Will the souls forget spiritual things also like the worldly knowledge learnt?

[Smt. Priyanka asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, I am asking a follow-up question on behalf of Atri. He is thanking You for answering his question about souls having any memory of energetic incarnations once they leave this Earth (this question). He says he understands that souls forget worldly things like whom they were born to, what was their profession, etc. But, he is curious to know why souls forget spiritual things (like the memory of energetic incarnations). Also, he is asking if souls also forget other spiritual things like the knowledge they learnt or their association with the human incarnation of God. At Your divine lotus feet, Priyanka]

Swami replied:- After dropping the gross body only weak ideas disappear, which are routine. Even in the subtle state, the souls retain strong ideas, which form their constant character. All the routine things disappear. The strong thoughts are retained as permanent qualities but the details of incidents are forgotten so that the soul carries on the qualities only with it for the next birth. The essential concept of a repeated incident is called quality.
