“Dear Almine, it was said that it is a privilege to be born on Earth to get particular experience through this body in this density. Why then in Eastern religions the necessity to get out of the cycle of rebirths on Earth and attain Nirvana is so much emphasized?”
Though there’s value in Eastern religions (as there is some in most religions), there are also several major flawed premises as the foundation for their belief system. These are:
- That within the eternal flow of unfolding life, there’s a point of arrival (i.e. Nirvana).
- That being in the soul world is somehow more advanced than being in the physical world. The soul world appears to offer relief from physical suffering, but is the place of resolving emotional karma.
- That immortality of the soul (which means not having to incarnate), is superior to immortality of the body (which means not having to die). Neither one can be a permanent state since there is no arrival point in eternity – just a delaying of the next step, which is resurrection.
