Inspirational Note...
During a Satsang held in the divine presence in 2016 in Sunnyvale, USA, a devotee sought guidance on reincarnation.

Here is what Swami said:

How do computers perform so much? They remember so many names, so many addresses, so many numbers. I have something like that, called ‘chaitanya’, Absolute Consciousness, that remembers everything. It is like a super-super-computer which remembers everything about everyone. It knows whom to place next to whom, who should live with whom, how long they should live, when they should stop being with each other, what they should do when they are together, what should be the result of what they do; all these considerations are fed into the super-super-computer called Absolute Consciousness and it deals with all the individual souls. It places them together – or away from each other – for a certain period or for longer periods, based on what is good for that individual soul; what will help that soul to grow towards God. All this is done only with that single aim. So, whether you get the same parents, whether you get the same children, whether you get the same friends, totally depends on whether you have learned the lesson that you were supposed to learn in their company.

Once you have finished learning, you may go to the next class, where you will make new friends, meet new classmates, have new teachers and continue to learn and grow.

If you haven’t learned, you will stay in the same class, you will have the same friends, the same teacher and the same people around you. That is how evolution takes place.

The daily breakfast program at the local secondary school is serving approximately 50 students every day who are receiving a healthy, hot breakfast before the school day commences. The weekly food hampers are also continuing with 20, very grateful families, receiving fruits, vegetables and staple foods every Thursday.
The Health in Kind Team in Melbourne had their monthly Divine Mother and Child program for refugee families on the July 17, 2019. The doctors did a comprehensive presentation on food preparation and handling, with handouts on BPA-free bottles and ingredients to help with vegetable and fruit cleaning and preparation. The mothers were very interested in this topic. Four medical consultations were performed, one dental consultation and three mothers were treated by the mobile dental unit.
Volunteers from Heart of Love Foundation in collaboration with Sunshine Welfare Action Mission, Australia are continuing to conduct ‘Self Confidence and Life Skills’ Classes for children and youth once a week in a community centre called Minnawarra House. Owing to school holidays this month, there were only two classes held. This month, 30 children attended both classes and the themes for the lessons were teamwork and honesty.
