It got me thinking, when people say "why would god let this happen to people" (like people living in Africa, North Korea") I started to think if reincarnation does exist and we go into our bodies, maybe we don’t even see the future before we go into our bodies. Maybe we just take a chance, and not know what will happen to us in this world. People say our soul knows the future before we go into this body. Maybe the risk/thrill in coming onto this earth is not to know the path lead before us but to develop the path when we live here.
Hopefully you guys know what i'm talking about, what do you think?

Please forgive the length this reply may get to. Also, what I am about to share will go against most philosophies and Belief-systems (Religions), including much of the new-age stuff you can read anywhere.
I would like to share the knowledge from over 35+ years exploring Awareness in all its avenues and dimensions, firstly with the guidance of a teacher when I was 17 and afterwards on my own, that have brought me to some fairly unique understandings of our nature as Souls, why we choose to incarnate, the nature of death, reincarnation, and what we humans misunderstand and call God.
Before incarnation, we do observe possibilities and probablities for Life Experiences. By doing so we can then choose what life may provide us with the experiences we would like to have. It is a similar process to how we humans develop an Itinerary for Vacations.
I must stress the point that nothing is set in stone, there really is no Destiny, although the life chosen does have paths that can and will lead to particular possibilities and probabilities based on the choices we make in that life.
To get a better mental picture of how it works I ask you to imagine holding a large piece of chicken wire in your hands, you then roll it up diagonally and tightly so that when you look into one end it appears as if thousands of lines cross each other all along the tube.
Now, that tube of wire will represent one life the soul has chosen for itself. You begin on the single strand of wire at one end..Birth.. and as you experience the "perceived timeline" you see that at each point where a line crosses another is exactly where you have chosen to have choices in your Itinerary.
Each choice takes a different path and so on to the end of that tube.. Death. You will notice also that because you have taken different choices leading to different paths, each one will bring You to the end at a different time. So Death is also not set in stone, you do not have a time set to die, you simply die when you reach the end via any of the paths chosen.
What life in the world is for:- It is so that a soul can experience what is on offer in this physical 3D reality in all its manifestations and variations.
Why? Because each Soul is an tiny portion of the Aware Universe we call God. The Universe is learning about itself through all the various portions of itself. It is like a baby growing up and learning about itself and what it is capable of.
The process of incarnating to earth is a very simple one. When a soul chooses to volunteer for having experience in this dense reality it sends a portion of itself into what is called The Akasha..... some people call it Hall of Records, Akashic Records, etc, which exists at the level of awareness Monroe describes as Focus 27. It is at this point that the soul reviews possibilities and probablities for life experiences.
Once it has made its choices it simply "reaches" into denser levels of awareness. To get a good mental picture of how this works you can again use your imagination... pretend that your body is the soul, it wants to experience what is on offer on the world of "computer keyboard". So you now imagine reaching out with one finger to your keyboard (the world), and that tiny part of the finger touching the keyboard is what I call The Contact Patch.. it is symbolic of your human body now being birthed into the world.
As you can see there is no mystery to it all, there is no Higher-Ups making you incarnate or telling you that you are a bad little soul and only deserve a horrific life as punishment for previous choices you made. That is only a Control Drama that has been used for millenia to insure that we humans do not ever Awaken to our real Nature as huge and powerful Souls.
To specific answers:- All souls see all experiences as being Valid. We do not make Value-based judegements on anything as we humans do with our limited perception and awareness. So to a Soul having a life of poverty in Africa is no better or worse than having a rich life in New York, for example.
It is not God who "allows" such things to happen, it is only souls choosing to have expeirences in this dense material world. The same thing applies for every world of experience that is available in this Universe.
I hope this may help to answer your original questions.
