Elijah sat back for a moment and then leaned forward, squinting at me as if assessing my ability to understand what he was about to reveal.
“There is no such thing as soul’s destiny,” he said eventually. “I’ll explain to you later what happens to a soul once it achieves its purpose.”
He paused again. I looked at him without saying a word, and waited patiently for him to continue.
“A human being’s destiny is the outcome of the soul’s purpose. While a soul’s purpose is clearly known, a human being’s destiny is unknown, for it is determined by the path that the soul takes and that path could be influenced by other souls, such as soul mates. A human being’s destiny is also determined by the mind, which influences the soul and which depends on the life stage—infant, child, adult, elderly—the human is at.”
