In my view, our soul is much bigger than our physical form. It is not contained within the dimensions of our body. More likely, our body is to our soul, what a finger puppet is to our body. It’s only a small representation or expression of a much bigger entity.
I imagine our soul as a wave emerging from an ocean, and our bodies as mere droplets off the wave. Our bodies are separate only as the force of the wave bursts forward, birthing a beautifully formed, unique, contained sphere, experiencing momentary independence from it’s source. An illusion to be sure as it contains all the DNA and wisdom of all the ocean, before dropping back towards the wave, which has already begun to merge with the ocean, ready to begin the cycle again as a life-force re-imagined.
