Who Are You, and Why Are You Here?
By Harold Klemp
Q: What is Soul, and why are we here?
A: Soul just is. It is the creative center of Its own world.
We know that Soul exists by the evidence of life around us. When Soul inhabits a body, that body lives, moves, and has being. When Soul leaves, the body no longer lives, moves, or has being. What has left? By direct or indirect evidence, we know that some unseen force gives life to a physical body.
What is that something? Soul, of course.
Opinions about Soul outnumber people’s opinions about politics. People who know—actually know, not just believe—that Soul outlives death enjoy happy, creative lives. The rest are miserable and afraid.
People who fear hell fall for the trap that Soul can be burned by fire. That’s really sad. Soul exists because God loves It. Its destiny is to become a Co-worker with God.
Plato told of the separation of Soul from the body. The old Greek mystery schools taught their students that Soul could reach the altar of God through certain secret methods. The students spent a few minutes a day with unique contemplative exercises that opened them little by little to the Light and Sound of God. That gave them unshakable proof that Soul lives forever.
The most important point of all is that you are Soul. Know that you are a spark of God and can exist fully only within the realization of that profound truth. As such, you are a light and inspiration to others.
