these are called The Great Secrets, which cannot be fathomed; death is one, birth is another.
One thing I can tell you – your last thought can cause you your next birth.
Just before dying, if you are thinking of chicken, you will most probably find yourself in a poultry farm, coming out of an egg.
Similarly, if you are too fond of dogs, for sure, in the next lifetime, you will become one.
This is because the deepest, strongest impressions in the mind takes you to the next life.
This is the reason why a mouse, which is afraid of a cat, becomes a cat in its next life.
A worm, which is afraid of a bird, will become a bird.
how and why does a soul choose a specific body to be born?
Thus, your fears or cravings will bring you the next birth!
I cannot say any more
