Body and Soul 2019-005
What is the soul and where does it reside in us? I do not actually KNOW but have the following opinions. First, the body is a collector, a shell, a vehicle for the soul to inhabit and travel through life here on Earth. It has the elements needed to survive, to thrive, to exist as a means for the soul to travel in its journey from then, to now, to the next step of beyond.
We exist in form, which makes us unique from other type of entities. It, the body is vulnerable to life’s many trials and tribulations we put it through or what happens regardless of our desires. We abuse, mistreat, overindulge, and otherwise, do not absolutely take good care of this container of the soul. Such is life.
It has a built-in life span of use until, other than accidents, it succumbs to the reality of the planned obsolescence that was dictated at birth of an eventually occurring death.
Again, what is the soul that inhabits the body? The soul is the essence of who and what we are as we live out life. It is the what we truly are and who we are in our existence of living.
The soul is the epitome of everything we are as a person that exists. When the body dies, and is committed to ashes or burial, the soul is what lives onward. The soul has no form, no facial recognition showing of its existence. It is there, it can be everywhere, it encompasses and surpasses normal earthly capabilities. Pretty unique itself.
It, the soul, leaves behind, the human frailties, has an absence of pain and suffering, if any, when it is released from the body to continue the journey of life beyond.
The soul joins the other souls now able to relate to each other’s bodily mind memories of before. Each knows of each other’s before form of living, and who and where we are and the time span of life. Ancestors know the newbee that just arrived, and the new one, knows each of the old ones that traveled before to where they are now.
There are requirements, expectations, duties and responsibilities and the like. For the joys of eternal life, there are costs to endure, but in comparison, these are minute in nature, nothing that cannot be accomplished.
Earthly man-made thoughts of how things were to be, are what they were at that time; opinions and not facts. Nothing that the esteemed leaders could think of have any resemblance to reality of what is now, as the soul continues onward.
The newness of this soul’s life’s existence is beyond understanding and comprehensive thought to the human mind having a body before. When the soul meets the maker, all will be known, all will be understood and accepted.
The vessel, like a train going across the land, a ship plowing through water, a plane flying in the air all have a destination. When done the vessels purpose is also accomplished, with the cargo, the soul, delivered for continued life and existence.
If we do not take care of the body/vessel, so be it, but should we not nourish the soul for its journey of eternity? Is it not practical to consider what the soul is, and what entity created it for us? Is not the God of the Universe, the one we could acknowledge, as the reason for our existence and opportunity to eternal life.
