The truth is that before the individual acquires new powers he does not even remotely know or possess, he must acquire powers he mistakenly thinks he has, but really does not.
Before all, it is necessary to know the way which takes us to the intimate Self-realization of the Being.
It is urgent to comprehend the necessity to crystallize within us that which is called Soul. Jesus the Christ said:
“With patience shall you possess your Souls.”
Also, before all, it is good to understand what the Soul is. Truly I must tell you that the Soul is a group of laws, principles, virtues, powers, etc. People possess the Essence, the psychic material to produce the Soul, but they do not possess the Soul yet.

A weird and very hypothetical question:
Suppose teleportation existed. You stepped into a booth, it "read" your genetic structure, the molecules that made up your body, etc. It then sent that data to the "recieving point", where it was used to recreate you. The "original you" at the transmission point is then destroyed.
Are you the same person? Do you still have your soul?
What if the "original you" was not destroyed. There would be two of you (cloning in effect). Which one of you is YOU? Which one would your soul be a part of? What about the "other you"? would it be without a soul?
