One of the greatest laws of the universe, with the help of which evolution takes place on Earth, is the law of reincarnation. It is difficult to imagine how life could have evolved if there was no such law.
Even the amount of knowledge within the secondary school will be enough to make sure that life develops, that the forms of plants, animals and humans improve over time. This transformation is the result of the actions of metapsychosis, that is, the wise law of reincarnation. This law forces the core of the human spirit, by its nature immortal and eternal, to plunge into an endless series of temporary mortal shells. At the same time, the improvement of life and the improvement of the forms in which life dwells are achieved.
A single, without reincarnation, human life, if it really were such, would become an absurd dissonance in the general harmony of cosmic life, where the change of life phenomena alternates with an immutable regularity. The change of day and night, seasons, warmth and cold, flowering and withering, birth and death - everything is necessary and expedient.
As oriental mentors argued back in antiquity, only ignorance and denial of the basic cosmic laws by modern man led him to the ridiculous conclusion that he is outside the general course of world life, that he is excluded from the harmonious system of the universe, from the regularity of causes and effects and is in conditions of chance. and the senselessness that his one-time life is a mere accident, and his inevitable death is a terrifying senselessness.
The independence of human existence is impossible, therefore, like other animals and plant organisms on earth, he is subject to the processes of evolution and reincarnation. The essence of the law of reincarnation lies in the fact that a person with an endless series of successive lives on the physical plane of being acquires more and more complete life experience, which, in the intervals between incarnations, passes into the character of a person and his abilities. With these and that abilities and this character, which was created in previous lives, a person comes into a new life, while any new life begins from the stage of development at which a person stopped in a previous life. It turns out that any life is a lesson, or a task that must be completed. If a person was successful in solving the task assigned to him, he moves faster in his evolution, if he is less successful, he will have to return many times to the same conditions, to the same environment in which he found himself before, without achieving success …
According to numerous eastern teachings, on every planet, including our Earth, a person must complete seven small circles through seven races, that is, one in each of the races and through seven, multiplied by seven branches. Thus, it turns out that everyone must reincarnate at least 343 times. The goal of the experience of numerous human lives is to reveal the various sides of our consciousness, to fully reveal the strength, beauty and greatness hidden in us, which the cosmic substance, the One Life, has endowed each of us with. In our present state, we are all unfinished creatures subject to change due to the law of evolution.
The changes associated with the law of evolution, although inevitable, to some extent depend on the person himself. A person's desires and the presence of his free will are crucial in creating his destiny. This is not to say that the purpose is associated only with the course of evolution, and a person is just a ball of fate. Such a statement would be a gross mistake.We ourselves determine our purpose in space. To say otherwise is to separate us from this single cosmos and return to the path of distorted truths.
What happens to the immortal soul of a person in the process of a new incarnation? The immortal soul, consisting of matter of a higher mental plane, after the expiration of its period of stay in Paradise, if we start from the familiar Christian terminology, having descended to a lower mental level, begins to create a mental body, or a body of thought, from it. When the mental body is built, together with it the soul descends into the astral level, where the astral body or the body of desires is built, with the help of which the newly incarnated one will express his emotions and passions. Further, the etheric double is built from the matter of the physical level. The etheric double is an exact copy of the future physical body, or, which would be more correct, its original, since it exists before the physical body, which develops in a newly born person in the form in which the etheric original exists.
When all of the enumerated shells are created, the time for the birth of a person comes. A highly developed person who lives with a higher consciousness chooses a family in which he will be born. For undeveloped people who do not believe in immortality, who do not know about the continuity of life, this issue is resolved at the level of One Life. It is she who determines the family and the conditions in which an underdeveloped person should be born, guided by those desires and aspirations that a person discovered in his previous life.
The physical body, or the body of actions, is given to a person by his parents. Parents can pass on to him only physical inheritance - the characteristic features of the race and nation in which a person is born again. He brings the rest into a new life himself, because his personality has been formed over the centuries during all previous lives. New life on Earth is given to him in order for him to improve his individuality, to add something positive to the "bowl of accumulations." This is precisely the purpose of all previous and subsequent reincarnations.
The law of reincarnation is multifaceted and has many different manifestations, one of which is karma, or the law of cause and effect, understood in everyday life as “fate” or “fate”. In the concepts of "fate" or "fate" for an ordinary person there is something blind, fatal. For knowledgeable people, the law of karma is as understandable and "systemic" as the laws of physics or state acts such as the civil code are for ordinary people.
In the East, the law of karma is also called the law of retribution, or retribution, which fully reflects its essence. Retribution, if we start from the common sense of the word, happens only for something and can be either a consequence of some reason in the past, or the result of an act committed in the past.
