Let's get things straight pertaining to world events. Cyclic concept is not a fact, it is a belief. Spiral concept is a fact.
What do you mean spiral concept is a fact?
Yes, I would feel mad at the rapist and will bring him to legal justice. But I will hold on to my belief that the original nature of a soul is pure, and that doesn't exclude the rapist. He chose to be bad this lifetime, but the question is, could he have chosen to be good? The answer is yes. The possibility exists.
If you say no because he had chosen the same act last cycle, then how can we get out from the chicken and egg idea. If we go deeper, we realize that he chose that rape act because that is part of his soul. Then how could the soul be considered pure?
As you say the original nature of the soul is pure. That doesn't mean it will always remain pure. the potential rapist in his pure original state would not rape somebody only later on in his degraded form would this happen.
And then please don't have the slightest impression that my Sister was raped because "(s)he (in the previous birth) raped someone else. And who committed the first rape, Brahma?
No, actually I never said that, maybe some BK said it to you, but I never did.
I feel we have to open up our minds with other good possibilities. The only way to have a vision of equality of souls is to accept the eternal spiral nature of time.
But if someone doesn't consider it to be true why should they accept it.
Doesn't bother me at all. I am out of religious way of thinking, including the BK concept of time.
Yes, you should believe what you feel is right, but that doesn't stop the possiblilty of the cyclic nature of time being true, however many people disbelieve it.
