Mechanism of human reproduction is amazing.
After multiple decades of heavy usage, human body can still create another brand new human body (baby).
Everything new out of everything old. How fascinating!
Assuming that you believe in spirits…do you think baby’s spirit was created by parents, or is it a part of parents’ spirits?
Reikongaku says: body and mind? Yes. Spirit? No.
According to Reikongaku, spirits are something that have been in existence for much longer time, and for some reason, only tiny part of them were pulled into physical world to be born as babies. This is also called reincarnation.
So, each baby, although its body and mind are brand new, its spirit is pretty old in worldly term.
But at birth, spirit is just as tiny and innocent as physical body. It does not remember anything from its past.
Reincarnation is often perceived as rebirth of individual consciousness in its entirety, that is, when i die, i will retain my consciousness the same way i do now, and when i’m born again, my entire consciousness will be born again as well.
Reikongaku explains differently. When i die, i will retain my consciousness the same way i do now, but what will be born again is only a tiny part of me that i won’t even know when that happens.
Why not the entire consciousness? What part of it will be born again? What for?
By asking, you just opened an entirely new series in the study of Reikongaku.
Reincarnation can add or subtract. When we were born, we didn’t start from zero, we started from minus…
