The Riddle of Reincarnation : Why the soul splits into multiple lives

It's clear that G-d's people have the great burden through fulfillment of their souls purpose to bring or usher in Moshiach. This parallels Muslims jihad to bring in their Mahdi (Islamic messiah). If Moshiach will bring perfection and righteousness, why this task levied upon the Jewish soul? Reply

Reincarnation Thank you for your teachings, and your great and much appreciated humor.
This is helpful - I lost my son 3 years ago at 29 and you have given me comfort. I remember when he was at that age where he was learning to talk and he could form short sentences.
I had done something for him and he gave me a bear hug and a great wet kiss and he said "You are the best mom I have ever had!" and then he started off to play again. I was so taken by this that I called him back to me and I said 'What did you just say to me? and he said ' I said you are the best mom I have ever had'.
I just sat and thought for awhile about how he was telling me that he had been here before, and how amazing it was that he could remember his previous experiences.
He always had a favorite teddy bear and a stuffed racoon that he watched over. He was so kind he dressed as superman. He was a sociopolitical artist and not a big man physically he fought racism, stood up to bullies and the police never found out who shot him Reply
