The circumscribed spirit of God encapsulated in creatures. The individualised spirit is called ‘soul’. The soul has consciousness and will, so also has the spirit. The soul is conscious only of what happens to it as an individual. Spirit is conscious of all that happens to all souls and to itself. The knowledge of the soul is finite, the knowledge of spirit is infinite. In the centre of the soul is a point where Spirit meets it. At this point a “dialogue” takes place between the soul and spirit. Soul states what is its individual will, and Spirit states Its universal will. The soul may then will its own individual will or it may will to the same purpose as the universal.
