Dear Ones,

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THEOSOPHY

The viewpoint toward capital punishment in the book “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, is unique, and I feel, well founded. This passage is pertinent …

Citation: “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, published 1927, Quest Book edition 1973, copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965 ... “Chapter XV: The After-Death Life: Special Cases,” page 137, first full paragraph (beginning “The victims …”) through the second paragraph (ending “…same community.”)

This passage expresses that people who are executed for their crimes find themselves suddenly torn from their physical bodies, and thrust into the astral realm. There, in their astral body (their emotional body) they experience such negative feelings as hatred, revenge, sexual passion, and so on.

These feelings that they project while in astral form influence Earth’s noosphere just as much as if these murderers and criminals were still in physical form … only more so, since the suddenness and brutality of capital punishment have invigorated their negative samskaras.

THE LAW OF MAGNETISM AND THE PREDATOR-PREY RELATIONSHIP

In general, I feel from personal experience of potential so-called ‘victimhood’, when criminals discover what they consider to be a potential victim or ‘pigeon’, then their own criminal thoughts will flow to the intended ‘pigeon’ … by way of the law of magnetism to the effect that opposites attract. This is what I have elsewhere termed the ‘predator-prey’ relationship.

Thus, while the criminal is in physical form, his mini-noosphere, and its potentially catastrophic effects, is in the main limited to himself (the region of his own head, especially) and the heads of his intended victims. I would term this a localized ‘mini-noospheric’ or -desire-thought (kama-manas) effect.

HOW A CRIMINAL IN ASTRAL FORM MAY INJURE LIVING PEOPLE AFTER HE HAS BEEN EXECUTED

The Astral Criminal Is Able to Will Himself Instantaneously to Be Near an Intended Victim Who Is Still in Physical Form. When the astral body of such a criminal is suddenly expelled from his physical body as a result of capital punishment, it is no longer limited by Earthly geography, as there is no geography on the astral plane. To be anywhere on Earth, the astral criminal simply imagines this, and finds his astral body there. And so, the mind and emotions of the astral criminal can, and inevitably will find itself immediately physically in front of the body of the intended victim.

The victim, being still in physical form, cannot escape. And so, the victim is ever at the mercy of the deceased criminal, until the criminal’s astral matter has purified to the extent that the astral form may be discarded, and the criminal may go on to spiritual schooling in the higher astral planes, under the tutelage of his guardian angels and other beings of grace and light.

Unfortunately, this process of purification may take far longer than the intended victim’s lifetime. And, one may presume, longer than that of a succession of victims in physical form, upon whom the astral criminal may, in accordance with his accumulated samskaras, set himself to prey.

By Increasing the Fear Samskaras, Astral Intrusions Can Make the Intended Victim Still in Physical Form an Easier ‘Mark’. What these astral intrusions do to the marked Earthly ‘victims’ is to aggravate the samskaric tendencies toward fear that they carry in their Soul fields. It is these samskaric tendencies that subject the intended victims to the attentions of human ‘predators’. And so, the effect of the attentions of the astral murderer is to make it more likely that such victims will be preyed upon by potential criminals still in Earthly form.

Astral Criminals Can Increase the Murderous Disposition of Criminals Still in Physical Form. There is another effect that astral criminals, especially criminals who have been executed (for reasons described above), can have upon those still in form. Such astral criminals may just as likely gravitate to people of murderous disposition who are still in physical form, and living in the astral criminals’ prior Earthly locales. This murderous astral intervention can cause their compatriots’ violent instincts to increase to the point of ‘acting out’ their behaviors in physical form. This is one of the likely causes of the phenomenon of many murders, enacted by different criminals, taking place in the same neighborhood.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
