We are eternal because we are all manifestations of “God” (whatever you want to call it, The Divine, The Universe, Light, etc.), that is why we go through many lives and many deaths, emerging out of some unknown place and going toward another equally unknown place. you must get used to the fact that there are many things in magic which are not and never will be explained. When people think of reincarnation, they always come up against a very difficult question: if, in the begining, there were so few people on the face of earth, and now there are so many, where did all those new souls come from?
The answer is simple, in certain reincarnations, we divided into two, and those new souls are in turn transformed into two and so, within a few generations, we are scattered over a large part of earth. We form part of what the alchemists call the Anima mundi, the soul of the world. The truth is that if the anima mundi we’re merely to keep dividing, it would keep growing, but it would also become gradually weaker. That is why, as well as dividing into two, we also find oursleves. And that process of finding ourselves is called Love. In each life, we feel a mysterious obligation to find at least one of those soul mates. The greater love that seperated them feels pleased with the Love that brings them together again.
We are responsible for the whole earth because we do not know where they might be. Those soul mates we were from the beginning of time. If they are well, then we, too, will be happy. If they are not well, we will suffer, however unconciously, a portion of their pain. Above all, though, we are responsible for reencountering, at least once in every reincarnation, the soul mate who is sure to cross our path. Even if it is only for a matter of moments, because those moments bring with them a Love so intense that it justifies the rest of our days. We can also allow our soul mate to pass us by, without accepting him or her, or even noticing. then we will need another incarnation in order to find that soul mate.
