Is it true that there is no repentance in the grave?

The popular statement: ‘No repentance in the grave’ has to be better well understood; otherwise a well meant admonition could evoke wrong appreciation of the order of spiritual happenings in Creation.

The grave should not be seen as the final destination of a departed human soul. The soul normally detaches itself from the physical body after an earthly interment. Having detached itself it remains alive, but must then be drawn to points of further experiencing in accordance with the spiritual substance of its earth-life. This happens automatically following the activities of the Laws of Creation.

In accordance with the Spiritual Laws of Reciprocity, which we fondly call the Law of Sowing and Reaping; and the sister Law of Attraction of Homogenous Species, which we note as ‘like attracts like’, every departed soul is automatically drawn to a centre of its homogenous kind. In that gathering of souls of similar nature, a mutual reaping of past deeds go on, for a shorter or longer duration according to the souls concerned.

In other words, all our past deeds, including thoughts and words, help to form the spiritual path each soul must follow after discarding the physical body. In the new environment and experiencing, the soul is offered the opportunity to taste of the consequences. This has both an educative and redemptive value.

In going through the experiences called forth by its activities while on earth, a soul now in the great Beyond may mature in learning; or may become denser and go further down if it continues in frivolous trifling. If the soul gains in these new experiences, then, in a way, it could be said that it has achieved repentance in the Beyond.

Often it is the recognitions and realisations of what was done wrong during their earth life that compel souls to put forward the prayerful volition to be permitted another earthly incarnation; which then becomes an opportunity to make amends.

If the request is granted through the Grace of the Almighty God, such a repentant soul then follows the process of reincarnation; and gets born as a new baby. This new baby, however, would come to the new earth life with all the former spiritual baggages it accumulated in its previous earth life or earth lives, and must then experience them in order to be freed from them. This then is true repentance which occurred through experiences in the Beyond.

It is however necessary to point out that each present moment of a current earth life offers the best chance for a spiritual rebirth in conscious observance of the Will of God in Creation. That should commence immediately, for progress is quicker on earth.
