forty years on the temple mount

The Midrash HaNe'elam (Zohar parashath Hayyei Sarah) explains that forty years before a soul is born, it comes down to dwell on Har Tzion until the time of its birth.

I just realized that the neshama of my son, and any other children born this year, have been dwelling on Har Tzion since 1967 when Har HaBayit was captured and Jerusalem was reunited.

That's an amazing first experience as a Neshama dwelling on har habayit.. Of course I have no idea of the deeper meaning of the Zohar in question.

[ps. I still maintain that that was the year the moshiah was actually born, which must also have been a very amazing event for all those neshamoth.]
