In the depth of the soul there is the quality that it has brought with it; on the surface is the quality that the ancestors have given it. If that innate quality is greater, then it may also manifest on the surface, covering that quality that the parents and ancestors have given it. Another way of a soul’s inheriting qualities that do not belong to its parents and ancestors is the reflection that a soul has brought with it before it has come to this physical plane. There is also the inheritance from the minds of those who have left this earth. When a soul on its way to the earth meets a soul coming from this world, it receives the impressions of that soul.
