    Reincarnation

    I am a firm believer in past lives and reincarnation so I do not think we ever really die. Yes our physical forms may perish but our spirit always reawakens in another body or another spiritual form.  So in essence we all rise from the ashes of our decayed physical...

    One Day.

    I always say the past makes you who you are. And what you do now will effect your future. I can't say whether I'm such a big idiot or jackass for the decisions that I've made that are affecting me right now as I am typing this down. They are pretty humiliating to admit and I have...

    Battlefield!
