Consciousness is inherent in everything. Therefore, Buddha nature is inherent in all things as well. This means anything we are able to perceive (as well as that which we’re not) in this reality exists on some point along its own Buddha path, including you. There are multiple beliefs and understandings of reincarnation within Buddhism, just like all religions have their own various schools of thought, however the ultimate point of reincarnation is to achieve liberation through progressive karmic rebirth within the realm of Samsara. This essentially means that once we have been reborn into the form of a sentient being (by way of accumulating “good,” or unifying, karma) we have the ability to awaken to our Buddha nature as we relinquish our attachments and extricate ourselves from the karmic cycle.
While karma is essential for learning and being reborn into higher, or better, levels within Samsara it’s nothing more than a tool to get us to...
Every single human being has asked the question at least once in their lives, what is my purpose? In my experience the answer that people or religions have given me is less than comforting to say the least.

You felt that you were in control and you had no reason whatsoever to enact a change in your life, and yet it has happened all the same.
Whether it dissolved or completely detonated. The world shifted, right before your eyes. Now you find yourself in this strange, liminal space, a space between worlds. You’ve lived in the old world for so long that this new reality overwhelms you. It may even fill you with equal parts adventure and terror. The page has turned and a new chapter forces its way into your mythic story.
At this point, you are completely unsure of whether or not you are starring in a cosmic adventure, a rude joke, or an utter tragedy.
