What is our Authentic Nature?

Soul is our essence, our authentic nature; the loving wisdom that is core within each of us; the eternal aspect of ourselves that has always been and always will be in union with all that is. When we live in harmony with our souls, we’re living from the depths of our true selves, our divine selves, and we’re connected to all of life.

We guide people to cultivate harmony and peace within themselves, with others, and with all of creation through insight-based programs open to all …”

What is Soul?

Soul is the doorway to authentic human nature.

The soul is the self, the “I” that inhabits the body and acts through it. Without the soul, the body is like a light bulb without electricity, a computer without the software, a space suit with no astronaut inside.  (chadbad.org)

Appearing in The Huffington Post on 12/25/12: From the special “Soul to Soul” episode of “Super Soul Sunday,” Oprah asks today’s top spiritual experts, What is the soul? 

  • The soul is that part of you that existed before you were born and that will exist after you die. It’s the highest, most noble part of yourself that you can reach for.  Gary Zukav

The soul, I believe, is the fingerprint of God that becomes the physical body…  It’s the fingerprint… It’s unique to everybody.  Iyanla Vanzant

  • The soul is the core of your being. it is eternal. It doesn’t exist in space/time. It’s a field of infinite possibilities, infinite creativity. It’s your internal reference point with which you should always be in touch.  Deepak Chopra

The soul is the spirit. It is the connecting line to God. I believe the soul is where the Holy Spirit resides. I believe that it is literally, you know, when you pick up the phone and then you have your 4G network? The soul is the 4G network right to heaven with me.  DeVon Franklin

  • The soul is, I think, our capacity to see that our lives are about something more than simply the day to day, and that we’re here for a purpose. It could be connected to religion or not, but there is a purpose of your being here.  Daniel Pink

To me, the soul is a part of us that never dies. It’s who we are at our core. And it carries all the messages and lessons that we’ve learned in the past, and will carry all the lessons and the messages that we will carry into the future.  Debbie Ford

  • The soul is your inmost being. The presence that you are beyond form. The consciousness that you are beyond form, that is the soul. That is who you are in essence.  Eckhart Tolle

The indwelling consciousness that watches the mind come and go. That watches the heart come and go, the emotions of the heart. And watches the world pass before you. You, the conscious, the consciousness, the center of being, is soul.  Michael Singer

  • The soul is the birthless, deathless, changeless part of us. The part of us that looks out from behind our eyes and has no form. The soul is infinite so there is no in or out of it. It is everywhere. There’s no place that it is not.  Wayne Dyer

For me, (the soul) is the truth of who we are. The light, the love which is within us goes by different names, but the truth of us. Michelangelo said when he got a statue that he would go to the quarry and get a big piece of marble and the way he imagined it, God had already created the statue and his job was to just get rid of the excess marble. So that’s what we’re like. Inside is the being that God has already created. Some call it the Christ, the Buddha mind, the Shekinah, the light, the soul. And our job is to get rid of this excess, useless fear, thought forms of the world that actually hide the light of the soul.  Marianne Williamson

  • The soul is a divine part of our self. It is our divine nature. It is a part of us that is one with God. Everybody has a soul. It is the immortal internal part of ourselves. It never dies. It belongs to God.   Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

I believe that the soul is the essence of who and what we are. I personally believe that it transcends our leaving this mortal coil. And I think it comes with codes, and possibilities, and the next layers of who and what we may yet to be. it is often a pain the neck because it says, “Wake up. It’s time to wake up. Don’t go to sleep.” I think it is also the lure of our becoming. That’s what I think the soul is.  Jean Houston
