there is also devilution in nature although we may NOT believe it because we don't PERCEIVE IT....
why wouldn't life forms get less evolved than they were before: We see the ancient cultures build some very intelligent designs that we couldn't built today if our life depended on it:
Hinduism believes in this devilution in that a soul that goes from human to rat just as it possibly goes from a rat as a human: That "desire" never moved up the ladder of life so down it falls
we think the fall was only in the garden
perhaps hell is when desires fall lower instead of rising higher in nature
I know christians don't believe this could happen but after I discern the TRUE desire intended by the highest force, I can see that any desire that wouldn't want to rise to this higher desire to LOVE or GIVE, has to fall to a lower desire
a murderer may decide it is better to be a carnivorous animal
a thief may decide it is better to steal life forms than to HELP them evolve or give to them
I can discern a lot of "life forms" on forums that have no use for a higher life
and they are setting up their next FORM in their desire
I don't believe we ever go below something we have truly attained, but a "belief" is a motivation to RISE, yet will we rise by mere belief?
if the devils believe and tremble, and enter pigs (legions devils entered the pigs), can all of us fall to a lower level, even vegetable?
I think Buddhism with its DENIAL of desire is in trying to still and become a lesser desire instead of RISING ABOVE THE ANIMAL DESIRE they may have evolved to
Christianity is more about INCREASING lust for money than overcoming it when all they talk about is PROSPERITY, wanting more and more "MAMMON" and showing this to be a sign that they are loved by God:
Christians that consider sacrificing their ANIMAL desires to reach a higher level, like Abel, i.e. (PUTTING THE KINGDOM FIRST) are truly ready to evolve
where are your desires taking you?
there are only two forces in nature
the desire to give
and the desire to receive
those above become ONE WITH THE DESIRE to GIVE
and those below continue to receive.....but at what level when you don't move forward?
