Thanks for that.Firstly lets think of this clearly, in those days the vocabulary in all languages was simpler. Trouble with todays writers they are all concentrating more on their creative writing skills than getting the true message across. Not only that but translations from one language to the next and books retranslated as time goes on to produce more works. So lets put all that aside and keep it simple shall we.
Bits and pieces - covers a big grey area. One can see our various lives as "bits and pieces" which will eventually make up the whole. So the current self is transient but our old soul is NOT transient. Our old soul is immortal.
is quite the opposite to...
Your sentence contradicts itself and if you have read it somewhere, its must be a bad translation.
The Old Soul cannot be seen with the naked eye, it can be felt... because its your inner self, your intuition, your guiding Light... its what gives you a sense of purpose. We cannot see it but we know its there. Its our inner child. From one life to the other, we dont recall our memories from before. But there is more than enough proof of people being regressed to previous lives. The Old Soul is connected to Infinite Source -- where it all began.
Come from what? Our Old Soul came first then it chooses to lives in living bodies over many incarnations. The old soul doesnt arise from anything, our current little self is used by our old soul to progress on many levels, by way of intellectual growth, spiritual growth , emotional growth , physical growth. And I would add intuitive growth too.
You see Buddhism was derived from other older faiths and they added their own bent into their teachings. Its not rare at all to die and be reborn, it will happen to all of us forever. Reincarnation never ceases, its like energy. Energy never dies, it just changes form. I know some Buddhists seem to think we only get reincarnated until we have learned whatever we are supposed to learn and then we are never reincarnated anymore. This is simply NOT true, energy never dies and nor does our Old Soul... it will continue to be reborn into the lives we choose. I dont believe we come back as insects or animals, in fact we dont come back as anything except another human being to my knowledge.
You would have to reword you first sentence, I dont understand it.
The second sentence is true, "we are ignorant of true reality" because true reality is our Old Soul.. in which lies all truth.
I dont understand this section: "precipitates them to unfortunate rebirths" because we are all reborn, sometimes into less fortunate conditions than others.
