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.

Unselfish Love, Kindness, Harmlessness.
These Things You Can Believe In.

Spirituality can mean many different things for many different people, but there is one thing that all good people around the world, regardless of where they come from, believe is true Spirituality - Unselfish Love. Also known by Christians as the Golden Rule, it can be found within the tenets of just about every major world religion. Like a smile, it is one of those things that transcends cultural boundaries. The Golden Rule was stated most clearly as a commandment by the being known as Jesus Christ:

"That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."

It cannot really get any more simple than that, right?? But for those who really take the time to think about what it means to really apply this rule in their every-day life, at work, at school, at home etc., and what it would mean if everyone else in the world were living by that rule, it becomes obvious that this is perhaps the most important and practical teaching that ever existed! What else could possibly be of greater importance than Unselfish Love, and it"s offspring "virtues", compassion, kindness and humility?

Unfortunately, people tend to wave the Golden Rule off saying ‘Oh.. I know about that.. kindergarten stuff” and just continue on their way going to ‘spiritual seminars’, listening to spiritual teachers and going from one spiritual hype to the other, while all the time caring only about themselves, and building their selfish desires and ego.

Spiritual knowledge is frequently a distraction from the essence of what spirituality really is all about. Especially if it is aimed at ways to reach success, wealth and money. A lot of the modern-day spirituality is aimed at GETTING richer, GETTING more wealth, GETTING what YOU WANT. It is often a selfish abuse of the Law of Attraction. This is not the true essence of spirituality and can never lead a person to true inner peace and happiness because these two things are not based in any way on any form of self-gain. It is the Self that loses everything, but the Spirit that (re)gains everything.

One can spend a whole lifetime in search of spiritual truths and only end up with more knowledge but no Love to give.
In the end, it all comes back to Love, giving Love and being a vehicle for the Will of God/The Universal Spirit/Your Inner Being.

From a song by Lauryn Hill: "Now I may have wisdom and knowledge on Earth. But if I speak wrong then what is it worth?"
