Soul, which you must be aware of yourself as a Soul and as one with God, not as a theory but as a living reality. Your Soul is who you truly are; it is more than your body, your thoughts, or your feelings. It is the highest aspect of yourself, where you and God are ONE.
This approach exists only to support people in expanding their awareness of the Soul and of God, so that it allows people to experience their true nature while enjoying greater health, wealth, happiness, abundance and joy.
Out of God come all things.
God loves all of Its creation.
Soul lost is irreplaceable.
What Is the Soul?
Mysteries of The Mind
A ‘living spirit’ is also called a soul in the Bible. Each human being’s body is built around their own personal spirit. Each spirit God created is unique. There are no two spirits alike. You are your personal spirit. It is your essence. Your personal spirit or soul is the real ‘you’ living inside your human body, which is a unique spirit compared to all other spirits created by God. Each human being has his or her own unique personal spirit or soul. This troubles most parents because they want their children to be exactly like them. This is impossible since each human being born on earth is a unique creature. The term ‘living spirit’ simply means a spirit who believes and loves God. The term ‘loves God’ means keeping God’s commandments. One of God’s commandments is to love other human beings. Anyone who hates another human being and says he loves God is a liar and does not have a ‘living spirit’
Most people looking for success on planet earth with only a physical- self - image of who they be-lie-ve themselves to be, may never locate true success, no matter how much money they accumulate and how much notoriety they achieve ... At best, they may earn a lot of money, big house, big car and a big identity crisis later in life, when the so called luxuries no longer satisfy their desire. Lamentable are the folks who are distinguished by the whole world and yet strangers to their true selves.
Now more than ever people need to understand who they are and the reason they exist. If humans go through life with no idea of who they truly are, they will get more and more lost in the high-tech revolution. Humanity requires a truthful, sound, solid foundation upon which they build their lives.
Many people who do not understand what intelligent energy is may declare a clone has no soul therefore is not really human. Many religious folks think they are superior to a dog or cat when it come to Gods creations and believe a soul is located solely somewhere in the human brain. They may well believe animals don't possess a soul, however if they possess intelligent energy, how can they not have a soul if it is defined as a life source?
The realm of the human soul.
The man is basically good, not evil. It is their experiences that cause people to commit evil deeds. It is not their basic nature to do so. People can mistakenly solve their problems by thinking only of their own personal interests and overlook or ignore how their acts affect others. This creates interpersonal strife and problems. The individuals advance to the degree they preserve their spiritual integrity and values, and remain honest and decent — indeed, individuals deteriorate to the degree they abandon these qualities.
Some religions try to help humanity by solving people's problems for them. Soul is different — it (soul) increases the ability and intelligence of the individual so he or she can improve his own life, overcome those factors that hold him down, and solve his or her own problems. What's more, once one has accomplished this (knows his soul and gains the certainty that he is himself, an immortal spiritual being, and not just a body) he or she naturally starts to reach out to help his family, friends and society.
Q: With all the recent talk about cloning, I’ve got to know: Would a human clone have a soul?
A: Yes, since every living thing has a soul. Plants have vegetative souls (capable of life and growth), animals have sensitive souls (capable of life, growth, and feeling), and humans have rational souls (capable of life, growth, feeling, and rational thought). Only the last kind survives death since only it is made of spirit; souls of plants and animals are made of matter and die when they die.
Since a human clone would be alive, it would have a soul, and since a human clone would be rational and possess a human body, it would have the same sort of soul as every other human. The soul is created directly by God. The human soul is the substantial form and animating life principle of the human body. How you get that body, whether by natural generation, in vitro fertilization, or cloning is irrelevant. God still creates its soul. .
Q: Do animals have souls like human beings?
A: Animals have souls--and so do plants. Does this answer sound like something out of the New Age movement? Don't worry--it isn't. Rest assured we're not saying animals and plants have souls like ours.
Yes, they do have souls. All living creatures have souls. Plants have what are called vegetative souls, which enable them to grow and reproduce. Animals have what are called sensitive souls, which allow them to feel. Humans have what are called rational souls, which allow us to engage in thought. Only the latter kind of soul survives death
The soul is the principle of life. Since animals and plants are living things, they have souls, but not in the sense in which human beings have souls. Our souls are rational--theirs aren't--and ours are rational because they're spiritual, not material.
Animals and plants can't do anything which transcends the limitations of matter. Although some animals seem clever, they don't actually possess conceptional intelligence. They can't, for instance, conceive of the abstract notion of justice.
Animals and plants also lack a moral sense. When you scold Spot for chewing the carpet and tell him what he did was "wrong," you aren't assigning guilt of sin to him, since he can't commit a sin.
Animal and vegetable souls are dependent entirely on matter for their operation and being. They cease to exist at death. (There's no "doggie heaven.")
Human souls, by contrast, aren't material. They're spiritual. Only a spirit can know and love, a spirit's two chief faculties being the intellect (which knows) and the will (which loves). We know human souls are spiritual since humans can know and love.
We also know human souls are immortal because spirits can't decompose. They have no parts: Only a thing with parts can fall apart. A spirit is a unit. It has no top or bottom, no left or right, no inside or outside.
