Soul is the emanation of all things beautiful and holy about the universe. It is the essence behind all the harmony and exquisiteness of what we experience through our spiritual senses.
Spirit is the energy behind the Soul. It is the driving force that impels attraction and creativity to be expressed through Soul. When Spirit is unselfishly and fervently invoked, qualities of Soul shine forth as a result.
The combination of Soul and Spirit is what we feel when we hear a great masterpiece, such as Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis. He was already deaf when he composed it but was open to divine inspiration. He was a vessel for the complex beauty of the structure of All That Is. Therefore, he allowed the Spirit to move him and became a witness and transcriber of Soul.
Another example is any of the great spiritual teachers whose generous Souls brought them to share their wisdom and comfort with others. They channel the Spirit and express it uniquely and perfectly, being a witness to the ever presence of Soul and its everlasting beauty.
