Amongst "new age" thinkers, reincarnation is almost taken for granted. This belief which had it's origins in the Eastern religions, has spread across the world. The offer of a second chance has seemed to many orthodox Christians to be fairer than the concept of one chance, and you might miss out! Many have even discovered that the early Christians also toyed with reincarnation, until it was decided that it was not in accordance with the faith. There is a lot of apparently solid "evidence" of past lives that lends credence to these beliefs.
Some have even pointed to the Bible where they find
"evidence" that Jesus referred to a past life. Until the
Padgett and Samuels messages were delivered, there was no solid
revelation to support the notion that reincarnation is false. In
these messages, Jesus asserts that it is false, and offers physical
evidence why it cannot be accomplished. That leaves only the question
of why so many people report past lives, some of which can be validated.
We are told that yes these lives are valid, but it was not the life
of the mortal doing the remembering. It is a memory implanted by
a spirit keen to advance these beliefs amongst mortals. What is
certain is that many many spirits still believe in reincarnation
- but none of these are Celestials! This is simply because those
mortals who die believing in reincarnation, continue with that belief
for many years. It follows that there would be many such spirits,
and that none of these would be particularly advanced.
I have long accepted that the source of past life
information received by mortals is attendant spirits who have had
those experiences. However, reading "Letters
from the Light" indicates that spirits are able to recall
past life information themselves. This suggests a more complex explanation
is required. I currently suspect that it is partly a function of
the way that mind is constructed, coupled with the fact that all
thoughts continue to exist as realities, and can
be studied. It is possible to trace a thought by context, owner,
subject, etc. The mind it seems is probably not as personal as we
consider, and there may be many aspects of mind that can be shared
or accessed by others. In addition there is probably a Universal
Mind, or perhaps what is called the Akashic Record that holds a
memory off all that has been experienced by humans. I have now written
a book on the subject, and as a result I have removed the free pdf
that I used to offer here. That is partly because I may choose to
seek a publisher, and I suspect offering it free electronically
will be an issue. A review of the book is
on this page.
Once you realise that the spirit heavens are a place
of continuous progression, there
is very little point in reincarnating to start from scratch again.
Indeed this is what seems eventually to convince those spirits who
do believe in reincarnation - they do not want to return to earth,
as they realise how far they have progressed, and cannot see any
sense in such a cycle. Those who believe we have had many, some
say hundreds of past lives, should realise that the limited progression
that mankind has achieved over the decades has been more material
than spiritual. There is thus little evidence to show for the "value"
of reincarnation in actually progressing mankind. Contrast that
with Helen Padgett's progression in spirit, and of reaching the
status of a Christ Spirit in under a
year, as also the feedback
from James Padgett himself, indicating he too achieved this
inside two years post death.
One should probably note that a belief in reincarnation is not
a dangerous belief, in the sense of endangering ones spiritual progress,
provided that the individual is not relying on a second chance to
get things right. One cannot of course believe in eternal hell and
reincarnation at the same time, but since hell is not eternal, this
is probably a good thing. But many that we have come across who
believe in reincarnation appear to have discarded any belief in
there being any souls in darkness. That might not be such a good
thing. As the bible clearly tells us, we will pay for our sins to
the last farthing.
Recently a group of folks who also follow the Padgett Messages
have suggested a number of things. Firstly, that the
message from Jesus where he explains why it is physically impossible
to reincarnate, is capable of being stretched to allow for the possibility
that this may become possible in the future. Secondly, they also
suggest that they are reincarnations of many of the apostles,
including also the Master himself. So they claim there is now
a flesh and blood Jesus walking the Earth, accompanied by Mary Magdalene
and some others. However they do not teach that reincarnation is
a method of progression, quite the contrary. They claim one must
reach the 22nd Sphere to be capable of returning as a teacher.
