I believe, as you probably do too, that reincarnation answers the seeming
injustices in the world, why some incarnate in poverty or poor health while
others incarnate in riches or good health. It also assures us that at the end
of the long road there is a condition of liberation and freedom from the lower
worlds of time/space/matter. If life were a one shot, one chance opportunity,
then there must be billions of failures. Reincarnation gives us multiple
opportunities for growth and final ascension.

I think the increasing acceptance of this positive philosophy (with its
corollary, Karma) hopefully makes for better behaviour, and hence a better

my 2 cents
