“The soul is the force that wants you to be here.”
What is the soul?
It’s a question we’ve been asking for centuries.
On one episode of her Super Soul Sunday show, Oprah asked guests, “What is the soul?” Eckhart Tolle responded, “The soul is our innermost being; the presence that you are beyond form, the consciousness that you are beyond form.” Gary Zukav described the soul as “that part of you that existed before you were born and is there after you die,” while Sarah Ban Breathnach said it is the “spiritual essence of who we are.”
To the many responses to this question, both on Oprah’s show and throughout the history of esoteric thought, I add my own: The soul is the force that wants you to be here.
Your soul is your greatest advocate. Your conspirator. Your co-creator. And a friend like no other. Your soul is your copilot in the adventure of your life, and learning to understand this relationship is essential if you wish to harness and direct your creative magic, and master the easy way to enlightenment.
