“All truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed, then it is violently attacked, then it is held to be self evident.”
What is reincarnation? Wikipedia introduces it as follows,
“Reincarnation is believed to occur when the soul or spirit, after the death of the body, comes back to Earth in a newborn body. This phenomenon is also known as transmigration of the soul.
“This doctrine is a central tenet within the majority of Indian religious traditions, such as Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism; the Buddhist concept of rebirth is also often referred to as reincarnation. The idea was also fundamental to some Greek philosophers and religions as well as other religions, such as Druidism and later on, Spiritism. It is also found in many small-scale societies around the world, in places such as Siberia, West Africa, North America, and Australia.
Although the majority of sects within Judaism, Christianity and Islam do not believe that individuals reincarnate, particular groups within these religions do refer to reincarnation; these groups include the mainstream historical and contemporary followers of Kabbalah, the Cathars, the Druze and the Rosicrucians. The historical relations between these sects and the beliefs about reincarnation that were characteristic of the Neoplatonism, Hermeticism, Manicheanism and Gnosticism of the Roman era, as well as the Indian religions, is unclear.”
Generally, in the Eastern traditions it is considered that all forms of life or species have souls, which is the entity who reincarnates. Previous to when an entity is ready to incarnate as a human being on Earth, the soul may have gone through a whole series of lives in order to experience various levels of existence and consciousness. The principle is that an entity may actually progress through the different species of life, gradually working their way up until they reach the human form. Of course, the body is only the covering of the soul in which it appears. The living being will continually move upward in its cycles of reincarnation until it has experienced all the main varieties of existences that the material realm has to offer. This way the living being is fully experienced in working out material desires or longings in all kinds of forms by the time it reaches the human stage. Of course, not every being may have to go through all of this.
Most christians and Muslims are being taught wrongly, as they believe in “only one life to live,” with the only alternative being heaven or eternal damnation, and therefore don’t believe in reincarnation, pre-existence or transmigration of the soul. This is primarily because of the early Church Fathers that left out references to reincarnation in the compilation of the “Holy Bible” canon in the perceived need to establish orthodoxy in the earlier centuries. Many early christians, such as the Gnostics — branded as “heretics” by the orthoidox church — taught reincarnation instead of “resurrection at the end of time,” and there is evidence Jesus taught it as well.
The early Christians taught it (reincarnation), and this can be proved by the words of Saint Gregory, Bishop of Nyssa:
“It is absolutely necessary that the soul shall be healed and purified, and if it doesn’t take place in one life on earth, it must be accomplished in future earthly lives.”
One life is not enough to “get it right” and learn and experience everything the earth plane has to offer. Only once one has been “resurrected” or “born again” or attain to self-mastery/perfection/christ-consciousness, and/or at least 51% of past-life karma has been burned off will the soul have completed it’s series of reincarnations on earth, and ascend to higher dimensions in the heavenly realms.
The Law of Karma was developed in Hinduism and Buddhism as ‘the law of cause and effect that underlies personal existence.’ This law not only dispenses suffering for wrong doing, but it also recognizes the good that the individual does as well. At the end of one’s life the law of karma comes into play. If the individual has accumulated more positive karma than negative karma, he gains a positive reward in the heavenly realms berween incarnations, or in a future lifetime. However, if he has accumulated more negative karma, he receives more suffering in the life to come.
Karma means that a human being is locked into action by the iron law of cause and effect. Past acts determine the present and the future. What a person does now results from past actions, and these present actions will determine future actions. Humanity is held hostage to a law that determines one’s present and future life without the ability to defend one’s actions. Karma dictates that “One never gets away with anything, for every act has a consequence.”.
The view of “one life to live” and “saved or be damned” is NOT divine reality at all.
The idea that a person has only one life to either become qualified to enter heaven or enter eternal damnation offers the soul no means of rehabilitation and only endless misery. This is not reasonable from a rational nor divine standpoint. The doctrine of reincarnation gives anyone ample scope to correct and re-educate himself in future births.
Jesus was also a misunderstood savior, according to how others in the bible wrote about him after his death.
Jesus did not “die for our sins.” This is a violent and silly position to hold. Why would God have to commit suicide to himself to atone for our “sins?” This is a very primitive view of God and His/Her ways, based on the old Jewish animal “sin” sacrifices. You would think we would have a more enlightened view of an all-loving God in the 21st century, yet hundreds of millions believe this. Modern day christians believe in Paul’s gospel of the bible, that you go to heaven by merely “accepting Jesus as your savior,” through blind faith, or ritualitic religion or church doctrine.
The divine reality is that the vast majority of us (90 to 95%) go to heavenly realms after death for a long or brief time (because time does not exist in the spirit realm as we know it) only to reincarnate again. Only 5 to 10%experience hellish realms after death, and they find it is only temporary; a place of purification. The gates of heaven are wide open! God has NOT condemned anyone to fry in hell. God is far too loving to allow this. Jesus came to save the LOST souls, not the found. Our natural destination and home in the afterlife is the variou levels of heavenly realms, not “hell” as many religionists would have you believe.
