Many Lives, Many Masters preaches the readers to rid themselves of their vices before their time is over. Burdening our soul with these vices would only create more baggage to carry to the next lifetime.
… you should check your vices before you come to this point. If you do not, you carry them over with you to another life. Only we can rid ourselves … of the bad habits that we accumulate when we are in a physical state.– Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
The inexcusable crime of taking somebody’s life impacts both the murderer and the victim in unfathomable ways. Based on the spiritual wisdom of the author, by ending a life before its natural designated time has arrived, the killer devoids the victim of the life lessons he/she was supposed to learn in this lifetime.
We have no right to abruptly halt peoples’ lives before they have lived out their karma. And we are doing it. We have no right. They will suffer greater retribution if we let them live.– Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
In this time and age, when everyone has set an acceptable age for every decision in life, Dr. Brian Weiss urges the readers to exercise patience. The universe does not move as per our eagerness ; On the contrary, it offers solutions, problems, events, and whatnot at just the right moment. So, instead of rushing through the life and waiting for a particular time, Many Lives, Many Masters insists on living a balanced life.
Patience and timing … everything comes when it must come. A life cannot be rushed, cannot be worked on a schedule as so many people want it to be. We must accept what comes to us at a given time, and not ask for more.– Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
How many times did you change your vision or goals in life? And how many of those times, the reason for your surrender was fear? Succumbing to fear means giving up on oneself and not tapping into our potential.

Dr. Brian Weiss has bring forth some extraordinary philosophies about enduring-beyond-our-wildest-imagination consequences of not paying one’s debts.
We have debts that must be paid. If we have not paid out these debts, then we must take them into another life … in order that they must be worked through.
With each life that you go through and you did not fulfill these debts, the next one will be harder. If you fulfill them, you will be given an easy life.– Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
The ominous warning of humans driving at their destruction at full speed should force the entire human race to mend their ways. Instead of indulging in an excess of anything and everything, we must pause and reflect while we still can.
Balance and harmony are neglected today, yet they are the foundations of wisdom. Everything is done to access.
In nature there is balance. Beasts destroy in small amounts. Ecological systems are not eliminated en masse. Plants are consumed and then grow.
Humankind has not learned about balance, let alone practiced it. It is guided by greed and ambition, steered by fear. In this way it will eventually destroy itself.– Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
Like headless chicken, we forever search for happiness with no clear direction in mind. No amount of money, promotion, or any other materialistic bliss produces a lasting joy. Many Lives, Many Masters enlightens the readers with the simplest way to achieve happiness.
Happiness is really rooted in simplicity. The tendency to excessiveness in thought and action diminishes happiness.– Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
In today’s world of extreme competition, none of us — or, at least a vast majority of us — thinks twice in adopting immoral means to succeed. Without giving a second thought, we demean, stab, and kick each other to eliminate competition and move forward in life. But, where does that all the double-crossing get us in the end? Apparently, at the same place!
If a part of humankind is eternal, and there is much evidence and history to think so, then why are we doing such bad things to ourselves? Why do we step on and over others for our personal gain’ when actually we’re flunking the lesson? We all seem to be going to the same place ultimately, albeit at different speeds. No one is greater than another.– Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
Sticking with the same set of people creates an illusion that we are in a protected circle of our own. Although this may be true, this behavior restricts our soul’s natural growth. According to Many Lives, Many Masters, mingling with a range of vibrations is more significant than we may realize.
I thought about how people tended to congregate in homogeneous groups, avoiding and often fearing outsiders. This was the root of prejudice and group hatreds. “We also must learn not to just go to those people whose vibrations are the same as ours.” To help these other people.– Many Lives, Many Masters by Brian L. Weiss, M.D.
