Questions and answers on the soul Part I
Question: Is the soul always with the person during his lifetime, or can it leave him temporarily, even making its home elsewhere?
Question: During sleep, does the person's soul make journeys?
Question: Can a person's body and consciousness so change during his lifetime that he becomes fit for a finer soul to enter him?
Question: When we think another's thoughts, we let ourselves 'tune-in' to his 'psychic' agitations. However, if we 'tune-in' to one whom we believe to be grounded in the source of his being, his soul, would this be a valid practice, at least until one's own spiritual unfolding developed?
Question: How does one know if his soul is happy?
Question: Are there two sets of instructions within the person, one from his deepest nature which includes and unfolds all in goodness and compassion — and the other, which is clever about 'me' and 'mine'?
Question: Can the soul be equally represented in dreams either by an old woman, wrinkled and wise, as well as by a young baby babbling a new language?
Question: Is the soul both male and female?
Question: Does the soul get new instruction in its development, or does it merely uncover what it has always known?
Question: Is it the soul that must surrender to the Cosmic Self?
Question: The individual soul limits itself in time and space by taking on a body — but the Self (Param Atman) is outside of time and space; one who has the vision of the Self sees totally the creation and the Beyond. Is this correct?
Question: Is it the soul that makes the decision in selecting a new body in each incarnation?
Question: Does the soul experience loneliness? If so, how does this differ from the superficial need to have the company of others, whether we like them or not, but simply because we want someone to talk to?
Question: Does the soul make demands on a person so that he has to change his ways?
