Living and Dying, and living and dying...

Lately I've been thinking a lot about life and death. Wondering about other perspectives on the topic other than the Christian one I have known so long. Becoming of a skeptical mind and questioning everything, I am exploring other worldviews. I want to write more but I am very tired, more sleep is needed.

Okay, fresher now, and trying to remember what exactly I was thinking when I first started to write this. I think it was a contrast to the Christian world view, that you have this one life and then you spend the rest of eternity with the Lord. The contrast being that our existence on this planet is a small part of a larger existence, maybe one of many lifetimes on this planet, or others. Who knows? So my question is, at this point, what is the nature of our existence? Does Christianity have it right? Or the eastern religions with reincarnation? Or does the New Age free thinkers have some valid points? Or do they all have a part of the truth?

That has become my quest of the past few months. If I get around to it, I would like to publish my findings and ideas here in the weeks and months ahead.
