Reincarnation, the most compassionate scheme
I know there are many who reject reincarnation because it does not appear to be part of 'Christian concepts'. In the first place, what the the Church and Paul determined that Jesus said much after his death, compared to what he actually said, has been proven historically to be two different things. Jesus never attacked/denigrated the concept; in other words, he never said one way or the other about it .. Current views of God are: compassionate, loving, forgiving,.. with key-core word being: forgiving. This is clearly antithetical to: judging and judgmental .. As argued previously, a 'just' universe is one with karmic consequences operating (they're equivalent) so.. Heaven/Hell don't make sense in this scheme.. They're purposeless. The most compassionate spiritual scheme includes reincarnation.
Imagine we live in a finite-mass universe: there are a finite number of quantum systems, life-forms (hosts for souls), and souls. We assume a slight preponderance of souls to life-forms. Why? Because if there were less, some life-forms would be soulless – unacceptable in this framework. But a slight preponderance virtually guarantees overall cosmic spiritual growth. Why? Because then souls are in competition for hosts and the only legitimate criteria can be: spiritual maturity .. Now of course, we determine our own spiritual maturity by: the choices we make, are they selfish or generous?, are we loving or cold?, spiteful?, vengeful?, hateful?.. How we spend each life determines how we spend the next: as an Indigo inhabitant, human, or cockroach.
It sounds laughable but.. I assure you, it's the simplest spiritual scheme that explains reality from a spiritual perspective. Live your life stomping on others, dominating others, exploiting others,.. You're treating others like insects – something to be exterminated or at best – exploited. It's the crime of the ruling elite. Surely, they're 'hell bent' on spending at least their next life as a cockroach .. What this means in practical human terms is: there's no point to human punishment; our spiritual system will take care of it. We'd better 'get busy' forgiving and rehabilitating rather than judging and condemning. If we relish revenge/punishment, we're no different than the ruling elite: cockroach-life bent.
I loathe threats/threatening so it's actually impossible for me to perform that childish activity.. As my teacher (for education) just proclaimed: “I don't believe in punishment but I believe in consequences.” So I can take her statement as a mature and balanced guide to humanity: “realize there are consequences for living a non-spiritual life”. What those are – are totally up to you .. I cannot convince a Christian to believe in reincarnation. I cannot convince an atheist to consider spirituality. ^^ But I can try my best to get you, dear reader, to think about above objectively, try your best to come up with your own spiritual scheme – that puts compassion, forgiveness, and love front and center .. In the scheme above, God does not judge; we judge and condemn (or bless!) ourselves..
We bless/condemn ourselves with the kinds of lives we lead. We are wholly responsible and accountable for our own choices/lives! This is the most empowering and accountable framework! Choose to accept or reject spirituality but always be accountable for your decisions! Okay? ^^
