Before Christianity as we know it was formed, there were testimonials to the existence of a single Being, the Ego seated in the human heart. The concept of reincarnation was part of nearly all ancient religious teachings, including Christianity, until A.D 325 when the Roman emperor, Constantine the Great, decreed speaking about “rebirth” to be an act of heresy against the church. By A.D. 385 speaking about reincarnation was no longer a sin but also a crime punishable by death! The massacres of men, women and children who promoted the concepts of reincarnation of the soul continued well into the 15thcentury. By the 16thcentury, these concepts had been all but wiped out in Christian teachings, with the exception of a few underground mystical groups who knew life is eternal and successive human personalities are unfolding the capacity to understand the personality is not the Source of Power. Read chapter 38 - Burned at the Stake in my book for more. To solve the mystery of life and death man must let go of the fixed belief that he begins and ends in one life cycle. Reincarnation is a fact of life that was taken away from educating new straight-knowledge as it unfolds a folded pattern for man’s spiritual growth to maturity in Time cycles. God is the invisible Intelligence that has been hidden from man since the Fall of Man. We are eternal spiritual beings unfolding through each and every stage of cultural development to grow from the unknowing that God is a Living Reality, to thinking of God as someone we pray to when we need help, to the realization that we are part of God’s life. The alternation of incarnations is attested by ancient wisdom as well as the latest unfolding of new scientific straight-knowledge. The never-dying man, the Phoenix rising out of his own ashes, is ordained from antiquity. Rebirth of the soul into a succession of earthly human bodies is absolutely basic to human existence. Each Time cycle develops higher levels of consciousness to change man’s concepts of matter and energy to new concepts. The greatest miracle that can happen to any man is the discovery of his Self. The Self is one’s divinity which unites man’s consciousness with God. We constantly transform our bodies as our brain enlarges to meet its complexing needs. Our brain has more than doubled. The consciousness of human beings is unfolding the capacity for a comprehensive explanation which will literally change the way we look at our world. It is a double-edged sword because what you give out from yourself is given back to you for your own growth to maturity. When you give acceptance and not judgment, knowing if you were in the other person’s shoes you would do the same thing due to your lack of education of new straight-knowledge as it unfolds a folded pattern for man’s spiritual growth to maturity in Time cycles. It is easier to do the work of mastering your own emotions by work on consciously knowing Who you are, Why you are here, and the Purpose for being given the privilege to be here in a body as man begins the transition from Sensed-Thinking to Mind-Knowing. If we do not integrate book learning with inner development, the results are still darkness. Breaking through the outer thinking to the inner knowing requires new basic knowledge that many are ready to receive. The greater your potential, the stronger the wind. You must begin to look at yourself in the refining process. Any worthwhile product must be tested and tried for strength. What you need to know will be found in you. Accept where you are as your own creation. Know you created this and having made this, you can make the opposite. In our greatest difficulty is our greatest gift. In this Cosmic Age life is giving an opportunity for first-had experience to begin to see what “I” really is and to effect a cure for all of our disabilities. Empirical knowledge, knowledge gained by sensed-observation, has been deemed the only reliable evidence upon which to form conclusions. This assumption is a colossal error in judgment. Not one effect in nature is what it seems to be. Light is all we have to deal with and light is in every human being. As long as that light lies dormant, man is dominated by his body desires to such an extent that he thinks his body is his Self. Body dominated humans think outwardly through their senses, hear sounds with ears, see objects with physical eyes, and record memories upon their brains. The brain is only the seat of sensation and the record of sensation. Nerve centers in the brain govern the body. Man can create only with Mind and the brain is not the Mind. The brain is made up of an infinite number of sentient responsive cells that we possess for use as we grow through stages to maturity. All men, and all civilization, are the sum total of every man’s thinking since the beginning of man. Mankind unfolds through each other generation after generation. Each man is the sum total of thoughts of the ages extended to him. Most of mankind is dominated by impure imagination. Men with potent wills animated by purely selfish purposes use the mind and brain to impose their will and mental authority upon others. The human race is now due for a tremendous mental transition into another step of higher intellectual unfolding Mind-awareness to bring man the knowledge of his own nobleness and worth. It is time for everyone to know the universe as an Orderly Whole in which we all live, and move, and have our being.
“I will put my laws into their mind and write them in their hearts: And I will be to them a God and they shall be to me a people: And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord; for every man shall know me, from the least to the greatest” – Hebrews, Chapter 8.