Every bit of matter, even the smallest, has parts. The human body can decompose--it's made of matter, after all--but the human soul can't. That's why we say it's immortal.
Q: Does God have a body?
A: The anthropomorphites maintain their doctrine in defiance of verses such as John 4:24, in which Jesus teaches us that "God is a spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth." This means God has no body, because a spirit is, by nature, an incorporeal being. As Jesus tells us elsewhere, "a spirit has not flesh and bones" (Luke 24:39).
There is a keen difference between being a spirit and having a spirit, as the common phrases put it. Jesus says the Father is a spirit, not that the Father has a spirit, which means he lacks a body entirely. By contrast, men are said to have a spirit, since they have both a soul (which is a spirit) and a body.
The Church Fathers declared that God is an unchangeable, immaterial spirit who has an entirely simple nature--that is, a nature containing no parts, which rules out having a body since all bodies are extended over space and thus can be divided into parts.
Do you think animals are aware of God?
Do you think animals are aware of God? I'm not really wanting to debate whether animals have souls or not (though I think they do ~ mind, will, emotions). This is probably a question that really can't be answered but I just wonder sometimes if they are not aware of God on some level. They certainly seem to sense good & evil in people.
I think animals are aware of God!
I think that they are. I mean in the Bible, it's sometimes the animals who tell the people that God is there. Think of Balaam, you know? Also, in I think it's Isaiah, God says that if we dont' praise Him, then even the rocks, trees, etc will rise up and praise Him. I don't remember if He mentions' animals there, but it would make sense to me.
Yes, I do believe that animal's are aware of God, as a Presence and love Him.
What do you think?
No idea. My cat has done some very strange things - she sometimes acts like she sees something in the room - but she's also a loopy cat. Who knows? There are examples of animals in the Bible, like Rachel pointed out, that clearly experienced a visit from God - there were pigs possessed by demons who said, nope, and killed themselves....
Don't know. An intriguing topic to speculate.
I do believe animals can sense the spiritual
I do believe animals can sense the spiritual. I've had experiences where my dog will react to an empty area of the room as if someone is standing there. It's a bit creepy! I also know many people who had similar experiences with their pets. And (like Xenia said) they do sense good/evil in people, for the most part.
I also believe animals have souls.
Franciscan Theology - Animals and trees have souls
Franciscan Theology - Animals and trees have souls
All that is living has a soul, the difference between man and that of the rest of creation is that man has been set over all of creation as it's steward and therefore is the only created creature with the ability to work for the good of all of God's creation. This separation of man from the rest of creation is seen in the profound difference of a spiritual soul that does not act for self, but rather for all of creation. Man has the choice to refuse self and act for Love of God and all of creation.
This does not mean that creation cannot be eternal. God can, if He wills, allow any creature to be eternal. This is an issue or 'theological point' that presently has not been set in dogma or doctrine. If we consider Sacred Scripture we can see that all manner of creatures are used to show God's Nature and Goodness, for example the Holy Spirit descended as a Dove, Jesus repeatedly uses nature to explain His Divine Revelation.
It strikes me that if all of creation reveals something of the Creator then it would be reasonable to consider that that which reveals Him is in some part of Him and nothing can live and move and have being unless it is upheld in Him and therefore may not be brushed aside as dust and forgotten when nature has not fractured the world's relationship with God, but was in fact the fault of man.
We do not pay close enough attention to our duty to the world, but this is hardly surprising when we do not pay close attention to our duty to God and to each other.
When Christ was born slipping into this world in silence and obscurity, He was born in and amongst the animals, those of which represent creation and of course also present rich and poor human witnesses of the Incarnate God. This is a strong indicator that Christ came for the entire world and to redeem all of creation God came as a man 'The Life, the Truth and the Way' to show man how to live and die, to show the path, the way. Through man's co-operation or 'fiat' with the Way it can be considered that united to Christ's Eternal Sacrifice upon the Cross that man becomes co-redeemer and thus as steward of the world partakes in it's redemption also, just as Christ died for men, is the Good Shepherd, is God we too must be the Good Shepherd of creation. We owe creation a great debt, we owe each other a great debt, we owe God a great debt and all these three things must be in place before we can attempt to settle that debt in the Cross of Christ. We must not forget our smaller brothers and sisters.
St Paul states that all of creation groans in labour.
If creation did not partake in this labour, it would not suffer, for the greatest labour is to suffer as this is truly a labour of Love though nature makes no choice in suffering, man has the choice to unite all sufferings to Christ whatever that suffering may be and nowhere is this more clearly seen than Our Lord upon the Blessed Cross.
Sometimes I think the creatures please God better than we humans, every soaring bird a hymn of praise to God and we humans willfully rejecting and refusing to love God and refusing to love each other and take care of all creation that is set in our care.
We must most of all pray for creation aside from actively caring for it. We know Christ multiplied the fish in the sea and filled the Apostles nets, this is of course symbolic of their future evangelism, but also shows that God will recreate over and over again and whatever we ask will be granted if we ask for God's will. Our world need not de-create, but with love and prayer will recreate by God's grace.