In fact we are under univeral salvation! That’s the good news of the true gospel I teach!
“So it is not the will of your Father in Heaven that one of these little ones should be lost” (Matthew 18:14)
“And I, when I am lifted up from the Earth, will draw all people to myself.” (John 12:32)
“All flesh shall see the salvation of God.” (Luke 3:6)
Reincarnation is taught by most Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, gnostics, jewish kabbalists, Sikhs and all ascended Masters, and a full 80% of near-death experiencers now accept reincarnation as a divine reality, regardless of what they believed before.
This goes beyond mere “belief.” Why “believe,” when you can be informed of the secret knowledge and know for certain, with evidence?
I’ve had an NDE myself. I’m also a teacher of the reality of reincarnation.
Brian A. Bain, M.A., has this to say about the 1945 discovery of the gnostic texts:
“Long considered to be heretical, ancient Gnostic Christian texts unearthed this century display compelling similarities between Gnostic conceptions of life and death and modern near-death experiences. The Gnostic texts devoted extensive tracts to what readers could expect to encounter when they died. Other passages make numerous allusions to near-death-like experiences that can be realized in this life, most notably the human encounter with a divine light. The Gnostic Christian literature gives us one more example of NDEs and similar experiences in the ancient world.”
The following is only one of the Bible passages showing Jesus teaching reincarnation to his disciples:
“And the disciples asked him, saying, “Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”
But he answered them and said, “Elijah indeed is to come and will restore all things. But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also shall the Son of Man suffer at their hand.”
Then the disciples understood that he had spoken of John the Baptist.” (Matt. 17:10-13)
In other words, reincarnated prophets.
The biblical book of Daniel also states,
“But you Daniel, go your way, for the words are to remain secret and the book sealed untill the time of the end. Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase…But you, go your way to the end, and rest; you shall rise for your reward at the end of the days.” (Daniel 12)
This was a direct referrence to reincarnation, not resurrection “from the grave.” Daniel is in the 21st century, back, resurrected, reincarnated as an incarnate holy angel and has written to book for all to read! We are at the end of the age (end of the days) and with the internet and global communications, knowledge certainly has increased! With modern automobiles and plane flight we certainly are “running to and fro!”
on wrote a book called “Twently cases suggestive of reincarnation” (must read) which offers compelling scientific evidence for reincarnation–the closest thing to “proof” we have thus far, based on cases of young children, barely able to talk, who impossibly recall extenive details of past lives.
In fact, there is compelling physical evidence for reincarnation, based on children revealing past lives, past-life regression therapy under hypnosis and unexplained physical scars left from a prior life.
Origen of Alexandria taught reincarnation in the early church, but was later branded a “hetertic” by the catholic church. He has the following to say,
“The soul has neither beginning nor end. [They] come into this world strengthened by the victories or weakened by the defeats of their previous lives.”
Edgar Cayce, a genuine modern prophet of the early 20th century, taught reincarnation as a divine reality, and affirmed gnosticism as the highet form of christianity. Just what is reincarnation according to him? It is the belief that each of us goes through a series of lifetimes for the purpose of spiritual growth and soul development. Cayce’s approach does not include the concept of transmigration, which states that it is possible for human beings to be born again as animals. From the standpoint of the Cayce material, souls only occupy human bodies through their spiritual growth and developmental process.
Cayce believed that since he was able to help people physically by his trance work then his ability must be from God. But, in 1923, Cayce began to do readings, or trance work, on individuals seeking spiritual information, and because of those sessions Cayce gained a belief in reincarnation. In his readings he was told that the Bible was not inerrant or infallible. Rather, it suppressed the teachings of reincarnation held by the early church fathers.
My own personal “proof” for reincarnation came in October 1999 in deep meditation, after years of self-purification, when God revealed to be that I was the return of Daniel of the bible. God spoke to me in an incredibly obvious, loving, velvety and firm “voiceless voice” which speaks overwhelmingly into your very soul, and said,
“Beloved, you have purified your heart. It’s now time to tell you who and what you are…You are the figure behind Daniel of the bible, and are now back in resurrected form and now an angel.”
Lesson is, don’t pay attention to bible worshipers, religionists and evangelical christians and muslims, for they seem to be clueless and ignorant of divine reality, and deny reincarnation, even though there are direct referrences to it in the bible, and the bible does not condemn reincarnation. Many of them attribute belief in reincarnation and new age spirituality to be “of the devil.” Yet “satan” does not even exist! I’ve read about 400 near death experiences and not ONCE does such a being ever appear.
I’ve never had to deal with any “devil” in my spiritual journey, except the demons of my own mind which had to be cast out before coming to the light. The devil is merely symbolic of the darker forces and nature of human beings, it’s as simple as that. Therefore cast out the demons of the mind and allow the light of God to replenish your soul–because LOVE is the way to eternal life, period. In the light there exists no darkness.
