Answer: From the point of view of Kabbalah, there is reincarnation, which is called Gilgulim, that is, circuits. These circuits, however, are not our lives, not the return to our world, that is, death and rebirth. They are the circuits in the spiritual space if we achieve it.
Our world has absolutely no circuits. The person who lives in his ordinary life just dies, that is, his animal life ends here. From this point of view, there is nothing in a person. There is a potential embryo of the soul that he did not realize, but it has nothing to do with the material body.
Question: But didn’t you say that reincarnation is a cycle of souls?
Answer: For this, you must attain the soul, and then you will participate in its circuits. But this does not depend on the life of the material body.
Question: Does that mean it can happen instantly, and then again after a few moments?
Answer: Not even instantly; it happens on a different time axis.
Question: What is reincarnation then? Is it an appearance of another desire?
Answer: Yes. Desires are constantly changing. My teacher wrote a few excellent articles on this subject. You can read them. The intention of the desire changes. The higher the intention, the more it is for bestowal, the higher the person. Changing one’s intention from small to large leads to such circuits.
