It is one of the first spiritual maxims many encounter upon awakening from the dream world of consensus reality; and is intended to highlight the connections between the macrocosm and microcosm.
We all have a good enough grasp of the
microcosm, that's us, here in this place where getting a grasp of
the macrocosm is what the spiritual journey is all about.
This Realm of Permanence is where we all
originate from, and return to; it is Source.
Source wanted to know if we could be
stranded here on this primitive, negative, low-density,
low-vibration planet with absolutely no memory ~ and still find our
way back home to source. This transmigration of souls would play out
over thousands of generations, with each of the participants having
multiple and successive lifetime experiences, called incarnations.
When it comes time for another
incarnation on earth, only the thinker and doer aspects incarnate
into the physical body, the Knower aspect remains in the realm of
permanence functioning as a sort of guide and lifeguard, and we call
this our Higher Self.
With each lifetime we have the opportunity to learn more, remember more, to become more. The reason for all this is of course to attain enlightenment, and then return home, with everyone else, on the homeward leg of this great soul migration. Because one cannot attain enlightenment from a single, lone perspective; we are sort of required to experience life from all perspectives before we are done.
This means that in the fullness of time every one of us will experience multiple lives in each gender, from both ends of every polarity, with a generous helping of everything in between.
We will know male and female, wealth and
poverty, peace and violence, sickness and health; and when we have
experienced life through each of these perspectives, enlightenment
will be within our grasp.
There are of course others who also travel with us from one incarnation to another; or drop by every other lifetime or so. I just call them the chorus of unseen friends because kindred spirits tend to travel together. Some of them you recognize immediately, and may even share memories of previous sojourns together.
Others might not be incarnate just now, but stay close to keep tabs on us, and we call them guides or maybe angels, because we can feel their presence.
Some become obsessed with the search for
their soulmate, even to the detriment of their spiritual progress.
It is best to not become overly obsessed with finding your soulmate,
for several reasons.
If you really want the challenge and
exhilaration of a soulmate level relationship then you must yourself
already possess the same qualities and attributes you seek in a life
partner. Magnetism, it works every time!
We didn't come here to be spectators. We are here to act on behalf of humanity and earth as agents of change; to restore balance and freedom. We're not born obnoxious, greedy and violent - those things are bred and programmed into us to prevent us from remembering who we really are, and what we're here to accomplish.
Each of us incarnates here with two objectives.
As for the "time" between incarnations; it is divided into twelve different states.
Immediately following the transition called death, the spirit moves sequentially through six after death states. The first of these is a kind of recess, a time to acclimate to the transition, a time to let the memory begin to recover.
Following the rest period there are five more after death states to traverse, having to do with reviewing the just ended life, and assessing the lessons learned, and so forth. The next six states are pre-birth states; and as such are geared to assist in preparing for another incarnation.
It is within these six phases that
we choose what gender we will be, what race, who our
parents will be, and the things we are going back to learn.
Other times groups will group incarnate for the sheer fun and challenge of finding and being with one another time and again.
There is no set, or required number of incarnations we must experience. Most of us will require a good many incarnations to learn our lessons and reach enlightenment; others will get it sooner, and move on.
You see, it's all about breaking
the cycle of reincarnation, and moving on to higher vibes and
a better neighborhood.
The other snag can be just as bad as a quack; and that is letting your ego go off tripping about who you were in a past life. Yes, many of us were at one time living much more interesting lives, perhaps some even were people of historical record. Logic alone insists that we couldn't all have been kings, queens, scholars, artists, and musicians.
Somebody had to also be the criminals, slaves, murderers, and dregs of society, and before we're done, we'll each play all the roles. Makes no difference today unless the person in question can apply the lessons learned in that past life, to their current incarnation.
That's it in a tiny nutshell, the only
true value in knowing of your past lives is if you bring forward the
things you learned from them.
Let's say you spent an incarnation as someone who did violence to others, your karma then would be to live another incarnation on the receiving end of violence, so your soul has the experience of both perspectives. If on the other hand you lived a life of always putting the needs of others before your own; in another life, your needs would all be met quite easily.
These days we know the same energy by
other names, like poetic justice, or what goes around comes around
but regardless what label you put on it, karma always prevails.
Usually karma takes a while to catch up with us, which is really a pity because often the cause and effect aren't immediately recognized.
Sometimes however karma acts more like a mouse trap, and comes smashing down instantly, kind of like instant messaging from the universe. It's very interesting that instant karma expresses primarily in one of two ways.
