Are We Dead Or Alive?

are we dead or alive?
we see ourselves as alive, but are we truly alive?
do all of us have souls?
look at people, look into their eyes, look at them individually.
if they seem to have a certain glow about them.
if their eyes have innocence and strong emotions wthin always.
they posess a soul, but if they have a soul, they have a destiny[dharma], and once they die, the truly become alive, their soul escapes their body and can wander the world, heaven, hell, earth, whatever they desire, but perhaps if their destiny isnt meet they are reborn to a new body[reincarnation], to try again, and perhaps if they have lived a life of sin and they have guilt burried within they will be punished mbut if they have been noble and true they may recieve their rewards[karma]
this is the way of life for most but not all, for some people are alive but they arent, they havent become one with their heart, mind, body and soul, and they havent had desires or thought, and within they are dead and once their body dies, their cycle ends.
