For as long as I can remember I have not understood why it is said that some people go to heaven and some go to hell – it never really made any sense to me.
I did notice however, that someone could create heaven or hell on earth for themselves, or other people, depending on their personal life choices.
I could not understand either, that if God was love, why would he send some people to hell to rot for eternity, and others that were good to fluffy clouds, to kind of um, well… sit around with angels playing harps. Even though I was quite scared of the hell option I remember feeling heaven felt a bit boring, a bit mundane and a bit surreal.
I had a limited religious upbringing but found the concept of good and bad, heaven and hell creep in everywhere from hymns at school to girl guides; it was always there as a constant reminder that good was really the only option or you could end up in a pit of fire next to some ugly guy with horns on his head, forever and ever.
Looking back, I can see that as a child I struggled with the concept of heaven and hell. What I was being told did not add up but nor did the concept of ‘when we died we just died’ – end of story.
I was about 6 when I first saw a film with a skeleton of a dead person in it, and when I asked what it was, I remember being mortified when told this is what happens to us when we die; this felt even more ridiculous and shocking to me than the heaven and hell theory. Surely just to end, kaput, voila, could not be it? It felt so flat, so very pointless, I was suitably shocked but not convinced.
It was at secondary school when I was introduced to the concept of karma. Karma made sense to me; the idea that how we live directly affects others and if we are to cause harm, then ultimately that harm comes back to us.
What I did not understand with karma was that how come there were some people out there who had directly harmed others yet looked like they were living a perfect life, financially set up with all the trimmings and looked like they had it all and for some good people life looked really harsh? If karma existed I wanted to know how some people seemed to get away with it.
Also at school I was introduced to the concept of reincarnation: this immediately resonated with me, it was a great aha moment, my body breathed a sigh of “yes, of course I knew this to be true.” Yet this version of reincarnation had its flaws; the way it was taught made it all very mystical, random and a bit airy-fairy and the fact we could come back as an insect or random animal just did not cut it for me.
Leaving school I went to work with the elderly, many of whom were in the last stages of life, so naturally the question about death and life stayed with me. These questions remained unanswered until, that is, I met Serge Benhayon.
Meeting Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine
Through the teachings on karma and reincarnation as presented by Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine, it became clear I had been short-changed – the versions I had been given so far were a far cry from the intricate and precise science that I heard when attending Universal Medicine presentations.
I realised the missing link to what I had been taught before was responsibility, and how the quality in which we choose to live each life affects our next and that the quality in which we live and pass over in this life is what prepares the quality for our next. Reincarnation I realised, is definitely not random or left to chance, but instead a very direct and accurate universal science.
“Could it be our karma to not consciously know about the fact of reincarnation simply because we have chosen to live irresponsibly and therefore have blocked seeing to what extent we are indeed energetically responsible?” (Teachings and Revelations, Serge Benhayon, page 356)
I now know karma is not what we get sent from some judgmental and resentful God. Karma is about being offered another choice: it is about learning to be responsible for our choices, and from this, evolving and healing.
I’ve seen that we can choose to learn from what we experience or not, hence being shown it more clearly and profoundly at a later time.
We can choose to deal with our past choices and our karma or we can push them away or avoid them, so it may look like we are having a great time, great house, great career etc., but all the while our unloving choices are burying themselves deeper and deeper, waiting for a more intense outcome either in this lifetime or the next.
Likewise we can commit to dealing with our karma / past choices and watch as things come up and out to be exposed for us. Evolution is about truth, not what your life looks like on the outside.
The universe is such an ordered and intricate place where nothing is left to chance.
For me it makes sense that we bring through the way in which we last lived, as how we have chosen to live in our last life / lives directly impacts this one.
I have felt in my body, patterns that I know go deeper than just this life. In truth it is great to feel these patterns as by being more aware of them we are more able to deal with and break any unhealthy thought configurations or behaviours that are in fact eons old.
It is not a belief, fantasy, or science fiction but a deep knowing in my body that we have all been here many times before. This is why our hurts can sometimes seem so old and strong (as we could have been carrying them a long, long time), or a reason as to why we can’t seem to shake a certain behaviour that cannot be equated to this lifetime.
I have come to realise that each one of us is a collection of our previous lives lived and choices made. This also helps me to understand why things happen and that we have the opportunity to learn from this in terms of taking responsibility for our choices and the way we have lived, and are living.
Now when I talk to someone, I know and understand I am not just seeing a reflection of their choices in this current life but a reflection of their choices of every life they have ever lived!
