Why People Have No Memories of Their Past Lives

If we were born with all the memories of our past lives, what would become of our lives? For example, Mr. A would go to the country where he used to live and try to complete what he had left undone in his previous life. Or if he had someone that he wants to take revenge on, he would do it. In short, he could end up repeating the same kind of life as his previous life. He might commit a more serious sin. It is fortunate that human beings can forget what they want to. To remember everything would cause human minds to stop developing because they would be caught up in the past.

  • memory 記憶
  • complete 完成させる
  • previous 以前の
  • take revenge on A Aに復讐する
  • end up~ing 結局は〜する
  • be caught up 囚われる

Also, Mr. B would choose the same kind of job as that in his previous life, for he knows it so well that the job is easy to do. Then he would try to choose a marriage partner or friends whom he knew in his previous life because he knows them to be compatible for himself and easy to get along with. Mr.B, who led a safe life like this, will be attracted after death to a world whose level is lower than that of his previous life. Because he failed to develop his soul, he will be attracted to the previous world at best.

  • compatible 相性がよい
  • get along with A Aと付き合う
  • attract 惹きつける
  • fail to~ 〜することができない
  • at best よくても

It is not good for souls to waste the present limited life, with the same kind of life as the previous life being repeated. Conversely, going through a lot of pain in this life is not a waste at all because the pain makes a person a better one in the true sense. It can be said that souls are hoping for the pain at the deepest level. While you’re alive, you will find it difficult to know this truth, but after you die, you are sure to know the meaning of your life and how coherent everything was.

  • waste 無駄にする
  • conversely 逆に
  • pain 苦しみ
  • sense 意味
  • hope for A Aを望む
  • coherent 一貫した

After death, souls are attracted automatically to another world, such as the World of Gods, the World of Spirits, the World of Hell etc., according to the level of the soul. In each world, souls are put in the opposite circumstances to those in this world. The most serious problem in this world is that those who can afford to lead an easy, lazy life tend to forget gratitude to God. They take everything for granted so much that their soul cannot awaken and develop. They won’t even seek for the true faith. Most of them are likely to be atheists, which is unfortunate for souls.

  • automatically 自動的に
  • opposite 逆の
  • circumstances 状況
  • afford 余裕がある
  • tend to~ 〜する傾向がある
  • gratitude 感謝の気持ち
  • take A for granted Aを当たり前と思う
  • awaken 目覚める
  • seek for A  Aを探し求める
  • atheist 無神論者

So those who deserve grace of God, fortunately, can lose their wrong, easy and lazy life. And many of them are apt to get depressed and bog down, not knowing its meaning. On the other hand, those who are liked and possessed by wicked spirits, unfortunately, can enjoy a lazy and luxurious life until they die, which is really unfortunate and terrifying for souls because they are to be put in the opposite circumstances in the other world.

  • deserve 値する
  • grace of God 神の恩寵
  • get depressed 落ち込む
  • bog down 泥沼に入り込む
  • possess 憑依する
  • luxurious 贅沢な

The advantaged who can be grateful to God are noble. Their souls are virtuous. Further, those who can be grateful to God in an unfortunate situation are the noblest, which proves that they have travelled a long, long journey of soul in the right way. This world is really complicated and interesting.

  • the advantaged  恵まれた人
  • noble 高貴な
  • virtuous 徳がある
  • further さらに
  • greteful 感謝して
  • prove 証明する
  • complicated 複雑な
