Soul is reflected in appearance, that unique expression of you that is forever expanding and growing based on your life choices. Soul evolves through physical experience to move beyond the judgment and fear of the mind. Soul transcends self-created limitations to come to recognize itself as eternal and ultimately, unites with the oneness of Spirit.

"The soul--which I'm defining as our capacity for these deeply positive human qualities--is something that, in most of us, desperately needs to be developed. Too many of us live in a fractured state, deeply divided against ourselves--often far more so than we are aware of or able to feel. We exist in a self-generated vacuum of moral ambiguity, where everything is relative and our attention is focused mainly on our emotional state. Most of us know a lot more about what really matters than we are willing to live up to. Indeed, we are attracted to that which is beautiful, profound, and meaningful but find ourselves lacking the soul strength to really struggle, to engage in a life-and-death wrestling match with our own division, cynicism, and inertia. The awful truth is that it is just easier for us not to care that much. In order to care that much, we have to be willing to feel a connection with life that is so deep that it hurts. We have to be ready to step onto the field of our own experience in a way that is authentic, unconditional, and deeply committed--to embrace a kind of fearless vulnerability where our transparency is our strength and the living experience of connection is permanent, unbroken, and inescapable."

for, mirror-like, each soul reflects the others."

Your job is to learn about yourself from your experiences and change yourself. This is spiritual growth.""Your soul is that part of you that existed before you were born and will continue to exist after you die. [It] is immortal. You are a powerful and creative compassionate and loving spirit that has entered the Earth school to learn lessons and to give gifts.

"True nature, the Essence of the soul, is valuable, is worthy of appreciation of love, not because it gives her something, not because it adds to her, not because it liberates her, but because it is beautiful. Its value is in its beauty and perfection. Its truth is its value, and this truth is the essence of all beauty. The beauty of a form turns out to be this transparency to true nature. The more a manifest form expresses and embodies true nature with its timeless features, the more the eyes of the soul behold it as beautiful. Beauty is a reflection of truth, and is ultimately true nature. And the dimension of true nature that reveals this essential beauty is that of divine love."
Harold S. Kushner

Hildegard of Binden
"Just as a mirror, which reflects all things, is set in its own container, so too the rational soul is placed in the fragile container of the body. In this way, the body is governed in its earthly life by the soul, and the soul contemplates heavenly things through faith."
"God epiphanizes Himself to the soul according to the essence of that soul, which is at once physical and spiritual. Then the soul becomes aware that it sees God, but through Him, not through itself; it loves only Him, not through itself, but in such a way that it is He who loves Himself; it is not the soul which loves Him; it contemplates God in every being, but thanks to a gaze which is the divine gaze itself. It becomes aware that He loves no other than Himself; He is the Lover and the Beloved, He who seeks and He who is sought."

“You have the need and the right to spend part of your life caring for your soul. It is not easy. You have to resist the demands of the work-oriented, often defensive, element in your psyche that measures life only in terms of output -- how much you produce -- not in terms of the quality of your life experiences. To be a soulful person means to go against all the pervasive, prove-yourself values of our culture and instead treasure what is unique and internal and valuable in yourself and your own personal evolution.”

"This phase (of your soul) is so important because you learn so much in human form. This is where the individual's ‘spark' or existence can expand into bigger, more powerful energies, not entities. Entities are closed systems whereas energies are open systems... Some energies are not as potent. The only way to develop a potent energy is to spend an existence on the earth. There, one can develop a compassionate nature so that when passing onto other dimensions, one can be of help."
"If you die you're completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on."

Tenzin Gyatso (14th Dalai Lama)
"I call the light and high aspects of my being spirit and the dark and heavy aspects soul.
Soul is at home in the deep, shaded valleys. Heavy torpid flowers saturated with black grow there. The rivers flow like warm syrup. They empty into huge oceans of soul.
Spirit is a land of high white peaks and glittering jewel-like lakes and flowers. Life is sparse and sounds travel great distances.
There is soul music, soul food, and soul love...
People need to climb the mountain not simple because it is there
But because the soulful divinity needs to be mated with the spirit."
The Buffalo Kingdom through Karen Danrich ("Mila")
"...each of us has a purpose that we choose at soul level. Finding and fulfilling that purpose is necessary in order to live a life of well-being and joy... [to do this we] need to learn to become quiet and receptive to the answers that come, not from the outside world, but from one's own connection to one's soul. When we allow ourselves to be guided from within and act on that wisdom we learn that the "special" thing we are meant to do is to discover and follow our unique purpose in life.
Spirit asks that each listen within and follow their internal guidance and leading implicitly. Spirit asks that humans drop their preoccupations that distract and distort the choice to ascend, such as artificial forms of entertainment. The vibrations created through such technology interfere with the communication between the spirit and the form. As one moves out into nature, away from the density and electricity of your cities, one shall more readily tune into the guidance of spirit. Then the guidance from spirit can lead one "home"."
