They said to him, ' What is the place to which we are going? ' The Lord said, ' Stand in the place you can reach! ' " Mary said, ' Everything established thus is seen. ' The Lord said, ' I have told you that it is the one who can see who reveals. '
Our Souls are 100% responsible for Us to attract " true goodwill " which is intrinsically good - good karma.
The Universal Law of Harmony
This law supersedes even the fundamental law of Karma. For " true goodwill " is intrinsically good; its value is wholly self-contained and utterly independent of its external relations. Therefore, " true goodwill " is the supreme potential of balance. The purpose of Karma is to attain harmony. If you throw a rock into a still pond you will disturb the harmony of that pond, you are the cause. The effect is a splash and series of waves on the surface of water that flows back and forth until the harmony is restored. Consequently, your incompatible actions with " true goodwill " will flow into the Universe and eventually will fell back on you, lifetime after life time, until your own " true goodwill " is restored.
Among the mysteries that were concealed from the masses was the doctrine of the pre-existence of the soul. In "The True Word", Celsus accused the early Church of teaching the masses the doctrine of heaven and hell while teaching the elect the doctrine of reincarnation. Origen does not refute Celsus, but rather explains that:
In the year 553 A.D., 165 Church officials condemned reincarnation. Prior to that time, it had been a fundamental Christian teaching: following the trail of decisions that changed the world.
By Benjamin Seiler
The Council of 451 Emphasises the Law of Reincarnation.
Reincarnation was never once a topic of discussion. It was held to be a fundamental dogma, which was even reinforced by the Council of 451.
Who could have imagined then that Christian theology would so essentially change with the ascension of Justinian to the throne of the Eastern Roman Empire in 527, that under influence of his wife Empress Theodora it would have a profound unintended consequence occurred that the following centuries would suffer as a result?
Exerpt from some Buddhist text:
Man migrates from existence to existence, driven by the wind of his actions: there must be a Path to deliverance from rebirth and death. This Path must be a certain knowledge or esoteric wisdom, or a certain sacrifice, or a certain asceticism, or a certain ecstatic meditation.
There is a reason that we are all here in this world, and it is all about the discovery of Your Self. Your Self, that very real part of you that is wanting to bring forth something so spectacular. But it is only when we are aware of that which we are, that we can go on and discover that which we bring.

A UNIVERSAL LAW INDISPENSABLE FOR THE HUMAN SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION.
THE CLASSIC PERFECT LAW, CAUSE AND EFFECT: ONE REAPS WHAT HE SOWS.
THE TRUE MANIFESTATION OF THE INFINITE MERCY OF THE ALMIGHTY FATHER, CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, AND AT THE SAME TIME, THE SUPREME EXPRESSION OF HIS HOLY JUSTICE.
THE TYRANNIC AND EVIL POWER HAS ALWAYS TRIED TO HIDE THIS GREAT TRUTH FOR FEAR AND IGNORANCE, TO ENSLAVE AND SUBJUGATE SOULS. BUT THE TRUTH, THANKS TO THE MASTERS OF THE EAST AND TO THE MASTER OF ALL MASTERS HIMSELF, JESUS CHRIST, HAS TRIUMPHED OVER HOAX.
READ THE ATTACHED DOSSIER ON REINCARNATION AND THUS, AS ALWAYS, WE INVITE YOU TO MEDITATE AND DEDUCE.
REINCARNATION WAS ACCEPTED BY THE ORIGINAL CHRISTIANITY
Within Christianity, the reincarnation concept has been misinterpreted in several occasions, to the point of having been declared anathema, heresy in a historical moment for political reasons when Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire. This occurred even though the concept of reincarnation was clearly transmitted in the Bible and professed by some fathers of the Church.
Fortunately, thanks to the research of many historians and to the recent discovery of several historical documents that reveal new insights into the origins of Christianity, we now know how, when and why this apparent disagreement between the official Christian theology and the doctrine of Reincarnation began. If reincarnation was an idea circulating among the early Christians, why did it disappear from the Christian religion as we know it today?
