Speaking to the Soul: What Is Wholeness?

I don’t think of wholeness as having an end or being a specific destination for which we are all striving, but rather wholeness is the journey of this life.

Six facets of spiritual thriving

In time, I realized that thinking of the human spirit as the eternal soul poses a similar unsolvable puzzle This approach also requires explaining how, and perhaps when, ensoulment occurs, i.e., how and when a human acquires her/his soul or spirit. Furthermore, this approach creates problems of body-spirit dualism with which theologians, philosophers, and scientists have wrestled unsuccessfully since Descartes. Finally, it’s far from certain that the Christian Scriptures unambiguously support belief in an eternal soul.
