What Grade Are You In?

Guest post from Reb Shlomo Shlita:

Souls are brought into this world on different grades. In total, there are 5 types of souls and the holy Tanya explains it as follows:

A soul - Either a Tzaddik gamur (complete) or incomplete Tzaddik. A souls are very close to being very-very fine;
B soul - Benoni (medium);
C soul - Between a rasha (wicked) and benoni;
D soul - Rasha with a few good aspects;
F soul - Has no value and no redemptive powers therefore it is lost and not even worth a tikun;

Most of this generation's Jews are either C or D souls. Thru tikun, soul on earth can travel between grades and if worthy, be born again into a higher grade. If someone was a C soul and thru actions merited, this soul can wind up acting like a B soul and will be reincarnated with a B soul in the next life. They will of course be less corporal and more soul since a B soul is more powerful and complete than a C soul and can exert more power over the body.

The body is ruled by the Nefesh Behami (animal soul, as defined in Tanya). Each grade can add another soul root. So a D soul would be a Nefesh. C = Nefesh + Ruach B = Nefesh + Ruach + Neshama. A = Nefesh + Ruach + Neshama + CHAYA depending on whether it’s a complete Tzaddik it then gets a Yechida. A person with an A soul depending on their rank in it could have anything from a spark of inspiration to ruach hakodesh, to something right below prophesy.

The main problem are lower souls acting like higher souls; C souls acting like A souls. This creates havoc as can be seen by the erev rav - D souls that are currently ruling Israel and "make up" Jewish law. Such is the case as with Israel's Supreme Court and Justice Barak’s anti-Torah decisions. The problem is exposed when lower souls reach for higher power that is either too much for them, like Korach. They do this by abusing A souls and feeding off their soul energy. In another words, you have a lot of parasites running around today in the guise of holy Jews. That’s why in the generation before the Moshiach, leaders behave as dogs.

Unfortunately, much has being downgraded, especially in the Orthodox and Haredi world. The teaching of children in Yeshivot is not what they particularly need to know, at their level. A Jewish soul is not being treated like an individual soul. In the yeshivot it is sort of like their soul is on a conveyer belt. They should all come out the same from the mold. This is a very wrong paradigm to work with. This can only lead a child to feel bitter and left out of the “grand scheme” of things. Every soul is unique and needs its own well-prepared nourishment of Torah.

The D soul Erev Rav is extremely dangerous, on the pretense of A souls. While they do this, they influence A souls to join their level and thus, it can be better understood why they have a momentary glimmer of success. After this "success" passes, we are left with pain and suffering. That’s why so many countless Jews from Orthodox world seem to be acting with such cruelty. This was brought out very eloquently by Rebbe Salanter ZS’L.

Most couples are mismatched grade souls. A D soul in marriage with an A soul is obvious, but the A soul is oblivious to this because they think that all of man’s intentions are good and merciful. Most higher souls are downgrade if and when influenced by the mismatched lower spouse soul. The outcome of such marriage can be devastating because the children can turn out wild and insensitive by having such polar opposite parents. The opposite is also true. A lower soul can be influenced by the higher soul spouse and the unity of the family is solid and concrete and the outcome is balanced.

Since the dispersion there is a sense of confusion about who is who. Bombs found in Rabbi's mailboxes and more abuses are put under the rug only for someone to keep their prestige...
May Hashem help us all from all FALSE leaders, Amen.

When Moshiach arrives, we will live in an ideal world where each Jew will know his tribe, and everything balanced.
