In Samyutta Nikaya, the Buddha taught that four types of\r\ncurrent human such as people living from the dark to the dark, ones in the dark\r\nto the light, ones in the light to the dark, ones in the light to the light.

\r\n\r\n

1. People who live from the dark to\r\nthe dark are poor families with miserable, bright defects and difficult life.\r\nThey do all evil deeds that lead to suffering in current life and the same in\r\nafterlife. It is the same as which people moved from this dark to next dark,\r\nfrom this blackest dye to the next one, from this red stains to the other ones.

\r\n\r\n

2. People who live from the dark to\r\nthe light are the poor families in miserable, bright defects and difficult\r\nlife, direct to good activities, cultivate their characteristics; therefore,\r\ntheir current life and next life will be in peace and happiness. It is the same\r\nas which people from the ground mounting the palanquin, from the palanquin up\r\nto the horseback, from the horseback reaching the elephant, and from the\r\nelephant top to the upstairs.

\r\n\r\n

3. People who live from the light to\r\nthe dark are the wealthy families in high social status, beautiful body birth,\r\ncomfortable facilities, have done such evil things that their afterlife\r\ncertainly falls in the beasts. It is the same as which people from the upstairs\r\ndown to the elephant, from the elephant to horseback, from the horseback to\r\npalanquin, from the palanquin to the ground, from the ground to the dark land.

\r\n\r\n

4. People who live from the light to\r\nthe light are wealthy families in rich status, beautiful body birth,\r\ncomfortable facilities do good things; cultivate a good heart; therefore, their\r\npresent life and next life will exist in peace and happiness. It is the same as\r\nwhich people from palanquin to other palanquin, from horseback to other\r\nhorseback, from the elephant to other elephant, from the upstairs to other\r\nupstairs. The Senior Ven. taught this content in Dharma talk.
