“What is the Soul?”
Rev. Michael Gott
“Soul” is a beautiful, but hard to define word. Many spiritual traditions and teachers have defined it in many different ways. For the purpose of our Touchstone program, we will think of the soul as “our deepest and most essential self, unharmed by any condition or event, existing before birth, and continuing after death.” This may not be the final word, but it will be a good way to work with spiritual principles and practices to tap into the deep wisdom within us to reveal more and more of our inviolable and intrinsic wholeness.
Affirmation for Week 5:
My soul reflects the beauty of Spirit. I live my life in peace, in joy, and in love.
The Revelation of Wholeness: Body, Mind, & Soul
“The kingdom of God does not come with observation; nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”
This powerful statement from Jesus is the philosophical and theological basis we bring to our work in prayer and transformation. The qualities of God that we are seeking to experience—Love, Peace, Joy, Power—are already within us, awaiting our recognition. We are image-bearers of the Divine, already and eternally whole and complete. The “work” we do in our spiritual growth is all to reveal the wholeness that is already within us—that already IS us! Join us for this six-week journey of transformation as we learn tools, principles, and perspectives that will enable us to manifest this fundamental wholeness in all areas of our lives.
