It would be of no use if someone else
would tell us
about our past lives.
Each one of us must
sremember through himself...
Q.-Master Samael Aun Weor, all this Venezuelan Gnostic group would like to ask you a global question: could you tell us something regarding our past lives?
A.-VăI will tell you a great truth: if you attentively observe the different pseudo-esoteric and pseudo-occultist schools that exist in the world, you will see that these questions abound. A Medium would tell you that you are the reincarnation of ‘Napoleon Bonaparte’ or a reincarnation of one of the ‘Twelve Apostles’. Another one would tell you that ‘you were a certain Earl’ or ‘Mary Antoinette’ (I know more than half a dozen of reincarnated ‘Mary Antoinettes’).
In conclusion: they are all big; none of them is small… It is of no use to tell a person about her previous lives and, in practice, I realized that it is absurd. What really helps is for each one of us to remember his past lives. And one must begin with the previous life.
Lay down comfortably on your bed, with your arms and legs very relaxed, with a light, relaxed body, and then concentrate on the last moment of your past life, on the last second. This exercise should be done when you feel sleepy. You can use as Mantras: RA-OM, GA-OM. But, as I told you, the exercise should be done when you feel sleepy. The concentration on the last moment of your past life must be very deep.
It may be possible, during those moments, to be able to leave the Physical Body sleeping, but you (in that moment) will be able to see yourself on the death bed, surrounded by relatives; you will hear again the same words they said etc. etc. etc. Then you will remember the last moment of your past life.
Another random day, do the same exercise, in order to remember the last but one moment (you will be able to see the last but one moment) and like this go backwards, with each exercise, trying to remember the past life. The memories of the past life will come like ‘pictures’, scenes, happenings, until they will complete the whole memory of the past life.
Once the whole memory of your past life is complete (going backwards: from the old age to maturity, youth, childhood, birth), then you will be able to continue with the last but one life, then with the antepenultimate one, and like this you will remember the lives, until you will remember all of them. The Mantras are: RA-OM, GA-OM.
This is worth the effort: let us remember through ourselves, directly; let us become conscious of our past lives, and not let someone else come and tell us. I don’t want to imitate the example of those cheap pseudo-esoteric and pseudo-occultist schools; I want everyone to live this in a real way: to succeed to remember his past lives through himself.
