The Eternal Soul
I can remember my parents telling me stories of running through the cemetery late at night after a school function. They would describe luminescent balls of light that would appear to arise from the cemetery grounds soaring to the heavens. I am not sure of the veracity of these stories; if they were just amusing tales to frighten us. My recent posts on energy has reminded me of these stories that were forgotten somewhere in the recess of my mind.
Some propose that our thoughts are composed of some form of energy, vibrating with intense frequency like sound waves. With each type of thought having a distinctive vibration and frequency. Let us propose that self-centered thoughts have frequencies and vibrations different from philanthropic thoughts. Let us also propose a site in the mind where these energies are stored and released from. May we be bold enough to call this site the soul of the body?
Suppose these negative energies in our souls are released and converted to chemical energy, releasing toxins and causing stress, headaches and other diseases in our bodies. Consider also conversion to electrical or radiant energy, inducing cancerous growth. Consider the distinctive energy of the positive thoughts, releasing chemicals that provide health to the body and protect the body from disease. Imagine doctors diagnosing disease based on our thoughts!
In reality, what is our identity? What makes one person different from the other? The soul essentially becomes our identity. It stores our thoughts of evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) and good (giving, understanding, and selflessness). This storage is in some form of distinctive energy, separate from the other identified energy groups that we are familiar with. This unidentified energy can be converted to other energy sources and may be released to other locations, eventually affecting our bodies in some manner.
But what happens when the body ceases to function? May we propose that this energy leaves the body possibly converting to another source of energy like heat, and be absorbed by our atmosphere. Or will this energy go to heaven, being embraced by God? Imagine this energy from the heavens finding it way to the soul of a developing fetus. The energies converting back to its distinctive vibrations and frequencies of the original thought processes. In essence, the body is new, but with the thought patterns of the previous lives. This concurs with our religion that states that God lends our bodies to us, but our minds are ours to use as we please.
