Ultimately, every part of the whole is the whole and is connected to every other part of the whole. But just as in an organism, some parts are closer than others. In all people there is a pull toward those souls with whom you already have a direct relationship.

That also happens for souls here on the first plane of creation. Read More
You may not see what you read in the news or what is happening in your life as being positive. It is true that there is also much unnecessary suffering and hardship, as there has long been. But from a larger view, it can be seen that human consciousness is emerging into a more effective and sensible state.
