SOUL vs SPIRIT
Spirit knows two things. To love and be love. Just that. It knows no other thing. It is pure consciousness. It does not carry emotion.
It is infused inside every single atom, every single quantum particle. It is carrying everything inside it. The bodies we have, is inside a deeper spirit like the ocean carries its waves.
Throughout Vedanta Philosophy you will find reference to the soul and spirit in this way – as wave and the ocean. Continuing this analogy we can understand the difference very easily.
Our individual Spirit is inside this Oceanic Spirit. The oceanic spirits combine and make an even bigger consciousness pool and it stretches on and on. But Like a drop of ocean is never separate from the ocean, You are never separate from Spirit. You are it. You are part of it.
And the funny thing about this spirit is that it is holographic in nature. So in this multiverse, a drop of ocean is as powerful as the ocean itself. It is crazy that this is so but it is true. A single spirit is as powerful as the greater spirit. It is like the power inside a giant flame and the power inside the flame of a candle. They have same powers.
The true human potential does not lie in its physical strength and power. The true human potential lies in how far can it stretch the boundaries of its spirit and how much of the consciousness can it really touch upon. How much self-aware can it be?
A Soul on the other hand has a very specific role and it carries the drop of spirit but imagine it to be like a colored water inside a glass. Since it came from the ocean, it does carry the qualities of spirit but is choosing to live a life of its own.
Like a Wave chooses to live the life of 8+ seconds similarly, a soul decides to feel what it likes to be when it forgets the vastness of its being, when it limits itself and see itself from this tiny window in space and time from the viewpoint of its own coloured nature, may be for 80+ years.
This ideological separation gives the soul a very deep appreciation as well as longing for its oceanic spirit. It always misses home as it forgets for the duration of this unique experience that it is always home, that it has created this false identity of a wave and that it is temporary.
This soul will remember the experiences it has as multiple waveforms. Like it was once a short wave, once a long wave etc. So the soul can carry impressions from one lifetime to another lifetime.
A Soul can have a multitude of emotions (other than love) as impressions of its lifetimes get embedded in the subtle bodies associated with soul. So a soul could be stuck in its journey back home to the ocean. It may need help from a Shaman or an Intuitive or Psychic Healer for its proper merging back into the ocean.
The Greater Spirit records all soul experiences. It is a collective data bank. Some people refer to this as the Akashic Records or Akashic Fields. Any soul can tap into the directory of the spirit and get information from any time and space.
So, to create an Individualised Soul, all you need is a small drop of Spirit Essence (pure consciousness) and connect it to Subtle Bodies (Emotional body, Mental Body including an Ego :A unique personality flavour/color, Energy Body). Ta Da! A soul is ready for its incarnation.
Thanks for reading. This knowledge is channelled and it may need refinement in future as I get more clear images, visions and words in my ascension journey. Hope you got some clarity. Leave some thoughts for me in the comments. See you next time.
