How can a simple novel explain in less than 4 pages so many unanswered questions. I'm still in the middle of reading it, so probably this is not the last quote: Paolo Coelho – Brida.
“And when people think of reincarnation, they always come u against a very difficult question: if, in the beginning, there were so few people on the face of the Earth, and now there are so many, where did all those new souls come from?”
Brida held her breath. She had asked herself this question many times.
“The answer is simple,” said Wicca, after pausing to savour the young woman’s eager silence. “In certain reincarnations, we divide into two. Our souls divide as do crystals and stars, cells and plants.”
“Our soul divides in two, and those parts know who it is?” asked Brida. She had many questions to ask, but she wanted to ask them one at a time, and this seemed the most important.
“We form part of what the alchemists call the Anima mundi, the Soul of the World,” said Wicca, without replying to the question. “The truth is that if the Anima mundi were merely to keep dividing, it would keep growing, but it would also become gradually weaker.
That is why, as well as diving into two, we also find ourselves. And that process of finding ourselves is called Love. Because when a soul divides, it always divides into a male part and a female part.
“That´s how the Book of Genesis explains it: the soul of Adam was split in two, and Eve was born out of him.”
Wicca stopped suddenly and sat looking at the (tarot) cards scattered on the table.
“There are many cards,” she said, “but they’re all part of the same deck. In order to understand their message, we need them all, all are equally impotant. So it is with souls. Human beings are all interlinked, like the cards on this deck.
“In each life, we feel a mysterious obligation to find at least one of those Soulmates. The Greater Love that separated them feels pleased with the Love that brings them together again.”
“But how will I know who my Soulmate is?” Brida felt that this was one of the most important questions she had ever asked in her life.( Read more...Collapse )
