My understanding of the soul is that it is consciousness. It is that part of us that thinks and feels and understands. Consciousness is the part of us that calculates and analyzes everything. “Consciousness is regarded to comprise qualities such as subjectivity, selfawareness, sentience, and the ability to perceive the relationship between oneself and one's environment. It is a subject of much research in philosophy of mind, psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science.” - http://en.wikipedia.org/ The true question for this article is: What is an ancient soul? An ancient soul is not necessarily a soul that has lived on earth time and time again. It is a deep understanding of life and the relationship between yourself and the environment. The soul that understands cause and affect, life and love, connectivity and consciousness defines an ancient soul. If it is true that we live over and over again on earth, weather by choice or by force, it is a matter of understanding. Most times, people associate old soul or ancient souls with reincarnation. That is not necessarily true. My belief is that the subconscious has a deep rooted connection to the universal nature of everything. The communication between the conscious and the subconscious is the key to the ancient understanding of everything. In order to have an “old soul” or “ancient mentality”, you much bridge the connection between the two. This, for me, has taken many years of study and thought. It may be quite a bit easier, for some, to connect to the ancient information. Given the nature of humanity, we all need to have this connection before we do irreparable damage to this planet. We are close to that now. Many cultures understand this including Native Americans, monks, shamans, Buddhists, Hindus, and many others. We all have to access our ancient information and connect with one another to make quality changes. Mastering Consciousness is being aware that you are alive. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to be able to move feel and think. We take for granted that we are sentient beings. When you lift your finger, that action is a universal miracle. Think of yourself as a biological machine that is driven by soul and consciousness. Are you your name? (think about it) When you call into work do you say that my body is sick or do you say I am sick. You are NOT your body. It's just a miraculous machine or "vessel" (Bible). It is not you. When you know who "YOU" are and being to love being "YOU" then you are "reborn" (Bible). To master it, think about WHO YOU ARE. Not what you look like. You conscious is neither male nor female.
