    I suppose it is…



    I guess that the thing I'm missing most right now that I really need is passion…

    all the "theories" that I am familiar with dealing with reincarnation deal with it as a non-physical or beyond-the-physical thing. The Tibetans "track" the souls of various of their highly spiritual leaders across the "death states" [bardo] to locate their where they physically reincarnate. The Tibetan Book of the Dead [Bardo Thodrol] deals in detail with these various after-death-states.

    Finally, somebody said it. I am skeptical of people who claim they can help you remember past lives. Seems like a ploy for money.

    The more spiritual side of me wants meaning, but the more rational side of me keeps swatting things down. The way I was raised, reincarnation wasn't a thing. I just am trying to explore and develop something I can really put stock in.



    I need to know something comforting, that I can also back up logically.



    Otherwise, I just have a bunch of possibilities with equal value.



    I guess I need something that I can defend with evidence if I get challenged. I guess I need facts and examples to ground an idea and make it more than a simple concept.



    I guess I am looking for true metaphysical principles that I can champion and spread throughout the world.
    I dont know if you're on the right track. You could start, for example, by seeing beauty and wonder in little things. Thats the first step to spirituality right there.

    There is no evidence for reincarnation or astrology or mbti. However we do have evidence there are the gullible who believe in reincarntion, astrology and mbti. And we do have evidence there are manipulators and manipulative institutions who take advantage of the gullible.

    Mbti attracts the unhappy, the gullible and the lonely - where do we all come from?
