Reincarnation: What is the reason we incarnate?

Due to my absence I want to share a 2 part series about reincarnation with you which I published last year in November. I hope you like it:

November in Central Europe is the month we remember our deceased loved ones. November 1st therefore is a holiday. According to it the season changes: the nights are getting longer, the trees are mostly losing their last leaves, it is getting colder and we have a lot of fog over here. I thought this would be a fitting time for such a post in order to bring a little light into this season.

Reincarnation is a very wide ranged topic and of course I don’t know all the answers. But there are segments that not only feel true to me but which are even like a knowing or kind of memory. This subject is also most present throughout my book I’m Free .

Some people say that we are reincarnating in order to get enlightened, since we are the fallen angels that have to find their way back to God. Once enlightened, they say, we don’t need to incarnate anymore. Others say, whatever we are struggling with in this life is a consequence of a former life. Another statement is, that we have to incarnate in every life form (mineral, plant, animal) before we were ready for a human experience. And also there is the statement that we have to experience everything ourselves before we don’t need to incarnate anymore. This would include being a murderer, a victim, a mother, a father, a boss, a slave, suffering, bathing in money,… simply everything that can be experienced – and that’s a lot! The Buddhists say that if you behaved in a certain bad way, you have to incarnate in a lower level the next time. It means, you will be one of the poor people,  born in a harder environment, or even get back to the animal state. If you behaved well then you will reach a higher level until you end Samsara (the never-ending circle of birth and death) and enter Nirvana.

I want to tell you, how I feel about reincarnation and I try to keep it simple. The reason we incarnate first and foremost is to experience our spiritual existence in a different way. We want to feel, who we are, see, who we are, and share, who we are. But most of all we want to remember who we really are. As long as we live in the non-physical realm we know about our light, we feel the love and the inexhaustible never ending energy we are. But after a while only knowing this  is not sufficient anymore. We know it in theory but want to feel it. Neale Donald Walsch put it great in a workshop I joined. He said: “What is all the knowledge of sex of a user if you cannot try it out and feel how it really is?” Arriving in this body we forget, who we really are. And throughout our physical lifetime, we make experience over experience which gives us hints and insights. Getting such an Aha is like growing out of your shell and feeling like a newborn. You think that life has just begun because you found out that what you believed before about life and yourself was a big misunderstanding. When I found out that I don’t need to accept what others want me to do, I was walking on clouds for a week.

Look at this picture: It is summer and noon time. You stand outside in the hot sun and you lighten up a candle. It is nice, yes, but the effect is pretty poor. Now think of a dark and cold winter’s night when lightning up the candle. Do you recognize the difference? Do you FEEL the difference? You are a candle and in order to remember your light, you have to see yourself surrounded by darkness. That’s the only way to experience your power source! That’s why we have to go through hard times in order to feel our strength and develop abilities or attitudes that are lying dormant within us.  What it is you want to discover was set by you before the incarnation. (Now you get an idea why we all have different goals and purposes.) Once you have discovered a part of your light, you will never drift back to the old misunderstanding. You have not only grown happier but also a lot stronger and wiser. That’s why older people often get quiet, more tolerant, and a lot more satisfied with the small wonders in life. They see the light in themselves and in everything, they get back to the basics, and what really matters in life.

Also in a physical body we can make things visible and touchable. We ourselves can touch, smell, taste, enjoy physical comfort. We also can feel emotions like anger, greed, jealousy, rage, hate, bondage, frustration. And of course the opposite like happiness, optimism, curiosity, freedom, health, tolerance, love,, compassion, helpfulness, gratitude. And this is the reason why we choose earth. Here we are in a world of opposites. We learn out of opposites what we want and what we don’t want. We need to know what’s cold in order to appreciate the warmth. And as I said: We need to know darkness in order to cherish our own light. Duality is the important tool down here in order to learn the lessons, collect wisdom, and make the experiences we wished for,before we came into this body.

In my next post about reincarnation I will write about the mystic word “karma” which is so misused!

In Love and Light!

These are beautiful pictures on the title, very apt.
As for the prose I shall read it completely and carefully in the next post and shall comment on that.
But I can say this is a topic well chosen.
Often ill informed and misunderstood.
There are various school of thoughts which tell of so many things.
After all these are the realms of the secret world.
Love to You.

I am searching one of your poems on which I wanted to continue from where you have concluded.
