talent in working order, it must be facilitated. If we don?t use it in one life and let our opportunities slip by, then in the next life we are impaired by physical inability though still have the yearning for the talent(Cooper 88). * “Vice or Virtue” The voice of conscience is really the memory of past decisions concerning right and wrong. A crude person has little conscience because his past experience has been so little. Criminal parents can not stop virtue from being revealed in a child neither good parents keep bad from sneaking into their children(Cooper 89). * Genius Genius is not caused by heredity or the influence of parents either. Genius results when a soul of wide experience along a certain line- math, music, painting, etc.- is brought into incarnation in a physical body of extreme sensitiveness(Cooper 89-90). * Masculine Women/ Feminine Men Masculine women and feminine men basically occurs when a soul has lived as a male or female for many lives and is suddenly switched into the opposite sex(Cooper 90-91). * Unaccountable Fears “Half-memories” from a previous life when we suffered from a terrifying event such as drowning(fear of water) or being burned(fear of fire)(Cooper 91). * Sudden Friendships When people touch or see each other for the first time yet they intuitively have a strong bond that neither disappears nor improves, have a mutual trust, are quick to sympathize and are readily understanding, and includes loving sacrifice, are the results of many life times of friendship. Two people who have loved one another in the past cannot be kept apart. They are brought together over the centuries and the relationship becomes more and more beautiful(Cooper 91-92). * The Feeling of Familiarity of Having Known a Place Before All too often , there is someone who receives an eerie feeling that they are strangely at home in a foreign city and while walking, can instinctively know what is around the next corner(Cooper 92). * The Detailed Memory of Past Lives There have been many cases where a person is placed under hypnotic regression and has been able to go back to past lives and explain about how they lived in that life and who they were. This procedure has been known to be very consistent and truthful accounts. There is one minor problem with reincarnation. Human souls are said to be running out. In the twenty-first century, there will be more people alive than have ever lived before. When that time comes, souls from the animal kingdom will have to be upgraded such as we were thousands of years ago. But for the moment, “new pupils” are not entering the “World-School” (Cooper 56). In conclusion, “our greatest joy should be in learning how to make others healthier, happier, and wiser here on earth, and that our greatest privilege is to take part in hastening the spiritual unfolding of our incarnated brothers”(Cooper 52). Reincarnation, by explaining the otherwise unexplainable, is the key to our existence and the truth to life. Cerminara, Gina. Many Mansions. New York: William Morrow & Company, INC, 1975.
