What Is The Soul

Dr. Guterson: you talk a lot about the soul. Maybe you can help me understand what the soul is? A: G-d blew His essence into Man. His essence is our essence. And so, when we are truly in touch with our soul, we operate on an entirely different level. In a talk I studied from Rabbi YY Jacobson, he explains that there are six essential features of the soul. The first feature is: Confidence. This week, the second feature: Honesty Honesty is closely linked to what we talked about last week, Confidence. Why do people lie? Why are they not honest?Most people lie because they are afraid that if they told the truth, if they allowed themselves to be vulnerable, that others will think less of them. Such persons live in a constant whirlwind of fear, fear of exposure. Needing to constantly protect themselves, they cover up. And one cover up usually evolves into more cover ups. Your soul never lies. It is pure and good, the essence of who you truly are. When two people who are in touch with their soul get together, they can be honest and vulnerable with no fear of being judged. In my psychiatric work, I have seen time and time again the beauty, the love, and the acceptance, when one btreaks through their cover ups and shares of them self to someone who truly loves them. There is no reason to spend one’s life hiding behind a shell. The soul never lies. To be continued……
