II. Before there Was Time. 11. Body and Soul

Just the Gist

Reincarnation is usually thought of as an event where a person lives and dies several times. But the notion of being reborn into a different identity is not the only form of reincarnation. In Kabbalah, a reincarnation is every time you make a step in spiritual growth. For example, if you correct yourself intensely, you can experience many lifetimes in a matter of minutes.

Some Q&A’s

All the souls on Earth have been here on previous occasions. It is like a dinner party where the guests keep going in and out. Each time they return, they learn something, leave, then bring it to the next party, which is held in a new house (person). All their experiences from past parties are applied to their present visit. Also, each time a soul visits, its desires strengthen and evolve because of its development in yesterday’s party (life)...
