If you believe in reincarnation, it’s not a far stretch to believe that historical figures get a chance at another go-around. After all, if we all have past lives, why couldn’t one of those lives be someone who was world-renowned. In fact, most people would find it pretty cool to learn that in a past life they were somebody BIG, like an Egyptian queen or a political hero.
However, there are some figures that few people would want to have their past lives associated with. One of those figures is Adolf Hitler, perhaps the biggest villain in the world’s history.
However, interestingly a number of web sites that deal with reincarnation have been buzzing lately and raising the possibility that Hitler may have returned in a new life, this time belonging to business man and U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Those who argue that Trump is the reincarnation of Hitler point out that Trump was born 14 months after Hitler’s death. Adolf Hitler killed himself April 30, 1945, and Donald Trump was born June 14, 1946. Some reincarnation believers say that it takes about a year for a soul to return to another body. (Others say it typically takes a number of years. In fact, seven years is often given as a common timeframe.)
Another thing that believers point out about Trump is that apparently he had some kind of fascination with Hitler. A Vanity Fair article reported that his former wife Ivana said that Trump kept a book of Hitler’s speeches in the cabinet by his bed. Talk about light reading!
Then there are the similar views. Each man had the bright idea to get rid of an entire group of people. Hitler wanted to banish the Jews; Trump wants to banish Muslims. And each has managed to cobble together the support of people who feel marginalized and angry. Recently, the New York Times’ first profile of Hitler was re-published online. Check out some of the similarities.
Some believe that when a soul doesn’t complete a task in a lifetime, that soul may reincarnate in a body and life that allows it to continue to work toward that goal. Whether you believe in reincarnation or not, it’s worth paying attention to the similarities between these two men. Lessons can be learned from history, and most of us don’t ever want a repeat of the pain that Hitler brought to the world.
