Where did we come from? We come from out of the past, even as today comes out of yesterday. This life is the result of the past life, before this life. We come from out of the things we have done before, out of the past labours unfinished. Although we have labored, our work is not complete, if it were we should not be here, we should be somewhere higher.

Every birth is conditioned by a past good or bad kamma (action) which predominates at the moment of death. Our forms are only the outward manifestation of the invisible kammic force, and this force carries with it all our characteristics which usually lie latent, but may rise to the surface at unexpected moments. The death of a person is merely the temporary end of a temporary phenomenon, the present from perishing and another taking its place in accordance with the thought that was most powerful at the death moment.

Línjì Yìxuán (臨済義玄; Wade-Giles: Lin-chi I-hsüan; Japanese: Rinzai Gigen) (?–866) was the founder of the Linji school of Chán Buddhism during Tang Dynasty China. Linji was trained by the Chan master Huangbo Xiyun (Huángbò Xīyùn; 黃蘗希運; Huang-Po Hsi-Yun), but enlightened by the reclusive monk Dàyú (大愚). He suddenly realized the emptiness of thoughts, words, and philosophical explanations, and that truth was to be found within the self, in everyday existence. Linji’s teachings encouraged people to have faith that their natural spontaneous mind is the true Buddha-Mind, and to enter simply and wholeheartedly into every activity. When Linji’s students told him they were searching for deliverance from this world, he would ask them, “If you are delivered from this world, where else is there to go?”
