Reincarnation The Neverending Journey
In Reincarnation The Neverending Journey an attempt is made to explore the conundrum of our existence. An existence that spans yesterday, today and even tomorrow. Questions surrounding the existence of the soul and our connections to the physical world, the fundamental mechanisms and the processes by which reincarnation operates through time, are carefully examined. Plausible revelations on memories and karma and their intrinsic connections to our lives today and tomorrow are explored. It is a Neverending Journey.. Your Neverending Journey....

The most difficult of the basic theosophical concepts is the one that is most simply expressed: we are all part of a greater unity. The cause and effect of karma can be understood, if not accepted in totality; people talk of human spirit without necessarily believing in anything greater; and rebirth in natural phenomena can be witnessed every day.

But we are so steeped in our own personality, individuality, separateness, that we shy away from the idea of merging with some amorphous collective. The Christian Heaven is for individual souls, and strong western egos want nothing less. Of course, a unity of souls is not less; it offers far, far more.
It is a concept that is best approached indirectly. Imagine listening to a powerful piece of music by yourself. Then listen to the same music in the company of others who are likely to respond in a similar way. Your personal experience is heightened by the sharing. Imagine going through a trauma with other people: being held hostage, making a dangerous journey. You might even find yourself putting personal issues on one side whilst making decisions for the common good. The people sharing danger will be brought closer, and this will remain long after the danger has passed. Even in these physical bodies that cannot be merged in any way we can feel and enjoy a sense of unity with others.

We know that the universe was created in a single explosive moment from what must have been a single unified entity ~ or non-entity! The resulting creation consists of many elements that make up a single universe. One day the universe will cease to expand, might contract, and return to total unity similar to that existing pre-big bang. On this time scale whatever elements exist in our present being (physical and spiritual) started unified and will finish unified. It does not seem improbable that there will be many minor comings together along the way. And no doubt our identities will survive in some form, for nothing disappears without trace.

The concepts of karma, reincarnation, spirit and unity form the framework of theosophy, and run through the book O Lanoo! Whether you want to ascribe the name God to the model is a personal choice, but whatever you call it this bigger picture can help to make sense of life. Extrapolating from these fundamentals can provide direction when faced with difficult choices, for it can be seen that we are part of evolution; that we are not judged arbitrarily by some external force; that we move forward by our own efforts; that we are impeded by our own mistakes; that we are not slaves to pre-destiny; that there is no force of evil. And if we all share a spiritual bond there can be no justification for violence or oppression, for all such abuses are directed ultimately at our own souls.

Author Bio :
Harvey Tordoff left a successful career in the business world to study theosophy. He wrote “O Lanoo!”, a poetical interpretation of the ancient Book of Dzyan, telling the story of Mankind, God and the Universe. Dzyan is the central theme of Madame Blavatsky’s “The Secret Doctrine”. Theosophical interests led naturally to ecology, and Tordoff has campaigned actively for an appropriate response to climate change, helping establish several community wind farms in the UK.
