An Early Spiritual Ideal(Spirituality 101)

March 14, 2011

Let me cut to the quick with some of what I’ve been talking about.  How can we all get to heaven?   Why do some people suffer?   Why do some people succeed?   What contains Science, Philosophy, Religion, Law and Love.  Reincarnation does.   It’s Science in that it is Truth, a main objective of science. It’s philosophy in that it’s a way to live(a way to succeed). It’s a religion in that it is of God and from God(God being patient love and Toughlove).  It’s law because it is  just, equitable, constant,and unchangeable.    It is Love because God created Time and Space for mankind to exercise” free will” while all the time ever holding out our reunion with the Him, the Creator. Again not by force, but by our own will and choice.   

Reincarnation is the belief that we return to earth in life after life until we have achieved the God Consciousness.  Until we have learned the Golden Rule.  We return to learn from our past mistakes and grow by our spiritual understandings. 

For example if an individual was prejudice of certain minorities, wouldn’t  it be justice to return as a member of  that minority. Wouldn’t it be just for that person to experience the same prejudice that the individual created in their prior life.  Not as punishment but as God’s classroom.  This is called Karma.   We reap what we sow.

If we as individuals help one another and care for one another don’t we reap those good fortunes in the next life.  Are those favored people lucky or just spiritually wise and experienced?

Like all great things it’s simple and complicated.  It takes awhile for an individual to wrap their head around such a grand idea.

Karma is not like Deus ex machina, the “God out of a box” that solves all problems instantly.   He doesn’t come down and rap you on the knuckles.   Instead it’s more like a Mandala or like looking through a child’s Kaleidoscope.  No matter what way you turn the dial it forms a perfect and symmetrical design.  Our lives move by design.  Each of our lives are like that.  Each of our lives are like a fantastic diamond.  Some are rough and some are polished.

Spirituality 102 coming soon!!!

 “I’m a great believer in the hereafter, in karma, in reincarnation. It does make sense. I believe that God is not just a law-giver, but a creative artist. The greatest of all. And what characterises artists is that they want to redo their work. Maybe it didn’t come off perfectly, so they want to see it done again, and improved. Reincarnation is a way for God to improve his earlier works.” —Norman Mailer
