The common fallacy is that we have a physical body and soul lies within this body. This is what we have been taught from childhood. However the fact is that soul is immortal from this life to next life. Soul desires to have some experiences and manifests physical body to have human experience on this earth with definite life purpose in this temporary journey. We are spirit first. We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings connected with God or light but we have forgotten our roots forgetting our life purpose. Follow your heart and intuition to find your life purpose which would give you immense satisfaction and joy in this world giving you a life of abundance. The soul carries the life experiences of this incarnation to the next reincarnation changing physical body evolving into a better soul rich from the previous life experience.
~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
