What if? What if the entire world believed in heaven? What if the entire world believed in causality and reincarnation? What unlikely scenario would be the best for mankind, a belief in heaven, or a belief in reincarnation?
If we all believed in heaven, some people would still be killing and hurting each other to get into heaven; some people would be good and giving for the purpose of getting into heaven. Heaven appears to be a reward for the life on this earth. Sometimes earth becomes the battleground. We compete against each other to enter heaven.
If we believe in causality and reincarnation, fear will prevent some people from committing atrocities to others; some will be good to guarantee a better future in the next life. Peace and joy on earth appears to be the goal if one believes in reincarnation and causality, a heaven on earth. As opposed to a belief in heaven, we help each other to make the earth better.
Which concept heaven or reincarnation would be better for the world? Something to ponder about.
