I know that not all here subscribe to the idea of literal rebirth, and that is ok, but for those who do how can a very diligent practitioner who fails to realize liberation in this life be confident that in the next life that the practice will be continued? Is it theorized that the conditioning good dhamma practice will flow into the next life? I understand to "not be concerned with grasping for enlightenment", etc. so please save yourself the time (requested with respect and warm heartedness). I am just curious how this may be understood.
