“What is the “Self” with a capital “S” is a question that humanity has been asking for generations. Science is now beginning to open doors to the idea that we are more than biological entities; that we do go beyond the prolific borders of our bodies and well into the ethers of Universal existence. Do I even dare to go so far and say that we are the Universe?
Well, it’s true! In fact the oxygen, nitrogen and carbon atoms that are in our bodies were created in stars over 4.5 billion years ago! We are literally made of star stuff. Far…out.
So, if we know that we are not simply our bodies, are we then our minds? Our thoughts? Well, yes and no. We are what moves the mind; what creates the thoughts and what is aware of and observes it all. We are Consciousness.
Believe it or not you can entertain the ideas of the spirit and soul without the weight of religion to water them both down. And either one can and I’m sure does resonate with you on a very deep, personal level once you remove all of the labels of theology as well as the criticism of pre-Jungian Psychiatry.
My personal take on the Spirit is that is is “mana” or your life-force energy and is what connects you to Mother Earth while you are here incarnated as a Human Being. Once your Spirit is disconnected from the physical body, the Soul must leave. The Soul is the part of you that contains all of your past-life memories, and the part that merges with the Ego to create the personality of your current life or incarnation.
I am even writing on book on both the Spirit and Soul and continually doing research on them both. I often myself ending up researching on what the Self is defined as and came across the video below on one of my most favorite You Tube channels of all time, ScienceAndNonduality.
Please check it out! While it’s only a mere 3 minutes long, it’s full of some awesome and amazing information I’m sure you will find informative and that will definitely leave you asking NEW questions! 🙂
