"We have all lived past lives. All of us will live future ones. What we do in this life will influence our lives to come as we evolve toward immortality."
"Our lives are not the result of random actions and events. Lifetimes
are wisely and carefully scripted to enhance our learning and evolution. We choose our parents, who usually are souls with whom we have interacted in prior lifetimes. We learn as children, adolescents, and adults, evolving spiritually as our bodies
evolve physically. After our souls leave our bodies at the time of physical "death," our learning continues on higher planes, which are really higher levels of consciousness. We review the lives we have just left, learn our lessons, and plan for
our next life. Learning does not end with the death of the body." Messages From the Masters, p. 11.
