               I’m told on good authority that I
               Have lived before in many previous lives,
               And when I ask if there’s a reason why,
               They say it’s just what destiny contrives:

               All souls are destined to experience
               Recurrent challenges promoting growth,
               Since what we might become could be immense
               Should we transcend whatever makes us loath.

               By overcoming fears of many kinds,
               We prove ourselves more ready to advance
               Toward realizing destiny’s designs,
               The final aim of which is to enhance

                    Our holiness and make each growing soul
                    An image of perfection, clear and whole.
