Both Agreements and DisagreementsAll spirits have the same abilities, the same opportunities, and it is with their free will that they choose to restrict themselves both on earth and in heaven. There has not been but several individuals in the entire lifetime of earth who has ever lived to the capabilities of their mindpower. Intellect and mindpower are actually two different things. Everybody has mindpower but intellect is, we would say, more an earth experience. But mindpower, which is really the ability to be in soul, is in everyone.

Both Agreements and DisagreementsA human's level of spirituality is not correlated with their intelligence nor their ability to see auras or other spiritual manifestations.

Both Agreements and DisagreementsEven though the new incarnated human is generally coming from many past lives and even though the reincarnated human is coming through parents which will have traits and like DNA connections, still the new reincarnate is its own person and has the ability to create its own personality in its new life.

Agree...to say that all past life memory is actually genetic in origin, carried in our DNA cells from remote ancestors, is an argument that, for me, fails in several ways...Unconscious memories of past life trauma are capable of carrying a severely damaged physical imprint of that long-dead body into our new body, but this is not the result of DNA... The former bodies we had in prior lives are almost never genetically related to our current family...So-called genetic memory is actually soul memory emanating from the unconscious mind.

AgreeThe soul and brain of a new baby appear to begin their association as two separate and distinct entities and become one mind....Although the physical organism of the body will die, the soul who occupied that body never forgets the host which allowed them to experience Earth in a particular time and place.

AgreeEach inner self, adopting a new body, imposes upon it and upon its entire genetic makeup, memory of the past physical forms in which it has been involved. Now the present characteristics usually overshadow the past ones. They are dominant, but the other characteristics are latent and present, built into the pattern. The physical pattern of the present body, therefore, is a genetic memory of the self's past physical forms, and of their strengths and weaknesses.

Men fear death, as if unquestionably the greatest evil, and yet no man knows that it may not be the greatest good.
