Reincarnation Defines the Oneness

We fall within the gamut of the creative process and get recycled but with our individual identity. We are from the same source, part of the creative process, able to create our niche; yet blend with the whole. Our justice system pales in comparison to the law of cause and effect. Reincarnation makes sense for ultimate justice that we are subservient to.

Changing Lifestyle

We have many beliefs and I take a view the more the merrier! I wish I had enough time to understand more of them. It is just so fascinating. But I know each of us has unique beliefs too, at least to the extent how we interpret even the core of our beliefs. And then we have agnostics and atheists of different shades, not forgetting those who fall within and without beliefs at will! Let all have an even field, but we shouldn’t go overboard in the sense we cannot stand others different from us. We have needs to survive and other basics to live within society. Even the elderly desperately try to be in the loop from how to operate the modern gadgets to staying relevant than become living relics. Of course, it is sort of a losing battle in the end. I saw a cartoon showing people queuing at the Pearly Gates oblivious to the surroundings with their fingers pressing imaginary gadgets! St Peter was not amused in the beginning but he understood their angst later at being deprived of their favorite pastime that had bowled them over!

Link to Creation

Some believe in reincarnation in that life is a continuum. We are not only reborn here but also in other realms. The soul is not born and hence it is eternal. The physical body helps us to survive the elements here but the inner voice, soul, is what matters. We tend to forget its significance despite it trying to make its presence felt; in fact, it is the inner guide holding us together. I take a view - it prompts us not to forget the oneness of creation but also to be a beacon shining the light of uniqueness within each of us. It guides us towards the equilibrium to continue the journey with the rest of creation. While in this state of life we have to balance the needs of the body, mind, and the soul. Then nothing can stand in our way from the bliss of our being, existence. Soul is our eternal link to creation.

Karma in Action

We meet many and even connect with some instantly – distances, beliefs, gender, age do not matter. Some do put us off too. That shows some connection from, maybe, our past lives, existence. We help some while others go beyond their call of duty to extend their hand of help in times of our need. Few we hardly know or they spring out of the blue, but they leave a lasting impression. Does it not suggest some indebtedness from past lives or even our debt in our future lives? Where we are born and to whom are also mysteries that are beyond us - a lottery of the womb that we have to live by, some may take a view, but for me it is karma at play. Once the choice is made there is no turning back. We are dealt a deck of cards and then it is up to us and our ingenuity to see out during our lease of life here. Previous generations were more restricted but the present reach out to the far corners of the world as distances are shrinking in terms of time needed for travel.

That we can be born anywhere, anytime, and to whomever highlights the oneness of creation. Then the law of cause and effect kicks in too. We can not only reach the highs and lows of life while here, but also carry forward what really matters, the essence of our actions and even inaction. Is there a proof, but it is more of an inner awareness, a gut feeling that creative process is more than what can understand for now. Our justice system is a joke when we compare to the law of cause and effect. There are wheels within wheels that we cannot overcome and I tend to believe there is a crime behind every fortune. When one is playing in that league, it goes with the turf! Okay, I agree many get used to such a lifestyle and even justify their action to deprive the majority.

Oneness and Separation

That we carry forward much that is uncompleted, unfulfilled, crying for justice means life has to continue. Some may succeed to an extent they move up higher in the realm of creation, even another energy force that is unknown to us while some merge with the oneness to an extent they are above repetitive births. But we cannot escape from the cause and effect of our actions that get imprinted in our soul or rather our soul will find its own level defined by the justice system inherent in the creative process. We cannot fall out of, separated, from the oneness of creation – are we not just sparks from the original source thirsting to stick together? It is poetic justice that we get what we truly deserve and is up to us to be inspired. Whether we connect with humanity as we know is irrelevant, but the consequences of our actions decide where we move on – and that thought is inborn and we do well to ponder and chew on. Those who live by their conscience should have a smoother ride at all times here and hereafter. We are better off thinking long term – an eternal journey guided by one with unimaginable passion and ability. However insignificant we maybe, let us not rock the boat for our own sake too!

I take a logical view Steve - ultimate justice can only be through reincarnation with the law of cause and effect, karma, the decider. There can also be others like ascending to heaven or sinking to hell and in between too. That also falls within karma.

