soul = the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being
that is regarded by many as immortal
The dictionary says a soul could also be
A person’s emotional nature
A person’s moral nature
A person’s sense of identity
The essence of something
I vote for the last definition because to me my soul is my human animal. It’s my essence. It’s the fountain which supports my floating-bubble-like existence at its top. Without it I would be no more. I would wink out of existence because that dead human animal was my creator and total support.
Of course, if a religion teaches all of its God’s magical powers are real and if this turns out to be true, then a magical God would have to begin supporting my existence so it could torture me forever or reward me forever. What are the odds of that happening?
spiritual = having to do with religion or religious beliefs (dictionary definition)
spiritual = having to do with feelings like gratitude, graciousness, and love and there are other attitudes that can yield spiritual feelings like giving or receiving justice and giving or receiving freedom. I vote for this definition.
immaterial = something beyond physical
Am I a special dream of my wonderful craft? A dream which allows my human animal (what I feel is my soul) to sail along easily in whatever society into which it is born?
