When we die, we become disembodied spirits.
And the only thing we self-reflect in this form
is the encoding our souls have retained from their past lives.
We don’t remember our bodies or personalities.
Not our life events, people we knew,
or even the places and times in which we lived.
It’s not until our souls are re-embodied
that we may form faint and fleeting recollections
of our earlier embodied forms.
That’s the way it’s supposed to be
so that it’s possible for our souls to evolve
toward their own Divine perfection.