It's hard to believe, but who outlawed the concept of reincarnation from Christianity was... A roman emperor!
And he did it for very mundane purposes.
In the early fourth century, the strongest Christian factions fought each other for influence and power, while at the same time the Roman Empire crumbled. In the year 325 AD, in a move to try to renew the unity of the empire, the absolute dictator, Emperor Constantine convened the leaders of the warring Christian factions at the Council of Nicaea. He offered them to release all his imperial power in favour of Christians if they resolved their differences and agreed on a single creed. The decisions made at this Council, created the foundation of the Roman Catholic Church. Soon, the books of the Bible would be edited and 'fixed' as well. On behalf of the unit, all the beliefs that conflicted with the new creed would be discarded. In the process, the factions and the writings that supported reincarnation were discarded.
Apparently some Christians continued to believe in reincarnation even after the Council of Nicaea, because in the year 553 AD. the Church had the need to deal with the concept of reincarnation and condemn it clearly. In the Second Council of Constantinople the concept of reincarnation, combined with other ideas under the term "pre-existence of the soul" was declared as a crime worthy of excommunication and damnation (anathema).
In the year 543 of the present era, Emperor Justinian, regarded by historians as the last Roman Emperor, convened a synod in Constantinople, with the sole purpose of condemning Origen's teachings on the doctrine of reincarnation although the pretext was another: the deliberation on the "Three Chapters" of the dissident churches, considered by Justinian as rebels and heretics, that were not under the direct power of Rome. Origen was then the most respected and beloved Father of the original Christian Church.
Imperial Mandate against the Pope
The council, also known as the Second Ecumenical Council, was chaired by Eutyches, candidate for the patriarchate of Constantinople, obviously subject to Justinian, and was attended by 165 bishops. But Pope Virgil, whose presence had been requested by the Emperor, was strongly opposed to the council and took refuge in a church in Constantinople, fearing the vengeful wrath of the evil Emperor. The Pope was not present in any discussion or didn't send any representative and therefore never accepted the doctrine of reincarnation was outlawed in the Christian creed.
The council, under the total control of the Emperor and the Pope's absence, drew up a series of anathemas. Some historians say they were 14 and others 15, intentionally targeted against the three schools of thought described as heretical, the beliefs of which Justinian saw as enemies of his political interests and had in Origen as their most respected theologian. The documents were known thereafter as "The Three Chapters." Two of the anathemas drawn up by Justinian, are the following:
Who says or thinks that human souls pre-existed as spirits and holy powers, but that, tired of God's vision, turned bad, and because of this, the divine love in them died and so they became souls sentenced to be incarnated in bodies as a punishment, is anathema.
Who say or think the soul of the Lord pre-existed and was together with God, the Word before the Incarnation and Conception of the Virgin, is anathema.
Many of the Fathers of the Christian Church accepted the teaching of the so called Esoteric Christianity defending the truth about reincarnation.
"I did not put in writing what I think because there is an esoteric Christianity which is not for everyone." St. Clement from Alexandria (150-220).
"The soul lives more than once in human bodies, but it can not remember its past experiences." Dialogue with Trypho, Justin Martyr (100-165).
Considered the Father of Science of the Church, Origen (185-254) argued:
"The pre-existence of the soul is immaterial and therefore it has no beginning or end. The predictions of the Gospels could not have been written with the intent of a literal interpretation. There is a steady progress towards perfection. All the spirits were created through no fault and all have returned, finally, to their original perfection. The education of the soul continues in successive worlds. The soul incarnates and experiences often death. The bodies are like glasses for the Soul, which gradually, life after life must be filled. First the mud glass, then the wooden glass, soon after the glass ones and finally the silver and golden glass. "
It is in this event, chaired by a monarch and not a religious, that Christianity condemned the idea of reincarnation. But the power of Justinian was more than enough to make his personal decision to outlaw the reincarnation from the Christian canon, prevailing over the beliefs of the Pope himself. Virgil's successors, including Gregory the Great (590-604), despite they dealt with various issues arising from the Fifth Council, did not say anything at all about the concepts of Origen concerning the doctrine of reincarnation.
