As I invoke the Divine Light and my blessed Masters at sunset now, I am so much at peace with my inner self that my soul imbues my house with those peaceful rays……May those peaceful rays reach you, may these glorious words change your life, may this post alter and shift your thinking process and may you always be praying to God to give you a higher purpose and higher path so that you know your divine Spirit……
I have also been engaged in planning and materializing one more pilgrimage due shortly; one that I have cherished and dreamt of accomplishing since the past many years. The next post will be the concluding post of segment-D after which I shall take a short break like I did in the past. After the break an entirely new segment shall be resumed.

From- How are we born-I
I have learnt that we are reborn in a state of mind that we died in! Reborn is not the time of birth when one is free of mother’s body. It is that time when the soul comes from the astral plane and enters like a light in the collusion of both the partners….
Now the question is what is the procedure? What happens at this particular time frame termed as conception or commencement of a new life?
There are all sorts of unborn souls who are hanging around in the ethereal space waiting to enter any womb just because they are restless or impatient to take on a new body. They are able to see a womb from afar that is ready for conception. Many times those who take a new birth in haste regret their decisions later on as they realize that the mother or father are not good parents and possess many unwanted qualities thus backsliding their spiritual progress. Some souls barge in uninvitingly without the mother’s knowledge if she is unprepared, unconcerned or in an intoxicated state and they torment her. It could also be a tramp soul or a soul from the lower regions who gets into the womb without invocation or invitation in such cases.
If the mother to be rejects mentally in her consciousness any lesser soul, then that tramp or waylaid soul cannot get embedded in the mother’s womb. The women who strongly desire to have a virtuous, moral and pious soul as their progeny do not allow any undesirable souls to enter their physical body and the unwanted and undesirable souls are rejected at the very outset. While careless, casual, intoxicated women stand hardly any chance of conceiving and mothering a great soul. Therefore one’s own will, more so of the mother to be, plays a pivotal role in selecting one’s progeny. And if we, as individuals know this nature’s way of working, we shall be prudent in selecting our parents to a large extent. However, according to our past done karmas, our destiny gets fixed before we are born yet if we are conscious of the fact that we shall not sleep again in spiritual ignorance or stray randomly in the astral world, we shall take a new birth with higher consciousness. And that’s what the yogis do! They plan their next life now and decide and choose their parents carefully, pick the type of expected life ahead in accordance to the laws that govern the Universe and with the will of God they try to make the most with what choices are available to them.
(Refer post What happens after we die? and How should one die? ) When the soul leaves the astral plane to come down to the Earth to take a new birth, the path that it covers is lit with light according to the state of mind of the soul. As most of the souls are in darkness and ignorance when they rush down, the channel or path that they cover in the mind is dark as there is absence of divine Light in it! The mediocre soul’s path is hazy while the illumined souls come down with dizzying speed as their path is full of radiance and glow!! If one is sensitive enough and has meditated for a long period of time then such a person can in fact, see with the spiritual eye the glorious path of the yogis. They travel from one end to another in the ethereal space either with the aim of a specific purpose or before they travel down to enter a womb to reincarnate. There is so much light around them!!!
If you learn to sing, chant, pray, hum the glory of God now, the consciousness of God will elevate you. You will not go or run wild here and there just to be born randomly. The purpose of living here and also in the next life can be easily planned deliberately if we develop acute awareness about how should we be born again in our next life by performing glorious, sacred and purposeful missionary acts now.
P.S Yesterday was Guru Purnima, the auspicious day for all the disciples, learners, seekers and devotees. As I was preoccupied with other seva or service to my Gurus, I could not accomplish enough yesterday to complete this post with my thanksgiving and profound gratitude towards all my Gurus. This post is dedicated to my Param Guru Shri Mahavatar Babaji for all his love, support and constant guidance during meditation and early morning communion that I have with him. May he bless us all profusely and may he remove our darkness and light up our our spiritual path with mental brilliance!
