Who or what would you like to be in your next life? Or, if you prefer, what do you think you would likely be (or deserve to be, if you're into karma and that kind of thing) in your next life?

Don't just leave it as: "I want to be a eagle." What kind of person (or eagle, or whatever) do you want to/think you will be?

Demonic Overlord. I will leave it to your imagination to decide what kind of being one would be like.

Well, I'd like to be in heaven.

Buuut if possible I'd like to be an American actor or something... That'd be cool.

I'd like to be a professional Poker player in my next life. Even though it may seem like a "lame profession", Poker doesn't require the physical exertion that sports like Football require [even the players that enjoy the game know that it takes a lot of out of them] and still offers a huge reward. Not only that, but I've always wanted to learn how to play, the game interests me quite a bit. I'm not sure what I think I would be, but I highly doubt I deserve to be what I'd want to be, maybe some type of wild animal? In all honesty, I'm not sure.

I'd much rather not be reincarnated.

UNLESS. It's like a short story I read where you are reincarnated into everyone and each time you lose your memory until you've been everyone in every time. Then you die again and all that experience come back to you and you're born as an awesome being in a completely different world and it would be awesome.

Or a famous artist. That'd be nice too. About this time.

I feel like I have a very spiritually enlightened soul. In an earlier thread, I stated my beliefs spiritually. In it, I said "I believe in reincarnation, but not of which is a reincarnation of a deity (since I don't believe in a deity). I believe reincarnation occurs immediately after one's death. I believe that reincarnation is not something that occurs entirely on it's own, and that once a soul has reached the point where it is enlightened enough and spiritually developed, it retreats somewhere above the cosmos." I find that I fall in that group of souls that has reached the point where it is enlightened enough and spiritually developed enough for my soul to retreat somewhere above the cosmos. I'd be very disappointed to know that my soul would be reincarnated.

There's also a lot of things that go with reincarnation that I've always found myself to believe. For instance, when one is reincarnated, they are quick to learn things that have interested them in past lives, the spirit retains all spiritual knowledge of the world, and you lose all of your memory. My beliefs are actually something I find to be very interesting. There's a set of conditions that need to be met and everything. It'd be nice to write them all down somewhere!

I want to be human... definitely, always.

Really, this is want I want to do in this life, but feel I'm incapable and that it's impossible for my current self. That's what people really mean when they answer questions like this right?

I want to be someone who does something notable, something for the good of other people, or for animals because I love them equally. I just want to have a positive impact on a large number of sentient beings. It doesn't matter what it is.

I just want to lead a simple life, no school, no computers, no everything.

Either a Japanese schoolgirl because anime has taught me that they're totally awesome and cute.

Or, barring that, I'd like to be reborn as a 1985 Buick LeSabre Limited because that car was epic.

What's with the Japanese life addiction

I would like to be reborn in a different age. It doesn't matter who I'll be, since I would change my decisions in life, it's just the era that I would like to see changed, instead of me.

I don't have an interest in karma, either, but supposedly, that would be it.

I want to be reborn as a Raichu some kind of animal. It doesn't matter what animal, I just want to see the world in a different way.

I honestly don't have anything I particularly want to be in a theoretical next life. Just living another life would be enough for me, even if I was to be reincarnated into something I hate, like a bug. :s

Assuming I don't remember anything, uh, I guess I'd want to be human again. Just, not the same kind. I'd want to live somewhere else, have a different background, be a different gender, that kind of thing. It'd get boring if I lived basically the same life over again, even if I didn't remember it.

If it were a form related to karma, I'd probably turn out to be a bug everyone hates anyway, haha. Not necessarily a bad person, but I'm super lazy and am probably not good enough to be a decent creature next life. /pessimist

I'd want to be a bounty hunter/mercenary wandering the world in search of an easy buck and a fun fight, well that's one thing to note anyways lol.

Definitely something completely different. I know that I have it pretty good, which means that "completely different" would probably also mean "worse". But it's always driven me crazy that there are so many walks of this life, and you only get to try one of them.

Time to answer my own question.

I don't fancy being reborn as a sloth or anything like that so... human is what I'd want to be. Some kind of life where I grow up happy and healthy would be best, and if possible I'd like to be some person who leaves the world a better place. I think I'd always want to be reborn as that kind of person. In a more wild-ish fantasy I'd like to be some kind of peaceful revolutionary who brings positive change to somewhere like North Korea or Afghanistan or somewhere like that.

I'd like to be a boy, no joke. I've never really liked being a girl, to be honest. Not sure why, but I would like to be the complete opposite in my next life. However, I wouldn't want to be reborn again.

I don't really think I believe in reincarnation or anything relating to it, but it's an interesting topic for discussion. With that said, I'm pretty sure I'd like to be a human being in my next life. And I think I'd like to remain the same character-wise, because I can't quite imagine myself being quite different than how I am now (not that the me in this life has anything to do with the next). But, I'd like my life's setting to be different, or whatever takes place in my life. I want to be more adventurous, to have more freedom, and store more wisdom. Either this, or I'd just want to be a pirate in the OP world C:

Wouldn't mind reincarnating into a manga artist, K/J-Pop singer, or a killer whale. Altho, the killer whale one would be pretty interesting.

Well in my next life I want to be a woman (again), blonde, short, and pretty much everything I'm not right now. I still wanna be really girly and hate sports though D:
Oh and I want to be Thai! Thai people are beautiful. I want to be able to speak English well. I don't want to be an animal though... Human please~
