A Soul Comes to the Earth Many Times
A soul ascends — by the stages of growth — to the Unity with the Subtlest Light.
Each human soul makes its journey to life on the material plane many times and then returns to the worlds of disembodied life. The existence in the intangible eons allows a mature soul to look back at its past in order to understand the results of its life in the body and start longing to correct its errors. And then a new journey to the world of dense bodies is planned, and its new incarnation takes place.
Most of the embodied souls forget about their lives without bodies. Such is the Intention of God, since the memory about the past mistakes or achievements may be too heavy for the soul. Only the Great Souls know Their past and present, and can see Their possible future.
Just near the Great Threshold, God opens to a worthy soul the knowledge about what was significant in its past incarnations. Then the reunification with Kundalini takes place, and the experience and strength of the past get connected with the present so that the soul can overcome the future steps of development, one of which is the cognition of the Creator and Mergence with Him.
Yet it is necessary for anyone to be aware of the fact that the soul traverses a long way consisting of different incarnations during its evolutionary ascent.
“Wheel of existence”, from birth — to death, from death — to a birth in a new body, is a necessary and inevitable circle. Without the development in the different lives in the bodies, it is not possible to gain Freedom and Perfection.
In the intangible eons of hell and paradise, as well as in the intermediate grayish astral plane — souls live between incarnations.
After the separation from their bodies, marvelous and blissful states of paradise await those who live in accordance with the laws of God, who do only good and are stable in the sublime, gentle, harmonious, joyful and loving states.
On the contrary, hell awaits those vicious people who live in the emotions of anger and hatred. Still this state does not last forever: it is just necessary to help them to recognize evil in themselves and also, perhaps, to persuade them to start a different life in their next incarnations.
The reincarnations of people are controlled by God. The Higher Justice determines what destiny every soul will have in its next incarnation.
The souls do not reincarnate only in the human bodies. Before that, each soul was incarnated in the bodies of the plants and then of the animals. Only after this, it becomes mature enough to be born in a human body.
Everyone should know that before being born as a human, he or she lived in the bodies of the plants and then of the animals. It is important to know this in order to understand the fact that any plant or animal that we see is like a soul-child, growing and maturing to be born then as a human.
Young souls growing in the bodies of plants and animals also pass through their stages of growth and development; that is why, we should treat them with love!
When we need to use plants, we should do it with care and without causing them unnecessary harm!
We should understand that there is a necessity for people who have risen above the level of animals-predators to avoid killing animals and eating their flesh. To follow the principle of the “killing-free” nutrition is one of the essential conditions for a pure and ethical life. All people must know this!
