Is there a soul?
For thousands of years people speak of the soul. No one was able to proof its existence nor to disproof it. Even though scientists were able to trigger spiritual experiences by stimulating certain parts of the brain and therefore claim that the brain is responsible for our experience, the question remains what makes the experience subjective and personal? In other words, there is an 'I' consciousness that can only be experienced by one self. No one can know how another person feels and what their experience is.

We are not just made of matter that reacts to different chemical/biological processes within our organism and brain. There seems to be a life force and soul consciousness. Something that gives life and speaks to us.
Everyone has a subjective and unique experience of their existence. No two are alike. We don't even know when we speak of colors, let's say blue, that blue looks the same to one person as to another.

Some deceased people make themselves known to their loved ones after they left their bodies. Is that their soul contacting their loved ones. Do we have a soul? What is it? Some say it 's invisible, some say it doesn't exist, some say it does. Your thoughts please.

Re: Is there a soul?
Is there one central soul or are there many individual souls? Are we part of one soul source and living separate having countless experiences leading back to the one soul?

Re: Is there a soul?
Does your soul enjoy all the negativity that is pinned on glp right now? Could it be that people are too stuck in fear and mind, always thinking, fighting with each other because of their egos that act as their G-d's trying to overpower the language and the cries of our soul that just wants to be happy?

Re: Is there a soul?
interesting question

I have heard it said that people have souls
and animals do not.

then I make the comment that human DNA
is 97% Monkey DNA

so if monkeys have no soul,
then 97% of us have no soul

this debate will go on for eternity

Interesting. The Janis (religious sect in India) believe that even the smallest organisms have a soul and they us a small brush to sweep any insects before them so they don't step or sit on them and don't kill any of them.

Re: Is there a soul?
Although I was born and raised a Christian, early into adulthood I questioned the whole God/soul/creation thing. I eventually came to the conclusion that science is all we really have to put our "faith" in and rejected the idea of a God and afterlife. Then I had a heart attack and flat lined. I experienced a reality and existence I'd never sensed before and was in a remarkably wonderful place/dimension. Of course this can't be proven to anyone, nor do I try to convince others of my experience. Science (REAL science) is wonderful. However, too many "scientific" types have spoken much dogma and with the unscientific who try to come off as scientific by trying to negate any type of ethereal existence. A true scientist would say something like, "we don't know...there are studies that support both sides of the issues, but studies can often be in error or even biased when studying such a subject. We don't know, and can't possibly know at this time".
As for myself, it's not a belief, but a knowledge that our consciousness goes on. But this was an event unto myself and I have no right (or means) to try to prove it to anyone.

It's either yes or no or somewhere between. The problem I have with religion is this currency of the immortal soul.

The best thing is to leave religion out of it and study it. I'm pretty sure in time physics will get at the truth. After all, there's much we don't know. Like, what occupies the massive spaces between the nucleus and proton of an atom? We haven't a clue yet and probably a long way off from finding out.

Re: Is there a soul?
Most certainly and I've never heard a better explanation then this and you might want to read the whole book for much more on the soul from God's perception. Excerpted from page 43and 47 of"Conversations with God
· an uncommon dialogue" ·
book 1
Neale Donald Walsch
1992 -1994
[link to www.humanitysteam.ru]

"Your soul (subconscious, id, spirit, past, etc.) is the sum total of every feeling you’ve ever
had (created). Your awareness of some of these is called your memory. When you have a
memory, you are said to re-member. That is, to put back together. To reassemble the parts.
When you reassemble all of the parts of you, you will have re-membered Who You Really
Are."-God hf

What the soul is after is—the highest feeling of love you can imagine. This is the soul’s
desire. This is its purpose. The soul is after the feeling. Not the knowledge, but the feeling. It
already has the knowledge, but knowledge is conceptual. Feeling is experiential. The soul
wants to feel itself, and thus to know itself in its own experience.
The highest feeling is the experience of unity with All That Is. This is the great return to Truth
for which the soul yearns. This is the feeling of perfect love. Perfect love is to feeling what perfect white is to color. Many think that white is the absence of
color. It is not. It is the inclusion of all color. White is every other color that exists, combined.
So, too, is love not the absence of an emotion (hatred, anger, lust, jealousy, covetousness),
but the summation of all feeling. It is the sum total. The aggregate amount. The everything.
Thus, for the soul to experience perfect love, it must experience every human feeling.
How can I have compassion on that which I don’t understand? How can l~ forgive in another
that which I have never experienced in Myself? So we see both the simplicity and the
awesome magnitude of the soul’s journey. We understand at last what it is up to:
The purpose of the human soul is to experience all of it—so that it can be all of it."-Godhf hi
'Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.' - Dr. Seuss
'love has no opposite as it is the divine solvent that ends duality.' - m'Lord
'Be the love that you are' -m'Lord
The amount of love and good feelings you have at the end of your life is equal to the love and good feelings you create during your life.- mine
Yes, the things that others think, say, or do will sometimes hurt you— until they do
not anymore.What will get you from here to there most quickly is total honesty—
being willing to assert, acknowledge, and declare exactly how you feel about a thing.
Say your truth—kindly, but fully and completely. Live your truth, gently, but totally
and consistently. Change your truth easily and quickly when your experience brings
you new clarity.-God

Sorry, I did not read the link you've kindly provided (no time!). But, I always see a big red flag when someone says "God told me -----". Why has "God" chosen this one (or few) people to bestow knowledge upon? There are countless "God told me"s....which one to believe? That's the kicker. Belief. The only thing that matters (which I agree with you) is love...unconditional love. It's the only thing that matters. No belief system, it just is.

Re: Is there a soul?
If we could totally finish our conditioning that thinks we are a physical entity then we would not feel the weight of the body Just like driving a car, we do not feel the weight of the car.

I have experienced this and believe that when you are light, no burden of the body, then you are blissfully happy even whilst performing action through the physical body.
