Where do all the new souls come from?

    As far as we know there are more people on earth than at any time in history.  Are new souls being produced all the time?  If so why?

      wow what a question , has never crossed my mind.I don't think souls are produced but are the off springs of god  who is beyond time smile

        The reason I asked this question is because of a conversation I had with someone who believes in reincarnation.  Unless new souls were being made as an ongoing process there would not be enough souls to go around.  At least that was my reasoning during the conversation.

          The souls doesn't change the body does. Your soul is your inner energy a god particle , when this merges with all the souls you know yourself to be god the super soul your reality.

      Didn't you know? They all come from string theory and we're all being strung along in the infinite parallel universes. You and I are everywhere together. New universes and souls being produced all the time, which as everyone now knows is relative. It's all beyond my wee brain, but ah, there you are.

      I'm not a Christian, but here we go (this is a tenet of our faith):

      Some parts, or cells, of the Creator begin in a "spiritually uneducated" state and need the opportunity to grow, to learn, to realize over countless lifetimes of experience that Love is All.  These ignorant "seeds", so to speak, are packed tightly into bales (like cotton bales, or hay bales) and stored on the Causal Plane (a couple of major levels of existence higher than this Earth planet) until there's an opening--a population explosion, in other words.

      When such an opening occurs, workers on these inner planes open the bales and each "seed" is placed in the lower planes, given an initial "loading" of karma--sort of a kick start--to start Its ball (of experience) rolling.

      Thus, a "new" Soul is not exactly created, since It did exist in seed form from the beginning.  On the other hand, as an INEXPERIENCED Soul ("new Soul") Its beginning state of consciousness is so low (perhaps beginning as a rock or some such) that thinking of It as "newly created" isn't really that far off, either.

    "New" Souls are introduced to the rounds of karma and reincarnation whenever population levels allow for additional numbers on any given planet.  We (Souls) start out somewhat like those Chia Pet packets of seeds--not activated until the water hits, yet all the potential is there...just unaware.

    Then, as "bales" of new "seeds" about to sprout are activated, they are given little "backpacks" of karma to get the wheel rolling, as it were...and the game is on.

    Well that's where some of the 'new' souls came from. yikes 

    It is far harder for the souls of shoes to be reincarnated, as they tend to have been intentionally stuck on! lol

    Hmmm.  I wonder what the devil gives for a soul these days.  Has inflation made the price go up or are souls cheaper now because there are so many?

    I think souls, like people, themselves, start when a new person is born and continue to grow over the course of that person's lifetime. I think anyone who has ever had, truly treasured, and respected as an indiviual, a new baby is very likely to think this way. 

    I'm open the idea that souls may either "go off into soul land" after people die (or not); but either way, I can see how, as each soul spends some time living on Earth, could blend with or be impacted by all others - contributing to an ever-changing shift in "collective consciousness".

    Everyone seems to have their own personal ideas about one's soul.  Is this not the same as one's personal belief in religion?

    I believe that the intelligence of a spirit has always existed, they are just waiting to be given a body.

    I am not trying to sell this concept!!!
      I once wondered if God created the earth as some sort of six Flags or Disney world type of vacation spot for his angels, gettin bored doin whatever they do for eternity.
        After their vacation the body dies and they go back to their jobs and hopefully they have contributed something to humanity and can still remember which door they came in through.
       Like I said I'm not selling this idea just a thought.
       Who knows.

    Schopenhauer who apparently was a grumpy guy said the following: that in Western countries we had the idiotic idea that a human being could be a new being. Or a new soul as first post is saying.

    Festive elaborations aside. In Buddhist teachings there is no notion of new soul or being. Beings are constantly dying and being reborn in a beginningless process.

    By the way, quite on their own, in the sense: without supreme-being-creator.

      But all souls come from the super soul or the creator or god.

      The Buddhist philosophy is to break this cycle of birth and death and attain Moksha or Nirvana or oneness with god the supersoul and then you don't come back to this painful existence.

    Hi Mohit, Sorry to answer so belatedly.
    Ok, you say:

    "But all souls come from the super soul or the creator or god.

    The Buddhist philosophy is to break this cycle of birth and death and attain Moksha or Nirvana or oneness with god the supersoul and then you don't come back to this painful existence."

    My dear friend, you are a wonderful being with such religious experience! So please do not be offended with my slight correction to your sayings.
    In Buddhism there is no talk whatsoever of supersoul nor god the supersoul.
    But indeed, the basic Buddhist philosophy calls for breaking the beginningless cycle of death and rebirth, called Samsara, and the attainment of Nirvana. The followers of the great vehicle vow to attain full omniscient Buddhahood in order to help all migrating beings without exception out of Samsara.

      Hi I enjoy an intelligent debate and find no offense in your answer.Thank you for being so polite.
      The Buddha is a man and the state of being one with god.Buddhism is a branch of Hinduism and the Buddha attained the state of enlightenment or fusion with god the super soul.After that followers of Buddha referred to this state as the Buddha hood , the Buddha was all for gaining enlightenment or fusing with god the Light, the super soul.
      In Hinduism the soul is called Atma and the super soul or god is called Paramatma.

      Buddha hood  is a name used to denote this state of fusion with god (enlightenment, samadhi, satori)and one can use Holy Spirit, Great Spirit, Brahma, Shiva, Ma, super soul, Buddha hood etc

    Soul are born out of the infinite unreality ( darkness) and if it chooses to reason out it's consciousness it will come to a realisation of it's reality.

    When this happens they will stop living as hypocrites.

    This is what is referred to as being born again.

    EVERYTHING is infinite.  Infinity arises out of nothingness and in that place there is no actual "place", no time.  So basically souls just ARE - and as with everything, there are an infinity of them.  Blowing our minds constantly.  Tapping into the infinite pool of compassion and love (some people call God) is what really matters.