The whole process is inbuilt and the state of our world is due to our leaders pulling the wool over our eyes rather than biting the bullet and delivering on the promises they made to get elected - siva

Siva, you never fail to amaze and impress me with such inspirational words. When I think of me being me forever and beyond it makes me smile. Actually I do like me so I have to say that I welcome continuing to be me even if I'm different. My inner core will still be me. It's hard to wrap my mind around this but I do believe that it is the way it is. It's all a learning process and we will always be learning. I love that thought.

Thanks Nancy, I am grateful that I have this forum to share my thoughts with you and others who are kind enough to lend support.

I feel we are sparks from creation that is eternal (even before big bang) and we will continue in many energy forms but we should be accountable for our actions.

Some are just givers and others takers - of course, the majority fall in between. The work of the soul is at play bringing forward the essence of past lives. The givers are undeterred and also the takers, but karma is at play accounting for past actions and what we carry forward hereafter. Our beliefs are also based on similar logic - siva

That sure has a consoling effect. Based on injustices that I faced, I too feel that punishment will be there. But what I suffered, was it my karma? And am I doing something wrong now for which I will have to pay in the next life? And will I be satisfied if I do not get to see the punishment for crimes committed against me? If reincarnation is a way to be just then justice is delayed by god also, isn't it? Yeah, soul and all that. I do agree that we develop bondage based on our past. My little friend held my finger firmly, within first few weeks, his little sister did not. What am I to make of that? :) Obviously, I have more affinity for the brother. But because he showed that affinity when he did not need me or knew me. Something unexplained which can only be past life bonding.

I believe soul is eternal in the sense we help some and others help us going out of the way showing a link. There are many instances in our lives when who we meet matters. We queue up at government offices for some work - and some decisions are up to the officer. One will insist on the one document we do not have while another will just accept based on impulse or trust. Some go out of the way - put us at ease and then help out while others brush us away. I feel all these resonate with karma.

We face injustices and I take a view it is their problem and not mine. I have helped people but sometimes the expectations are endless and when we fail once, all the past help is forgotten. So we may take a view better not to help at all!

I have experienced instant karma in action and also some that fail to materialize, but we know of those who help others and who don't. And we have an awareness that the long arm of karma will never fail.

I console myself at the worst of times with the words of Helen Keller - “So much has been given to me I have not time to ponder over that which has been denied.” For every injustice we suffer, we get more than we deserve from others. Let the perpetrators carry on till they meet their comeuppance. Of course, we should do our part to bring them to justice than take everything lying down.

Our justice system is porous and we require a higher form of justice and that can be only through reaping what we sow. To have proof of karma or even the existence of God is beyond our capability. But inner awareness tells me everything will cancel out in the end and no one can be a winner at other's cost and misery. Thanks Vandana for your thoughts - siva

Thank you dear Stella and I admire your steadfast faith. I am grateful to you for your support as a dear friend.

You are indeed blessed. As for myself, I try to understand life from personal experiences and also from the anguish I feel when few ride roughshod over others in every way and go Scot-free! I am not linking this to politics with Scottish independence!

Final justice is only fair and is inbuilt in the creative process whether by going to heaven, rotting in hell or coming back here or anywhere does not matter. If we have the right attitude heaven can be experienced right here and also the opposite.

I see God in His creations, that is, He is everywhere. If He switches off the atmosphere, we are a goner! siva

Siva, Thank you for another great article. as you know I too believe in reincarnation and I also know that it was accepted by much of the Christian church for the first five hundred years of its existence and even longer by some. While there is much that we do not understand here, the 'knowing' within me says that all is well. We are indeed all one and one with God as well. The path we take does not matter and we must never judge another. The mistake comes when we get the idea that we alone are right and that it is the only way, not only for us, but for others as well. I admire the way you are able to stay friends with others who think differently from you, how you always know how to put others at ease. Blessings.

Thanks Kingwell for your kind words. Reincarnation makes sense in the way we find ourselves here every moment, and we have memories of times that are not connected with what we know here, including our dreams. When we get deserted by some, others are waiting in the wings to accept us!

