“If you have anything beyond a very, very strong Theosophical Inkling regarding the validity of reincarnation, translifetime Karma, etc., there is a chance that you may have actually slipped from the path leading to the Truth about these things and perhaps even fallen into the Common Ditch of Immobilizing Wishful Certainties.”—General Theosophy
Greetings and good wishes, M. Al Amati. Excellent question and excellent metaphorical teaching.
[Re: "Or you have reached the end of the path leading to the truth about these things."]
. . . "Or [possibly more usually] . . . you may have reached the end of your Path of Humility regarding what you can know in precise detail about other worlds and other lifetimes. . . ."
[Re: seeking and finding] For some, Theosophy is just an epistemology (“approach to knowledge”) which, after much meditation, study, introspection, extrospection, etc., will provide few if any specific certainties; rather, it may just “heighten one’s suspicions” regarding many otherwise unapproachable subjects. So while what a person possibly gets from all this “ultimately unconsummated” Theosophical seeking may not be complete understanding, it may be something even better—in the words of the Apostle Paul, "the peace [of mind] which [sur]passeth understanding.”
Or you have reached the end the path leading to the truth about these things. Why seek unless ye shall find?
When one arrives at the ocean, it is no longer necessary to speak of the tributaries.
