Questions I received on memories of past lives and the resurrection of the dead:
Question: How much time does it take for a soul to reincarnate into a new body – days, months, or years?
My Answer: There is no time, and therefore it can happen at any moment.
Question: How do you explain it when a person has memories of a past life?
My Answer: These aren’t memories of a past life, but fantasies of this life.
Question: Why do we need cemeteries if everything stays in our memory, and especially since our soul reincarnates into a new body?
My Answer: When one of the soul’s 613 desires “dies,” it is “buried” – one stops using it. Then, as one continues the correction process, this desire is “resurrected from the dead” – in order to be corrected. This is how all the desires undergo death, burial, and resurrection, in order to reach the full correction.
Question: There are first and second restrictions, as well as the “resurrection of the dead.” When a person chooses the path of Kabbalah, starts studying the material and implementing it, then when does the “resurrection of the dead” take place?
My Answer: A person goes through these states one after the other: first the double concealment of spirituality, then single concealment, then single revelation, double revelation, resurrection of the dead, and the full correction.
