Question For Spiritual People: What Is A Soul? What Is Life?

I'm going about EP and asking different faiths how they define the words "soul" and "life". I also decided to ask non-religious people such as "spiritual but religious, agnostic, and atheist" people. I tried asking it in the questions section of EP, but it allowed for little interaction unless I took the conversation into private messages. Plus, people had to find my questions first. :P

Anyway, I'm keeping the question vague so you can answer in any way that you see fit. Like I said, I'm asking for answers from different perspectives, including that of your faith, so use whatever religious texts or other evidences that you see fit...At least, that's what I'd say if you were religious. :P Still, use whatever proof you'd like. Expect to hear from me after you respond, because I probably WILL have questions! Thanks in advance!

Soul is what makes you uniquely you!<br />
Life is what makes you come alive!<br />
all dressed up in your body.<br />

And you are right, that our soul is being misguided. All sorts of things are more important then our souls value. We look at all the wrong places for happiness. We even try to buy it!<br />
The only place you can find happyness, is inside you, in your heart. At night you shall get answers to your questions. But if you are drunk or drugged or medicated, you will not hear or dream.<br />
Free yourself from modern day waste and experience your spirituality. Listen to your guides, (yes we all have them), Fitting in with nature. using less and less gadgets, live simple and enjoy and protect what is free out there.

Wow...grim.
