The Soul Revisited

There are over 7 billion people on earth. What makes each of us so different? Science will say that we are all identical in the components that make each of us. But what makes each of us different? Is there something in the body that distinguishes each individual?

The human body generates energy from the foods we consume. This energy can be converted to many forms of energy that sustain our bodies. The mind benefits from this source of energy, forming our thoughts, which can also be considered, composed of energy. Our positive thoughts release positive energy, while our negative thoughts release negative energy. Positive thoughts are good thoughts of helping others, while negative thoughts include greed, arrogance and self-love. Positive energies are said to help the body grow and develop, while negative energy harms the body in the form of illness and depression.

Suppose each of us has within the body a positive energy force that is everlasting. Some will say this energy force originates from God. This energy force in our body has the capability to continually attract the negative energy produced by the mind. Like the sand in the sewage systems that purifies our water supply, the energy force captures our negative energies (evil thoughts), and eliminates them from our bodies.

These negative energies trapped by the energy force are released into the environment. These negative energies can be converted to intense weather conditions, and seismic movements. These negative energies released from our bodies also boomerang back to us as sufferings or inconveniences in our lives. Remember that energy is never created or destroyed. We create our own suffering by the amount of evil created by our minds.

Like the DNA (genes), the energy force stores important information of each individual. They store and eliminate the negative energies created by our past evil thoughts. It is this energy force that continues beyond the termination of our bodies. Like our report cards, we carry this to the next level. For the proponents of reincarnation, the energy force transfers to a developing fetus, continuing the process of eliminating the evils that have accumulated in the previous lives. For those who believe in heaven that is separate from earth, the energy force is ready to be judged.

What is this energy force? In some religious textbooks, they call it the innermost heart. Others will call it the soul. Whether scientist would ever be able to locate it in our bodies is unknown. But it is something to think about whether we believe in God or not.
