In one of India’s grandest and most beautiful pieces of literature ever written in my opinion, the Bghavad Gita reads this: The soul is not born, nor does it die; it did not spring from something, and nothing sprang from it. It is unborn, eternal, immortal, and ageless. It is not destroyed when the body is destroyed.” As soon as you think you know what it is, then that is exactly when it falls out of your knowing completely. The knowing of what is known of as the soul. It is simply always supreme and always so vast. Could that be why it is deemed so offensive by others to hear people around them claim that they are God? Is it just too much to fathom or comprehend truly all at once? So many questions.
I can breathe yes but I know what gives me that is also what gives life to all around me to or the Carbon, correct? So then why are we trying to reduce it? Wouldn’t being more environmentally friendly be about being off the grid of what is normal? Just some thoughts on it. If you can’t define the “soul” by certain energies then why can’t it be drawn from all energies?
Though this is a divine paradox of “I am nothing, yet I am everything” because each one of us humans within our physical vessels that we have want to be right in our own ways. We all lie, aren’t perfect as we state, or don’t know everything either. The organism is so creating us as it goes along in our image and other images. Stay patient. Peace.
