GNOSIS-MASTER SAMAEL AUN WEOR
“Death is the return to the beginning of his life with the possibility of repeating it all over again. As we are born again in this valley of tears, the past becomes the future according to the Law of Recurrence. The life in each one of us with all of its times is always the same from existence to existence through the innumerable centuries.
*The Law of Eternal Return of all things is always combined with the Law of Recurrence. The egos incessantly return to repeat the same dramas, scenes, and events, here and now. The past gets projected towars the future through the present.” *- Master Samael Aun Weor
