Sonnet VI. The Rise of the Young Souls
That I'm a young soul is attested fact.
Shakespearian sonnets make it amply clear.
The misbehaving old souls love to jeer
at curious young souls as they interact.
Then they would claim all virtues while they sneer:
wit, understanding, wisdom and the like.
It's like an old rogue bullying a tyke
for drinking milk or wearing diaper.
It's time for younger souls to counterstrike
and put those laggards in their proper place.
They are like school repeaters stealing praise
from those of proper age whom they dislike.
The old souls are tail-enders, a disgrace
to batch mates who've moved on to higher Space.

Concerning Old Souls and Young Souls
This sonnet tries to open the discussion on the almost unnoticed and unrecognized problematic relationship between old souls and young souls. The problem is actually broad, acute, complicated and far-reaching. It's hardly discussed nor rectified because old souls are in positions of power everywhere and would prefer to retain their huge advantages in the current system and culture of our planet.
Take the case of scholarship programs, for example. Most of them were intended for "poor but deserving students". I have no objection to the "poor" part. But the "deserving" part is biased and unfair. "Deserving" is a code word for "intelligent" which of course favors old souls (who had longer time in the universe to build up their intelligence) and unfavorable to young souls. It's like a race where the stronger and faster contestants are given all sorts of support and assistance while the weaker and slower ones are deprived of the same.
We may truthfully state that after the rebel angels (very old souls) were expelled from the celestial planes and began interacting with infant humanity (very young souls), the dynamics of life on earth changed drastically and dramatically. Naturally, being old souls, the rebel angels easily dominated humans as depicted in the Book of Genesis and other ancient writings.
Then there were the Watchers or Nephilim during the time of Enoch. They were actually angels tasked by the celestial government to watch over mankind. But they had sexual intercourse with the daughters of men and taught humans the art of war. So they were barred from returning to Heaven. Interestingly, according to some esoteric source, one Nephilim incarnated and became a prime minister of Great Britain and another Nephilim also incarnated and became a prime minister of India.
The bodhisattvas, which are well-known among Buddhists, comprise an entirely different class of beings. These are advanced souls who are qualified to ascend to celestial planes but have decided to linger for a while in the planes of Matter in order to render service to sentient beings evolving here. Unlike the laggards and rebel angels, bodhisattvas are benign beings and exert beneficent influence to life on Earth.
There are also angels loyal to God who have volunteered to go down to lower planes -- either through the portal of birth or in their angelic bodies -- so that they may be able to help counteract the evil activities of the rebel angels.
Finally, some of you may be aware that after the people of Earth invited some Maldekians to reincarnate on planet Earth, everything started to go awry. As a result, this planet eventually became a sort of open city where lifestreams of varying soul ages from various star systems and from various planes of existence could come in and join the fray.
And that is why it is more fun in planet Earth, sort of.