No one is entirely right or wrong - is my view. Everything is inspired by creation. At every moment there are extremes of kindness and also wickedness, and we have to find our own niche within and fight to stay sane and chip in too!

I am touched that those who do not agree with me,yet make the effort to connect and even support me! That shows we are one as they know my nature is just to share, accept, but never judge through my eyes. The path i have taken has led me one way and others also have own experiences, but we are all bound to coexist,

Those who live with grudge, rancor, are only punishing themselves - time to step out of the vicious circle is long overdue. Let us enjoy life with all its pluses and minuses as the Creator has willed. When He tolerates us, what more do we want? siva

Thank you Lewis. Reincarnation, by whatever name we call it, should inspire and haunt us, make us pause and ponder - we have to be accountable for our actions. Heaven and hell may have similar connotations, but that gives me a feeling that our Creator has failed us here which is very, very, unfair after us lapping up everything for free!

Some manage to stay outside the ambit of law here, but all will leave with empty hands. On his sickbed and during his last hour alive, Alexander the Great told his generals "After my death, when you put my body in the casket, let my arms hang over the edges with my palms wide open, so the public can see my empty hands while I am leaving the world."

We can only leave with the essence, core, of our actions here and then find our own level - poetic justice in the end! siva

Again ~ Siva ~ Thanks for a great thought-provoking article. I absolutely agree with you that 'we can not only reach the highs and lows of life while here, but also carry forward what really matters, the essence of our actions and even inaction.' I am fully pursuaded that deep personal faith is the main thing that keeps us from loosing the battle that often rages in the mind!

Blessings!

We all yearn for due justice and console ourselves that it will happen. It should for life to have real meaning and purpose.

I see other species are more aware than us to coexist with the laws of nature. We play with fire feeling that anything goes, sort of the chosen one! That can prove a big mistake as we are more vulnerable than them when the Creator switches off one light after another! siva

Thank you Joyesh for your motivation.

We can justify what happens in this life by relating them with our past actions. Just like to get things done, give the work to a busy person, we can be placed where we can really contribute, a test of fire, if you like! Then we create good karma for our endless travel.

We also have an inner awareness that tells us what to do as crystallized in "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". I also keep in mind what Gandhi said - "there is everything to meet our needs but not our greed". So heaven is not only presented to us on a silver plate but nourished every moment - what we do to survive here is next to nothing! siva

Very true, Siva. Even in the waking state, a man, with all his pretensions to scientific achievement and philosophical life, cannot go beyond the common drama of life: he cannot overcome this play of birth, growth, decay and death.

After birth there will be growth, and after growth there will be decay, and then death. This is something common to every individual life that no human knowledge, no exploration in space, has been able to change.

In that common background of life with all its achievements, this life continues to be a drama of smile and tears, of love and hatred, of success and failure, of honor and dishonor. This is the drama that continues to be enacted from one end of the world to another, from primitive time to modern age.

So far common background of life is concerned, human knowledge has not gone very far, because achievement in the waking state is not meant for that. Sense perception cannot reveal to you the truth behind this sense world. Yet, it is on the truth behind the sense world that the religious striving of a man is based. It is on the reality beyond this sense world that ethical idealism is based.

Yet, our reasons cannot take us to that realm.

And until we reach that realm, until we know that "truth", we cannot be free.

Thoughtful, philosophical comment, thanks Joyesh.

We are too steeped in the mundane to rise to higher levels of consciousness. It is indeed sad that our leaders/politics have been setting majority of innocents against each other from time immemorial. Everyone knows the hypocrisy involved but accept it as the norm. Lucky the Second World War happened 75 years ago and not now, but the lessons are being forgotten!

Science can take us only thus far - the real change has to come from within by accepting the oneness of creation and the uniqueness in each of us. Coexistence is the key from how the whole universe is wrought - it applies to galaxies, stars, planets and each species and within each of them too.

There is only one Creator by whatever name we call Him. When we cut out the frills then we can get to the core. We have had enough of destruction but the hard work of creation is from the Creator through nature that he presents 24/7.

Let is start from the very basic - think, ponder and act. Do good and what it is none needs tell us, so the Creator has done His part! Reap what we sow will automatically follow - siva

Interesting summation of this theory siva,

I liked how you said oneness allows each individual torch to still shine brightly within its (God's) lighthouse.

