Having misunderstood soul in this fashion (just as we often misunderstand God) we become disappointed when we cannot find it and dismiss it an illusion, another fraud perpetrated by religion. But soul is not a thing; it is a dimension of depth in a thing. Like justness in a judge's decision, or beauty in a painting, soul is a quality of absoluteness in something relative ...understood profoundly, people are connected to the holiness of the world in such a way that they reveal a dimension of holiness in themselves, a dimension of depth that is absolute.
