What Is The Soul (continued from last three weeks)
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 two features are Confidence and Honesty.
This week, the third feature: Innocence
Innocence is based on the profound awareness that our soul is purely perfect. In other words, flawless. There is nothing we can do that can damage our soul. Nothing.
