The Law of Reincarnation
- The aim of reincarnation is the progressive
improvement of spirits (and with it mankind).
- The spirit, in purifying itself, undergoes a transformation, but
in order to effectuate this transformation, it needs the trial of
material life. In each new existence, the spirit takes a step
forward in its evolutionary progress and when it has stripped itself
of all of its impurities, it has no further need of the trials of
material life. It enters the state of happiness as a purified
- Reincarnation, in keeping with the Supreme Justice of the Creator,
is the only process that can explain the apparent inequities of
life. We suffer wherein we have committed wrongdoing. Our freewill
in this life determines our future life and our present situation is
the result of our past life. We also cannot learn or experience
everything we need to evolve to the state of a purified spirit in
only one lifetime.
- Reincarnation explains why there are geniuses and prodigies. It
also explains why all the peoples of the earth are at different
levels of intelligence and morality.
- The doctrine of Heaven and Hell goes against reason and the
Perfect Justice of the Supreme Intelligence. Why should those who
were not that good go to “Heaven”? How can the justice of a God be
reconciled with a doctrine that would condemn wrongdoers eternally
to “Hell” without hope of redemption? We forgive our own children,
would not the Creator Forgive us Infinitely and Give us the means to
improve and redeem ourselves no matter how long it took?
- Reincarnation is one of Hope - for the doors of redemption are
never closed and we alone determine through our own conduct how many
lifetimes we must fulfill. The amount of personal responsibility
involved in this process is too much for many to accept or handle.
Nevertheless, reincarnation is a universal law. Other religious
beliefs seem to provide an easy pathway to God yet still do not
answer the question, “Why does a good person suffer?” Only
reincarnation can answer this, for we do not know what faults or
crimes that “good person” may have had or committed in a past
lifetime for which now they may be atoning for, by their own
choosing, in order to spiritually and morally progress.
- The inequitable situations seemingly good people find themselves
in exist only in appearances as they are considered only from the
perspective of the present lifetime.
- If we agree that the Creator is Infinitely Just, all suffering
must have a just cause. The Creator does not punish, we do it to
ourselves through the law of cause and effect.
- Suffering can be from the immediate and obvious actions we have
committed in this lifetime.
- Suffering can be from the effects of wrongdoing we have committed
in past lifetimes. It is this last type that confuses many because
we see people suffer seemingly for no reason (example: those with
terrible diseases, born with deformities, those with mental and
emotional disorders, those born in horribly poor or violent
- It is only through the plurality of existences that we can see the
Supreme Justice of the Creator and can explain the apparent
inequities of the distribution of happiness and unhappiness upon the
- All suffering does not necessarily mean a person has a certain
fault or is expiating a wrongdoing. Sometimes a spirit has requested
a trial in material life with a particular suffering for further
purification of its soul. They elected the trial for further moral
and spiritual advancement.
- In addition, many spirits ask for difficult missions, small and/or
great, for which they will be properly compensated if they carry it
- In order to obtain merit for any trials and tribulations we
undergo and progress, we must suffer them with calm resignation as
much as possible, praying to our spirit guides and the Creator for
moral and spiritual strength to support whatever we may be going
through. Otherwise, we will have to repeat the lesson all over again
in another lifetime.
- Those spirits that keep repeating the same trials and are very
stubborn and continue to persist in wrongdoing can reincarnate in
even worse conditions then the lifetime they were previously in, in
order to correct their defects or expiate their wrongdoings.
- Material life may be compared as somewhat similar to a school were
we learn lessons and past tests at each grade level. We never
retrograde but we can mark time in the same grade and repeat the
same lesson over and over until we finally get it right. Some
spirits work faster at this then others. We all have our freewill to
do, or not to do, good or bad, and can only blame ourselves for our
actions or inactions.
