The idea of reincarnation is as old as man. Plato, Pythagoras (who was a past life of Kuthumi), the ancient Egyptians, Greek, Hindus and Buddhists all believed in reincarnation.

The word “reincarnation” comes from the Latin and consists of two words: “re” means “again” and “carne” means “flesh.”

The purpose of life is to realize God. The purpose of incarnating on Earth is to realize God on a planetary or Earthly level and thus break free from the wheel of rebirth.

As long as we don’t break free from the wheel of rebirth, we have to keep reincarnating over and over again. So after we physically die, our Soul has to take on a physical body (or body of “flesh”) again and come back to Earth to learn outstanding lessons.

We break free from the wheel of rebirth by learning our lessons, learning to master our mind, feelings, emotions and Earth life, and by transforming our consciousness into Christ Consciousness. In short, we break free from the wheel of rebirth by becoming an Integrated Ascended Master.

An Integrated Ascended Master is someone who knows himself to be an incarnation of God and who makes a conscious effort to demonstrate this realization both in body, mind, emotion and Spirit – every day, in every way, to the best of his ability. It is precisely this state of consciousness that allows us to break free from the wheel of rebirth that we have been bound to ever since the so-called “Fall of Man” back in Lemurian and Atlantean times.

So, reincarnation is really a tool that was set up to undo the “Fall of Man.” Humanity began to fall when we collectively began to fall unconscious of the truth that we are all Gods! As the Bible says, “Ye are Gods and know it not!” The purpose of life and also of reincarnation is to realize that indeed we are all Gods and Divine, always have been and always will be – each one of us!
