Growing up I was always told things like “if you eat while you’re laying down, in your next life, you will be a hippo” and “if you’re a good person in this life, you’ll be wealthy in your next life”
I always believed what I was told. I never knew having another life after death was a Buddhist belief. I would warn my friends (the same way my parents and grandparents did to me) when they would simultaneously eat and lounge. They always wondered where I heard all of those crazy “myths.” I eventually learned it was a Buddhism thing. I definitely believe in having a next life.
But who says it would be on Earth? 🌏
I don’t attend church, never have. I have gone to the Cambodian Temple in Farmington, MN to help feed the Monks, listen, and sat through their prayers plenty of times since I was a little girl.

When I’m sad or in trouble, I pray to both God and Buddha to help me. I think they both exist. I think they’re both listening.
I also believe in unicorns, vampires, magic, witches. I believe in everything. It’s all out there somewhere. We just don’t get to see and experience it all.
At least… not in this life.
