Our life is a cycle according to the Hinduism. After lots of civilizations and incarnations we’re now standing again at a civilization where we had been in the past. We’re again on earth in a form we had ever been in, and again experiencing a big part of our life we had experienced in the past.
Man is it’s own history. The returning pelgrim appears on earth like a cosmic being to be or realize that what’s hidden in his deepest being, present in seed that will come to full growth in course of time and under the right circumstances. -- G. the Purucker (Mens en Evolutie (Original title: Man in Evolution))
It’s indeed impossibe to prove the theory of the inadequate past, but nevertheless there’s a positive message that can be extracted from this theory. Consider your life as that new chance to which you’ve longed, and try to make it the best you can. You ever had one or another thought that if you could go back in time you would make it a better past. Consider that you’ve got that longed chance now, how will you polish your life and make it out and out?
