The Soul & The Brain (excerpt from Volume 2)

Soul:
I realize that most people view the Soul as a singular being, like a human, and that will make it difficult to see just how expansive the Soul is.
Instead, let us imagine the Soul as a breeze.

Brain:
A breeze?

Soul:
Yes. And now imagine this breeze has the ability to think intelligently.

Brain:
Just one large and intelligent breeze…

Soul:
For now…

Brain:
Okay.

Soul:
Now tell me all about being a breeze.

Brain:
I can’t see it – but it’s everywhere. It provides this body with the ability to live because it flows in and out of me. It has no edges, no beginnings, and no endings, and it is always on the move. How’s that?

Soul:
That’s pretty good, actually. The thing to notice is how it is impossible to tell one breeze from another. And the air your body takes in is not held onto permanently. The air goes in and goes out; in fact, the body cannot hold a breeze in the lungs for very long no matter how hard it tries.

Brain:
True…

Soul:
There are many breezes, but they cannot avoid one another; they cannot separate. Each breeze moves through all other breezes freely and without restriction and can travel wherever it pleases within the realm from which it was made. Souls are really close to that analogy. Souls do not go into the body and stay there; they move in and out freely because they are just too vast and free flowing in their nature. Yet, even though the Soul moves freely, they are always still connected to the body because the body is walking around inside of the Soul; just like your body is walking around completely surrounded by the breeze. And so, because a Soul cannot be contained, it can do multiple things, be multiple things, and move to multiple places all at once.
