Topical Discussion: Incarnating Souls, Children


Location image of event venue



"How, though, can a person be born again? He cannot enter into the womb of his mother a second time and be born, can he?” asked Nicodemus

Yeshua's reply was “Unless one is born from water and spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God.”

Indeed. This Christian phrase is understood very differently by mystics: reincarnation. Individual souls come to Earth with their own personality, karma and character. So the question is, whether mother, father, aunt, uncle or simple friend: what spiritual responsibility does the mystic have to Divinity's purified, incarnating souls?

Why did the ancient mystery schools place so much emphasis on the prenatal influence of the thoughts on unborn children: both body and soul?

"Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

"You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

"You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable." ~ Kahlil Gibran
