The Kindness of Reincarnation
The Megale Amukos writes that reincarnation is
a Chessed of Hashem, that any Jew can fix what he
messed up. This is alluded to by the fact that the word גלגול has the same Gematria as חסד (72).
Due to this, one is reincarnated up to three times as
is hinted to in הן כל אלה יפעל אל פעמים שלוש עם
גבר; Hashem does all
these things with man two or three times, so that one can’t mess up too
much. This only applies if one doesn’t rectify with his Torah, Mitzvos and
Maasim Tovim when he returns in a Gilgul. However, if one that is reincarnated
does the will of Hashem, then Hashem gives him an additional Chessed and he is
able to be reincarnated up to 1,000 times as the Zohar writes on ועושה
חסד לאלפים...; who shows
kindness for thousands to those who love Him and observe His commandments.
In the year 1936, R’ Dovid Shechter, the father of R’
Yaakov Meir Shechter, was davening at the Kosel when he suddenly heard someone
crying bitterly. This man was to be making a wedding in the near future for his
daughter but had no money for it. R’ Dovid invited him to his house where he
gave the man the funds- which was originally intended for the wedding of his
own son that was to be held in a half year- needed for the wedding. Later in
the day when R’ Dovid was davening Mincha by R’ Shlomke Zvhiller, the Tzadik
asked R’ Dovid you are shining today, what did you do to merit this? After R’
Dovid reluctantly related what happened, R’ Shlomke said because of what you
did, you rectified your Neshama in this Gilgul as well as previous Gilgulim.