The Pitfalls of a shrewd politician.
Justinian forced the acceptance of his personal decision to what appeared to be merely a meeting of bishops that was never really a council, because it has neither the presence nor the pope's approval.
After all, what Bishop might have opposed to him and refused to follow his orders?
Since then the notion of reincarnation disappeared from Christian thought in Europe and many believe, still today, that the non-acceptance of reincarnation is a true inspired dogma.
All for the decision of ... a Roman emperor.
It is a fact that some Christian sects and writers accepted the reincarnation as an extension of the teachings of Christ. Origen from Alexandria, one of the acclaimed Church Fathers and St. Gregory described as "the Prince of Christian teaching in the third century", wrote: “ Each soul comes into this world strengthened by the victories and weakened by their previous lives' defeats. "
Why does the Church try so badly to discredit the reincarnation? The psychological impact of reincarnation may be the best explanation. A person, who believes in reincarnation, assumes responsibility for their own spiritual evolution through the rebirth. He or she does not need priests, confession or rituals to avoid the curse, ideas which are not part of jesus' teachings . The person needs only to care for his own actions towards himself and others. Believing in the reincarnation eliminates the fear of the eternal hell that the Church uses to discipline its flock. In other words, the reincarnation directly undermines the authority and power of the dogmatic Church . It is no weird then, that reincarnation makes the Defenders of The Faith so nervous. The Church was defending, in this outrageous act, the doctrine of heaven and hell and eternal punishment because it focused more power in its hands. And thus reincarnation was outlawed in one of the most serious mistakes committed by the Christianity.
In the Bible there are enough references to the phenomenon of reincarnation which can be argued that the ancient people of Israel knew the concept and even for some of their sects reincarnation was an essential part of their beliefs, especially in the sects like the Essenes and other practicing Kabbalah.
For Christians in particular, the most important events of reincarnation can be found in the words of Jesus in the Gospels.
Here are some examples below.
During the passage of the transfiguration Jesus tells His disciples:
“ Elijah has come, and they did not recognize him; but, they did to him whatever they wanted. Similarly the Son of Man will have to suffer at their hands. Then the disciples understood that He was speaking of John the Baptist.
Matthew 17:10-13, Mark 9:11-13, Luke 9: 33
(Implying that John the Baptist was the reincarnation of the prophet Elijah).
Jesus tells His disciples about John the Baptist:
"And if you want to take my word, John is the Elijah who has to come. He who has ears, listen.
Explicitly stating that John the Baptist is the reincarnation of the prophet Elijah.
Along the way, Jesus saw a man blind from birth.
And His disciples asked him: - Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that is was born blind? Neither he sinned, nor his parents - said Jesus - but this happened so that the work of God might be in him.
(Implying that the man had previously lived before being born blind in this existence).
“Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.
The Church has chosen to spread fear for hell and eternal damnation for us, rather than giving us the knowledge necessary to choose and be independent from blind obedience or promises, in order to be summoned to Paradise.
There are many other things that Jesus did, that if they were written one by one, I think the world itself, could not contain the books that should be written.
It is said that the Bible does not teach reincarnation because this teaching is not written in it and therefore there is no such possibility. Jesus gave His teaching laminated to the inner circle and outer circle, for public and private, as clearly these Bible verses highlight:
Do not give holy things to the dogs and do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
He replied: “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Whoever has, it will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have, it will be taken from them. This is why I speak to them in parables:
Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand”.
Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; He did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet:
“The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those, on the outside, everything is said in parables “.
"With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with His own disciples, He explained everything. ."
"To you is granted to understand the mystery of the kingdom of God, to others they spoke in parables so that seeing they do not see and hearing they do not understand."
