No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth, nor have I given up on my blog. Lately I haven’t been particularly well, and the lack of energy I have been experiencing has made it difficult for me to keep up with many of the things I enjoy. But I am slowly learning to make changes and to put important things first. So, hopefully, I will soon be back to posting regularly.
Witches Weekly: Death and Afterlife
What are your thoughts on what happens after you die?
I’ve written about this before, and my thoughts are still the same. I believe that we are reincarnated in order to work through a series of lessons, and in the end we will be reunited with the Divine. But I am also very afraid that when we die there is nothing more–that we just stop being.
Has this belief changed at some point in your life from a different theory? If so, how?
I was raised as a Presbyterian, so I once believed that when we died the good people went to heaven and sat with God, and the bad people were tortured in Hell. It was a rather simplistic view, but much better then believing nothing at all happened. 🙂 As I began to explore Wicca, I found the theory of reincarnation to be more fitting with my views on the world and spirituality.
Do you belief in any sort of karma and reincarnation?
I don’t believe in karma in the Buddhist way, in that actions taken in past lives cause events in our current life. (Although I do believe that if we didn’t learn a lesson in one life, we will face it again in another life.) Rather, I believe in the spirit of the Three Fold Law, were cause and effect are felt in this lifetime. As for reincarnation, I have explained my thoughts on that in the first question.
