Reincarnation or collective unconsciousness?

Reincarnation or collective unconsciousness?

A question, that is also some what personal, as once I did believe in reincarnation, this was the time I found importance in white light movements and fluffy new age ideas. Meanwhile we have gone on in life and especially years have passed, time that I used to read and study. One of the people that is of great importance to me in this period, is Carl Gustav Jung.

His work is enormous, especially where he writes, about the (psychoid) Archetypes, our Shadow, the collective unconsciousness and lot's more. It did make me reconsider my point of view on matters, that I accepted earlier on, like reincarnation.

I was always drawn to ancient Egypt and mostly the time of the Pharao's Amenhotep III, Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten), Tut-Ankh-Amun and Ai. This was so strong, that at that time, it was clear for me, I had lived in that period and was reincarnated. Always sounds good, maybe some good stuff for a movie, but that's all.

With studying Jung, and his writings, it became clear for me, that most likely I just glanced in the collective unconsciousness, where all the memories of mankind are collected and which also can be named as the Akasha chronicles.

In any case, it changed my insights, and was the start of a further quest to personal truth. Reincarnation maybe is interesting for those who are afraid of death, it is to many times used to hold the masses in line. In the west, we rather quickly talk about it, but in the east its a terrible something, it controls the lives of many millions of people, who can't escape the effect of it, and are just used by fraudulent people, who tell them, that they will have to suffer for many lives to come, before they will be enlightened.

Reason enough to take some distance  from all this, and take a more clear view. OK, I admit that what Jung brings forward, is also just a theory, but much more acceptable then what eastern religions want to make us believe.

For me its easy, dead is dead, no going to any fluffy paradise, or be reborn, we get one change to it, so make the best for it. Our soul (inner self) will not go to any afterlife. This idea is just used by, especially the monotheistic faiths, to keep men under their control. Be good, live according to their dictates and you will go, after death to paradise, your life will be one misery, but at least, you have the promise of eternal sitting on a cloud. Pity, that the words they speak, don't seem to have any meaning for these religious guys, as usually their own life isn't so nice. Something we can conclude out of the many scandals, in for example the Roman Catholic Church.

Well thanks, if that is our choice, then rather not. I prefer to enjoy my life here, according to my own believes and insights, and we will see what comes. Even if I don't believe (any more) in an afterlife, I know my memories and as such, maybe a part of who I am will remain in the collective unconsciousness, which you can also see as a kind of continuing. At least, for as long as you are remembered, once you are lost in the memories of men, the energy will fade away.

Maybe this explains, why people who remember previous lives, always claim to have been kings, princes, pharao's, popes, bishops and so on. As these persons are mostly remembered, their energy in the collective doesn't fade, but even gets stronger and is easier to reach.

In any case, we should consider twice before accepting any teachings by men, and aim toward the (Black) Light in our lives. I have found it in Sutekh. May in whatever form, it comes to you, guide you on your personal path to truth & wisdom. And above all, enjoy your life to the fullest, don't trust on the hollow stories of what comes after death.
