Okay, the "soul" is NOT your personality, so get that out of your head.  Far from it.

Each human being has innumerable personalities; for example, you have a distinct personality you use when taking a shower; you have another personality when sitting on the toilet; another when having sex; you use a different personality for talking to your mother-in-law, distinct from the one you use for talking to your mother or your wife or your husband. You have a VERY distinct SET of personalities for dealing with your children, your pets, your mailman, your minister. Your personality changes when sitting in your car, stuck in traffic, or driving through the countryside. Et cetera, et cetera. 

Humans ADAPT rapidly because we can assemble new personalities to fit a given moment.

That's why we must necessarily relegate "personality" to the material world. Personality is both a product of the material world and a versatile tool you use for dealing with the material world.

Personality, memory, and emotion are ALL corporeal components. That means they are NOT part of your Soul. The SOUL is your event horizon to the DIVINE. It stands apart from all of the cluttered mess of your daily living. It's that part of you that remains calm and indifferent and clear when things are at their very worst.

I know, I know, people are always saying "God is Love," but that's not true.  Or, rather, it's about as true as saying Schr√∂dinger's cat is alive inside the box.  Because, you see, God must to be EVERYTHING to all people and to every creature in this Universe.  If God is Love, God is also the antithesis of Love, as well as all the degrees of Love and Hate.  If God is Good, God must also, necessarily, be Evil.  God is both the Yin and the Yang.  The Creator and Destroyer.

God is your Champion, but God is also your enemy.  God is Satan.  Sure, I can say that, and so can you.  Try it.

But that thing we call The Soul is your Divine core, it's a bubble of the Eleventh Dimension or something that is given access to this Universe at the very moment of your conception.  They say the eyes are the windows to the Soul, but you can take that a step further.

The Soul is the Window to God.

Why do you think Christ said, "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them" (that's Matthew 18:20)...?

He was saying that in gathering and looking into the eyes of others, you are communing with God.

It's sort of like the weird department-store folding-mirror effect, okay?  You remember in the old days how the big department stores always had a full-length folding mirror, usually in the ladies' section, so they could ogle themselves wearing clothing right off the rack?  The two folding wings of the mirror allowed the women to view themselves from virtually every angle.

But, if you were a kid, you always wanted to position the folding mirrors facing one another, to reflect the mirror reflecting the mirror reflecting the mirror reflecting the mirror into infinity.  It annoyed my that I could never quite see infinity because my big head was always in the way, no matter how I tried to sneak-peek.

Well, that's the effect Christ was talking about when he said where two or three are gathered.  He was talking about looking into each other's eyes, into Infinity.  That's where Christ, God and the Holy Spirit reside.

Interestingly, Science HATES the notion of Infinity.  They really hate it.  See, Infinity screws up all their majestic mathematical constructs that are dependent on a FINITE Universe.  That's why the atheist astrophysicist Stephen Hawking refuses to hypothesize on what happened BEFORE the Big Bang — because mathematics don't work before the existence of the Space-Time continuum.

Mathematics don't work after the end of the Universe, either.  Same with the interior of so-called Black Holes, where physics shatter to pieces in ways that mathematics can't begin to describe.

So, for the hardboiled astrophysicists such as Stephen Hawking, there's NOTHING before and NOTHING after the Universe.  Physicists just won't go there, because it's pure fantasy.  It's Infinity.  It's Magic and make a wish and "that does not compute" time.

Yeah, too bad old Albert Einstein left so many equations open-ended like that, with a vulgar Infinity symbol at the very last.

But, see, that's where our big heads get in the way, like the kid with the department store mirrors, so we can't sneak a peek nor comprehend Infinity in the least.

But Christ said you CAN comprehend Infinity, when two or three people gather together and look into each other's eyes and REALIZE that they are actually looking through the windows of the Soul and into Infinity, into the Realm of God.

Conversely, the Soul is God's window into our Universe.  And, yes, everything has a Soul, even the most unlikely things.  When you read in Matthew 10:29 "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father," Christ is saying, of course, that even the lowliest and most common creatures are under God's watchful eye.

But he's saying more than that.

He's saying that God knows when even a sparrow dies, because a tiny little window into our Universe is closed.  God sees into our Universe through our Souls, yes?  Well, of course, yes.

That's why God insists that everything be fruitful and multiply, that He might gaze upon His creation with constantly-replenished eyes.

Oh, about the title.... Love Recharges Life's Batteries is just an impish slogan I dreamed up for possible use on T-shirts, coffee cups, crap like that.  I wasn't going sappy on you.
