What are the key pillars of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings?

Our entire perspective on life changes when we build our higher bodies and subtle mechanisms and consciously understand and appreciate the complexities of life on its many levels. This is the bridging process often referred to as having “continuity of consciousness” that is the heart of the Wisdom Teachings.

There are three basic pillars of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings: First, there is the Law of Karma or the law of cause and effect. This means that whatever you sow you will reap; whatever you do in your life, you have to answer to the consequences of your actions or inactions. This applies to individuals as well as to groups and nations.

The next pillar is the concept of Reincarnation. Reincarnation is the philosophy that explains the process of spiritual evolution. The spirit or soul energy that exists in each human being incarnates, lives and learns its lessons, and passes out of incarnation. The human soul incarnates over and over, into human form based on what he or she did and accomplish in the previous lifetime. Contrary to some belief systems, the human soul never incarnates into a kingdom below the human. The bodies of the incarnated soul take as its building blocks the exact spiritual DNA recordings that were created in each life. Nature does not cheat or forget; it is always built on causes or conditions that are put in place. This means that whatever we do, in any lifetime, we will reap its results in one of our lifetimes. There is no escape. How can there be? The law works regardless of whether or not we believe in it.

A third pillar of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings is the role that Higher Principles and Laws play in life. These are laws of behavior, communication, and core values and standards. For example, the Golden Rule of doing unto others what we wish for others to do unto us is formulated in all philosophies. Righteousness, goodness, and freedom are core values and principles that humanity has striven toward. These are not just pink and fuzzy ideas or hallucinations of romantic minds! Every human being wants to address the rights that he or she needs to live a decent life. The formulations of these rights are derived from Higher Principles and Laws. These principles condition our relationships in our personal, professional, and community life. If we want right human relations, starting with our family members and on to the larger body of humanity, then we must individually and as aggregates of individuals, adhere to the laws and principles on which life operates. We also understand that these core values and principles are continuously unfolding and humanity is defining and re-framing them according to the needs and challenges of the times. For example, what was defined as freedom 100 years ago is not the same now. The same holds true with values of decency, righteousness, human rights, dignity and so on.
