If one lives life to the fullest then there will be no more need for rebirth...! So how does one live life to the fullest? Buddha outlined a path called the Eightfold Path... For example, doesn't it follow that by not cheating (lying, coveting... etc,) a person takes all the steps required to accomplish a goal. To ask why one act is applauded and another isn't applauded is immaterial; reward for an act and no reward for an act are the same. Any act is important only because its accomplishemnt is the fulfillment of life. If birth requires the accomplishment of life, then to accomplish life is to accomplish birth. Both done, the soul's requirement is met... is it not? Once lived to it's fullest... life need not be repeated?
