The sparks of the soul, and reincarnation


"The soul is divided into many sparks, and some portion of these sparks come in each incarnation… and a person’s lifetime is based on the number of sparks. One who performs a mitzvah mends one spark. On a day when one does not perform a mitzvah, that day’s spark remains flawed."

(Rabbi Yosef Chaim of Baghdad (Ben Ish Chai), Rav Pealim 1 Sod Yesharim 3)

Have a great day,
