        • Errant Spirits

226. Is it accurate to say that all spirits who are not incarnate are errant?

“Yes, in terms of those who are going to reincarnate. Pure spirits have reached perfection and are no longer errant since: their state is definitive.”

Depending on their inherent qualities, spirits belong to different orders or pass through varying degrees of advancement successively as they become purified. Regarding their state as spirits, they may be incarnated, or tied to a material body; errant or disengaged from a material body and awaiting a new incarnation for further improvement; or, pure spirits who are perfect and have no further need for incarnation.
