By "Reincarnation" we mean the repeated incarnation, or embodiment in flesh, of the soul or immaterial part of man's nature. The term "Metempsychosis" is frequently employed in the same sense, the definition of the latter term being: "The passage of the soul, as an immortal essence, at the death of the body, into another living body." The term "Transmigration of Souls" is sometimes employed, the term being used in the sense of "passing from one body into another." But the term "Transmigration" is often used in connection with the belief of certain undeveloped races who held that the soul of men sometimes passed into the bodies of the lower animals, as a punishment for their sins committed during the human life. But this belief is held in disrepute by the adherents of Reincarnation or Metempsychosis, and has no connection with their philosophy or beliefs, the ideas having sprung from an entirely different source, and having nothing in common. There are many forms of belief—many degrees of doctrine—regarding Reincarnation, as we shall see as we proceed, but there is a fundamental and basic principle underlying all of the various shades of opinion, and divisions of the schools. This fundamental belief may be expressed as the doctrine that there is in man an immaterial Something (called the soul, spirit, inner self, or many other names) which does not perish at the death or disintegration of the body, but which persists as an entity, and after a shorter or longer interval of rest reincarnates, or is re-born, into a new body—that of an unborn infant—from whence it proceeds to live a new life in the body, more or less unconscious of its past existences, but containing within itself the "essence" or results of its past lives, which experiences go to make up its new "character," or "personality." It is usually held that the rebirth is governed by the law of attraction, under one name or another, and which law operates in accordance with strict justice, in the direction of attracting the reincarnating soul to a body, and conditions, in accordance with the tendencies of the past life, the parents also attracting to them a soul bound to them by some ties in the past, the law being universal, uniform, and equitable to all concerned in the matter. This is a general statement of the doctrine as it is generally held by the most intelligent of its adherents. E. D. Walker, a well-known English writer on the subject, gives the following beautiful idea of the general teachings: "Reincarnation teaches that the soul enters this life, not as a fresh creation, but after a long course of previous existences on this earth and elsewhere, in which it acquired its present inhering peculiarities, and that it is on the way to future transformations which the soul is now shaping. It claims that infancy brings to earth, not a blank scroll for the beginning of an earthly record, nor a mere cohesion of atomic forces into a brief personality, soon to dissolve again into the elements, but that it is inscribed with ancestral histories, some like the present scene, most of them unlike it and stretching back into the remotest past. These inscriptions are generally undecipherable, save as revealed in their moulding influence upon the new career; but like the invisible photographic images made by the sun of all it sees, when they are properly developed in the laboratory of consciousness they will be distinctly displayed. The current phase of life will also be stored away in the secret vaults of memory, for its unconscious effects upon the ensuing lives. All the qualities we now possess, in body, mind and soul, result from our use of ancient opportunities. We are indeed 'the heir of all the ages,' and are alone responsible for our inheritances. For these conditions accrue from distant causes engendered by our older selves, and the future flows by the divine law of cause and effect from the gathered momentum of our past impetuses. There is no favoritism in the universe, but all have the same everlasting facilities for growth. Those who are now elevated in worldly station may be sunk in humble surroundings in the future. Only the inner traits of the soul are permanent companions. The wealthy sluggard may be the beggar of the next life; and the industrious worker of the present is sowing the seeds of future greatness. Suffering bravely endured now will produce a treasure of patience and fortitude in another life; hardships will give rise to strength; self-denial must develop the will; tastes cultivated in this existence will somehow bear fruit in coming ones; and acquired energies will assert themselves whenever they can by the Law of Parsimony upon which the principles of physics are based. Vice versa, the unconscious habits, the uncontrollable impulses, the peculiar tendencies, the favorite pursuits, and the soul-stirring friendships of the present descend from far-reaching previous activities."

..". The doctrine of Reincarnation played a very important part in their philosophy. The prevailing idea was that the worthy souls pass on to a state of bliss, without rebirth, while the less worthy pass the waters of the river of Lethe, quaffing of its waters of forgetfulness, and thus having the recollection of their earth-life, and of the period of punishment that they had undergone by reason of the same, obliterated and cleansed from their memories, when they pass on to re-birth."

