The human being who has not yet completed his cycle of earthly reincarnations immediately goes to the world of the unconscious, after dying:
If you now go back to the earth soon, when you leave here, then you already immediately dissolve for the world of that unconscious; that is called the world of the unconscious, the world for the birth, you become mother or you become father.
Instantly when you are released from the body you disappear and you become hazy.
Your mother and your father who have passed over, for example, who already possess a sphere of existence, they do not need to come and fetch you ...

As long as not all the karma has dissolved, people live in the ‘law for the birth’ and after the earthy life people go to the world of the unconscious in order to be born again:
But if you therefore go back to the earth, then your father does not need to, your love, your friends do not need to, your brothers and your sisters do not need to come, you dissolve immediately, because you are in the law for the birth.
That all happens of its own accord, no one can change anything about it.
You still have to go back, you still have to do with people somewhere here in this world, but you are therefore still not ready, you still have something to make amends for, you must be mother or father.

During a contact evening, a member of the audience asks master Zelanus the following question:
(Lady in the hall): ‘How could the prehistoric being end his earthly cycle, if he did nothing else but kill on the earth?’
He did not only kill.
You all killed.

The article ‘karma’ explains that many people on earth reincarnate due to committing a murder:
When you soon come ‘beyond the coffin’ and you continue ...
It is possible that you will return to the earth, you know that, then you have to make amends for murder or manslaughter.
You perhaps destroyed children in previous lives, we flung that life back in God’s face.

This returning for dissolving karma applies both in this age and for the prehistoric being:
And we know, now we must give all those bodies, we must give those souls a new body, because we send those lives too soon to the next stage.
You go back to the earth or you continue to live on the other side.
And now you ask: how did those people get there?
They murdered.
They had to make amends for all those murders, because there was someone on earth who attracted them to that earth again.
Can you feel this?
That soul which was born again, it demanded from you that you give birth to a new body as mother.
If you are a father – I explained those laws to you – then you must return to motherhood, in order to bring about, to materialize that giving birth.

Spiritual growing

Master Alcar took Jozef Rulof (André) back to the time that the first prehistoric beings experienced their last lives on earth:
I’ll return to those first human beings who have reached this negotiable planet, for these beings were to die.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939
At that moment, an astral world had already originated:
The planet earth was ready, but what happened in the astral world?
There was a world for inner life, too, and that world became the image of the earth, but in a spiritual condition.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939
The human being on earth was not conscious of that astral world:
‘Then I’ll skip centuries.
Yet there was activity, something happened in the astral world, unknown to anybody.
In the astral world another world came into being.
That world was created out of man.
I’ll explain that process to you and we get to know the hell.
I explained that man proceeded in his material condition on earth and awakened and this awakening meant hatred, passion and animalization.
Every sin they committed, every mistake man made by taking the life of others, all those horrors made the astral world condense and that became hell.
In that world a second world developed through hatred, passion and violence, and this world became the world of existence for those who had completed their cycle on earth.
l’ll pass several thousands of centuries and show you what happened during that period.
Look and observe, André.’
‘My God, what is that, Alcar?’
‘The hell, André; hell in life after death.
Man is creating hell and the astral world has condensed during those centuries.’
André saw another world in this darkness.
How is it possible, he thought.
‘Could this not be avoided, Alcar?’
‘No, my boy.’
‘Do people already live here?’
‘No, not yet, they will arrive presently when man has reached the highest material degree.’
My God, how terrible, André thought.
‘You say that the astral world, the hell, is waiting for man?’
‘Yes, André; it could not be avoided.
Alas, darkness is waiting.
This would become hell in life after death and man built it himself.
For man has passed to a condition of consciousness, inner life has acquired it.
Man created hell, God did not want it.
God gave man everything, His own life, but it is man who created it.
As I said, conscious evil developed on earth and man created it.
Do you feel all this, André?’
‘If I understand you correctly, Alcar, I feel both worlds.
The first astral world is the natural world, if I may put it that way, but an unconscious one, the other world is a conscious one.’
‘Indeed; that’s right.
For man has to go further and higher and although this is hell, this world is at a higher stage than the world of the unconscious.
One day the end on earth will come.
Inner life became conscious; it acquired an animal-like consciousness and attunes to something, which would be the spiritual world of existence after death on earth.
We have come to know this dark sphere as the hell, a world of consciousness
Both astral worlds were one, but the one invisible for the other.
l’ll skip some centuries again, and you will see how the hell condensed.’
André observed that next stage.
How is it possible, he thought.
He saw a mountainous landscape.
This was hell, the shadow of reality.
This was the conscious spiritual world, but hell in life after death; darkness on the side beyond.
‘No people live here yet, Alcar?’
‘No, not yet; not until thousands of years later.’
The Origin of the Universe, 1939
The prehistoric beings had reached a pre-animal-like grade of feeling then:
When people on earth had advanced that far, hell in life after death was still empty.
Now that degree was attained, millions of human beings had completed their cycle on earth and were about to die.
But their inner life was in a pre-animal-like condition.
The Origin of the Universe, 1939
These prehistoric beings had transcended the world of the unconscious:
Then their end on earth came and they entered another world.
You do feel, André, that these were the first people of the hell, people who could no longer return to the earth, because they had completed their material cycle and were attracted by that other world.
In this case the dark spheres, the astral world, or hell in life after death.
These people were free from the world of the unconscious and entered a world of existence.