Despite the decree of 553, the belief in reincarnation persisted among the believers row. It took another thousand years and much bloodshed to erase completely the idea. In the early thirteenth century, the Cathars, a devout and enlightened sect of Christians, who believed in reincarnation, flourished in Italy and southern France. The Pope launched a crusade to stop such heresy, half a million of people were massacred. the Cathars were completely wiped off the map. This drain set the tone of the following brutal Inquisition that would begin soon. Not only the belief in reincarnation was the cause of persecution, but any metaphysical idea falling out of the dogma of the Church. Today, due to the natural human evolution and the current mental awakening (the awakening is not the same for everyone because there are souls with more and less experiences) most people would accept reincarnation and other truths by inspiration and not by dogma.
The mechanism of karma appears to be a by-product of the design of life and the universe, and as a result provides a natural scheme of salvation.
We consequently have what we call karmic lessons. Without this karmic law (referred to in channeling as the 'great karmic law'), entities of consciousness would accumulate negativity and eventually become totally fragmented from the whole, resulting in annihilation. In turn this could ultimately destroy the whole. Thus it is desirable to have a mechanism which protects the whole.
The fragmentation results because in order to do something to another, which one would not want done to oneself, one must block off one's ability to perceive the other person's viewpoint. In doing this, one builds up occlusion within consciousness, fragmenting it, lowering the vibrations, and one gradually sinks into increasing unconsciousness. Note that such a process can't be observed when it is a gradual devolution. Consciousness fundamentally can only know its own state.
The karmic law creates debt whenever harm is done to another, which must be paid back. It is a mechanism which safeguards the whole (All That Is, God) but gives freewill to the fragments. Note that the law also pertains to good actions being returned to one, but the consequences of negative actions is of more concern.
It has been stated that this law cannot be annulled but it would appear this doesn't mean it can't ever be overridden by special procedures, either by the individual or on a grand scale by possibly such authorities as the so-called Karmic Board, or God.
In the East, people have retained an understanding of karma, contrary to Western education which omits it. Nevertheless, there has been a tendency, particularly in the East, to avoid helping another in karmic matters, with the misconception that they will incur karma by interfering with the individual's lessons.
However, to the contrary we can know that omission in helping others can incur karma. This is one of the reasons Christianity rejected karma, believing that members would similarly take on this belief in contradiction to the Christian teaching regarding serving others.
Individual karma often occurs in group experiences as group karma in which the members of the group plan the events prior to the particular lifetime. And of course this planning of a lifetime always applies to any individual karma that needs to be resolved similarly, which has resulted from past lives. This karma, created from previous lifetime experience, is brought into events which are planned prior to a lifetime with a view to resolving it.
The physics of karma has been described in terms of 'cause and effect'.
Fundamentally, however, and from the higher viewpoint, in which space and time are spanned, cause and effect is simultaneous. For example, the perpetrator harms the victim. Did the perpetrator cause this harm? From the third-dimensional viewpoint they apparently did, but taking into account more data we know that the victim also attracted the perpetrator. That is, each sought out the other - it is a simultaneous phenomenon.
This is an example of duality - a two-polarity system. The perpetrator pole and the victim pole are interdependent. You can't have one without the other. Evil can't exist without the opposite pole of receivers of evil.
Now this duality gives us a mechanism for the return of energy in order to learn lessons. A whole energy (quantum state) divides into two poles. One pole acts as a debt to pay back the energy. The process of paying back the energy is the same as the process of one pole or energy seeking wholeness by returning to the other to cancel it, leaving a condition of unity (higher dimensionally). That is, the energy seeks wholeness and the poles come together, causing a return to self of what was inflicted on another.
We might expect then that every selfish action splits unity into the two poles of the duality. The condition prior to this division is a harmonious, more four-dimensional one. All energies can operate in phase in this nondual 4D state, which means anyone can duplicate (can be) another's viewpoint and no harm is possible.
But by dividing the unity into two poles, these energies are kept separate (and, in addition, the frequencies are lowered).
Actions on the part of the individual utilizing the energies of one side of this duality can harm another. The other pole, the debt, will then seek the first pole to achieve unity, as this happens the individual experiences the negativity they originally put out. This experience, even subconsciously, can sometimes produce a cancellation of the opposites and a subsequent resolution of the karmic distortions.
