7921reincarnation happened to me / Behind the curtain of the ego
- Jul 1, 2003Hi Gerry,
have you had ever a reincarnation experience?
And what personal revelations have you received, if you want to
I myself had a dream as a child, very early, and I have no
explanation for it. I dreamt something, but from it I knew that this
could not have been me dreaming, because I was so young. I concluded
that this must have dreamt a male person about the age of 35.
I was approx. 5years at that time. I don;t know much about
reincarnation, but certainly I have not forgotten about this dream,
because it was so extraordinary. Do you know what Gnosticism has to
say on reincarnation? I want to break the circle. It's a sad state.
Yesterday, I had a funny revelation: As I was pondering and reciting
in my mind the most fundamental principles of gnosticism, two things
happened. I understood that since the Ego is the psychological counter
[part of the demiurge, it is blind and creating its own world, a
world of mistakes, unreality...Any salvation when it is supposed to
come won't reach us as long as we are in the Ego-state. It came to me
as more of a "gnostic" experience I have to say, not exactly as an
intellectual conclusion at all. But simultaneously, I adopted this
understanding and asked where am I then. And the answer came you are
not even here (where I was standing), you are there, someplace else.
And I felt that only this part of me, never the Ego, could be
reconciled with God. Then, I felt that I was already reconciled with
God. And everything was perfect. Shortly after that while being in
this state of understanding that a part of me unknown not the ego, I
suppressed it, was already "accepted" by a higher being. I felt very
happy. Then I was lifted up, mentally, and I was afraid, so the
feeling left me. I walked home.
