“Greetings, dear ones! I am the Ascended Master Pallas Athene, and I would like to convey the following parable to you in order to explain in a metaphorical way why it is that you incarnated here on this planet Earth and what the alleged eternal wheel of reincarnation means.
Imagine a train with a number of carriages that are connected to each other. This train is a train of learning and development and is usually boarded through the rear carriage and left through the front carriage. Souls who want to advance in their development by means of a learning experience, that they can only make in this particular earthly learning train, throng around the rear entrance and wait to be admitted. They are aware that they are going to learn something in the course of their well-nigh endless journey through eternity that they can only learn and experience on this particular train.
In order to get from the rear carriage to the carriages in the middle of the train and in order to be able to leave the train through the front carriage one day, the passengers need to have certain experiences and pass a number of tests. It is within every soul’s own discretion to make progress at their own pace. Nobody presses them to do anything, because they are only answerable to themselves.
The carriages are furnished differently and depending on the respective level of development, have different overall conditions in order to offer an ideal learning environment for their passengers. They are also charged with different energy frequencies that correspond to the respective energy fields of the souls. Moreover, the ‘students’ are all accompanied by different teachers.
The souls at the first developmental stage, that is in the rearmost carriage, are confronted with other learning tasks than the ones in the middle and front area of the train. As soon as they have finished an incarnation, they leave the respective carriage and board the same carriage in their next incarnation in order to resume their journey of learning and development from there.
Of course, there are also souls which for various reasons already fulfil all the requirements to board a middle carriage of the train right from the outset. Some newcomers can even take a seat in the front carriages. You call them Indigo or Crystal children. They have skipped the rear ‘developmental carriages’, which is why they lack certain experiences that can only be made there. For this reason, they sometimes feel a little awkward and displaced in their compartment although they fulfil all the requirements for a lateral entry on the spiritual and emotional level.
Some souls spend a lot of time in the respective carriages; they take long breaks or put their development on hold due to various distractions and alternative occupations. Sometimes they even have to board the same carriage over and over again throughout a number of incarnations because they have not fulfilled the prescribed learning task yet and have not used their chance for development. But there is no one who assesses, judges or criticises them. Every soul is responsible for itself.
The journey has already taken quite some time, and the train has recently picked up speed. Owing to this acceleration, the various energy fields in the carriages have begun to change. Those who used to take their ease are now confronted with different conditions and either have to speed up their learning steps or leave the carriage after a short while in order to make a new attempt in their next incarnation.
Because many souls have already made their way to the middle and front carriages, the rear carriages become more and more empty. But the journey will take some more time, and many ‘students’ have become teachers themselves in the meantime. Others, conversely have already left the train through the front carriage in order to continue their journey to an entirely different part of the universe.”
