Humans are made up of 3 parts – Spirit. Soul and Body. Our Spirit nature is that of God. Like a wave in the ocean, we are part of God and It is part of us. But that does mean that we are God no more than the wave is the ocean.
The Soul is the part of us that is our emotional and mental self. It is the part of us where all our growth and development occur. However, the soul does not have the 5 senses, hence we need the body to be the eyes, ears, hands, and feet of God.
It is in the soul that all of our big changes occur. For instance, the body can work out in order to change, but the decision to want that change and the determination to do what it needs to do comes from the soul. Without it, at the first discomfort, the body would say – forget this!
We connect with God through the spirit side of ourselves, but it is the soul that decides to take the time needed to have that connection.
So, what is your soul yearning for you to be, to truly express the aspect of God that is unique in you? In the movie, Soul, Joe finally realizes that the best part of living isn’t chasing ambition or catching hold of a fleeting dream, but to truly live every minute.
That sounds like something God created us for – to appreciate life and to live it fully
