Reincarnation and the Veil of Forgetting



   It has been put forward that in a Plan of our Logos,  the evolution of souls is accelerated using the so-called veil of forgetting. Coming into incarnation the soul has no memory of previous incarnations. Being aware of multiple lives would prove the existence of soul, and thereby eliminate the leap of faith which requires that there be no proof of Diety. As these lives are  veiled, the mind/body/spirit complex i.e. person, is transformed, by belief, derived from experience and thought, over multiple lifetimes, by karma, in which gains and losses through intention and desire occur, and by the choice of faith, which rewards the believer for actions which are not fruitful in the material sense. By dedication to purpose, and so to polarize towards that choice of service, to self or to others, the entity refines the metal of the soul.
If this veil of forgetting were not in place, the being might simply be unmoving, contented, knowing the ever present unity with Diety. Karmic debt from error would be avoided, who would make such a choice? No striving, since catalyst and circumstance would not be sought or encountered; no polarity, since the dark side would be obvious illusion. Importantly, faith would be weak, as the one who never knows blindness appreciates vision less, compared to him/her who lived in darkness and then finds light.
What is it about faith and freewill, that is so essential, that the whole of the material reality would be wrought to ensure it? Supposedly, in the less ornate arcana blueprint before this one, the pattern consisted of fewer stations, and was found to be less effective at accelerating the souls evolution. Much of the catalyst and experience of this illusion/reality is geared toward the transformative freewill choice of service. What would it be like without this veil, certainly daunting would be the consideration of how far the soul has to travel in order to evolve, were it aware of truth beyond our limited sight.
To me, this suggests the sublimity of the Plan of Diety, the scope and love for all creation, the light which is created out of love and freewill. Organized, Everpresent, All That Is, good, bad and indifferent, in Whom nothing is lost or unloved. The usual disclaimer applies here, in that Freemasonry rejects dogma, and invites skepticism, consider what is useful from these ideas and leave behind what doesn't resonate.

... TRANSMISSION, NOT REVELATION ...

More than one great scholar has stated that there never was a religious founder, whether Aryan, Semitic or Turanian, who had invented a new religion, or revealed a new truth. These founders were all transmitters, not original teachers. They were the authors of new forms and interpretations, while the truths upon which the latter were based were as old as mankind. Selecting one or more of those grand verities -- actualities visible only to the eye of the real Sage and Seer -- out of the many orally revealed to man in the beginning, preserved and perpetuated in the adyta of the temples through initiation, during the MYSTERIES and by personal transmission -- they revealed these truths to the masses. Thus every nation received in its turn some of the said truths, under the veil of its own local and special symbolism; which, as time went on, developed into a more or less philosophical cultus, a Pantheon in mythical disguise.
