Dear revd. readers, let me first of all apologize to all for not keeping in touch with you through these posts as I was extremely busy and tied up since the past four weeks.
I wish I had some more time in hand so that I could concentrate on my passion-meditation and contemplation. However, at last all the household repairs and upkeeps are over and I fondly resume my heartfelt ardour and fascination of documenting my spiritual and occult experiences that occur on some blessed days. 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 very engaged in planning and materializing one more pilgrimage due shortly; one that I have cherished and dreamt of accomplishing since the past many years. It is going to be a dream come true and my mind is all the time thinking and planning this dream project so that it becomes most fruitful…….will talk about it in the next concluding post. Yes, 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 and after the break an entirely new segment shall be resumed. The old readers are accustomed to this pattern that I have been following since blogging happened; it is for the new guests or visitors to know about it.
If you remember we had discussed how we are born in the last article. We shall now go a bit deeper on this subject so that we get to understand this complicated issue of birth or reincarnation.

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 a 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 the child’s spiritual progress. Some souls barge in uninvitingly without the mother’s knowledge if she is unprepared, unconcerned or in an intoxicated state and 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 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 when 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 communuion 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!
