Character of the Soul: Soul awareness isn’t just about knowing you have a soul, but it is a good point to start with, but being aware of your soul in other words knowing what your soul is all about because it’s the amount of lives lived & how they were lived that determines what your soul is all about. For example say that I lived all my lives as a slave compared to someone who has always been a slave owner, both these souls are going to be uniquely different in character & yes souls do have character even Jesus & Buddha had souls with character however don’t get the soul mixed up with the inner self, the soul is the doorway to the inner self it doesn’t seem to be the inner self as the inner self is pure consciousness without form but on the other hand the soul is consciousness with a certain form of character as it’s the character that gives the soul form & yes you can see souls if one was in tune enough to these vibrations.
This might seem confusing so I will try to explain further. The inner self has no form on it’s own as only when it takes on a soul does it have form through soul experiences but that soul only has a basic formed character to start with as it’s lived no lives as yet to form a more in-depth character, the more lives the soul lives the more character it has & this is what gives us our personality when we are first born & our physical looks to a certain extent. Yes we do attain some of our looks & personality from our parents for the main reason we tend to live with these same souls life after life which builds up our soul’s personality & character however our own personally life experiences also build up on our own personality & character as well that is why we are all so different & unique. Looks also come from the family we are born into so the diversity between souls is huge depending on the experiences & lives lived.
The following link provided is an interesting little quiz to do with what kind of soul you are: http://www.blogthings.com/whatkindofsoulareyouquiz/
Our past lives are going to determine who we are & the best way I know how to do this is through past life regression. If you are interested in finding your soul & becoming familiar with it past life regression can help one find who you are as a whole not just what you are now, this is done in many ways, some people use hypnotherapy, some people go to psychics & mediums & even your dreams can give you hints of who you are as a whole so there are many avenue’s one can take to find your whole self the soul.
Shooting for the Stars: Why shoot for the unknown when we have the stars to shoot for!! The unknown is pure consciousness & will never be fully conscious to us while we have a soul & the soul of course is the stars which are by the way the doorway to the inner self. By rediscovering our soul we have access to our inner self & because of this soul we can do what pure consciousness can’t, literally experience life itself. Once you give up the soul & become pure consciousness again you can feel all these experiences but you can’t literally be these experiences as you have no individuality/character to do so as it’s the soul that’s not just the doorway to pure consciousness/inner self but to any other world/reality one wishes to experience firsthand so why go any further than being soul aware?
Let’s look at this another way, if pure consciousness, being of everything, didn’t need a soul to literally experience life itself why have we got a soul then? The soul is the doorway to life itself & to become aware of our own soul is about as far as anyone would need to go, any further you lose the doorway/star gate. I’ve been one to refer to our soul as the inner self on many occasions & I think a lot of us do knowingly or not refer to the soul as the inner self but of course it’s not, however like I said it is the doorway/gateway to the inner self & also to many other worlds, realities & realms so saying it’s our inner self is still correct depending in how you perceive the inner self.
Is the inner self pure consciousness or is it our soul we are referring to? If we looked at pure consciousness which everything is made of is this our inner-self or is it the soul which is the true doorway to every existing vibration? If we look at the word inner-SELF it refers to self, is it referring to the self as an individual soul or self as a collective consciousness? The problem is it could be referring to both so the words inner-self can mean both the soul & pure consciousness depending in how you want to look at it. No wonder spirituality is so confusing at times!!
In all what this is saying is don’t look beyond the stars when the stars has everything you need & more & if you do you will fail all the time.
