The concept of reincarnation of course is a threat to materialistic science, too, who claim that you ARE your body. That the brain generates everything...

And materialistic science is a threat to the *possible* illusion that you are eternal. The street runs both ways.

It's interesting that mainstream Christianity and materialistic science agree on that point - that there's no reincarnation.

But both systems deny the inner experience and enforce an outer authority. Neither of the systems care to prove anything, but use brute power.

Is this a sign of the end times?

Is it not so that some people will feel that something is terribly wrong today with religions and science. They will seek a spiritual path and prove truth to themselves by practicing mind-body cultivation.

That is how it happened to me at least. I wish more people can find the courage to go out and seek truth.

Very true. Religion/spirituality preaches Absolutism. Many currents preach that the absolute truth can be known by humans.

Enlightened guru's, self-realized souls, liberated godman, lightworkers.. they are the authorities of today's spirituality.

Nope. Just as Jesus and Saint Paul didn't lived in the endtimes (although they claimed they did), nor did the people who witnessed world war two were living in the endtimes, nor those in the Middle Ages, or those living under colonial rule etc. etc. etc. Many people like to interpret old scripture and fit it in their own time, to make sense of the randomness and destructive forces in nature.

I think this was all banned to keep it simple, and focused on the now. If reincarnation is accepted, then a lot of people would say, sin now, and repent later. Plus, the early Christians were of simple minds. They couldn't wrap their minds around it. (I'm into astrology, and I heard that the Pope had one of the biggest astrology libraries.) Then, organized religion can be controlling. (No offense to all the good, church-going Christians. Every organization has its flaws.)
