Soul status

QUESTION: Masters it is believed that when the soul sheds the physical body it forgives anyone and everyone who has hurt the soul during its earthly journey. So then where does the concept of soul mate and soul group fit in? Why would there be souls who are dearer than others once in soul form? They are all the same aren’t they? ~Sree, UAE

ANSWER: All souls are composed of energy broken off from Source and are identical in essence. Souls who came into existence as individuals at approximately the same time are called soul mates. Their ability to “sense” those close to themselves is based on their sharing the time of “creation.” There is a familiarity of the energy, and it is easily recognized when met at another time, such as on Earth. It does not make them appear “dearer” since there is no grading, rating, or judging while in unconditional love; each is simply able to recognize the energy signature.

As individual souls experience their own human lifetimes, they gather wisdom that may not have been gathered by even their closest soul friends. For instance, say you are a triplet. One brother joins the same sports team as you. Your other brother is an intellectual and avoids all physical activity. You have things to share with your teammate that your other brother will never understand, but you are all still identical physically.

Once souls leave the duality of Earth, which is the only place they may experience negativity, they are in unconditional love where none of the lessons of humanity – such as hatred, forgiveness, or revenge – exists. All souls are still composed of the identical essence, but they carry the unique experiences each has lived.

Coming from the same soul group may make it more likely for two souls to share the same experiences by choice. But a soul may opt to make a contract with someone from a different group who wishes to have the same life lessons in the same lifetime. Freedom of choice determines everything for each soul.
