Western religions stipulated fear of God hence they created Heaven & Hell while eastern religions focussed on faith in God, therefore created hope affirming Reincarnation. Both beautiful fantasies.
Consider mind as a white canvas that you receive at the time of birth. You carry the canvas wherever you go. It's you who decide what to draw on the canvas, which makes you who you are. Well, who are you in spite of the combination of body, mind & soul that you eventually become. You are the consciousness. You hear voices, right? That's not consciousness. Consciousness is non verbal, a silent observer. Consciousness is what connects body, mind & soul. Consciousness dies with brain (the surviving consciousness is not accessible in the absence of a medium in which it can manifest) but mind as a collection of thoughts remain. People with extra sensory perception (esp) could channel these thoughts for a shorter to longer period. We call them split personality & reincarnated souls respectively.
That's it. There is no Reincarnation. You don't have to look hard for Heaven & Hell. They are right here on earth. You make the choice. __________ #whoamic
