The seventh layer of Circle of NEW YOU identified by violet colour is known as Soul or Atman. This is the inner most layer of seven concentric layers and remains in unmanifest form.
This layer manifests via kernel layer but very difficult to comprehend or even witness it. For example - we can feel the power of wind, but we cannot see. We know it is there, we cannot touch and control it.
Universe is created with a lot of laws and disciplines - many are felt and visualised, and there are many which cannot felt, unless our intellect reaches certain realms. Soul is one such layer, which is the subtlest layer of Circle of NEW YOU, it joins threads - the threads of nature, our past, present and future existence and the supreme creator - which has no beginning or end.
Soul is considered as singular entity, it remains in unmanifest form. All humans are a derived entity of that supreme soul, which has properties exactly same as that singular entity. Atheist and God believer might have different interpretation of the manifestation entity called soul, but the powerful presence of it inside human body is never debated.
The inner most layer of Circle of NEW YOU is the core layer of human engineering. This is the subtlest layer of all. It is known by different names: Atman, the Soul or the Spirit of your body, denoted here by the violet colour. This is the most fascinating layer of human engineering. It remains in the unmanifested form. It manifests itself via the kernel, the seed layer.
When the soul comes into contact with the kernel, manifestation happens – similar to the refraction process when the light hits the prism. Its’ manifestation via kernel generates thoughts at intellect layer, emotions at emotional layer, actions and perceptions at physical layer of human engineering.
In modern connotation, we can think of the phenomenon that is akin to electricity manifesting itself via filament as light. In various philosophies and spiritual sciences, the soul is considered to be a separate entity of the human body. It’s also called the inner voice or the inner consciousness that transcends the physical body.
Swami Vivekananda explained the concept very beautifully. As per him, if there is one common doctrine that runs through all apparently fighting and contradictory sects, it is all the glory, power and purity of soul.
All admit the truth that power is there, potential or manifest, but it is there - and sooner you believe that, better it is for you. The feeling of independence which possesses us all, shows there is something in us besides mind and body. The soul that reigns within, is independent and creates the desire of freedom.
Each soul is a star, and all stars are set in that infinite azure, that eternal sky. That is the root, the reality, the real individuality of each and all.
The deep power is within - the eternally pure, illuminated and ever free is soul. One gets a glimpse of it through deep reflection, meditation and contemplation. It is equally present in all, but through prolong and consistent practices one can realise the self.