A concept of karma (along with samsara and moksha) may originate in the shramana tradition of which Buddhism and Jainism are continuations. This tradition influenced the Brahmanic religion in the early Vedantic (Upanishadic) movement of the 1st millennium BC. This worldview was adopted from this religious culture by Brahmin orthodoxy, and Brahmins wrote the earliest recorded scriptures containing these ideas in the early Upanishads. Until recently, the scholarly consensus was that reincarnation is absent from the earliest strata of Brahminical literature. However, a new translation of two stanzas of the Rig Veda indicate that the Brahmins may have had the idea, common among small-scale societies around the world, that an individual cycles back and forth between the earth and a heavenly realm of ancestors.

"Gedankenkraft im Geschäfts- und Alltagsleben ist ein kleiner Ratgeber, der sich mit dem geistigen Potenzial eines jeden Menschen befasst und diesem durch praktische Übungen zur Steigerung verhelfen will." Aus dem Inhalt: Derjenige, welcher im täglichen Leben eine praktische Konzentrierung übt, schließt hierbei alle äußeren störenden Einflüsse aus und gibt seine beste Gedankenkraft dem vor ihm liegenden Tagewerke, und aus diesem Grunde ist seine Arbeit besser, als diejenige eines anderen, der Konzentrierung versäumt; der betreffende Arbeiter mag nun Tagelöhner, Baumeister, Schreiber, Kaufmann, Poet, Maler oder Bankier sein. Jeder Mensch, der etwas „geworden ist“, hat mehr oder weniger die Kunst der Konzentrierung entwickelt. Er ist sich dessen vielleicht nicht bewusst, das ist einerlei; aber er hat es getan. Und man kann noch weiter gehen und sagen: „Der Mensch, der die Kunst der Konzentrierung erweitert, wird an sein Ziel gelangen“. Versuch's und sei überzeugt! Übrigens können Sie dies selbst beobachten, das Resultat kommt von selbst. Wenn Sie Ihren Geist auf einen Gegenstand konzentrieren und den Gedanken daran festhalten, sind Sie geradezu gezwungen, Ihr bestes Werk auszuführen, und wenn Sie Ihr Bestes tun, wird der Lohn nicht ausbleiben; vorausgesetzt, Sie besitzen den Menschenverstand, der mit Ihnen zur Welt kam, und sind nicht etwa in den Glauben versetzt worden, Sie seien nur ein Wurm im Staube, oder ein menschlicher Waschlappen. Wenn Sie durch ein scheinbares Misslingen in Ihrem Berufe entmutigt werden, brauchen Sie nur das Konzentrieren lernen und üben. Spucken Sie in Ihre Hände, nehmen Sie einen neuen Anlauf, ein klein wenig energischer, und dann los; arbeiten Sie mit allen Ihren Kräften! Wenn Sie nur kräftig genug am Seil ziehen, am anderen Ende desselben werden Sie sicherlich etwas Gutes finden. Vergeuden Sie die Zeit nicht mit Klagen über „Unterdrückung durch das Kapital“ oder dergleichen. Wenn Sie ein Mann der Konzentrierung werden, fällt Ihnen das Kapital von selbst zu, nämlich Ihre Dienste werden in Anspruch genommen oder Ihre Waren gekauft. Inhalt: 1. Begrüßung. 2. Der Charakter der Macht. 3. Wie Gedankenkraft dem Menschen helfen kann. 4. Unmittelbare psychische Beeinflussung. 5. Ein wenig weltliche Weisheit 6. Die Gewalt der Augen. 7. Der magnetische Blick. 8. Die Willenskraft. 9. Direkte Volation. 10. Telepathische Volation. 11. Die Anziehungskraft des Gedankens. 12. Charakter durch geistige Kontrolle erziehen. 13. Die Kunst der Konzentrierung. 14. Die Ausführung der Konzentrierung. 15. Der Abschied. Erstveröffentlichung: Psychologischer Verlag, Van Tuyl Daniels Berlin, 1920 Originalausgabe: „Thought-force in business and everyday life” Umfang: ca. 125 Buchseiten, 15 Kapitel
