This is an amazing book that I have read only a few months after writing about the understanding I was given from the universal source of knowledge (God) that we do comeback not in physical form but in entity (spiritual) (soul) form. In fact, we choose the very lives we enter. The only thing of our parents are our physical outer selves. We are allowed to come back to experience that which we have not yet experienced in an effort to gain in our understanding and therfore our connection to our Creator. The end result being eternal spiritual maturity with God.
