Question: Shamati Article 94 refers to the beastly and spiritual soul of man. What is the difference between them and how can a person harm his spiritual or beastly soul?
Answer: We cannot harm either the beastly or the spiritual soul until we acquire this soul.
The beastly soul is what we have now, like any animal. On the corporeal level, we must properly communicate with each other, be in the right human community. This is called the beastly soul.
The spiritual soul must first be revealed. It needs to be built, i.e., you need to feel the need for it and attract the upper light, which will restore it and create a good connection between us. Then we can already interact with each other.
In the meantime, no one has a real soul. The soul is either a common bond between us, or, as it is said: “We are all like beasts.”
