178. Can spirits live in a world that is inferior to the one in which they have already lived?

“Yes, when fulfilling a mission to advance progress. In this case, they gladly accept the trials of such an existence, because these provide them with a means to advance.”

a) Can this also occur as a means of atonement? Can God send defiant spirits to lower worlds?

“Spirits may remain stationary, but they never regress. Their atonement is not advancing, and by having to restart their squandered lives under the conditions best suited to their nature.”

b) Who is forced to restart the same existence?

“Anyone who fails to fulfill a mission or endure a trial.”
