Zane's Questions - Section 2

 If you are just joining this Zane's Questions series, please go here first to read about Zane, her questions, and why I felt inspired to answer them.

Section 2 - 6 Questions

1.  Would you prefer to be smart or happy?

I don't know that I believe that happiness is a tangible thing in that I believe it is fleeting and not a permanent state. However, I would choose to be happy. I don't value people by their intelligence and I don't value myself that way either. 

2.  Do you believe in past lives?

Yes, completely. Since I believe in reincarnation, past lives is an inherent part of that. I believe we are made up of what I will call body - spirit - soul. Only one of those are reincarnated. The bodies change, and the thing that is responsible for personality when combined with the other two, spirit, changes. The thing with eternal essence is the soul. That is the inhabitant across lifetimes.

3.  Have you ever cheated on a test?

 No. I have always felt strongly about cheating in any capacity.

4.  If you had to change your name, what would you change it to?

I've changed my name before. That is how I have my current name. If I had to change it again, I would change it to Pnina. I love how that sounds. It means Pearl in Hebrew.

5.  What would be the title of your memoir be?

Tripping Over Myself - A Memoir of Forgotten Times

6.  If you had a time machine, would you go back in time or into the future?

My inclination is neither but if I had to choose, it would be the future. My past is filled with too many struggles that I do not wish to either relive or have to remake choices.
