    What is a human soul?

    Are we just a lump of matter?  Or is there something deeper to a human being?

    I believe a human being IS more than a lump of matter.  I believe a human soul is something humans develop over many many life times and the more lifetimes we live, the wiser we become.  I believe we live many lives and I am very proud to be a human being because we are special.  What makes us special is our soul.  Our soul is the very essence of who we are, it is us, on the very deepest level, a human soul is beautiful and pure and eager to learn. 
    Will the human soul ever stop living on and learning?  I sincerely hope not, I cherish life too much, and I love learning xxx smile

    i have sometimes wondered that myself. i dont think i know, and i wouldnt claim to know for sure. i do think in some way, it is a part of a innerstrength we have. its a way to figure out, or define who we are. i think people relate it with innerselves, and emotions.  im interested myself in trying to understand more about it.

    We are made of three parts. They are the mind, body and soul.

    Your mind is found in every cell of your body. Your brain just processes the information from every cell of your body. Your brain is not your mind. And you mind is not you.

    In addition what you mind knows, comes from everything you have been told or what you believe in. Your teachers, parents, religion and all the knowledge accumulated within your living memory in this life-time.

    You soul knows more than what you know from this life time.
    It knows everything about you and a great deal more about God than what you mind knows. Your soul is the only way you can feel or reach God. The soul is your essence and is more you than your mind or your body.

    Your soul is not located inside your body, but surrounds your entire body. It is strongest around your body and tapers off gradually with distance from you body. Part of it is everywhere in the universe. Part it becomes a part of other souls. In the spiritual world we connected through our souls and in a sense we are all one and also one with the spiritual fabric of God.

    Jesus and other masters have understood this.  That is why Jesus said to love God you have love your neighbor. When you love your neighbor you are also loving yourself. That is why many find joy in loving others. Part of you is in everyone else.

    Every time you sleep , the soul or the center of your soul leaves your body. The soul keeps the mind and body together. Without the soul the mind is lost and your body cannot function coherently. That is what happens during sleep.  So it actually leaves your body once every 24 hrs, In death it permanently leaves your body. In essence your soul is you and is a spirit powered by only one eternal energy source, God.

    Great question!  One we all struggle to answer for ourselves and only we can.  Yes, humans have, actually are, an eternal soul.  The simplest way of expressing it might be, the heart translates our understanding of essence or soul into the physical world.  So whenever we act from the heart, we are in concert with soul.

    The heart is connected to emotions.  Emotions offer a direct doorway to soul.  Connect with your heart, you connect with your soul.  It's a great adventure, enjoy!
