It seems that a lot of people have a misconception of what a "soul" is and what it means to sell it. A soul is not independent of your consciousness;
it is your consciousness. Your consciousness or "soul" (if you will) leaves this present body after it dies and transitions into a different realm
(dimension) to manifest into a new body.
When you sell your soul you will sell yourself. Whether there is an actual entity called the Devil to sell your soul too, I don't know. I'm not a firm
believer in Satanic theology so I would say no. I think you could "sell" your soul in the sense that you shed off all humaness in order to achieve
personal success without virtue and thus will lead to a rebirth in a lower realm (talking from the perspective of karma here).
Well my conception of the soul differs from yours, does this make it a misconception?
''Your consciousness or "soul" (if you will) leaves this present body after it dies and transitions into a different realm (dimension) to manifest
into a new body.''
I understand what you describe, but may I ask, is one conscious of this 'transition' ? If not, how can it be of any value, or even necessary without
awareness. Re-incarnation is a cruel deception of reality.
The laws of karma may support your conception of this transition but IMHO it is just as cruel. Why should one be punished for 'bad' karma from a
previous life? If you answered 'no' to my question '' is one conscious of this transition?'' , then how does one learn from karma?
When did a 'law', particularly one concerning punishment, ever feel like a good idea for spiritual awareness?
My misconception: The soul is a part of ones higher-self. It transcends the 'conscious' , 'memory' , 'judgement' and 'DNA' - 'emotions' are different
in this respect. Words cannot do the soul justice.
Also, before I have my beliefs questioned any further -
My personal conception of 'selling ones soul' :
There are opposing forces in this 'virtual reality' we call existence. They are not equal and do share any qualities. The lesser of these forces is
darkness. It is not a person or singular entity and can exist in many forms, especially 'thought forms' that thrive on causing negative thoughts and
emotions. In short, to sell ones soul is to submit ones will to darkness and so sacrifice ones connection to higher-self. They have commited to this
'virtual reality' and nothing further. There does not require a written contract or even a 'physical' meeting to arrange this 'deal' , the
'conditions' can be negotiated in ones 'head' . Only the person who 'made the deal' is aware of what they have committed to. There is no proof, only
I think what the producer of these videos believes to have found are 'indications' in personal and witness accounts.
Thank you for your interpretation and for not allowing your personal relationship with the work of Jimmy Hendrix to feel threatened.
