Earth - should be considered only as our place of work

If so many people cling desperately to this life, it’s because they don’t know that their life does not end with what we call death. In fact, they will commit any crime to survive. This is how they contract karmic debts they will have to pay in a future incarnation. The disciples of an initiatic school, however, have a different philosophy. Sometimes they think, ‘What a pain life on earth is – we’re restricted, ridiculed, assaulted, tormented and crushed.’ But they also know they are there to work and make up for their past mistakes. So they agree to it, believing that when they have finished this work they will be able to live freely in space and in the light. That is what people on a spiritual path know to be true, and that is why they are convinced there is something they have to do on earth, even if they know that the true life is elsewhere. Until they have settled everything, until they have finished the work heaven gave them, nothing else matters to them. They don’t ask themselves whether they would rather live or die; they only want to finish their work. But as soon as it is done, how happy they are to leave, because they know the earth is not worth clinging on to.
