"Life is a spiral. You are continually learning by experience, some of it very unhappy and unpleasant in order to drive the lesson home better. You can only get through a little bit in each life so you have to keep coming back, but each time rising up the scale of evolution a little higher. If you were a Tuttiman, it is quite on the cards that I was a maiden. On the other hand, I could have been a Tuttiman and you a maiden, because the Ego generally reincarnates alternately male and female in order to get maximum experience.""People who are really close nearly always reincarnate together as close friends, husband and wife, brother and sister, father, daughter, mother and son, that sort of relationship. They will stay closely together for ever until eternity.
