Beloved disciples, I shall speak to you of the problem of death.
Death is our crown. After death, the soul enters into the Astral Light.
When the hour of death comes, the Angel of Death approaches the deathbed. There is a choir of Angels of Death. This choir is conducted by the planet Saturn. Each Angel of Death carries a book. In this book are the names of all the souls who must depart from the flesh. No one dies a day before his appointed time.
The Angel of Death simply removes the soul from the body. The soul is linked to the body by a fine, heavenly cord of a silvery color. The Angel of Death breaks the cord so that the soul cannot re-enter the body.
Evolution of the Disembodied Soul
Between death and new birth, the “good souls” must come unrolled within each one of the planetary auras whose mixtures form that which all books of spiritualism denominate “planes.” – Samael Aun Weor, The Zodiacal Course
The legend of Zoroaster states, “Everyone whose good deeds exceed his sin by three grams, goes to heaven; everyone whose sin is greater, goes to hell; while he, in whom they are equal, remains in the Hamistikan until the future body or resurrection.”
Nowadays, in these times of perversity and crude atheistic materialism, a portion of the disembodied join the submerged mineral kingdom (the Infernal Worlds) after the judgment.
Also, many are the millions who enter a new womb immediately, without having had a good vacation within the Superior Worlds.
Reincarnation and Karma
Within the bosom of infinity, the soul sees thousands of indescribable beings or Angels, Archangels, Thrones, Virtues, Powers, etc., and then it understands that those divine beings were people who perfected themselves and who suffered greatly in the school of life.
The soul understands that life is a school, and it wishes to return to that school to perfect itself. When the soul wishes to return to that school of life to perfect itself, when the soul wants to return to the world, then the Angels of Destiny take that soul away to a new home. The Angels of Destiny unite with the soul or, we should say, connect the soul with the spermatozoon of the father’s semen. This spermatozoon—chosen by the soul who is going to be born—fertilizes the womb. The soul stays within the maternal womb for nine months, forming its new physical body.
In the inner worlds, there is a temple where the forty-two Judges of Karma officiate. They are the forty-two jackals. They are named as such because they cover their heads with a kind of religious mask shaped like the head of a wolf dog or jackal. These forty-two Masters are the masters of the Law of Compensation: the Law of Karma.
Everything evil that we do to others in past reincarnations we must pay for in the following incarnation.
One pays Karma not only for the evil one does, but also for the good that one fails to do when able to do it. He who has the means with which to pay, pays and comes out well in his dealings. He, who does not have the means to pay, undoubtedly must pay with inevitable pain.
Saint Paul said:
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? - 1 Corinthians 3:16
The “Spirit of God” is our Divine Spirit; it is the Innermost. Thus, the Innermost is the most divine thing that we have within ourselves. It is God among us. The Innermost is beautiful, sublime, pure.
The Innermost has two things: the soul and the body. The soul is in contact with the sympathetic nervous system. The Innermost is in contact with the cerebrospinal system; that is, with the cerebrospinal column.
