Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Psyche vs Soul

Over time, many people have communicated to me "I feel it in my Soul", which sounds dramatic but when asked, they really don't know what a soul is!
In the forefront of this understanding,  Psyche was a Greek "female Soul" and/or Goddess corresponding to the Hindu Shakti. The Greek classical myth, wedded Psyche to the love-god Eros; Eros being "the Flesh: (Eros is also the root word for Erotica), means that this was the first marriage of soul and flesh, this also points out that your "soul mate" is your body!
 The Greek Apuleius, stated that Psyche and Eros could come together only in the dark. Naturally, Psyche insisted upon seeing  Eros in the light of her lamp, which violated the rules, so he had to leave her forever. The obvious allegory here, is that the passion of the Soul might banishes the sexual Passion of the body.[ This is contrary to the Tantra belief that both are combined in mutual love, to establish Ecstasy. I found this to be true.]
To the ancient Greeks, Psyche was incarnate as a butterfly, for this image went along with the early Greek belief that flying insects carried souls while passing from one life to the next, much like Psychopomp  (The Hermit Card of Thoth Deck Tarot) "the conductor of Souls".  In these myths, the soul can be confused with the Personality. Granted, the personality is a product of the Soul, but in itself, it is just software that is necessary to operated the hardware we call our physical bodies.
The Soul is our Whole Self, Psyche, rather than a personal software program. The Soul, is the Mirror that reflects our bodies, and the conductor of our personalities. In fact, the Soul is the software tech and the "librarian" of the personalities that it experiments with as a "lifetime". You may have heard of this library, as the Akasha and/or Akashic records, a term coined by Theosophy. The Word Akasha seems to have roots in the name of the ancient goddess Akka (of Akkad) who was known as the Old Woman, or Grandmother and who was known as the "Water drawer". You will find a similar image as the Star Card of Tarot.  The Alchemical "Water", being the Ethereal- flowing- Element the Soul is constructed from.
This story of the Soul is a long one so I'll just get to the point; it is not "your soul" but rather it is you who belongs to the Soul. You are the Soul's mirror image!  In Qabalah, the Soul is known as a Being, a term that depicts an infinite intelligent Force. The body human is an entity, which in quantum physics, means " a point in time". Knowing this we can see that the personality only lasts as long as your soul is willing to run the software,  This is also why that name changing is part of the Gnostic Mysteries, for as we voluntarily achieve initiations in perspective growth, our personalities begin acting like "artificial intelligence" and begin rethinking their "self identity" while divorcing themselves from the common identity indoctrination of their society. The term "common indoctrination" just means "domesticated personalities" that no longer can see themselves as "love" and think they must seek it, thus being unable able to listen to their Soul's guidance which is transmitted on the frequency of "self love".
 If you read the Myth of Psyche and Eros, you'll understand their communion and thus communication is the Passion of Love. The Soul , the body and the Personality  are a marriage trinity bonded by Love. When your indoctrination is enslavement to fear. such as the flesh-0-phobic indoctrination produced by terms such as "the Spirit is strong, but the flesh is weak". This is a fear based concept designed by "pleasure pain training" for the purpose of "divide and conquer" .Your personality is no longer yours simply by dividing its perspective form that of your Soul; the personality is "veiled" from the Soul. It may be better said, "The Spirit is Will and the body is Willed as loving Self-expression." Self Awareness is Self reflection. Being the Self Reflection of the Psyche that create Me, is an honor that I, as a personality can never besmirch. There is yet another bonus, besides being alive. The Aware personality also gains from Soul Union, all the knowledge of previous personal-experiments as "selves" that have been stored in the Soul-software library. These past incarnated personalities flow through the manifesting personality who "knows itself" and receives the "insight from more than itself" when that knowledge is needed. The personality becomes vast and active rather than belittled and reactive! More like the Immortal-Soul it reflects, rather than the fear filled witless sycophant and pusillanimous invertebrate  that rulers demand.
Thank you for your interest and comments, May you live long and prosper!
