Intangible Force

Throughout the history of mankind someone, somewhere at sometime has been trying to crush the Human Spirit. However history also shows us that the greater the oppression the greater the resolve and the stronger the foundation becomes. The light may dim and the flame may flicker a bit, but the Human Spirit can never be extinguished.

Simple things like desire, belief and curiosity are but a small part of the Human Spirit. It is within the Human Spirit where our talents, gifts, dreams, our goals and inspirations reside. Even if it is unknown to us at the time, it is our life's purpose.

The Human Spirit is the fundamental yet complex life force that can never be snuffed out. The Human Spirit endures our faults our joys as well as our memories.
Is the Human Spirit the Soul? The lines one might say, are blurred. Certainly The Human Spirit and the Soul occupy space within the same realm. But one and the same?. . . I do not know.
Albeit intangible, The Human Spirit is our essential nature and the sense of our own significance.The underlying strength of the Human Spirit is our basic instinct to survive, our will to survive.
And despite seemingly insurmountable odds the Human Spirit is what moves us and challenges us to achieve, even if it takes generations.
The Human Spirit Lives!


  1. Hi Edward. Very good post. There is a way to know whether or not the soul and the Spirit are the same.

    "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account." Hebrews 4:12, 13.

    Don't mind the "shameful plug". That's what you have to do when you first get started. You may think about joining Facebook and Twitter. Then send out notices to your friends. You can also follow people (on both sites) and that'll get you more visitors. :)

  2. You're quite welcome. We all started somewhere. :)
