No mention of karma and reincarnation in Liber Legis

Postby Hermitas » Wed Feb 14, 2018 1:09 pm

I have some questions that have been stewing. I'm going to go ahead ask them.

Liber Legis just makes it sound like when you die, you dissolve out into bliss, and that's it. Unless I missed it, there's no mention of karma or reincarnation into that karma.

Why is that?

Because you die. Whether a King or a fool. Death is all that awaits.

Now this seemingly limitless thing, this sometimes still quiet thing, this sometimes roiling thing called Being; that will never die. Heck, all it does is seem to be. Or maybe, all it seems to be is just being. Ever there, always moving, never changing. It is not you.

I think it's because Liber Legis isn't written to persuade people one way or the other.

"He that is righteous shall be righteous still; he that is filthy shall be filthy still."

Belief in reincarnation tends to make people more circumspect about the course of their lives and what it might mean for the next one.

Another concept to contemplate in meditation might be: "Re" incarnation is a misnomer. The "continuity of existence, the omnipresence of my body" suggest one and one incarnation alone, with many many many many mirrors I suppose. But I get ahead of myself.
