350. Does a spirit ever regret its choice when it is being connected to the infant body and it is too late to back out?

“If you are asking whether it complains of the life it has to suffer, and whether it wishes it were otherwise like the way many human beings do, then yes. If you ask whether it regrets its choice, then no. Remember that the spirit does not recall the choice it made. Once incarnated, a spirit cannot regret a choice that it is not conscious of having made. It may find the burden it assumed too heavy and turn to suicide if it is too much for it to bear.”
