The outcome of this searching experience is a conviction
of the importance of the theory of reincarnation. I need to know more
about the law of Karma; how it operates and how far it may be responsible
for the changes and chances of life on earth. Not that any such knowledge
will exonerate me from full responsibility; it will only spread it over
many more lives, since it seems that each succeeding life presents the
same kind of problems and offers fresh opportunities to solve them.
Why should one sorrow over mistakes and wasted opportunities when each
of us comes here (spirit) eventually where conditions are kind and congenial?
This diary of mine should supply an answer to that question. 'As a man
sows, so also shall he reap' is true through every change that the human
spirit can undergo. There can be no place left in an illimitable universe
where it does not hold good. Yet there is still a reason for stressing
the importance of the earth experience. It seems that in the cycle of
growth this is the formative stage when alone any real growth in essence
takes place. When the earth life is over and one comes here, the law
of affinity takes one into congenial conditions and the general alleviation
of circumstances removes all outer sources of conflict. There is no
more struggle for existence. Our work here is a kind of mopping-up operation.
We can, in fact we must, graduate from regions where our faults of temper
and our sense of guilt are tolerated to those where we have to clear
ourselves of these stains of earth. But although we may clear ourselves
and in the ascent of the planes gradually purify our being until we
are again essential spirit, still no actual growth in this spirit will
have been made here. What we bring from earth remains our all, so our
fate is bound up with our earth experiences; only in the struggle and
turmoil of life there are we able to make any real difference to our
spiritual stature. So, although this in-between period is a wonderful
interlude, the real work has to be done on earth.

This is a very interesting book and picks up from when T.E. Lawrence
(Lawrence of Arabia) was killed in a motor cycle accident.