Thank you for the write-up about "SOUL" and "who m I"
Hi, I haven't posted often, but want to thank you for the write-up about "SOUL" and "Who m I". I plan to read this out this weekend if my husband is free. He's been a busy man, this may change him once he know who he really is...
A Joyful website !
What a joy to have this website.. . if possible one should make time to read up again and again! I will inform all my friend's and colleague's about this site....wow a wonderful job !!!
Praise the Lord !!!
Good Day, Mr. Sequeira. Actually, I love very much to read whatever that u have send me. It's really great and wonderful. I have read everything and have nothing missed. I appreciate so much Guardian Angel because i have learned a lot and had developed me into a better person. Most of all enhanced my knowledge, ability and skills about my faith, belief and understanding the world where we live now and where to live eternally. Indeed i do missed to send my comments and I'm so sorry for this. Hope u can understand. With all my heart, a million thanks to you. I remained to be your avid reader. Keep up the most precious way of preaching good deeds and the words of God. Praise the Lord !!! And more power to you.
Lovingly yours, Pacita J. Preglo
God is faithful.
Christian greetings. I would like to apolozise for replying your earlier letter without going through your second letter. Somehow I missed it as it was written on two different sub-sites.
You have already experienced the change due to this site. I praise God for it. You say that this site has helped you to learn a lot and also developed you into a better person. Guardian Angel family expects that who ever comes across this website should experience the same. I am happy as a member of this family.
You seems to be a happy person now. God wants that everyone should and for that he gave his only begotten Son to die on the cross. He wants us to repent and come to him for forgiveness of our sins. Man because of his stubbornness and pride fails to come to Jesus and repent and receive forgiveness. God looks at our heart. He searches people with broken heart and contrite spirit.
And with the power of the Holy Spirit He is touching people and changing them instantly.Some days back one girl from hindu background came to know Jesus and she along with her two sisters committed her life to Jesus.Her name is Priyanka.Please read her testimony.It is given on this site.You will be convinced.By being born in christian family one does not become Christian or by taking baptism but only by repenting and accepting Jesus as person saviour.God does not respect religion because religion is not his creation but of man.
Anyway you seems to be a happy person.Please do not forget to commit your life to Jesus.How to commit I have given in my letters.Say that peayer and you will be saved.Do you get my point? When a person repents and committs one's life to Jesus,in return Jesus forgives his or her sins and accepts as His child.He also gives you the gift of the Holy Spirit which helps you in your daily life leading and guiding you in God's way.In II Corinthians 5:17 God says that those who are in Christ is a new creation.One gets new life.The old life changes.Sinful nature goes and Godly nature comes in.This change takes place instantly once you commit your life to Jesus.Thus God is collecting his people from this wreched world and adding them into his kingdom.And this change of life is called " Born Again " in the bible.(Johh 3:3 and 5)
God knew what was in your heart.And He guided you to this site that you may get the right advice and get what you were seeking.Read Psalm 37 verse 4 which says " Delight yourself also in the Lord,and He shall give you the desirs of your heart." He has done his part and now He wants you to do your part.That's what I said.Commit your life to Him(Jesus) and will accept you as his child and bless you by giving new life.He will also bless you with heavenly peace.(John 14:27) He will be too happy to give you joy,love,kindness,goodness,faithfulness,gentleness without limit.Your heart will overflow with love.So much so that you will love others.You will find great change in you.And to experience such change one has to do it,so that God can work out one's future.Bye.
God is faithful.......continued.
Man's heart is most deceitful. So also it is dirty and contaminated. Who is responsible for it? The answer is Adam our first earthly father. And for that we all are sinners. Bible says that wages of sin is death. Death means going to hell. So all the sinners are destined to go to hell. But God in his compassion and love for mankind has made provision for man not to go to hell but instead to go to heaven. There is one condition that every sinner must repent and come back to God and accept His Son Jesus Christ as his saviour. The penalty for the sin which was to be paid by every sinner was paid by Jesus when he died on the cross. Because without shedding blood there is no remission.Jesus shed his blood on the cross.And for that every sinner is obligated to Jesus for shedding his blood. God wants every sinner to express that obligation by accepting Jesus as a savior. God planned this arrangement for the sake of His love for mankind. And this the way God chooses us and leads us to Jesus.And once a sinner comes to Jesus and commits his life to him, in return Jesus gives his eternal life to the sinner.He sets him free. Once the sinner who was under condemnation but now he is freed from that and placed in the kingdom of God. No more sacrifice no more shedding blood but enjoy fellowship with God and God's people. Hallelujah.
Dear Pecita did you get my point? So my request to you is that you should commit your life to Jesus.And for that small prayer is required. I have given that prayer in my first letter. Please read and say it when you are alone.Rest you leave it to Jesus.He will see that you are not only happy but enjoy your life fully.Once you become His child it is his bounded duty to answer your every prayer. He will fill your heart with peace, love, joy, kindness, goodness. I hope you have understood my message. Do it and be happy. Hallelujah. Bye.
