I'm Not Reincarnating Again

One of the most common statements I hear from clients is that they are not reincarnating again. I used to say this too. I realised that I didn't have a choice in the matter, but I saw awakening as a way of getting off the wheel of life and death. Most of us have heard the theory of awakening being the end of reincarnation.

So why would someone not want to come back? Because it's so challenging here for some people. Some of us have an obscene amount of karma we're working through, and that has not made life pleasant. It's only natural to not want to go through that again.

So is it true? Does awakening end reincarnation?

We go from living believing we're a separate person (from ego), to living from unity - no longer able to believe in separation. We see and experience ourselves as awareness, through the body and notice ourselves everywhere. All the people and objects we thought were there, we now see clearly that it was just ourselves (as Source) all along. Wearing a costume of a dog, presenting as what we thought was our child, the moon in the sky... This is not an altered state, in fact it is very ordinary. The soul (which is a fragment of awareness) is able to live fully through that body (which is also God), and this is very enjoyable.

Awakening doesn't end there. It continues on for some beyond the bliss of unity to a stage called no self. Now I can't talk about the stage experientially as I am only in unity so far, but have had foretastes of the next shift. This is the time where the soul has fulfilled it's purpose and is absorbed back into the One. The body then operates directly with God at the wheel. My understanding is that this is the end of reincarnation. As there is no soul left to come back into form (as it's dissolved), that's the end of that fragment's journey.

Whether this is true or not, it's not easy to hear if we're desperately not wanting to come back. It sounds like a very long process, and it typically is.

So now for some good news

There is a theory that the point that we get to with awakening in a life is carried over to the next, so you don't have to start from scratch again. Plus all the healing work you do is working through your karma, so logically speaking, you should attract an easier life next time around. Loving, healthy parents might make for a very different experience on this planet!

But the best news is that somewhere along the awakening journey you stop caring about whether you come back or not. The more you heal and see through the illusion of separation, the more this idea about reincarnation drops away. You make peace with the idea that you don't know whether you will or not, and you won't remember feeling this way in future lives anyway.

All ideas about the future gradually drop away, and it includes this thought and all the suffering that is felt on the back of it. You can finally enjoy life, so much so that you become excited at the prospect of what may be around the corner, in this life or the next. It is truly possibly to live a life filled with happiness and fulfillment, regardless of how hard it's been to this point.