Knowing the truth of reincarnation allows us not only to take more responsibility for the way we are living in this life, but also to prepare for our next life and to be able to pass over in a more dignified way.
When we know we are coming back, we can assess what it is we want to let go of, reflect more responsibly on our life lived, and review how we would make different choices, given that we will be doing it again.
We can therefore use this life and our eventual dying as a time of great healing to leave behind all that is not true, and confirm the love that we are, in preparation for the next.
Whether we believe it or not reincarnation is a given. By understanding the true meaning of reincarnation we can see what an absolutely amazing opportunity it offers us to grow and to evolve.

Reincarnation offers an opportunity to heal and evolve, ‘Whether we believe it or not reincarnation is a given. By understanding the true meaning of reincarnation we can see what an absolutely amazing opportunity it offers us to grow and to evolve.’
Reincarnation is perpetual opportunity, a gift from God to have another go and another go and yet another, until such time that we don’t need any more goes because we are back to where we began, in the full knowing that we are and indeed have always been and will always be the consciousness of God.
When we are evolving, our appreciation is deepening and this deepening is the relationship we have with our divinity and intimacy that we have with others. Being intimate is not sexual but is letting people in, then appreciation and intimacy are like twin sisters, you can-not have one without the other; evolution is guarantied.
If people go to heaven or hell what then? What’s next?
“By understanding the true meaning of reincarnation we can see what an absolutely amazing opportunity it offers us to grow and to evolve.” Reincarnation offers the opportunity and responsibility of evolution for everyone.
Responsibility for how we live is paramount, ‘I realised the missing link to what I had been taught before was responsibility, and how the quality in which we choose to live each life affects our next and that the quality in which we live and pass over in this life is what prepares the quality for our next.’
Absolutely agree, it’s a blessing and a truly loving support for us to evolve back to the love we are in essence, not about punishment, revenge or condemnation.
I think it’s really important in life to keep discerning what we are presented with, as in not overriding or ignoring what we feel if something doesn’t feel right, like you share with being presented with the concept of heaven and hell, or end of life just being a dead end, and to keep being open to seeing what truly does resonate with us.
Understanding the truth of reincarnation gives purpose to and for life that is otherwise is missing.
“Whether we believe it or not reincarnation is a given” – absolutely. Reincarnation is a science. It is much wiser to embrace the true love that is reincarnation than to pretend we only have one life and some are just born lucky.
True hell is the one that we do not realise we are in. At least if we can see we are in hell, we will want to get out of it as fast as we can.
Serge Benhayon’s quote makes sense – it is very convenient to not have be able to see or take responsibility for the way we have lived so the majority of us go what a whole lot of nonsense reincarnation is. I played that game for quite some lives, but deep deep down couldn’t ignore what was the truth and how I could feel and knew that reincarnation was exactly the basis of our immortal beings. It feels really amazing to live in a way that is taking this level of responsibility seriously, and knowing the impact that my every choice matters. Everything matters.
Just imagine how the world would change if, from young we were raised to know the truth of reincarnation and that how we live this life will impact on our next, and not only that, how we live in every moment also affects everyone else on this planet. It would certainly bring a deep sense of responsibility to every choice we make, so much so that it will become our natural lived way, not something we have to think about. I like the sound of this world.
How we live in every moment has a knock on effect with ourselves, and those around us, ‘how we live in every moment also affects everyone else on this planet.’
I know that I have had several previous lives only from living this life and feeling deep connections with people and place where it all feels so familiar and like you were with them or in that place like yesterday.
It is interesting that reincarnation is a topic where people can have very differing views, for me it makes perfect sense that reincarnation exists and that it offers us an opportunity to evolve in this life as preparation for our next life, a constant unfolding process that asks us to be responsible and to commit to life in full.
I agree Anonymous regarding the growth reincarnation offers. It also takes our relationships with ourselves and one another much deeper. It strips everything back to the quality of energy and cycles we choose to live in and arise ourselves from (or bury ourselves deeper in).
Reincarnation offers us the opportunity to evolve and return to who we are in truth.
‘Evolution is about truth, not what your life looks like on the outside’ a gem, and a reminder for all of us that it’s about coming back to truth and not improving our lives to have a better version of the life we live especially when it’s not true. We are forever offered another chance and karma is the most loving thing for all of us a way that says you are love, and you are forever given another opportunity to live and be more of that love. Thank you to Universal Medicine for bringing back a true understanding to karma, love and responsibility, a gift for all of humanity.
