Dream – Death and Reincarnation

A few month back, I had the following dream:

I was driving my car and I suddenly lost control of it and it strayed from the right all the way to the left and hit another men’s four wheeler. The other driver was not harmed but became so enraged. He stepped out of his car, shot and killed me. My body was dead but I was still able to see what’s happening around me. I was like a ghost or spirit. I could roam anywhere I want and fly.

The dream continued but I don’t remember exactly what happened, but when I woke up I remembered a series of insights and messages. The following insights are not based on facts or any truth other than what I dreamt about:

  • If you die naturally or someone murdered you, then you keep the privilege to reincarnate. Those who die like that are called “Fortunate Souls”.
  • If you commit suicide, you lose the privilege to reincarnate with as much freedom as the Fortunate Souls have.
    • Therefore, if you can avoid it, do not commit suicide. Suicide does not let you escape the current perceived misery and trouble in your “real” life.
  • Your time on earth is limited and your death time is known to your creator.
    • Do not worry about your death, for all you know is that you could die at any moment.
    • Focus your life on improving yourself, serving others and making good deeds.

reincarnation bhagavad gita

In chapter two (entitled “Sankhya Yoga: The Eternal Reality of the Souls Immortality”) from the the Srimad Bhagavad-Gita, there are many verse references regarding the reality and science of reincarnation. I quote some verses therein:

Just as in the physical body of the embodied being is the process of childhood, youth, old age; similarly in the transmigration from one body to another the wise are never deluded.
–Chapter 2, verse 13

But know that by whom the entire physical body is pervaded is indestructible. No one is able to cause the destruction of the imperishable soul.
— Chapter 2, verse 17

As a person gives up old and worn out garments and accepts new apparel, similarly the embodied soul giving up old and worn out bodies verily accepts new bodies.
— Chapter 2, verse 22

The soul is indestructible, the soul is incombustible, insoluble and unwitherable. The soul is eternal, all pervasive, unmodifiable, immovable and primordial.
— Chapter 2, verse 24

For one who has taken birth, death is certain and for one who has died, birth is certain. Therefore in an inevitable situation understanding should prevail.
— Chapter 2, verse 27
