“If everyone knew that they have lived countless times before and will live countless times again, how much more comforted would they feel! If they knew that there are spirits around them, when they are in a physical state; that after death, in a spiritual state, they will reunite with those spirits, including those of their dead loved ones, what a consolation it would be! If they knew that 'guardian angels' actually exist, how much safer would they feel! If they knew that acts of violence and injustice do not go unnoticed, but must be paid for with the same coin in other lives, how much less would be the desire for revenge! And if truly 'by knowledge we approach God', what use are material possessions and power, when they are an end in themselves and not a means for that approach? Greed and lust for power have no value.”
