Collectively, we view the Soul in a very materialistic way, but the Soul is not the Ego.
Enter the Mystical Eternal Silence, the space between your eyes, and listen to your Soul.
Mysticism is derived from the Greek, meaning what is concealed. Mystical experiences are usually silent and incomprehensible. Mysticism is shutting the eyes, but opening the third eye, and shutting the mouth to experience the spiritual mystery within and without. Mysticism is a direct contact to an inspiring spiritual mystery.
Soul Mates and the Deepest Most Profound Eternal Love are connections to the direct experience of your Soul. Therefore, you are holding the image of God right before you.

God is in You, it is not something that happened somewhere else a long time ago. -Joseph Campbell

"Your Soul must teach your Ego to appreciate what is Holy and Godly."-Rabbi Friedman
In Gnosticism, Sophia is comparable to the soul and resides in all humans as the Divine Spark.

Praying from the Soul...
It is therefore fitting to pray with all our soul - not externally with the lips, but with the spirit, which is inward, which came forth from the depth.- Gnostic gospel, The Exegesis of the Soul.
Erich Neumann recognized the task of remembrance as an awakening to call of the exiled Shekhinah.
In the Kabbalah, when you are in touch with the Shekhinah within you, you are entering the dwelling place of a divine presence...
The awakening of the soul feels as if you have just arrived at a temple. You have been given access to the Divine. As you enter the room where the holy of holies resides, you can sense the spark of the Almighty deep within you.
"God is in each and every one of us. Something was growing inside me without me realizing what that was."-Chris Antley
Though God is everywhere present, yet is only present to thee in the deepest and most central part of thy soul. The natural senses cannot possess God or unite thee to God.-William Law

"The Soul is a real entity in terms of Quantum information, embedded in the fundamental level of the universe."-Dr. Stuart Hameroff
If the human soul is anything, it must be of unimaginable complexity and diversity… I can only gaze with wonder and awe at the depths and heights of our psychic nature. Its non-spatial universe conceals an untold abundance of images which have accumulated over millions of years of living development and become fixed in the organism. My consciousness is like an eye that penetrates to the most distant spaces, yet it is the psychic non-ego that fills them with non-spatial images. And these images are not pale shadows, but tremendously powerful psychic factors… Beside this picture I would like to place the spectacle of the starry heavens at night, for the only equivalent of the universe within is the universe without; and just as I reach this world through the medium of the body, so I reach that world through the medium of soul. (as cited in Memories, Dreams and Reflections- Jung, 1989, p. 387)
Psychologist Frances Vaughan states, The Soul… is an androgynous subtle body existing in the imaginal realm,” mediating “…between Formless Spirit and Material Substance.
“Sometimes Some People Feel Imaginary.”-Chris Antley
Krishna said, "There is no time where we didn't exist, and there will be no time where we don't exist."- The only thing that changes is the body. Our soul will stay in our astral body. -George Harrison
The inner self is what we think of as the mind [Ego]. But the inner self is also our spiritual nature, the part of us that connects to the Divine- in short, our soul.- Swedenborg Foundation.
The soul is the real person because it is the deepest self. It is a near by vessel for God. Therefore, it is a dwelling place for God. -Emanuel Swedenborg.
In order to get in touch with your soul, you must quiet your conscious mind (ego).
1) Do you meditate?
2) Do you pay attention to your dreams?
3) Listen, Sense, and See beyond your five senses!
4) The mind has to open to the space beyond thought.
5) The Soul is expressed thru the ego by the emotion of joy!
"When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy."-Rumi
Quiet your conscious ego mind and you will get in touch with your soul!
Manifestation- the action or fact showing an abstract idea...
"The Sanskrit spelling of OM-O is AU-M. Your life is AUM, but there is a silence that underlies it. And that is what we would call the immortal. The AUM is the mortal, and the silence is the immortal. There wouldn't be this, if there wasn't that. That absolute, unqualified, unconditioned state-that-is-no state of "consciousness in itself." -Joseph Campbell
My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that, and I intend to end up there.-Rumi
Life is true, life is real and death is not its goal. From dust you are to dust returneth, was never said about the soul.-Anonymous
i“A single principle links together the great Upanishads and their diverse parts, like jewels strung on a golden thread: the oneness of the Soul and the Oversoul. When we have found the Soul, our inmost real Self, we have thereby found the Oversoul, the Supreme Self of all Being. This is the goal.”—Charles Johnston
