If So, What do you remember?
With each new existence a spirit becomes more intelligent, and better able to distinguish between good and evil. Where would be his freedom if he
remembered all his past? When a spirit reenters his primitive life (the spirit-life), his whole past unrolls itself before him.
He sees the faults which he has committed, and which are the cause of his suffering, and he also sees what would have prevented him from committing
them; he comprehends the justice of the situation which is assigned to him, and he then seeks out the new existence that may serve to repair the
mistakes of the one which has just passed away.
He demands new trials analogous to those in which he has failed, or which he considers likely to aid his advancement; and he demands of the spirits
who are his superiors to aid him in the new task he is about to undertake, for he knows that the spirit who will be appointed as his guide in that new
existence will endeavor to make him cure himself of his faults by giving him a sort of intuition of those he has committed in the past. This intuition
is the evil thought, the criminal desire, which often come to you, and which you instinctively resist, attributing your resistance to the principles
you have received from your parents, while it is due in reality to the voice of your conscience; and that voice is the reminiscence of your past,
warning you not to fall again into the faults you have already committed. He who, having entered upon a new existence, undergoes its trials with
fortitude, and resists its temptations to wrong-doing, rises in the hierarchy of spirits, and takes a higher place when he returns into the normal
If we have not an exact remembrance, during our corporeal life, of what we have been, and of the good or evil we have done, in our preceding
existences, we have the intuition of our past, of which we have a reminiscence in the instinctive tendencies that our conscience, which is the desire
we have conceived to avoid committing our past faults in the future, warns us to resist.
