Ethereal Thoughts


 

What is the difference between the "Spirit" and the "Soul"? This is a question that complexes a lot of people in that they think of the "Spirit" and "Soul" as the same thing.

People have questioned this theory since the days of ancient Egypt. The Egyptians believed that the "KA" was like the "Spirit" which could travel to the after life, in other words, an invisible double, whereas the "Soul" was known as the "BA", the divine energy that was given to us by God or the Universe. To read more about their philosophy, please go to the links page and click on "Egyptian Mysteries".

Today, the belief is that the "Soul" is the divine energy given to us by God or the Universe (the same as the ancient Egyptians), while the "Spirit" is universal knowledge as well as the knowledge of ones's life, memories, feeling, humility, humanitarianism, goodness, and personal growth - the individual themselves, or what is termed "consciousness". Although the Egyptians believed that the "KA" took on the form of the physical appearance, in today's world we think of it more as active energy, without the physical body, however, we believe that the spiritual being does have an ethereal body (envelope so-to-speak), that can often merge with our own bodies, but can be captured at times via a camera, and not different then the "aura" that people often see around another person.

Although it has been said that "Spirits" can take on physical form so as to be recognized by us still in physical form, it is not the way they appear on the other side.

Some religions do believe, however, that at the end of the world, or the second coming of Christ, all persons will be given back their physical appearance and their physical bodies will be restored.

Quantum Physics is proving that all things falls within universal law, including the possibility of spirit visitation and communication, capturing orbs or spirit pictures, auras, and the necessity of each of us to pursue the knowledge of expanding our reality to accept what modern technology and experiments are proving. Visualization, astral projection, out of body experiences, near death experiences, meditation and a good dose of inquisitiveness leads us down a path of true learning.


Energy

 

The soul and spirit are made up of divine energy. The soul gives us life, but the spirit is the accumulation of all lessons learned, our individuality. Energy can often be seen by people or photographed, and this is referred to as their "aura". In areas of healers they use their own energy at times to correct the energy of the other. When someone's energy resonates within us, we are attracted to them, but there are times when their energy and ours does not resonate and try as you may, you will never feel close to them, or even be repelled by them. Thought and intent is also energy so they too radiate outside your body and cause an affect on the people and things around you. Energy is universal and cannot be destroyed.


A New Way of Looking At It!

 

All through my life I've heard the saying, "We are all connected". Although I "thought" I understood it at least to a certain degree, it has only been through intense research and study in quantum physics, the atmosphere, atoms, protons, neutrons, electrons, the process of ionization, the electromagnetic field, energy, and even silly things like spider webs, dust, moisture, and more that has lead me to what I believe is the "reality" of it all.

Recently I heard someone on TV say something to the effect that we are not physical beings that turn into spirits after our transition, but are spirits who are just existing in this physical realm for the time being.

This universe and everything in it is not a matter of separation, but a matter of everything and everyone being connected. Despite one's personal belief system, be it God, a Supreme Being, or Universal Law, one thing they all have in common is that something or someone has created absolute perfection. When you think of spirit/soul being a different frequency of energy then the entire theory falls into place when added to the knowledge that today's technology is teaching us.


The Weight of the Soul

 

Let's start out with a scientific study done by Duncan MacDougall, M.D. and written about in the "American Medicine", 1907. Dr. MacDouglass will try to prove that the weight of the soul really exists.

Out of respect for the writer, who's work is copywrited, I shall give a brief description of his work and ask that you link to his site in order to get the specific and astonishing results.

Taking with every possible consideration such as loss of air, loss of bowel and urine, evaporation, and more, he tested several people on a special bed attached to extremely fragile weights. Click Here! to read all about his experiments and his final conclusions.


Alive Analogy

 

Driving down the road this spring morning, with the sun shining and the temperature at 83, I could not notice the drastic change in the tree lined streets and how beautiful their buds and tiny leafs stood out. There were even flowering trees in full blooms of lilac, white, pink, and other colors.

I couldn't help but notice how much trees are like us. All of a sudden I saw the energy in them as being the soul of the tree, the trunk being the spirit, and the new and growing leaves being the body.

Let's take one feature at a time. The tree's energy is always there, even when in the dormat position during winter. It never leaves or the tree would die during these winter months, but they only transition to a different way of being.

The trunk if viewed as the spirit can be seen in the different kind of barks, colors, sizes, each being individual in nature, just as our spirits are different depending on the lessons we have learned.

I also realized that incarnation occurs in trees in that every spring they come back to life. Infant buds take form growing in size and deeper color into adulthood, and whithering in old age, growing and causing their leaves to be in a different position, sometimes growing to provide shade to other things, but no different then our sharing of lessons or aid to others, while we are in the physical realm. They constantly grow for the good, but never really lose their individuality, although the individuality may change in some aspects such as new branches, or in our case, new experiences.

In winter, these trees seem to die. Their leaves start to wilt, to turn color, to shrivel up, and eventally fall to return to the earth. This transition is no different then any of us passing from this physical plane.

The trees, like humans and all living things, need nurishment, water and air to survive. Sometimes a disease will take over and not allow a tree to grow as it should, or in some cases, will force its demise.

Humans have loving pets to keep them company, while trees have their pets too - the birds, squirrels, and insects that find harbor in them.

This visual and alive phenomenon of the tree has a great lesson for us to learn - just as the trees, and each and every person or living thing, all have both energy and spirit. The tree's leaves and our physical bodies will eventually fall and come to an end of its current cycle, but the soul/spirit will remain for another incarnation, or to take on another form.

Writing this article makes me think of a wonderful poem by poet, Joyce Kilmer. (1886–1918)

Trees

"I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is preast
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