Heaven and hell is an odd concept, like Santa only giving toys to ‘good’ children. Firstly, what sort of loving God would discriminate like that? That sounds more like punishment and judgment than unconditional love. Secondly, surely there is a universal system where we can make mistakes, learn from them, have the opportunity to correct them and then support those who are still making the same mistakes that we once did. I like that we get 2nd, 3rd, 4th…. shots at being divinely loving and living in harmony with each other.
We are definitely being offered every opportunity to learn to live in a very loving and harmonious way, not just with ourselves but with each other. And I love the concept there are no mistakes, simply the opportunity to learn and to begin to live in a way that is true. The way we live is no random event as it all has a purpose and consequences, and of course those consequences are from the choices we make and are 100% our responsibility.
The concept of Heaven and Hell is not in line with the truth, it’s a scaremongering tactic, used since the beginning of time to make sure people ‘tow the line’ and don’t venture towards the truth. And that’s the purpose of beliefs really, to keep people hooked into behaving in ways that are not true. No beliefs are true and so when we engage with them we are actively participating in the illusion, which is exactly what the creators of beliefs want.
The mere image of Hell is a major setup. People expect the worst and find themselves in the ‘attractive’ Astral Plane and have the feeling that they have avoided Hell while in truth this is where they are.
We can conveniently ignore karma or pretend that it does not happen, but all the while it is a part of the science of life and energy that we live in. And so once we choose to truly look and see, then we can allow ourselves to work with it and recieve the blessing and the healing on offer.
Karma is the ultimate form of responsibility that offers us growth. Without this we would not be called to accounts and nor would we recieve the blessings that abound. Karma is not bad nor a punishment, it is simply energy returning to the rightful instigator – based upon our movements.
Responsibility is very much needed for us human beings! Thank you Universal Medicine for bringing back the truth of karma, love and responsibility,
My feeling is that we would simply get a numb bum, so this scares the hell out of me as where is the purpose in sitting “around with angels playing harps.” Could it be that both options of heaven and hell as is presented in modern day religious teachings are so illusory that we will not look closely into what True Religion is all about? So it seems a set up to bring us all to the brink of illusion and keep us there for fear of not knowing which way to turn, then when we are convinced we have the ‘goods’ the other-side is laughing at our perceived miss-fortune. Then where the Truth lies is up to us all to find at our own speed and for most we start with at least being gentle on our path of return to True Religion.
‘ We can therefore use this life and our eventual dying as a time of great healing to leave behind all that is not true, and confirm the love that we are, in preparation for the next.’ Its a great service we can do for those who are in the dying process if we support them to complete whatever they feel is left undone, especially in relationships where many want to let go of old grievances and long held secrets.
Anonymous I laughed at your young interpretation of heaven and hell, because it reminded me of my own thoughts of heaven and hell when I was younger too. I always felt that there was a great deal more about life that I felt, as if I already had gone through the process and it wasn’t until I came across Serge Benhayon that it all started to fall into place, that I had indeed had many more lives than the one I am currently living, which builds the foundation for the next life to be lived.
The fact that we have indeed had many lives makes sense of much in our present life, ‘Now when I talk to someone, I know and understand I am not just seeing a reflection of their choices in this current life but a reflection of their choices of every life they have ever lived!’
Great blog Anonymous – hanging out on fluffy clouds and harps never made any sense to me. I love the aspects you have shared about re-incarnation and karma and the richness of awareness of the true Science of this as delivered by Serge Benhayon of Universal Medicine.
‘By understanding the true meaning of reincarnation we can see what an absolutely amazing opportunity it offers us to grow and to evolve.’
“These questions remained unanswered until, that is, I met Serge Benhayon.” Hearing and feeling the truth of reincarnation from presentations by Serge Benhayon is one of so many truths that just make sense.
What Serge Benhayon shares is always a truth that makes sense.
Reincarnation is a great leveller as it shows us what we have been up to and what we have and have not taken responsibility for. The fact that we cannot remember our past lives is telling in itself, especially about the lack of responsibility we have had towards our wayward choices.
“Could it be our karma to not consciously know about the fact of reincarnation simply because we have chosen to live irresponsibly and therefore have blocked seeing to what extent we are indeed energetically responsible?” (Teachings and Revelations, Serge Benhayon, page 356)’ Wow! What a revelation. We have created the situation where we can’t remember the fact of reincarnation and then deny that it exists. WE have based our ‘knowing’ on the lie we have created, not on reconnecting back to our source and truth.