This principle of cancellation given here has general physics applications. When we say bringing together the two poles (to cancel the debt/karma), this is the same as phase conjugation in which two wave patterns, one reversed relative to the other (which simply means 180 degrees out of phase), come together and cancel one another. This was achieved with the Priore machine in the 1970s which was developed to cancel disease patterns, before the invention was suppressed.
Another application of cancellation and phase conjugation was achieved by the Germans during WWII. They coated their U-boat periscopes with a material which caused radar to be reflected by 180 degrees, thus canceling itself. Note that in these examples of cancellation there is no reference to the two poles coming together to form a unity as in the karmic examples - this wouldn't be recognized in our current physics anyway - but in fact they do higher dimensionally.
The duality configuration is exactly the same as given in the article on the basic energy unit: the two centripetal spirals of energy coming from the 4D periphery of the vortex to the centre, forms two poles and the subsequent oscillation between them. In terms of physics, the two poles shouldn't be visualized as in 3D, side by side, but one pole 'inside' the other 4th-to-3rd dimensionally (but is symmetrical with it).
Thus if we have two people, A and B, representing the perpetrator and the victim respectively, each will have this duality in their own mind, that is, perpetrator/victim polarity. Person A will, say, be dramatizing the perpetrator, and B the victim (they may change roles in another life).
Each person projects out into the external world the imbalance. Person A seeks a balance by finding a victim B, and person B seeks a balance in perpetrator A. Eventually the duality resolves into unity and wholeness but it appears as though it may take many roles of A and B, alternating from perpetrator to victim until they resolve the imbalance internally by observing their internal condition reflected outwards. Conscious awareness of this will speed up the process.
The ego is essentially a mass of unresolved dualities each influencing the individual to resolve the polarities into unity. We can draw the conclusion that a behavior which involves no effort to resolve these dualities results in learning by misadventure; that is, the basic imbalance reacts to seek balance - person A kills B, and A must now be killed. This is the slow and painful way of overcoming karma - it isn't very efficient.
Is there any other way this could be resolved? It is apparent that if A attempts self-improvement to a sufficient degree, or works in service to others, etc. the basic reaction is alleviated and A will not have to be killed in turn. The very activity of applying effort to bring about change of a positive nature will eventually cancel the karma.
A miraculous change would always be possible, however, in which A perceives the imbalance within self by some therapeutic process or otherwise, and realigns it, resolving the karma immediately. These negatively karmic thoughts are of low frequency and it appears that they are stored as crystallized imprints in cells. It would be ideal to release these, transmute these energies, before they manifest in physical reality.
The mechanism described here will adhere of course to rigorous physics but karma in general will entail various factors that we can envisage as superimposed on the rigid mechanism.
For example, intervention from high levels (already alluded to) and manipulation of karmic energies in situations where, for instance, a large group of people may experience a disaster to offset the karma of the whole race. Also, on the down side, karma can be coded into the DNA to incline people to commit negative acts and then (coded to) receive them back on themselves.
Possibly the most advanced method as far as knowledge is concerned, of handling karma, requiring not only persistence but a great deal of awareness, is through the recognition that the environment is reflecting one's inner state. More specifically, all problems, discomforts, conflicts impinging on one from the environment are fragments of oneself which one has disowned.
This applies even if one is merely an observer of a discomforting situation. If one can understand that these experiences reflect one's own attributes that one has rejected, and integrate these into self - bring them in, not push them away - Karma becomes pointless.
As one may have realized, this method will involve intricate organization of group relationships so that it works for everyone. Science would reject this as impossible but we say it isn't. It actually means that not only is oneself involved in this process but also others, even if it is a simple observation of another's problem.
For example, you observe another's illness (the importance of which will depend how close this person is to you), and if a positive attitude is taken it will include both oneself and one's view of the other person, aiding not only resolving one's own disowned experiences, relating to the observation, but also the other person's illness. The implication here is that more than the ill person may be involved in that person's illness.
Thus the strict and apparent unwavering mechanics of karma on the lower level must be viewed in relationship to a larger context involving other solutions for the karma, along with factors from higher influences, probabilities and intervention.
