If at the age of 18 someone came to you and said "the Fruits from all your past lives, Good and Bad can be recieved in this life and then you will be free to be one with God after you have enjoyed or suffered them, or you can work through them like it's always been which might take 20, 50, or 100 more lives.
You also get to live to be 100.
How would you make your decision and why?
Thinking about how you've been in this one and hoping you were just the same or better in past lives? and hoping you had a lot of good Karma. Thinking at 18 if I keep my life good it might work out better in the long run.
What would you chose?

It is better to experience.......

I think in Spirituality nothing like short cut....Why to be worried of getting everything at once.It is better to experience and enjoy the Journey.....of refinement....Every experience has its own importance....there is nothing like Good or Bad....all is experience....What we call bad situation.....from those situation we learn more.

Intention of mind is more important.

It's all experiance

I agree it's all exoeriance but, would you want to or feel you are strong to deal with all of these good or bad experiances in one lifetime or over lots of lifetimes?
Do you think your faith in what you belive and your character would be spiritualy and mentally able to cope if you were to choose to deal with all your karma in one life?
I don't know if I could up to this point in my life and I'm 45 which is why I'm asking other spiritual seekers.My faith in God has always been strong but would it faulter or get stronger if I had all my past Karma(experiances) to deal with in one life. Everything that I would have to endure would be from all my own doing so ther would be no one to blame but myself.

Om shanti shanti.

Longing for God's love.....

Dear friend...if you ask me to deal with all karma in one life time....i am not at all interested to forcing myself
to attain anything....this again is binding oneself.

I am enjoying my journey towards refinement through knowledge or whatever practice i do....i am sure that this will make me free from all these Worldly Bondage one day.....may be in next life times.

Even remaining in this World doing all your worldly duties.....but not attached to them.....but at the same time not hating them.....you can set yourself free.
But for attaining such condition of mind you must have immense love for longing for GOD.

As intrested, only in "Salvation" other than anything.

If at the age of 18 someone came to you and said "the Fruits from all your past lives, Good and Bad can be recieved in this life and then you will be free to be one with God after you have enjoyed or suffered them, or you can work through them like it's always been which might take 20, 50, or 100 more lives.
You also get to live to be 100.
How would you make your decision and why?

As, intrested only in "Salvation", leaving everything of this world, What would be the more better and easy opportunity for one, other than this.

This is impossible.

I remembered one quote on this.

Quote: " How can a girl adjust at her husband's home, until she forgets to stay at her father's home."

In this Quote: Girl means "Soul", Husband's home means "Heaven", Father's home means "World".

Salvation

Hi Jasdir,
Isn't everything we do about our and other peoples salvation
how we act and react to each other. I thought every life we live is to perfect it so like Guru we can finally forget about the illusion(world)and go to the real(God, Heaven).

OM shanti shanti

"illusion"

If illusion is the thing which could be understandable, Than, Why shogon somebody has given to this thing the name; "Illusion" ?

Getting rid from "illusion" is not a so easy task as normally we all think.

As looking in the entire history, we can see the lifes of Spiritual teacher or Saints like; jesus, muhammed, buddha, guru-nanak etc.. were too hard and full of sacrifices.

Guru-nanak, has written very beautifully in one his.

Quotes: " Je tu prem khelon ko cho, sir dhar tali gali meri aou" -# GGS.

English: "If you want to play the game of LOVE than come in my street with your head on your hand "
