kind(so to speak).

    Id love to come back as a guy. Give the other side a try LOL.

  • A butterfly. It'd be a short life, but fluttering around on the breeze visiting flowers sounds so nice.