"it prompts us not to forget the oneness of creation but also to be a beacon shining the light of uniqueness within each of us."

Thanks Spirited. Human species is supposed to play a higher role as we think we are at the top of the pecking order, at least we act that way! We have so much of blind trust in the whole process to feel - tomorrow will take care of itself despite our rising self-indulgence!

When we have the consciousness of a higher role to lend our shoulder to the wheel of creation we feel a lightness of being despite the higher responsibility. When we have positive intentions, the rest will follow and our actions should benefit the whole - and us too, wherever we find ourselves in later and if nothing, does it matter? siva

The basically Indian concept that the soul or spirit, after biological death, can begin a new life in a new body is mired in controversy as critics argue that it has not been scientifically proven. I personally believe the best way to live in this world is to lead an upright, moral life and doing so will give us fulfillment and contentment. That should be our aim and mission - never mind whether we think of reincarnation or otherwise!

Yes dear Subra, I had taken an all encompassing view though I had headlined reincarnation. The idea is to "reap what you sow" that resonates with all including agnostics and atheists.

Science will always come short of intuition and inborn instincts like what is behind the Creation, life and death.

I like science for the reason it can be proved wrong again and again while some tend to stick to not only the word of their beliefs but also interpret them to suit their selfish goals- my way or the high way! Agreed when one leads an upright life to benefit society and without ego, we are in heaven right here - siva

This is a great article. Although, I am not sure about reincarnation as in another life, but I believe that we change every day based on our experiences of the past minutes. So we really reap what we sow in this life. At times we may not realize that something happening to us is our doing, but we really do carve our lives with our thoughts, decisions and actions. That is what I believe.
And I also believe that everyone has to have some strong faith, because it is the faith that gives us courage to move on in this life, otherwise, what motivation do we have to do any good?
Very nice article, once again. Thanks for sharing

Thanks Pollyal, I do hope to read yours again soon.

This is an inner awareness for me based on my life's experiences that I wanted to share. I am glad that many have similar thoughts whatever their beliefs are otherwise.

Most times we find the person matters a lot you meet or deal with. Some take kindly to you and go out of the way to help you. Agreed, few do as a matter of course, common courtesy, while others brush one aside without even a look.

When we are in a queue, it is natural to size up who we like to deal with and sometimes we have no choice! Maybe, luck plays a part to meet the right person, but I pause and ponder about some connection to justify them going out of the way.

Though research has been made and there are striking instances of episodes attesting to reincarnation, some cannot be convinced. It is like even the most devoted will not believe me if I say I experienced God's presence - siva

Am I alone, here, in fundamentally disagreeing with those who have commented on this thread along the lines of "you only get from this life what you're prepared to put into it" or "you reap from this life what you sow" or words to that effect?

Try telling that to the little old lady whose handbag is stolen by a mugger, and she's left bleeding and bruised ... or dead ... on the street"

Try telling that to the innocent family wiped-out in their car by a drug-crazed maniac who decides to take his own life, as well as theirs. (This actually happened in 2013 less than two miles from my home).

I could add here so many other instances that render the "reap what you sow" adage completely wrong, but I think the two examples I've used will suffice for now.

Thanks again Lewis - sort of expressing anguish at the unfairness in life that we tend to sweep aside ascribing them to fate etc.

Our justice system is porous and justice delayed is justice denied rings in the truth.

I can add to that how children, even infants, are ill treated to an extent they just have a fleeting peep into our world before hurrying away, sort of recalled by our Creator that this is not for them!

I take a view too that if one is too religious we tend to compartmentalize ourselves as opposed to those who just help spontaneously without a thought.

I will be happy if a higher form of justice awaits us to see that our lives have been meaningful and sort using our quality and passion to enrich the whole process forever. In what form we find ourselves in does not matter as long as it is for the "common good" - siva

Siva: not so much "anguish" as deep frustration. I'm a former Sunday school teacher and active church member until.... But that's another story.

Suffice it to say, placing my trust in God once and for all in 1979 and embarking on a (sometimes solitary) journey of discovery, has taught me so much more than I would have otherwise known. And therein, I think, lies the core of the experience: it's not about "believing" it's all about "knowing". The journey continues.

