Re: The soul and the body - two separate beings?
what about the ideas of Sokrates and Plato that we (human beeings) do not posess soul but actually "are" soul?
I remember when I was a child, I tried to imagine what that "soul" is. I was taught a picture, that when I die, I will lay down and be burried, and "my soul" is going up somewhere else.
That was the old picture.
Later I learned that when I die, I (soul) will go up to the invisible worlds (or inner worlds or heaven or however one willl name it), and my body is laying down and will be burried.
By changing this picture, this understanding, something was different from than on.
It responds to the words "man was made soul" .
I am soul. I have a body - not the other way round
Soul exists because God loves it.
What do you think about that? Does it sound strange or does it sound understandable?
(I hope, my English is correct enough to be understood by native speakers)
