Question: Reincarnation is the growth of a soul. If the soul doesn’t have time to realize itself in the current incarnation, does it have to return to Earth in order to study again in the same class and then move to the next one? Is there reincarnation according to the wisdom of Kabbalah, and if yes, how does it happen?
Answer: In each of us born into this world there is a seed of a soul called a point in the heart. The heart is a person’s desire, inside of which there is often a completely unconscious, almost insensible urge for a person to reach his root.
The urge to reach one’s root pushes a person forward. Some people feel it more strongly and some less and there are those who don’t feel it at all, but everyone has a point in the heart.
A person who feels it begins to look for meaning in life because he really needs to reach the root from which this point descended like a star and settled in him. He has to go there, there is his home.
The point in the heart motivates a person by building the right and very precise yearning in him: he has to discover what he is living for during his lifetime. These people reach the wisdom of Kabbalah and fulfill this yearning of returning to their home, to their sources, and to their root.
This is what the wisdom of Kabbalah tells us about. Our mission in this life is to reach our root. If a person begins to work on himself and carries out this mission, he ends the cycle of his reincarnation.
If he stops along the way, he has to come back and to continue the correction in the next life until he reaches his root. This may take more than one lifetime.
A person in whom this desire is still silent simply returns to this world in order to accumulate the necessary amount of material sufferings that lead him to the question about the meaning of life, “Why am I suffering?” Then he begins to search.
Thus, we are either about to fulfill the point in the heart, in the middle of the way, or already in the process of fulfilling it.
