Both Agreements and DisagreementsUntil a spirit has moved into its total knowingness of oneness with the Creator it will always continue life within spiritual family and groups.

AgreeWhen people in trance speak of being part of a soul cluster group, they are talking about a small primary unit of entities who have direct and frequent contact, such as we would see in a human family. Peer members have a sensitivity to each other which is far beyond our conception on Earth...Members of the same cluster group are closely united for all eternity. These tightly-knit clusters are often composed of like-minded souls with common objectives which they continually work out with each other. Usually they choose lives together as relatives and close friends during their incarnations on Earth.

AgreeOnce our souls advance past Level II into the intermediate ranges of development, group cluster activity is considerably reduced. This does not mean we return to the kind of isolation we saw with the novice soul. Souls evolving into the middle development levels have less association with primary groups because they have acquired the maturity and experience for operating more independently. These souls are also reducing the number of their incarnations.

AgreeWith the attaining of level III there is a change in soul behavior. ?These souls have now begun to expand their vistas away from their primary groups...These assemblages of more specialized souls are rather loosely knit at first. ?I have defined them as independent study groups...Souls who are testing the waters may leave these specialty groups while other promising candidates can be added. ?This practice is in opposition to the formation of long-term primary soul groups...In these early stages, while souls are being weaned from their original groups, they still retain their regular guides and attend primary group functions. ?Independent study has a greater emphasis on self-direction by the soul in their tasks, which becomes even more pronounced as they develop in level ?IV and V proficiency.

Destiny of Souls, Michael Newton

AgreeNow in this time of choosing [between life state] all of these matters are considered, and suitable preparations made, but the planning itself is all a part of experience and of development. The in-between existence, therefore, is every bit as important as the period that is chosen. You learn to plan your existence, in other words. You also make friends and acquaintances in these rest periods whom you meet again and again - and only, perhaps, during in-between existences. With them you may discuss your experience during reincarnational cycles. These are like old friends.

AgreeTransitions vary so greatly in their circumstances that we find it to be of first rate advantage if we meet, fairly frequently, all those who are connected with our own group, to discuss our individual experiences and to exchange and compare notes. It increases our knowledge prodigiously, and provides us with invaluable information upon which we can base any future action of our own when similar circumstances present themselves. Such meetings take place over a wide area of these realms?it is not an original and exclusive idea of our own! Our meeting-place varies as we each take it in turn to act as host or chairman to our companions, just as so many small society meetings are conducted upon earth.

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
