Why do We Incarnate Into Poor Underpriviledged Lifetimes?

There are many reasons why souls decide to incarnate into poor underprivileged lifetimes. 

Understanding this concept is a big hangup for many when they begin to try and understand the theory of reincarnation.  It is often difficult for humans to understand why they would choose such a lifetime  when there are many ways to enjoy an easier less complicated existence on earth. 

They can’t fathom doing something like that to themselves, so they immediately put the burden on God, thereby releasing themselves from any responsibility of the current situation. 

By taking such a position, they immediately nullify any learning they would have had from the life lessons they came to learn, and by doing so it opens themselves up to the possibility of having to do it all over again. These lessons don’t go away until we understand  them fully, regardless of how many lifetimes it takes.

It’s better to learn the lesson the first time it is presented rather to create the need to relearn it many times over.  By learning  during the first incarnation, we are then free to go on to the next life course and continue our evolution. 

If we choose our destiny and the life we incarnate into , why would we choose a lifetime of hardship ? Why wouldn’t we just choose a lifetime of opulence and ease, living a lifestyle admired by everyone instead of one of extreme hardship, poverty, disease and struggle?

Often times, we choose such an existence because we have been unkind to those in such life situations in a previous life, and we have come back to rectify what we did and make amends to those we have offended. 

We all need to live such lives to be able to understand the whole of creation, we simply are unable to understand a certain life situation unless we live it, it just can’t be explained to us. 

Those lifetimes are the times we learn compassion and humility and are often deemed our most valuable lifetimes, the times when we learn and evolve the most. There are no wasted lifetimes, even though we may think so at the time. We can often learn  more by existing in the most humble stations of life than we sometimes learn being an important dignitary on the world scene. 


Often times, our first incarnation on earth will be in such a station in life, it is the souls way of gradually adapting to life on earth, and maybe even possibly getting some of the hard lessons out of the way early in their earthly travels. 

The reasons we all incarnate in these lifetimes are many and varied. The more we inquire and study our past, the more we can learn and control our future.
