The Endless Cycle of Birth, Rebirt and Redeath of Buddhist: Insight

Samsara (also known as cycle of existence or wheel of suffering) is the endless cycle of birth, rebirth and redeath, according to Buddhist. As an ordinary human being, I cannot justify it via scientific experiment or observation. However, I do find an interest similar phenomenon in our daily life. In this post, I draft and share my idea as a record for future thinking.
Instead of the so-called six realms of existence and a relatively long period in each realm of existence, I believe that the six realms of existence occur in our life, daily.

God Realm (Blissful State)

Today, you may in the so-called God Realm if you are happy and comfortable. Maybe today is your birthday, everyone celebrate and bless you a very happy birthday. You feel extremely happy and relax during that time. Or, maybe you have been selected as the CEO of XXX company since last week. You will be paid attractive salary and granted the highest executive authority in the company.

Asura Realm

Today, you are jealousy and struggling to figure out a way to combat your opposition or competitors. You are trying to figure a way to harm others so that you will be benefited from such actions. For example, in order to earn more money for your family, you decide to do illegal activities. 

Human Realm

When we were young, we were full of passion to create an idea life. We love our environment, we love that small ants. We were amazed by our world; and care about almost everything around us.

Animal Realm

When we were not using our brain to think about our life, we were in animal realm. Animal simply do everything according to their instinct. They repetitively eat, play, sleep; eat, play, sleep daily from generation to generation. It is quite impossible for them to share and develop their knowledge from generation to generation. 

Preta Realm

You may in Preta Realm (also known as Hungry Ghost realm) if you have unlimited desired to pursuit your imagination. You may have a very strong desire to earn money so that you will have a better life. However, you are never satisfied. This is because the more you earn, the more your spend.  

Hell Realm

If you are trying to earn fast money via speculation plus leveraging, the failure of such risky activities will accelerate you to "Hell realm". In such situation, you suffer many pressure from your debtors and peers.  
Well, as you can see, Samsara may in our daily life. In order to getting rid of this realm in our daily life, we need a very strong wisdom to understand them, in such ways that we will not be deceived by illustion yet will be able to control our desire. That's all for today. More fascinating articles and sharing will be updated from time to time in Xaivier Blog.
