Knowledge of Oneself – Conference 12
RETURN AND RECURRENCE
A man is what his life is, if a man does not modify anything within himself, if he does not radically transform his life, if he does not work upon himself, he is miserably wasting his time .
Death is the return to the very beginning of one’s life, with the possibility of repeating it once again.
In the pseudo-esoteric and pseudo-occultist literature, Much has been said about the subject of successive lives, we’d better deal with successive existences.
Everyone’s life with all periods of time is always the same, repeating itself from existence to existence throughout the countless centuries.
Unquestionably, we continue in the seed of our descendants. This is something which has already been demonstrated.
The life of each one of us in particular is a living film which we take with us to eternity when we die.
Each one of us takes his film with him and return with it to project it again upon the screen of a new existence.
The repetition of dramas, comedies, and tragedies, is a fundamental axiom of the law of recurrence.
The same circumstances always repeat themselves in each existence. The actors of such scenes which are always repeated, are those people who live within us, the “selves”.
If we disintegrate those actors, those “selves” which originate the ever-repeating scenes of our lives, then the repetition of such circumstances would become something more than impossible.
Obviously there cannot be any scenes without actors, this is something indisputable, Irrefutable.
That is how we can liberate ourselves from the laws of Return and Recurrence; this is how we can truly free ourselves.
Obviously each one of the characters (selves) that we carry in our interior, repeats the same role from existence to existence ; if we disintegrate the “self”, if the actor dies, the role concludes.
Seriously reflecting on the law of Recurrence or on the repetition of scenes in each return, we discover through intimate self-observation, the secret springs of this matter.
If in the last existence we had a love affair at the age of twenty-five (25) it is indubitable that the “self” of such commitment will seek the lady of his dreams at the age of twenty-five (25) of the new existence.
If the lady in question was only fifteen (15) years old, the “self” of that affair will look for beloved in the new existence at just the same age.
It’s Clear to understand that the two Selves, both his and hers, will look for each other telepathically and meet once again in order to repeat the same love affair of their past existence.
Two enemies who fought to death in a past existence, will look for each other again in the new existence to repeat their tragedy at the corresponding age.
If two persons had a fight over real estate at the age of forty (40) years in the past existence, they will find each other telepathically at the same age in order to repeat the same thing.
Inside each one of us live many people full of commitments.
A thief carries within a “den” of thieves each with different criminal commitments. The murderer carries within itself a “club” of murderers, and the lustful carries a “brothel” in his psyche.
The critical thing about this subject matter is that the intellect ignores the existence of such people or Selves within oneself and of such commitments which fatally are fulfilled.
All these commitments of the Selves which dwell within us are happening out beneath our reasoning.
They are facts which we are ignorant of; things happen to us, events which are processed in our subconscious and in our unconscious. It has been rightly said that everything happens to us, just as when it rains, or when it thunders.
We really have the illusion of doing; however, we do nothing. Things happen to us; this is fatal, mechanical…
Our personality is only the instrument of different people (Selves), through which each of these people (Selves) fulfills its commitments.
Many things happen underneath our cognitive capacity, Unfortunately, we ignore what happens underneath our poor reasoning. We believe we are wise, when in really, we do not even know that we don’t know. We are miserable logs dragged by the raging waves on the sea of existence.
To come out of this misfortune, from this unconsciousness, and from this regrettable state in which we find ourselves, it’s only possible by dying in ourselves …
How could we awaken without first dying? only with death comes the new! If the seed does not die, the plant is not born.
The one who truly awakens acquires as an outcome, full objectivity of his or her consciousness, authentic enlightenment, happiness…
