You are giving very little information as to what you mean?
from the simple explanation you give I think you are on about the amount of lives
one life being only this life
two lives being earth and heaven or hell
and the three lives being the rebirth or reincarnation model
but still not sure what you re referencing to unless it is one of the levels of enlightenment stream entry being no more than 7 lives etc

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
