Anastasia: A belief has survived to the present day that dead people must not be remembered in a bad way, and if you do think about them, then only in a good way. If a dead person comes in a dream, it is believed that “his or her soul has not calmed down”. How true are these beliefs?
Rigden: I would specify that if you think about the dead, you should do so only from the perspective of the Spiritual nature of the living, from the perspective of spiritual Love which is constructive for the living and not from the perspective of sorrow for the past. Besides, it is necessary to understand the processes that take place in this case. First of all, it is not the human Soul as such that is referred to in all these cases. As a rule, it was not only his relatives who knew nothing about it during his lifetime but even the person himself. What is meant here is exactly the person’s Personality which was well known by the community and which became a subpersonality after the death of the body. The Soul itself, when it is reincarnated, does not return to the place of its previous “imprisonment”. However, the subpersonality as an intelligent informational structure of the material world, even when it is “locked up” in a new body, can use the energies of the new body (mainly when a new Personality has not yet matured). When it gains power for a short period of time, it can visit, thanks to its projections, those places and those people to whom it was attached during its life. Subpersonality can also manifest its activity when living people start thinking about it (the dead person), giving it the power of their attention. What does this mean for a living person?
Unfortunately, I cannot disclose all the details here, as they say, to the general public, since it is known that “knowledge multiplies sorrow”. However, I will say the following for the general understanding of the gist of these processes. The point is that when someone starts recalling a dead person, the following happens. By putting their attention, non-localised fear, and asthenic emotions (grief, despondency, and depression) which arise as a result of thinking about the dead person into this process, the living person, speaking in terms of physics, imparts an additional “charge” to the subpersonality (transfers power). Due to that, the subpersonality becomes active. In other words, the process of recalling a dead person by the living is similar to an instantaneous transfer of “charge” (power) from one elementary particle to another regardless of time or space. The subpersonality remains in the new body but its projection immediately manifests itself when this “charge” is transferred; more specifically, it comes into contact with the Personality of the person who is thinking about it. The latter feels this connection, such an exchange of information, with the subpersonality of the dead person at the subconscious level. In fact, the living person feeds this contact with his or her own life energy. One should not expect anything good from it because such a subconscious exchange of information with the subpersonality only reinforces the surges of the Animal nature in the person.
As a result of such an information contact, the living person begins to feel melancholy (“heaviness”) and sorrow, gets caught in a loop of thoughts: “if he had been alive, this would not be happening to me” or “this would not have happened if she had been alive”, “he wouldn’t let them treat me like this”, etc. In reality, the Animal nature simply disguises the consumer desires of this person (for example, the desire to feel important) under the notion of lost Love, generating in him longing for the past, fear of impending death, and so on.
This brings sufferings both to the person who recalls, manifesting in him the dominant thoughts from the Animal nature and to the subpersonality whom he is recalling. On the one hand, such contact is a touch of life-giving power for the subpersonality. On the other hand, such a living “charge” gives it a clear awareness of its own inactive position and the state of hopelessness. And this only adds torments for the former Personality (which has become a subpersonality). Besides, such a provocation from the Animal nature additionally burdens not only the subpersonality itself but also the Personality of the person in whose energy structure it is located.
Perhaps, for ease of understanding what such contact with a living person means for the subpersonality, I will give a figurative example. Imagine a person walking in a burning hot desert. He is already doomed. He is almost on the verge of death. He is tormented by pain and raging thirst. And then a small drop of water falls on his lips from the sky. It does not quench his thirst but, on the one hand, it gives him an illusory hope of life or rather, memories of his bygone life; and on the other hand, it gives him a clear understanding of the fact that death is inevitable. This realisation further reinforces torments and sufferings of the doomed person.
Anastasia: Yes, truly, we do not know what we’re doing. So it means that, by recalling them, we actually bring suffering to our former relatives and we ourselves suffer from that as well. And what if we look at history? How historical public Personalities must be suffering, or rather, they are already subpersonalities, whom the living people recall for many centuries and even millennia. It turns out that such mass reminiscences aggravate their sufferings even more.
Rigden: If people, while dominated by the Animal nature, remember them and put their emotional power into such thoughts, then, of course, this significantly burdens both the subpersonalities and the ones who are thinking about them. But there they got what they deserved according to how they lived their lives here.
