Soul can function as a synonym for spirit, mind, psyche or self. Yol religion can characterize soul using the following sentences (read small text at the end of the post from Creator of Yol):
Soul is a human’s consciousness that extends far beyond the physical body.
Soul is the cause of intuition and “unconscious mind”.
Soul has features and characteristics that exceed those of a human’s mind.
Soul has an energy that has something in common with electricity.
Soul emerges and develops to a degree.
Soul is not everlasting.
Soul can not reincarnate.
All organisms have souls.
Existence of soul conforms to Laws of Nature awaiting discovery.
Quotes about Soul
Everywhere and always, since its very inception, Christianity has turned the earth into a vale of tears; always it has made of life a weak, diseased thing, always it has instilled fear in man, turning him into a dual being, whose life energies are spent in the struggle between body and soul. In decrying the body as something evil, the flesh as the tempter to everything that is sinful, man has mutilated his being in the vain attempt to keep his soul pure, while his body rotted away from the injuries and tortures inflicted upon it.
EMMA GOLDMAN, Mother Earth, April 1913
What is soul? It’s like electricity – we don’t really know what it is, but it’s a force that can light a room.
Ambition is a Dead Sea fruit, and the greatest peril to the soul is that one is likely to get precisely what he is seeking.
EDWARD DAHLBERG, Alms for Oblivion
The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach.
CARL JUNG, The Meaning of Psychology for Modern Man
Imagination is the eye of the soul.
JOSEPH JOUBERT, Pensées
Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.
Soul. The word rebounded to me, and I wondered, as I often had, what it was exactly. People talked about it all the time, but did anybody actually know? Sometimes I’d pictured it like a pilot light burning inside a person–a drop of fire from the invisible inferno people called God. Or a squashy substance, like a piece of clay or dental mold, which collected the sum of a person’s experiences–a million indentations of happiness, desperation, fear, all the small piercings of beauty we’ve ever known.
SUE MONK KIDD, The Mermaid Chair
Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them. Some minds are incapable of skepticism.
RALPH WALDO EMERSON, “Montaigne; or, the Skeptic,” Representative Men
Negativity is an addiction to the bleak shadow that lingers around every human form … you can transfigure negativity by turning it toward the light of your soul.
JOHN O’DONOHUE, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
Emotions are the colors of the soul.
WM. PAUL YOUNG, The Shack
The soul is healed by being with children.
FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Idiot
There are apartments in the soul which have a glorious outlook; from whose windows you can see across the river of death, and into the shining city beyond; but how often are these neglected for the lower ones, which have earthward-looking windows.
HENRY WARD BEECHER, Life Thoughts
For all good and evil, whether in the body or in human nature, originates … in the soul, and overflows from thence, as from the head into the eyes.
The human soul is God’s treasury, out of which he coins unspeakable riches.
HENRY WARD BEECHER, Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit
Music, sculpture, poetry, painting–these are glorious works; but the soul that creates them is more glorious than they. The music shall die on the passing wind, the poem may be lost in the confusion of tongues, the marble will crumble and the canvas will fade, while the soul shall be quenchless and strong, filled with a nobler melody, kindling with loftier themes, projecting images of unearthly beauty, and drinking from springs of imperishable life.
E. H. CHAPIN, Living Words
You don’t believe in the soul until you feel it straining to escape the body.
GLEN DUNCAN, A Day and a Night and a Day
Good men study to spiritualize their bodies; bad men to incarnate their souls.
BENJAMIN WHICHCOTE, Moral and Religious Aphorisms
The blackest murder is the killing of the Soul’s aspirations!
EDWIN LEIBFREED, “The Song of the Soul”
The soul’s vitality after death is proportionate to its vitality before death.
AUSTIN O’MALLEY, Keystones of Thought
The soul, like the body, acquires vigor by the exercise of all its faculties. In the midst of the world, in overcoming difficulties, in conquering selfishness, indolence, and fear–in all the occasions of duty, it employs, and reveals by employing, energies that render it efficient and robust–that broaden its scope, adjust its powers, and mature it with a rich experience.
E. H. CHAPIN, Living Words
There may be a soul of the world, there may be … a psychical side, of which we are not aware, to every atom in the universe, and the psychical side, like the moon, may show us ever but the one face, the other forever in the shadow; but, at best, this is only a conjecture, it presents no solid foundation upon which to rest a theory.
JOHN GRIER HIBBEN, The Problems of Philosophy
The soul can never be corrupted with the corruption of the body, but it is like the wind which causes the sound of the organ, and which ceases to produce a good effect when a pipe is spoilt.
LEONARDO DA VINCI, Thoughts on Art and Life
He who possesses the divine powers of the soul is a great being, be his place what it may. You may clothe him with rags, may immure him in a dungeon, may chain him to slavish tasks; but he is still great. You may shut him out of your houses; but God opens to him heavenly mansions.
WILLIAM E. CHANNING, Thoughts
Only by much searching and mining, are gold and diamonds obtained, and man can find every truth connected with his being, if he will dig deep into the mine of his soul.
JAMES ALLEN, As a Man Thinketh
My mind is incapable of conceiving such a thing as a soul. I may be in error, and man may have a soul; but I simply do not believe it. What a soul may be is beyond my understanding.
THOMAS EDISON, “Do We Live Again?”, The Illustrated London News, May 3, 1924
Why do you hasten to remove anything which hurts your eye, while if something affects your soul you postpone the cure until next year?
Let us duly learn to prize and value our Souls: Is the body such a valuable piece, what then is the Soul? The body is but a husk of shell, the Soul is the kernel; the body is but the cask, the Soul is the precious liquor contained in it; the body is but the cabinet, the Soul is the jewel; the body is but the dwelling, the Soul the inhabitant.
WELLINS CALCOTT, Thoughts Moral and Divine
Say not, “I have found the truth,” but rather, “I have found a truth.” Say not, “I have found the path of the soul.” Say rather, “I have met the soul walking upon my path.” For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line, neither does it grow like a reed. The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.
Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet, 1923
I was thrown out of college for cheating on the metaphysics exam: I looked into the soul of another boy.
From Shaheen Hajigil, creator of Yol:
Dear follower or reader. Do you agree or disagree with quotes aboul Soul? In Yol religion I say to my followers that all souls or many souls connected to each other make one god. I don’t call it universal soul as I don’t have any message from god about it’s (universal Soul) existence.
Universal god is also outside of my message. There is infinite number of universes in the limitless Cosmos. There is infinite number of populated planets. Each one of the planets have it’s own god- god that consists of many souls connected to each other (only type of god recognised in Yol religion) . Two populated planets can be very close to each other. If their intelligent dwellers can visit each other and have created a community then they may have their two separate gods (sets of multiple souls) fused into one larger and communicating soul connection.
Other than this method Yol religion doesn’t know how two sides may join each other without first communicating and exchanging information using conscious mind.
Thank you for reading Yol’s view about souls and other soul quotes.
Don’t forget to COMMENT and SHARE with your soulmates.
