    I Made It!

    I unfolded, begin to stretch .... arms out wide .... I stand .... I shake and wipe the dust off of me. I inhale, giving thanks to the Heavens for my new birth of life. I made it! sigh........

    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...
