no one is here without purpose
we all have a purpose in life

this World is the school for the soul
we are here to learn
we are here to grow

we must learn that
we are more than our bodies
we are souls that happen
to have bodies
not bodies
that happen
to have souls

death is not the end
but only a transition
though our bodies
crumble and die
our true Self
persists and simply moves
into a new body

these are only two lessons
of the thousands we must learn
and until we do
we will persist
returning continuously
to this great schoolhouse
where the truly important lessons
are learned

Well written and it certainly provides food for thought. I'm not sure if I believe in reincarnation but I've got an open mind and will entertain all possibilities. Thanks for sharing.

We so often forget that we are always learning...
