Knowledge - acquired and borrowed

You are forever searching for new things to learn, new things to see and hear. That's not a bad thing, but you should also make a habit of spending a few moments each day connecting to the divine world, for what you acquire by doing so you can take with you wherever you go, even into the other world; nothing can take it away from you. Everything you find in books - all the knowledge you can acquire - will never really be yours; when you leave this earth, you will have to leave it behind, and when you come back you will have to start learning again. When we reincarnate, we each bring back only what we have truly achieved and experienced in our other lives. Everything else will have been taken away from us, because it didn't belong to us: we had taken it from others. Of course, for the short time we are on earth, thanks to those 'loans', we take advantage of what the earth has to offer: compliments, ovations, the plaudits of people who are not very enlightened. But when we leave, there we are, poor and naked again, and we return to earth poor and naked.
