Preventing Souls from Embodying

Benjamin Franklin wanted his epitaph* to reflect it, General George S. Patton had personal knowledge of it, at the end of his life, Jack London wrote about it and at the age of three, Mozart was proof of it. What is it you ask? Why, reincarnation of course.

Many famous people throughout history and of all faiths have believed in re-embodiment. One or more of the four above might be ready to reincarnate right now. Will they be prevented or will they be given the chance to balance their karma and fulfill their destiny? Imagine having the wonderful opportunity to be the parents of a statesman/inventor, a leader of men, a writer of literature or a gifted composer. The 'choice' was made before all parties took embodiment. Now whether the parents fulfill their end of the agreement is another story.

We live in an age when black is white and vice versa. These four would be shocked to learn that a sucker fish, a snail darter, a kangaroo rat or even a murderers life is more important than the soul waiting to embody. It's difficult to make the right choices when the truth is withheld and the path has so many forks.

The foremost authorities on Christianty in the last two thousand years wanted to know about another famous man. These men, steeped in doctrine like none who have ever walked the planet,

10 "...asked him , saying, Why then say the scribes that E-li'as [Elijah] must first come?

11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, E-li'as truly shall first come, and restore all things.

12 But I say unto you, That E-li'as is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist." Mat. 17:10-13

Hello! That seems pretty obvious to me unless you start believing the spin doctors of Christian doctrine. For me, I'll take the disciples and Jesus at face value. Ellijah reincarnated as John the Baptist. You don't even need the Holy Spirit to figure that one out, just common sense. Spin doctors are not a new phenomena.

Perhaps the most damaging aspect of the 'choice,' is the part karma plays. There is an old saying in India that, 'we have been everybody's brother, sister, mother and father.' Many of us have been on earth so long that we build up karmic relations with groups of souls. Giving birth allows all those involved to balance the karma they have together. It is no accident. All sorts of cosmic forces and timing of events come into play for the right time and place of birth. The new soul looks down upon his loving parents as a blessed event, a chance to make amends for the past and/or help his parents, sisters and brothers. The most unfortunate part, is that the stopping of this process creates more and more karma every time it happens, even out of wedlock. God has a plan and he works with changing conditions. Adoption should be the first option if the baby is unwanted. In Helen Wambaugh's book, 'Life Before Life,' she found out through regression that adopted children ended up with the adopted parents they mutually agreed to be with before embodiment. I don't know about you but that blows my mind. Truly, every hair on our head is numbered. The outplaying of karma is wondrous to behold.

To balance the karma of a wrong decision, the obvious choice is to pray that the soul be allowed to be a part of your life in what ever way imaginable. At the very least, the would be parents could pray for the well being of the soul who wanted to be a part of their life and karmic circle on earth.

*Franklin wrote this epitaph at age 22 but was never used:

The Body of B. Franklin Printer,
Like the Cover of an Old Book,
Its Contents Torn Out
And Stripped of its Lettering and Gilding,
Lies Here Food for Worms,
But the Work shall not be Lost,
For it Will as He Believed
Appear Once More
In a New and more Elegant Edition
Revised and Corrected
By the Author
