Soul or Spirit? Hi: Please answer this question for me. What is the difference between Soul and Spirit? I think that the human soul is the human body itself, the Spirit is what goes to Our G--d when the body dies. Do you believe that the human being is body, soul and spirit, three in one; just what most people believe. My wife think that when a person dies, the spirit return to G--d and the body to the tomb and soul goes to another place. What are your comments? I don't believe in a trinity, 'three in one" like many people think and neither think that a person is composed of body, soul, and spirit. I believe a person is body and spirit. Thank you. Reply

The words you use For example, when you describe the "pain" of the soul - what does that mean? There is no physical pain in that dimention. There is no physical "feeling" - or else you are measuring by the on-earth bodily responses. They are no longer applicable and the semantics we use to describe them are inadequate because - in fact - we just aren't "knowing" enough to know that our verbal descriptions are accurate. Reply

We can't know as living beings how pain is sensed after we die
But doing as many mitzvot as one can is as an "insurance policy"
So if you want to be on the safe side multiply your mitzvot. But do not forget that they must be done with innocent intentions, kavanna Tmima. Reply

RE: Torah I would suggest that you check out the books of the kabbalists like the AriZal. Perhaps Sefer Hagilgulim. Reply

LFIE AFTER DEATH Does this all apply to only Jewish souls, or everyone regardless of religion? I believe the Rabbi is very accurate in his description of what happens to humans after they die. It is a warning that more people who know about. Maybe the world would be a better place if people thought about what will happen after they die. Reply

the soul I believe this is absolutely true. It is in our hands as to how we be after this life. Pity the poor souls that if better educated could have changed their fate. Reply
