The Spirit is the innermost Self that is of God. The Spirit is the Life Force. Without Spirit, the body is dead.
Bible writers used the Hebrew word ruʹach or the Greek word pneuʹma when writing about the “spirit.” The Scriptures themselves indicate the meaning of those words. For instance, Psalm 104:29 states: “If you [Jehovah] take away their spirit [ruʹach], they die and return to the dust.” And James 2:26 notes that “the body without spirit [pneuʹma] is dead.” In these verses, then, “spirit” refers to that which gives life to a body. Without spirit, the body is dead. Therefore, in the Bible the word ruʹach is translated not only as “spirit” but also as “force,” or life-force.
The Soul is the connection between Spirit and the person’s mental, emotional, physical body thru which the Life Force flows. It possesses the memories of past life experiences and the characteristics which imbue the individual with personality.
As life’s lessons are learned, the soul evolves and is transmuted and transformed such that some rarified and purified elements become virtuous enough to pass thru the Crystal Cord and become one with the Spirit.
Virtues are divine qualities and help define Spirituality. The soul possesses the memories (mental, emotional and physical) of past and present lives of our human existences, our weaknesses. As we go thru our daily lives, these problematic flawed characteristics rise to the level of our awareness as though they were bubbles in a cauldron. It behooves us to not react to them (don’t put e•motion into them), but instead passively and dispassionately simply be aware of them while neither condemning nor condoning them. Simply ‘be aware’, not beware (which induces fear, resistance).
Allow yourself to be aware of where in your body and the ‘what and how’ you actually feel as these memories try to re-manifest themselves into existence as problems to be solved ‘once and for all’. By not vesting physical, emotional and mental resources into them, you allow the light from your inner self to gradually transform and transmute them. And as you become more aware of your misconceptions, negativities and irrationalities, you can bathe them in the Violet Fire for enhanced purification.