Every action, every word and every thought is noted in the corresponding worlds of causes, which will all invariably and inevitably lead in the same worlds to the corresponding consequences returned to a person either in the form of suffering and punishment, or in the form of joy, luck and happiness.
The reward for their transgressions is not given to people by a perfect being - God, whom one could ask for, but by a blind law that does not possess either heart or feelings, which is simply impossible to persuade. All that is required of everyone is to strictly abide by the law. A person can dispose of the law in his favor, only by obeying it, or make it his worst enemy, violating its precepts.
A religiously-minded person can pray to his God from morning until evening, he can repent of his sins, breaking his forehead and bowing down to earth, but he will not change his fate one iota by this, since the fate of a person is made up of his actions and thoughts.The law of karma will bring corresponding results, and these results will not in the least depend on the number of bows, on repentance, or on anything else. Thus, the law of karma and the law of reincarnation together create human evolution, being the engines upward to perfection. Knowledge of these laws is as necessary for people to develop spirituality as food and breath are for physical existence.
Human life takes place simultaneously in three worlds: in the visible physical and invisible astral and mental. In each of these worlds, a person carries out his activities and, accordingly, creates his karma. On the physical level, he creates his karma by actions, on the astral - by desires, on the mental - by thoughts. And common to all types of karma is the fact that every cause causes an effect in the same area, in the same world.
Good and evil sown in the physical realm return in the form of good or evil in the physical plane. "Threads" of karma stretch from the highest level - mental - to the lowest - physical. They are intertwined not only with the people with whom we currently live, but also with those with whom we have lived and with whom we will live. The complexity of karma is aggravated by the fact that, while paying off old debts, we are constantly making new ones, for which we will also have to pay off someday.
The ancients argued that in every life a person can extinguish that part of the old karma that overtakes him in this incarnation. Of course, he immediately begins a new karma, but with an expanded consciousness and purification of thinking. The karma generated by it will already be of the highest quality. The old karma will no longer be so scary, since the purified aura will react completely differently to karmic blows.
One should not think that karma, once created, must certainly be eliminated to the end. By unrestrained striving for perfection, a person can overtake his karma, and she will not be able to catch up with him. Only a person who has stopped in his development will receive a full "shower" of karma.
Karma is created not only by each person individually, but also by various kinds of collectives. In addition to individual karma, a person can have family, group, party, national or even state karma. Individual karma, of course, is the main one, it affects the repayment of all other types of karma. By harming or helping oneself, a person harms or helps others, therefore, individual karma cannot be separated from its other types, and a person's fate in group karma is the result of individual characteristics.
Group karma is formed by actions and aspirations to achieve some goals of a group of people - a family, a party … Everyone who took part in the formation of this kind of karma will have to meet not only with their opponents, whom they have caused some harm, but also among themselves to unravel those knots that were once tied together.
A logical and logical question arises: what should be the actions so that the results are positive and the person does not create bad karma for himself? Maybe you just need to do only good deeds and honestly fulfill your duties? Alas, this issue cannot be easily resolved. Of fundamental importance is not only how we performed our actions, but also the motives of these activities that guided us. You can do many things useful for other people, but if the motives were not honest, then the activity itself loses its value.
He who helps his neighbor not for the sake of love, not for the sake of alleviating his suffering, but for the sake of vanity and the desire to hear the praise of his kindness, binds himself. Of course, gratitude and praise for kindness may follow, but there should not be such a motive in the first place. Even one who does good deeds in order to earn the favor of God, in order to then go to Paradise, binds himself.A person will incarnate until he learns to do his job without personal motives, until he understands that the work should be for the sake of work, and not for the sake of its beneficial for the worker himself. Lack of interest in the results of your work is the main condition for creating good karma. But since work without any motive would simply turn into hard labor, it is necessary to say about the only motive that does not bind a person and does not create bad karma. This sole motive is activities for the benefit of evolution and for the common good.
Any work is valuable insofar as it lacks personal motives, since the presence of such motives always creates karma. This can be found in the Bible as well. In the Gospel of Matthew, the following words are attributed to Christ: "What is the use of a man if he gains the whole world, but damages his soul?" What is this if not an indication that the desire to acquire material wealth, that is, personal motives, bring harm to a person.
When a person can accept into consciousness the fact that all types of karma are his own generation, that his whole life, both earthly and posthumous, is the result of his karma, that he exclusively creates his own destiny and his own evolution, only then he embark on a path that brings him closer to a true understanding of the foundations of Being.