By the way Siva, you wrote, "I take a view too that if one is too religious we tend to compartmentalize ourselves as opposed to those who just help spontaneously without a thought."

Amen to that! Well said sir.

Thank you for your soothing words of encouragement, Lewis.

Everyone knows to help those in need is the right thing to do. I see some who are quite religious but sort of wanting to get to heaven or find inner peace for themselves only, okay for their immediate families too. However, I wish they helped society more first by opening their eyes and sharing their time and some of their resources too. I am sure no God will be pleased to welcome those who are quite selfish in their lifestyle as they can contaminate hereafter!

We can touch many with even a simple, ready, smile and then we can move up from there. But a mad world of selfishness and ego spoils all.

I have moved closely with few who were very rich only to realize later that their own were impatiently waiting to grab it all, sort of vultures circling above before their time - sadly, they had lost control of their wealth by that time and they realize it too late.

We should pause and think often whether the path we take will soothe us in our final moments - siva

Thanks Carol. When I think of the justice system we have evolved, it falls so short. Though controversial, the big fish get away with their misdeeds, or can pay themselves out of trouble.

Reincarnation looks logical but also other reward systems like in our beliefs. If we are not accountable for our actions, then our life is quite unfair, but the Creator would have built in ultimate justice when we think of all that He has given us and renewing them every minute. What a spread, feast, for our eyes but they should come at a price! siva

Thanks Vellur. I believe reincarnation follows our karma - the consequences of our actions. In a way, we are born every moment learning from our life experiences.

I have an open view about reincarnation, but for our lives to have meaning there should be ultimate justice. I can forgive and forget the injustices but I do yearn that we all should be accountable for our actions. Our soul has to fight with others later to find its own level wherever it might be! siva

Hello Siva, the shortest distance between two points is either the perpendicular or a circle...that which we call karma and naturally palan.
So why do souls get lost? What is the reason? Can we really make a meal out of this issue?
When you are going down the final stretch, you do have some options I think, something that has to do with the kind of life one has led.
So, reincarnation may be in the form of a son of a beggar or in the child of a leper. Remember, the options are many but the free options are all for those who have curses. Why do we crave friendship at all costs? Even at the cost of deceiving our friend. It is to escape the curse that is flowing so freely and readily all around.
Sorry, I am sounding off again Siva. I meant that there is justice for all for the good people and the BAD people too.
Let us reincarnate somewhere in our articles and then unite with common ideals and robust goals...I think!

Thank you Snerfu, I was missing you and hence gave you a gentle wake-up call couple of days ago. I am sure I was not alone.

There are few questions that are beyond us. One is - where we go after here, but then where we were before here? Then, are we alone in this humongous space that has no beginning, no end.

I crave for ultimate justice like everyone else, sorry not everyone! I want us to be held accountable for our lives/actions and I have seen the extremes of goodness and evil too, and the vast majority like you and me content to swim in the middle! siva

Great to read another post from you Sivaji. Indeed, Reincarnation makes the most sense and (explains a lot of things in terms some being born with innate extroardinary gifts and talents while others with dire straits or handicaps.)

I agree with Steve's comments about the West not recognizing it…though almost all of my friends do…

:) Namaste

Thank you Rama-ji, so happy to see you again on my pages. I do hope all is well with you and I know you should be busy as usual with your seva and other duties.

Like most, I do yearn for justice that is all encompassing and reincarnation looks very logical with what we come from and where we are placed in life. Namaste - siva

The spark of realization that we are accountable for our actions is within us - one cannot be from natural justice. Thanks Abdul, appreciate your support - siva

Thanks for this comment Peachpurple. There have been some recorded instances of recollection of past lives but the vast majority do not possess that though hypnosis uses past life regression techniques. However, it is finally just a belief like the existence of God and after death theories.

My point was for ultimate justice and reincarnation can be one as to where we are born and when - siva

Thanks Gaurachand for your take.

Even if we take all the views into consideration, we can well fall short in our understanding of creation. I feel ultimate justice should be inbuilt within cause and effect; karma - in action - siva
