And Soul is our true self, as you said a manifestation of Spirit.
Spiritual Beings and the Human Experience | Matt Townsend
Soul speak with emotions, feeling, sensations, and not words as do mind. I see basically three different explaination for consciousness, but none of this compare to Soul. Religions said that is human consciousness. Some other philosofy said that is universal consciousness What you call Spirit.
It can also mean a system of moral values of a person, which allows it to approve or disapprove their acts. Plus I think that consciousness is sum of all our past lives.

Sensations come from the physical bodies sensory receptors. Emotions and feelings are the closely connected to the mind. You see, what we like, dislike, love, hate, get jealous about all have to do with our mental experiences. The traumas you have, the beliefs you hold a person who believes themselves to be Christian will get angry if you insult their beliefs , the food you like, even the people you are attracted to are all connected to your mental experiences, the social conditioning of your upbringing.
The Soul is not responsible for their creation. The Soul instead is the space in which these emotions, feelings, thoughts and senses arise in. Pure Consciousness is free from all knowledge, morals, values and ideas all that is of the mind, because they are all taught to us, we are not born with them but we are born with pure consciousness. This is why I prefer using the word Soul as opposed to Consciousness.
Your analogy does sound pretty close to my experience, the only difference being that unlike material data of a computer, human consciousness is a fluid and living energy which means the data information in this case is stored in the energy itself that is feeding the computer Soul. Thank you for your comprehensive answer. I really appreciate your patience in answering. Always keeping in mind the limits of language: words are only indications and not the truth the finger is not the moon that indicates.
First of all I would like to disassociate myself from any religious point of view, even though I was born in Christian family, today I do not follow any religious movement. About emotions, there are two base from which flow all the others: love and fear. I agree with you, the soul is not responsible for the suffering created by the mind.

Eckhart Tolle has written an entire book on the subject of the ego, one of the best I know. If you do one thing think, say or do , it should always be accompanied by a sense of love, and not driven by negative feelings such as fear, which then generates hatred, resentment, etc. Only when it is accompanied by love, you know for sure that is not the ego mind behind. I compare consciousness with computer data, because if it is true as everyone says that we are here to gain experience and acquire lessons, then this knowledge, this wealth of experience, where is it?
Is not the expansion of consciousness? I understand that is a topic discussed for a long time, and that there are many explanations as many people who have philosophize about. While carrying obvious merit, such teachings do not necessarily apply readily and absolutely for Westerners, in part due to the Eastern emphasis on depersonalizing. We need a much more catharthic approach.
I can only speak from my own taste of this, but I feel the lessons of consciousness are left behind in a layer of information that stays in this realm when our Spirits return back to their source. The best approach to all this is to experience it more so than try to understand it mentally. The less we label it the better, ironically, it is necessary to label it at the beginning to speaking the language of the mind others live in, and attract them to your message. I would love to meet you and other of our readers some day, Switzerland is definitely on my list of countries to visit next.
Thanks for your reply Mateo. And thanks for give your info about Eckart Tolle. Although I enjoy reading 2 of him books, I heard several other criticisms against him there are several blog post or forum post who speak bad about him. However you are saying that he does not have the merit of any idea behind what he says, but it took everything from Buddhism.
What I like in this modern spiritual masters is that they use a modern language to explain something written time ago; plus they try to put in relation modern world with this old philosofy. For example I have the book Tao Te Ching but is very hard to understand, especially if you are at the begging.

Even if this masters take their ideas from somewhere else, then they should also feel this in real life; otherwise is very hard to explain with your words: you need first of all understand and be able to put in practice as everything else. Switzerland is nice country, but Australia I think you are there is much better ; If you come here Lugano then come to visit me. However, many of the students that have come to me have done so from other of these masters. That however is not really so much the problem as is what happens after. We are just as much spiritual as we are ego-based beings, ignoring the maturation of one side of ourselves by exercising the other will bring troubles.
He has become the biggest sign post, the longest finger for everyone to see which is wonderful.
But his advice can only do that, make you aware there is a moon. To be able to teach people to transition from the finger to the moon requires a whole different set of tools. Some people will find comfort and richness in their words, but I feel others with the modern mind that is much different from the mind of thousands of years ago will struggle with these amazing teachings.
