Does Reincarnation exist?
Life between Life
and Past Lives
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.”
- William Shakespeare
Does Reincarnation exist? Why do people believe in Reincarnation?
This is a topic I have read books about and believe in. Reincarnation is considered by some to be the greatest “unknown” scientific discovery of modern times. Asking why people believe in Reincarnation is like asking why people believe in Santa Clause or why they believe in an afterlife? There isn’t necessarily any logic behind it and really there doesn’t have to be any reason at all other than it sounds nice.
People in general need something to believe in. Religious people, spiritual people, atheists: we all need something to believe in. It could be anything from science to the Easter bunny to reincarnation. It gives us hope and a goal to strive toward. Also Because it’s true, mostly and it’s beginning to be accepted as a real possibility by even the most skeptical people and scientists.
If you still don’t believe ask yourself why when trees ‘die’ in winter they ‘come back’ in spring? Flowers too. /Just ignore those bulb things in the Earth/. Lots of insects and amphibians change their form as they develop to.
Take all of that, questions of where our ego comes from when we are born and where it goes when we die, and a huge fear of non-existence and you get a belief in Reincarnation.
I have STRONG Faith in Reincarnation. Reincarnation is one of my favorite topics and over time I have read a ton of books including novels about Reincarnation. While the non-fiction books on past lives are some of my favorites, I do love reading novels that have something about reincarnation (and time travel) as well. I like thinking that you were once someone else, and even though you’re who you are now, there’s no telling if the past of your soul has anything to do with it. Here is the moment to share that because I’ve always been fascinated by the subject /Reincarnation/, I even wrote a teen fiction novel based on some ideas and real stories /The legend of The Moonstone/. I hope you will enjoyed.
Anyway, Life has so much wonder. /I don’t believe that we Reincarnate into animals or such… only humans, basically to come back to learn until we reach full enlightenment./
“I have been born more times than anybody except Krishna.”
- Mark Twain
“Finding myself to exist in the world, I believe I shall, in some shape or other, always exist.”
- Benjamin Franklin
“I am confident that there truly is such a thing as living again…”
I think the answer of question – Why do people believe in Reincarnation, is really simple. People believe in those concepts that give them some sense of security and purpose in life. They want to believe there is more to life than their own little existence, that there’s something that will keep them alive, the theists have their afterlives, and this lot have reincarnation. It’s nice to think you’ll get another chance at life, that this one life isn’t all that you have.
I am certain that there are some things in which you believe that others find rather mystifying. We all have lessons to learn in our past lives that carry over to our present lives. Maybe we unconsciously chose to be born into our specific families for reasons that will never be known to us. Maybe the lessons we learn in this life will need to be repeated in the next. Who knows… The Universe works in mysterious ways. So why don’t you just consider the idea that the Reincarnation exist!?
So here is my recommendation list of the best novels on reincarnation that I have checked or read so far. As I am reading more, I will be adding to this list. Some stem from real life experiences while others are just novels that entertain – and they definitely entertain and keep me occupied with reading for hours!

Have You Read Any Of These Novels About Reincarnation?
I believe Reincarnation does exist, however, I can’t prove it scientifically. What is important to understand is that recalling past lives – real or fiction – benefits people in profound and dramatic ways.
Even if you don’t believe in Reincarnation, if you believe that everything happens for a reason, and have faith in God’s plan for you, do you ever wonder or believe did we pick our parents and families and such, to make sure we learn whatever lessons we need to learn in this current life?
What do you think of Reincarnation? Do you believe that such a thing exist? Think deeply…
Best wishes on your journey!
