a Quicker Comeback
P Blavatsky on shortening the period between lives
progress is obtained by effort through many lives and an integral part of that
spiritual progress come during the interlife period of Kama Loka and Devachan
when the progress made and lessons learned by the previous life are
of shortening the interlife period are obvious and H P Blavatsky postulates in
“Is the Desire to Live Selfish” that this is an integral and logical part of
the spiritual development process. Clearly a life of excessive materialism or
malice would entail a much longer time in Kama Loka than would a life in which
spiritual progress were made. The length of the interlife period is therefore
relevant at all levels of development.
as spiritual progress is being made, the after death states are not only
shortened but ultimately dispensed with altogether. Beyond that even
incarnation itself is no longer needed and becomes a matter of choice.
from Is the Desire to Live Selfish ?
who have studied the occult teachings concerning Devachan and our after-states,
will remember that between two incarnations there is a considerable period of
subjective existence. The greater the
number of such Devachanic periods, the greater is the number of years over
which this evolution is extended.
aim of the occultist is therefore to so control himself as to be able to
regulate his future states, and thereby gradually shorten the
of his Devachanic existence between two incarnations. In the course of his progress, there comes a
time when, between one physical
his next rebirth, there is no Devachan but a kind of spiritual sleep, the shock
of death, having, so to say, stunned him into a state
unconsciousness from which he gradually recovers to find himself reborn, to
continue his purpose. The period of this
sleep may vary from
to two hundred years, depending upon the degree of his advancement. But even this period may be said to be a
waste of time,
all his exertions are directed to shorten its duration so as to gradually come
to a point when the passage from one state of existence into another is almost
his last incarnation, as it were, for the shock of death no more stuns him.
