What I Believe
September 2, 2014
This is the English translation of one of my regular texts to my lifetime partner and to my tried-and-tested friends as my pre-paid load was about to run out.
I'm sharing my inmost feelings to those who know me the most. Here is the declaration of my convictions. We are spiritual beings.
We have been here since the beginning of the universe. We were in complete union with God and we helped create the earth and the heavens.
Then, we have been separated from God. It is a long story why, and religion (and Satan) has nothing to do with it. We need to return where we came from. The only way to do that is to purify our soul. This is the reason why we are living in the physical world - and this is the meaning of life.
But because of the things we did and did not do, we have to start all over again. This is what is called reincarnation, the truth of the soul's journey through different lifetimes to rediscover its true nature.
Jesus taught this but it was taken out of the Bible so the Church would be the only way to "salvation." Here is where what both the wise and the ignorant call karma comes in. Everything we do or don't do comes back to us. If we hurt someone, we will experience the pain in the present or in a future lifetime. Everything in our lives now comes from how we have lived in the present and the previous ones.
But we also reap the good things we sow. Karma is just how things work, like gravity in the air and bouyancy in the water. Once our soul remembers, it is then that we achieve enlightenment.

Text to a friend who is asking for my advice because he is going through a misunderstanding with his friends
What is most important is that your conscience is clear. At the end of the day, that is all that matters. Your friendship with them remains steadfast after all these years, and you have become a part of their lives as they are to yours.
They would eventually come to understand. Just give them time because they are in a state of shock. This too shall pass. Everything will go back to the way it was if these are friends worth keeping. You know you have nothing done wrong. God, whatever you conceive Him to be, is your witness.
