The Soul can become addicted to the body and fall into the illusion of the mind/ego's sense of self and forget its actual true, eternal Self.
How does one discriminate between what is from the Soul and what is from the mind/ego?
From the practice of vigilant observation. The mind/ego operates in the realm of time and space. The Soul realm is timelessness. Commonly, if a thought requires some time, it's from the mind/ego and what's the first thing to pop up out from what appears to be nowhere is usually a message from the Soul. The Soul communicates through images, vibrations, feelings, dreams, and an inner knowing and not so much through the use of words such as with the mind/ego. The mind/ego uses thoughts based upon past experiences and knowledge (elements of time) and the Soul uses intuition which is a living, dynamic process of guiding the Individual. With vigilant observation, one develops discriminative intelligence and there is no longer a painting separated from what is painted. There simply is what Is.....
