The Soul Of A Soul

The soul is the self, the “I” that inhabits the body and acts through it. Without the soul, the body is like a light bulb without electricity, a computer without the software, a space suit with no astronaut inside. With the introduction of the soul, the body acquires life, sight and hearing, thought and speech, intelligence and emotions, will and desire, personality and identity. In truth, not just the human being, but also every created entity possesses a “soul.” Animals have souls, as do plants and even inanimate objects; every blade of grass has a soul, and every grain of sand. Not only life, but also existence requires a soul to sustain it–a “spark of Godliness” that perpetually imbues its object with being and significance. A soul is not just the engine of life; it also embodies the why of a thing’s existence, it’s meaning and purpose. It is a thing’s inner identity. Just like the ‘soul’ of a musical composition is the composer’s vision that energizes and gives life to the notes played in a musical composition where the actual notes are like the body expressing the vision and feeling of the soul within them. Each soul is the expression of God’s intent and vision in creating that particular being.”
