Reincarnation is rather a topic that requires in-depth attention. Be you a Wicca, Pagan, Kabbalist, Mystic, Hindu, Buddhist or the like, we all possesses a soul one time or another. There have being series of ideas and believes from various school of thoughts on this subject.
For instance, Christians in general, do not believe in reincarnation and others who believe, has different views to this subject. This makes it somewhat confusing for the layman to comprehend absolutely.
Reincarnation is not when you die, and because you failed in your responsibilities here on earth, therefore, one must return to correct them.
How one lives here on earth, bounds or frees your soul. How one is able to control and govern their desire and wants as the case may be, counts and plays a prominent role in ones spiritual evolution or ones degeneration.
Most school of thoughts, taught their followers that, when one fails here on earth and one dies, it is simply possible you are re-prepared in the astral world, to come back to correct these mistakes again here on earth.
Reincarnation is not really as pleasant as it is being treated by these people. It is not a pleasant affair that one needs be happy over as most people even claim they learnt from their masters.
There are astral masters that are ready and willing to prepare the student for his extra wasted time journey back to earth. One would also be the judge of when and how, what family you think would satisfy your goals on earth. but the fact remains that, the world that is easy now as it may seem then, might be severe, in this time when this soul is ready to return.
If we compare the life of the then ancient times to the present, you would make out the difference that i am trying to pot ray here.
I have also heard personally, people still alive claiming to have themselves already reincarnated by another member of their family, how is this possible? What an absurd knowledge.
How possible can a living soul control another soul at the same life? This is only possible by G-d the creator and elevator of souls, he is the soul in souls that makes souls what they are. Reincarnation is a kind of punishment for a soul that fails in its duties while he was here on earth. He allowed his wants for pleasure to becloud his judgement, so he must pay. For the flesh fights against the spirit and the spirits against the flesh. There are qualities of the flesh and the spirit and i will state some of them here for clarity purposes;
Now for the works of the flesh (body), adultery, fornications, uncleanneness, hate, lies, quarrels, fighting, gossips, envying one another, murders, drug addiction, drunkenness.
While for the spirit – soul is, love, joy, kindness, peace, longsuffering with one another (display of love) meekness, humbleness, goodness, honesty, trustworthy, believes, gentleness etc.
Freedom of will that G-d accorded man, of course applies to his daily needs and satisfactions in general. when one hates his fellow man and carries this hatred in mind until his death, this automatically results failure on the path of this person. He has dealt unjustly with his fellow man; he exhibited hate and scorn instead of love. Those that fall under this category has broken the Golden rule of love.
Jesus the Christ, we must never fail to acknowledge this great teacher in our studies, be you a Wicca or Pagan, affirmed love as the greatest essence of life “love your neighbour as yourself, love G-d with all your heart and with all your might and soul” he had said.
We know what the Christians think of anyone who does not fall under their form of worship or even if you do, you must come under their denomination, otherwise your soul will roast in hell fire (Funny).
On the cross of his crucifixion the master Jesus Christ continued to affirm seriously on love, he had hammered so much on love. He asked for forgiveness on his tormentors even at the point of his dying on the tree where he was hanged.
Any society or group of persons, religious bodies even individuals, that scorn love in their fold, should be regarded as dead. Such groups and meet ups has nothing to offer. It all starts with love and through love only must one aspire to the great G-d or goddess.
In Wicca magic (Modern Witchcraft) practice of today, this is also affirmed in their laws called the “Three fold Laws” The thunder bolt you send to destroy another would surely return back to you in three fold.
The desire, the want for extreme pleasure by material acquisition here on earth enslaves the soul, we know It quickens the soul and subject it to follies and reincarnation is retrogressive while the prime desire of the soul that enables the body is progression into the higher astral realm. It is true that all these are for a time they are limited pleasures, temporary satisfaction, the soul strives for higher ground instead, it has an ideal, to be a victor.
It is painful that the body it occupies filthy with lies, cheating, corruptions, theft immoralities etc, and this hurts her badly. The soul laments, in pain of how she returns back to the sinful unpleasant world, where she was once trapped. The soul would never be able to comprehend why the body had attached so much importance to the pleasures of this earth, what is really great about being here once again, she would imagine to herself.
It is possible that the soul might in cause of its return back, cause the body to deform, as this deformity may deprive the body of the absolute pleasure that she so enjoyed in the before life time, when all was well and good. With due respect to all who fall under this category, i do not mean to say that all deformed persons are suffering from reincarnations, but a way to clarify this study for more understanding. It is rather understandable for them also to see things from this perspective.
When it is said, we are in this world, a school of some kind to learn and gain knowledge to prepare us for the journey to the next life, it does not refer to the body but rather the soul, it needs knowledge to survive the journey to freedom and unification to his supreme source, G-d.
Why does the body need to undergo suffering and mystical sacrifices to enable it to assume spiritual perfection, One may be tempted to ask? Because the soul needs to ware the body off, that clay that encases it, to enable it reach and taste its freedom to higher grounds.
Odin the Runic god did the same, when he hung himself on the tree for 9 days to travel to the great beyond (soul travel) to gain the power of the Runic magic.
When the mind is completely trapped and enslaved on material wants and acquisitions that is a trap to the spirit- the deity that governs the soul and the soul which in turn rules and governs the body.
So humans check and balance your desire for materials wants etc.
