Have you ever actually wondered why we reincarnate? Why is it that we have such short lives, and, for the most part, the only spiritual paths are very dubious religions and teachers? Or why those religions are built upon hierarchal structures? Have you ever wondered why there is so much evil in the world? And why such evil people seem to become the leaders of men? And the big question concerning reincarnation: Why don’t we remember our past lives? How can we resolve our past if we don’t even remember it?
We go through our lives with our past lives haunting us, yet we cannot see them. We carry the residual habits and traits from our former selves, yet we have no idea where they came from. For the most part, we don’t have any idea how they are affecting us now. Therefor, how can we ever resolve our past issues? Especially since they affect us even in this life?
What religious person or spiritual teacher, or channeler or yogi has ever answered this question satisfactorily: Why don’t we remember our past lives? The answer may be chilling.
It is described in Vedic and Puranic texts that humankind lived very long life spans during the golden age. They spent their lives in deep meditation and were in balance and harmony with Mother Nature. Then something happened. In ancient legends, myths and texts, there is described the fall of man.
“Man is perfect at his origin, a divine being who has degenerated into what we are.” – R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz (Egyptian Miracle)
“…primeval man was the truest model and representative of man, and that all human progress since, though upward in some things, has been in the main an unceasing deterioration…All the world that came next after primeval man honored and even worshipped their first fathers as very gods of light, knowledge and greatness.” – Joseph A. Seiss (Gospel of the Stars)
“Then she added a prophecy in which she foretold the approaching end of the Divine Age and the beginning of a new one, in which the summers would be flowerless, the cows milk less and women shameless and men strengthless, in which there will be trees without fruit and seas without fish, when old men would give false judgments and legislators make unjust laws, when warriors would betray one another and men would be thieves and there would be no more virtue in the world.” – (Prophesy of Badb, War Queen of Ireland)
