Misunderstood by everyone, who can not see all things as one".

The Nature Of Soul.

Everybody knows what the soul is.
Don't they?

Computers, designed by humans, contain memory, prone to errors.
There are seven useful "bits" in a memory module.
And one dedicated "check bit".
This "bit", The Eighth Bit, exists solely to check the functioning of the other seven.
It can tell if what it is checking is right, or wrong.
In computer language, this equates to a One or a Zero.
It is pure logic: Good, Bad, Right, Wrong, Correct, Incorrect...

I once bought a hand-held calculator that could not add up.
Every answer it gave was wrong.
I returned it to the store, where I was grudgingly given a new one.
Which could not add up either.
It turned out that none of these particular calculators could add up.

The salesperson was irritated at me.
He said there was nothing he could do, and who cared anyway?
It was only a calculator.
I bought a different one that could add up, and he returned the ones that could not, back to the shelf, to be bought by other people.
And clearly, he was not a bit worried by knowingly sowing chaos throughout the land.

Each of us has a "Check Bit".
The Eighth Bit that serves to show what is right, or not, good, or not...
Eight is a curious number in itself.
The symbol of infinity.
The chakra that spans the distance between the physical and the spiritual.

This Eighth Bit, is the Soul.
It checks for healthy functioning, and clarity of purpose.
It discriminates between logic and nonsense.
It knows what is right and what is not.

Your Soul is that part of you that God created in his image.
Nobody can take your Soul from you.
But you are able to sell it; even give it away.
To cut oneself off from the divine,
is to cease to make any sense, or to have any purpose.

The Soul is what gives purpose.
When you have purpose, you do not wonder what your purpose is.

Know what you are, lest you forever forget.
