The Soul is a fractal of the Source (of all that is).
The purpose of Soul is having many experiences and feeding them back to Source before returning to Source.
Soul gathers these many experiences through the human body. So how does that work?
From the earliest conceptions of the mind, we begin to construct stories based upon our experiences and what our conditioning would have us believe. All the while, the soul waits patiently for the right time to course-correct and gently (or sometimes abruptly) steer us back towards it’s intended path.
