Did you know that consistency is a spiritual attribute? Not many people recognise this fact but once you’ve seen it you’ll see it everywhere. God is consistent within each of the three planes and within all of them. God consistently sends us “manifestations” (Spiritual Masters) about every 500 to 1,000 years. Every manifestation brings with him a new set of social laws and takes us to a higher level of Love. So the Love is always consistent, only the social rules change to fit the age the people live in. Each new set of rules unites a bigger portion of the population. We live in an new age where the whole world is going to be united into one national – “the earth is but one country, mankind it’s citizens“.
One thing that God consistently teaches is that we are here for one lifetime only. Only one manifestation teaches about reincarnation and that is Krishna. “Why does Krishna teach about reincarnation and none of the other messengers do?” I used to wonder. Then one day I was told to read the Hindu writings and as I read it became clear to me that the reincarnation that Krishns talks about is a totally different kind from the ones that reincarnationists talk about. Reincarnationists talk about leaving the body at the end of life and being reborn back to earth to live life over and over again.This effectively removes god from the picture so they “never” have to face a reckoning.
God says we are born onto earth to learn lessons and we only need 70 odd years to achieve that and once we die we lose our free-will forever and enter the next world at the stage we progressed to in this life. I’ll repeat that phrase, “we enter the next world at the stage we progressed to in this life.” If we end up far from God at the point of death then that is where we enter the next world. The feeling we get when we get there and recognise that in 70 short years we could have been far, far closer to God than we are is what is called “hell” Because there is no way we can undo that station in the next world. What we could have achieved in this world in 70 years may take a million years in the next world because we can’t promote ourselves any closer to god in the next world, only in this one. The feeling of “heaven” is when we get to the next world and realise that we have done as much as we can to get close to God and there is nothing more we could have done to move closer – that is heaven. Heaven and hell are states of beingness, not places of existence. These states of Beingness are also achieveable in this world. To reach hell simply do nothing! To reach heaven we have to always seek out the truth – everyday of our lives!
So there is no coming back to this earth to live your life again! So what sort of reincarnation is Krishna talking about. Know that we sleep one third of out lifetimes. Why is that? Because in that third we are actually in the next world. So we spend two thirds of our life in this world and one third in the spiritual world. When we awaken we are cast out of the spiritual world into this one. This is called an incarnation at the point to conception in the womb and a re-incarnation every time there after. And it happens every 24 hours, every day, not at the end of our earthly living! So the teachings of Krishna are consistent with the teaching of all the other manifestations! (Like Jesus, Muhamed, Budha, Zoroaster, Moses etc)
mankind is always looking for differences, but spiritual people are always looking for consistencies, because God is One, Man is one and all the Manifestations agree. If all things are involved in all things, how can they be inconsistent (not different, inconsistent)
An apple and a walnut may be different but they are both manifestations of trees, which is the bigger consistency. So things can be different and consistent.
All the laws of the universe have different manifestations on the different levels but are always the same law! So the law of attraction states “opposites attract” on the physical level. On the metaphysical level the same law states that “like attracts like” – the complete oposite to the physical level, Yet it is consistent on each of these levels. On the Spiritual level the law of attraction states “Love attracts all except the human heart that chooses to turn away” because we have free will to turn towards Love or to turn away from it, in this world (only).
So the spiritual person works on Consistency, stability and Growth to achieve a divine civilisation (heaven), the metaphysical person works on growth, and stability whilst the physical person works only on growth. Can you see the difference in the states? Only the top spiritual state combines to give security. And that is the underlying urge of every man, woman and child on earth!
