Your soul is the essential "You". Your "spirit". Your ethics.Your sense of right and wrong. In other words, your soul is what you are!
Humans have tried to explain the soul over many centuries. The above is about the best the human race has come up with.
Of course, there are those who think of the soul as an actual "spirit", that lives on after we die. To my mind, that's a lot of nonsense.
Depends, some say you earn a soul through hardship and self reflection, other believe you get a soul once you're born, some say it happens while still in the womb [I've heard anywhere from conception to 6 months depending on your path] but a soul is a part of you until you die, you cannot steal, sell, or destroy a soul because it only leaves you after death. Once you die there's several beliefs as to what happens, heaven, reincarnation, or just dispersed into energy. Of course a soul is just a belief, some don't believe you have a soul, your mind makes you you and a soul is a comforting tale to help cope with death. Whatever you believe really.
I personally believe that our souls are made of energy. When we die our energy goes into a new life, human or not. Do we need them? I'm honestly not sure, I'd like to think that we would, but I can't say for sure. I think souls can be damaged, but not broken completely. I know I believe that they exist, but if you ask another person they might not say the same thing.
Your soul preety much exists, you soul is You and only you. You are unique and that's your soul. Just you your persona, exactly you. In my opinion, souls are consisted of a unique type of energy.
We need them, for our liberation. You wouldn't like the opossite....
To understand what soul is, first you must make a difference between your body, and your soul. Soul is not your mind, your energy or whatever, soul is you, you are the living soul, it is you, your consciousness, your free will. God created us to be Gods by nature, but humans by purpose. Only our soul is truly immaterial, everything else is part of our body, a mechanism following our will - physical body, mind, our energical body...
By grace, and connection to the spirit, soul is immortal, we are immortal. However, there are differences between souls of man, celestial beings, and souls of animals. Our soul is linked to our spirit, and when our body dies, soul lives on with spirit, soul of animal is linked to their body, and when animal dies, its soul dies with body (but well, its spirit lives on).
"One soul is worth more than the whole world".
Also, Soul starts to exist same moment when you start to exist - at the moment of your conception your soul start to exist, soul is not pre-existent to the body.
Your soul is energy. A divine type of energy. It needs to be cleansed,fed knowledge ,fed love,and takes in all that you as human have learned. Its energy has lived through many lives. Some are older and wiser as have learned much in each human life. We must learn and feed this prescious energy as much as possible in each life span. It builds stronger each time. Some people have young souls while others have aged souls with much wisdom. We can hurt our souls by starving of love,positivity,and lack of inspirational learning.
