PostSubject: What is the soul?   Mon Dec 08, 2008 8:32 am

What do you think the soul is?

Why do we have the soul?

What can we use the soul for?

Does the soul have a colour, or change colour according to what type of person we are?
E.g. Bad people have black souls, good have white.

Why do we need 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.



Everything Has a Soul

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 G-dliness" 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, it's raison d'ĂȘtre. 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--the actual notes are
like the body expressing the vision and feeling of the soul within
them. Each soul is the expression of G-d's intent and vision in creating that particular being.



Five Levels

But it is the human soul that is both the most complex and the most
lofty of souls. Our sages have said: "She is called by five names: Nefesh (soul), Ruach (spirit), Neshamah (breath), Chayah (life) and Yechidah[/url] The Chassidic masters explain that the soul's five "names" actually describe five
levels or dimensions of the soul. Nefesh is the soul as the engine of physical life. Ruach is the emotional self and "personality." Neshamah is the intellectual self. Chayah is the supra-rational self--the seat of
will, desire, commitment and faith. Yechidah
connotes the essence of the soul--its unity with its source, the
singular essence of G-d. For the essence of the soul of man is
"literally a part of G-d above"--a piece of G-d in us, so to speak.

What do you think the soul is? I think a soul is like a spiritual entity, made of energy or "ethril" energy

Why do we have the soul? Why? Who knows. I don't think we'll ever know.

What can we use the soul for? It isn't ours it's Gods, we have it temporarily for as long as he allows us to keep it in this body, then he takes it back, then gives itto us again in another body. Although it is always ours, it is also always his.

Does the soul have a colour, or change colour according to what type of person we are?
E.g. Bad people have black souls, good have white. I think a typical answer here would be 'white', however I don't think the soul actually has a colour, of if it does, it's like the Aura Smile forever changing.

Why do we need a soul? I don't think we could live without one. For me a soul is what gives you creativity, joy, emotions, love, and so on. The soul is your very essence and makes you feel.

Nice concepts Medusa, I agree with you because I too believe that everything has a soul Smile It's why I hate it when people harm animals or plants for the fun of it, however I also have to understand that everything has its place in the cycle of life. A harsh one, but a place none the less.
