Recovering the Soul

The soul is deep, watery, soothing, mysterious and unsettling. It is the deepest parts of the ocean, reflecting back the deepest part of self. At times calm and serene, sometimes terrifyingly tumultuous, and still other times wavy and playful. Mystical and alluring in its beauty and depth, and yet unsettling when experienced as a darkened void. The souls speaks to one through restless nights as well as blissful days, through one's deepest joys as well as their pain. It reflects one's earthy humanness, in the most exquisite shades and hues, reminding one of what it means to be truly alive.

The soul is one's own fluid nature as a child of Earth/Gaia/the Goddess, and she is a living, conscious manifestation of the blessed Divine Mother. Her soul is that of the World's Soul of which one's soul is a part. One often thinks of the vertical dimension in relation to its spiritual height, but one must not forget the treasures to be found in combing the soulful depths below, or the womb-like realm of the feminine. Consider the following description:

"Soul is the invisible, mysterious, and softly radiant element that fuses your being and makes you human. Like plasma is in your veins, it gives you a sense of meaning, feeling, connection and depth. If you have soul, you have a visible glow and are alive and present."
        -Thomas Moore, A Religion of One's Own

I would add that Soul is one's source of vitality and sense of belonging on Earth as a child of the Divine Mother/Moon/Earth Goddess as well as the Heavenly Father/Sun (as dual aspects of Source, stepping down into materiality). This is why in many of the older cultures and languages of Earth, objects or nouns were designated as either masculine/feminine.

Let us now make the distinction between Soul and Spirit. Consider the following description of Spirit:

"Spirit directs your attention to the cosmos and planet, to huge ideas and vast adventures, to prayer and meditation and other spiritual practices, to a worldview and philosophy of life. Spirit expands your heart and mind, gives you vision and courage, and eventually leaves you with a strong sense of meaning and purpose."
          -Thomas Moore, Care of the Soul
