If you dwell in any one particular negativity it results in rebirth in the most appropritate mode. Pride leads to rebirth as a god, jealousy as a demi-god, attachment as a human being, stupidy as an animal, greed as a hungry ghost, hatred as a hell denizen.
For example, to be born as a god would be a person born to a life of luxury and ease, maybe a rich Californian.
The human state, is balanced without too much suffering and too much comfort, conducive to spiritual growth.
An excess of suffering prevents people from giving any thought to anything else, since their minds are overwhelmed with pain.
An excess of comfort and happiness dulls the mind and gives no motivation for change. If all else fails the deceased is instructed to seek rebirth as a human.
A lifetime of habitual clinging to the outer objects of the senses under the influences of desire and attachment, fear, loathing, disgust, and confusion does not prepare people for spiritual growth, let alone for the reality of death.
