Here are a few thoughts on avoiding reincarnation (rebirth).
Many of us have performed Daily Spiritual Practice (DSP) for decades and are still not fully established in Samādhi. The test for being fully established is passed if we remain conscious while the body is asleep (witnessing sleep). This experience still eludes many very devoted spiritual practitioners.
To understand this, let’s first examine humans in a very basic way.
“It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.”
~1 Corinthians 15:44
Every human being actually has 3 fundamental bodies: gross, subtle & causal.
The ‘gross body’ is of less importance than the subtle body, which along with mind, intellect and ego control the gross body.
We spend years and even decades performing Daily Spiritual Practice to achieve enlightenment. Basic enlightenment is an established state of Samādhi which, in truth, is only the beginning of the development of even higher states of consciousness.
But, ‘established Samādhi’ is good enough to avoid rebirth!
It is curious as to why we are not yet established after so much practice? I submit that we will find the cause in our Causal body.
Because we currently live in a transitional period between Kali-yuga (darkness) and 10,000 Years of Golden Age (light) — virtually all human beings are addressing only a sub-set of their accumulated karmas (good & bad). The reduced number of karmas are reflected in the Causal body — the causation-controller of each human life.
Vedic astrology and yagyas are acting upon this sub-set of karmas, not the full-set.
What happens is that at some point many of us begin to feel ‘diminishing returns’ from our DSP and may lose interest and either stop or move on to something else.
The issue is probably not the teaching or the teacher. I submit that the issue is our hidden, unaddressed karmas.
What to do?
We would think that our Causal body would be fixed and therefore, we could be headed for reincarnation — to have another ‘go’ hopefully with a more favourable or final set of karmas.
The Golden Age will take up to 500 years to settle into what we would recognize as ‘Heaven on Earth’. That may add up to a few lifetimes for some of us.
This transition period will likely be characterized by unrest due to climate change (more water, less land, competition for resources and possibly even war), Demographics are a complicated subject but suffice to say that there will be fewer young people and more older people with no one to take care of them in most countries. Those countries that have ‘social safety nets’ will be challenged to keep up with the expense. Also, as more Daily Spiritual Practitioners do come into higher states of consciousness and ascend, Heaven will reciprocate and descend more and more on Earth. And, Heaven is not a democracy! Imagine the transition away from democracy to some form of benevolent monarchy and the amount of time and adjustment that may take.
Shouldn’t we want everyone to avoid reincarnation? Are we to believe that these transitional forces are simply going to disappear any time soon?
“For we know that if the earthly tent which is our house is torn down, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.” — 2 Corinthians 5:1
“I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know — God knows.” 2 Corinthians 12:2
The seven worlds begin with Bhur-loka (Earth); Then, Bhuvar-loka (2), Swar-loka (3), Mahar-loka (4), Janar-loka (5), Tapar-loka (6), Brahma-loka (7). These are the Vedic sounds (sounds not of a human) for these worlds.
Prophets, saints, apostles, ascended-ones, enlightened-ones and devas inhabit worlds 4 through 7. Infrequently, on special assignment, are any of these inhabitants reborn to Earth. Swar-loka (3) is a temporary paradise (Heaven) from which souls are reborn to continue their learning on Earth.
Now, on to address your hidden karmas, resolving them and having you ascend to higher worlds permanently.
Become a Devi Bhakta (devotee: worshipper)!
- Learn and Practice the Gayatri Mantra
- Take the full ‘Yoga of Devotion’ course — read this page for more info
Here are two of the many benefits of the Yoga of Devotion course
- First and foremost you will develop a personal relationship with Devi!
Mother’s Love Conquers All
2. Your heart will soften into this Divine Love relationship naturally.
No mood-making, wishful thinking or delusion is required
Devi wants a relationship with you, a relationship based on Love and Truth — as your partner.
As you naturally come into this relationship you will begin to notice Divine guidance and wisdom coming to you.
For example, Mother Divine will do almost anything for you as Her devotee and child. She, alone, knows your full story and ALL your karmas. Mother Divine knows how to gently and safely resolve them.
This is how your hidden karmas will be resolved and how you can avoid rebirth.
Don’t give up on your evolutionary life!