When a soul has balanced the karmic scales while incarnated, then acquires new karma, it tends to come back around very quickly, which is a good thing.
In this world of free will and destiny, when one commits a crime, sin or other wrong-doing the punishment is the act of wrong doing itself. Source does not concern itself with revenge, or vengeance; we came up with that all on our own.
Seeking revenge upon others for their
misdeeds only serves to amplify and extend the karmic cycle. Revenge
is like drinking a bottle of poison thinking it will kill your enemy
and never results in a positive outcome.
We are riding the cusp of humanities evolution this very moment, and one of the realities within our grasp is the one where all are liberated from the cycles of reincarnation and karma, forever! Sound good to you?
Our knower aspects aren't going to just hand this to us on a silver platter, that's not how it works. Just thinking isn't enough, we must act upon our thoughts, and Do that which is necessary to ensure reaching our desired destination. That is, after all why the thinker and doer incarnated into physicality.
The problem is that while asleep within
consensus reality, we cannot hear the knower aspect of our soul, and
are essentially cut off from higher self and spirit.
"I do not believe in a fate
that falls on men however they
that falls on them unless they
Likewise each of us activates an individual destiny each time we incarnate in this place. Only when we understand that we create our reality with our thoughts, can we begin to understand that we also are the masters of our personal destiny.
Perhaps the idea was expressed best by Sarah Connor in the Terminator franchise:
This isn't new or even metaphysically based knowledge; philosophers and theologians have always known that the reality we see manifest originates in our very thoughts.
Here is how it works:
Everything is energy
We do not consider our thoughts as being so powerful, but they are, especially the negative and hurtful ones we so often strengthen further by speaking them aloud.
When our thoughts are negative or
disempowering that energy is programmed into everything that thought
touches, and if left unbalanced will also taint the resulting
reality. It is not our nature to think hurtful or diminishing
thoughts about ourselves and others; we do so because that is what
we have been conditioned and trained to do over countless
By not choosing a destiny for yourself, someone else will be happy to provide one for you, rest assured. If you change your beliefs, your reality changes accordingly: it has to because it has no choice, but you do.
The universe rearranges itself to
accommodate your picture of reality. If you think you are powerless
against "fate" and destined to fail; the universe assumes you must
need those lessons to fulfill yourself, and gives them to you.
If you do your part you will see tangible results because it works, it has to.
Further more, every time you repeat that
little thought exercise you are eroding old negative neural pathways
in the brain, and re-wiring it with new, positive polarity thoughts.
When you see how easy it is to change your reality, you'll be
doing it all the time. When that happens, teach it to others.
My friend who rented me the living space, had a previous agreement with a fellow named Steve from nearby Pennock Island; allowing him to moor his speedboat alongside every day while he was at work in town. Steve was a boat person, so I was seldom aware when he crossed back and forth to the dock, that was a bonus.
So was the fact that his reserved mooring kept the fishing boats from tying up along side my home. Kind of a symbiotic relationship.
I happened to be out on the back deck one morning when Steve arrived. He grins this big smile with about a thousand perfect teeth and tells me he has something for me. I invited him in for coffee but he declined saying he was running late. He hands me a bundle wrapped in a single sheet of buckskin leather, saying it was a loan and that he would be back for it before the salt air could harm it.
Wrapped up in this leather was a rather large and obviously old book, titled "Thinking and Destiny" by Harold W. Percival.
The book was subtitled "Being the Science of Man". At over a thousand pages, and with the first chapter after the introduction being "the purpose and plan of the universe" - I was hooked!
The following day I went to the city library to find the book. They not only didn't have it, they'd never heard of it. There was a nice bookstore in town so I tried there as well with the exact same result. I'd brought all the traditional information on the book, it's publisher, library of congress number, the works and had to settle for ordering a copy.
Before returning home to continue
reading, I picked up a couple of notebooks to compile some
information in, not knowing how long I'd have the book or if I could
find a copy of my own.
The successive printings occurred every
five to eight years thereafter, again each in limited numbers. The
following year there was another printing, and I was able to get my
own copy. Since that time the printings have come more frequently
with larger numbers printed; and currently the PDF file is on the
publishers website (see below link.)
I pass this along for the same reason
the book is now published on the web; there isn't time for you to
find it the way I did.
If you wait to see what your destiny will end up being, I promise, you won't like what you get.
Get up off your spiritual best
intentions and start carving your destiny; we must program the
picture of our personal and planetary destiny into the unified field
before the universe can manifest it for us, so get cracking!!
