I would like to associate religion with science in explaining causality (karma), and reincarnation.
I believe that each of us has a soul (heart) which is a positive energy source that connects or envelopes our minds (cerebral). Our soul (positive energy) attracts the negative energy of our thoughts. Each soul is surrounded by negative energies, which at times is released causing suffering or illness to the individual (karma or innen). Upon death, our soul separates from our minds, and ascends to heaven with these negative energies which it is surrounded by. Eventually, our soul returns to earth with its negative energies, and connects with a developing mind (reincarnation).
We as humans have the ability to resist our negative thoughts (greed, arrogance, and self love) by using reasoning and understanding. By this process, our negative thoughts become less, and our souls become more pure. When the mind becomes pure, the soul is not covered by negative energy. When negative energy is gone, suffering and pain disappears. This is what God wants for all mankind.
