Having been bathed in the psychic light, I look at things much differently. I believe that most people’s values would change if they also knew about the reincarnation system. For example, I once had a great grandfather who had a reputation for cruelty. He was an Italian man who participated in the First World War. His claim to fame was that after he was captured on the battlefield, he later leapt from a prisoner of war train and returned to his home village. There he hid until the war’s end when he later immigrated to America. I heard stories that late in his life he would buy expensive ceremonial robes for his parish priest to wear during mass. In retelling that story, my grandmother (his daughter) would mutter that he was trying to buy his way into heaven to make up for his cruelties. For some reason today I remembered this story. But I looked at it in a new light. I mused about what my great grandfather would have done if he knew that no matter what he did, he was guaranteed passage to that higher vibrational experience called “Heaven” after he died. Would he still have bought those expensive robes? I don’t think so. Is it only the fear of Hell or the loss of Heaven that compels most people to do good deeds for others? If this fear of Hell or the loss of Heaven belief was eliminated, would the amount of good deeds in the world plummet? I know it would go down, at what percentage I have no clue. I guess that the point I am making is that if you adopt the reincarnation system as reality, any good deed that you do comes only from your heart. There is no short term payoff for you other than satisfaction knowing that you helped. In the very long term there is a benefit in that if you make good deeds a habit in your lives, you will have to live less of them and then you would spend more time in that higher vibrational experience called “Heaven”.
