There is a very special relationship between the soul and the body, which together form a human being. This relationship last only the span of a mortal life. When life ceases, each one returns to its origin, the body to the world of dust and the soul to the spiritual worlds of God. The soul, after its separation from the body, progresses for all eternity.
The soul is a spiritual entity created by God. A soul which is faithful to God will reflect His light and be drawn to Him. The faithful soul will attain a sublime position and eternal happiness, but the unfaithful soul will recognize its loss and be consumed in eternal remorse.
Life is not the changes and chances of the world, its true significance is found in the development of the soul. Just as in the womb, one acquires the powers needed for this world, so in this world we should acquire the powers needed for the next!
