What is the soul? The soul is the sum total of all you are. It is the past, present, and future – as you know it. It is the Now! The soul resides in your heart, not in your head. Your soul feels, breathes, and lives while in your earthly body as a part of you. You are body, mind, and soul. The spiritual part of you is the soul.
It is each soul’s purpose – very like the sperm trying to find the egg – to strive in this incarnation for growth, freedom from the earth plane, and the continuing round of existence it endures. The soul will lead you to teachers, books, and all sorts of ways of freeing yourself from the earth. Often you do not listen. You do not listen because you fear change – fear looking at yourself – which is a very important part of moving forward. You see you have a Self. It is attached to the earth plane, does not want to see you ascend, and does not want you to grow. The Self will do everything in its power to stop the soul from growing. You – the body and mind – are usually unaware of this.
That is the soul. Look to your heart, not your head. It is not of logic, but of the heart. It feels it is the true part of you, the part you will return with to spiritual realms. Find the soul and you will have found the most wonderful part of you. Logic will tie you up in knots with explanation.
