Grof, Dr Stanislav - A belief about birth
Type of spiritual experience
A belief, but an interesting one as it seems, superficially, in opposition to the astrological belief, unless he means just the higher spirit. In effect conception produces the Higher Spirit, birth produces the Personality.
'Karmic past' is simply the sum of all perceptions. You aren't allocated a task you haven't been trained to perform
A description of the experience
LSD Doorway to the Numinous – Professor Stanislav Grof
The assignment of an individual spiritual entity to a particular physical body occurs during conception according to its karmic past – this choice bypasses the laws of heredity and genetics.
