The prompt is a theme again…
What is rebirth?
A second chance at life?
A chance to do better than before
Or to be born in a form totally different from the first one?
Intriguing questions that perhaps no one can answer with any certainty. For even if people are reborn, they don’t come back with memories of a previous life lived on this earth.
Though I don’t believe that we are given different forms on rebirth on this earth, I do believe that in one lifetime, we are sometimes given a chance to become a better person. A person who has decided to take a new form, abandoning their old traits.
That’s why this phenomenon is often referred to as turning a new page or reinventing oneself. In fact, it is for many, a part of growing. To learn from past mistakes and experiences and do better. It would not be an apparent revolutionary change in the person’s appearance, but rather insidious. They will perhaps look the same but act and behave differently.
To my way of thinking, it would denote a newer and improved version of the old self, or to use modern lingo, version 2.0!
Do you believe in reincarnation or rebirth in the traditional sense?
