"I got your back but you best to watch your front."-GZA
It's all in your brain.
"The Devil is not the Prince of Matter; the Devil is the arrogance of the spirit, faith without smile, truth that is never seized by doubt. The Devil is grim because he knows where he is going, and, in moving, he always returns whence he came."
slim, if that was tru, your brainless self would be soulless as well.
the soul or spirit is the master to your meat puppet(body).
think of it like this:
your spirit commands your brain which in turn commands your body.
if you wanted to lift your foot, your desire to raise your foot begins the process. your brain cannot be the source of desire because your brain only processes and manages signals(data) like a computer. a computer can't do anything without a program and a program is made by a programmer.
My understanding is that the soul is a specific part of the spirit. The spirit being the complete makeup of your vehicle. The physical, emotional and mental bodies are all part of the spirit. The physical being the densest form of the spirit. The soul is the part of the spirit that houses the consciousness. Although that may not be the best word because it implies that the consciousness can be contained. More accurately the soul is the part of the spirit where the consciousness is focused so that it may inhabit an individual.
@falcon- tru... tru. it gets kinda tricky tho don't it? for simplicities sake i didn't get into that.
@pale- those diagrams are accurate but can be misleading to the uninitiated, mainly cause the higher planes are non-local, meaning that 3D space and distance, are AND are not, relevant to the point in space where the physical is positioned.
i could interact with you from where i am right now on a higher plane yet be affected by someones aura who is in the room with me.
