There are over 7 billion people on earth. What makes each of us so different? Science will say that we are all identical in the components that make each of us. But is there a spark, an identifiable entity that separates one from the other 7 billion that walk the earth today?
It is accepted that the human body generates energy from the food we consume. This energy can be converted to many forms of energy that sustain our bodies. Our thoughts are composed of energy also. Our positive thoughts release positive energy, while our negative thoughts release negative energy. Positive thoughts are good thoughts of helping others, while negative thoughts include greed, arrogance and self-love. Positive energies are said to help the body grow and develop, while negative energy harms the body in the form of illness and depression.
Suppose each of us has within a positive energy source that continues forever. Some will say this energy source originates from God. This energy source has the capability to continually absorb and release the negative energy produced by the mind while residing in our bodies. Like the sand in the sewage systems that purifies our water supply, the source captures our negative energies (evil thoughts), and continues to eliminate them from our bodies.
Suppose these negative energies trapped by the energy source is released into the environment. These negative energies can be converted to intense weather conditions, and seismic movements. These negative energies also boomerang back to us as sufferings or inconveniences in our lives. Remember that energy is never created or destroyed. What our reactions are when confronted with these inconveniences determine if we continue to accumulate negative energy or create positive energy.
So each of us have an individualized entity that stores our disposition in the form of negative energy. Like the DNA (genes), they store important information. They store the negative energies created by our past evil thoughts. It is this entity of energy that continues beyond the termination of our bodies. Like our report cards, we carry this to the next level. For the proponents of reincarnation, the energy source transfers to a developing fetus, continuing the process of eliminating the evils that have accumulated in the previous lives. For those who believe in heaven that is separate from earth, the energy source is ready to be judged.
What is this energy source? In some religious textbooks, they call it the innermost heart. Others will call it the soul. Whether scientist would ever be able to locate it in our bodies is unknown. But it is something to think about whether we believe in God or not.
