The soul is created in the image of G-d. That means that she is endowed with intellect and emotions: Kindness, Discipline, Compassion, Perseverance, Splendor, Bonding and Nobleness.
In order to optimize fully our experience of life we will get familiar here on our Soul-Seeking Social Network website how to refine those aspects of kindness which requires discipline, how to refine that aspect of kindness that requires compassion, and so forth...
We can do it during one week when we decide to refine beauty, we spend one day refining that aspect of beauty that requires dignity, and another day on that aspect of beauty that requires humility, until we have refined all seven aspects of beauty.
Ultimately, all character traits derive from combinations of these seven basic ones. Each quality continually interacts with the others, and in so doing has the capacity to modify its expression and effect. To be whole, a character trait must incorporate all seven; a lack or overabundance of even one of the seven renders it corrupt and, in some cases, damaging. Discipline, for example, can easily become cruelty with but a slight exaggeration.
These concepts may became for you the foundation of a new language, the Language of the Soul.
This language will provide a vocabulary that allows us to name and identify, and to interact with reality, with qualities that are non-tangible—that cannot be touched nor seen—but can be expressed in action.
If we learn to talk and use these terms in a clear, specific, and concrete ways, we have the possibility of penetrating the heart and mind of G-d and His Creation, and opening a new channel to communicate with us from a deeper part of Himself.
Using the seven attributes as a guide, we can speak to our children and interact with the reality of others not only about what something is, but how it is that way.
We cannot only define kindness, we can also describe what it looks like in action. Does it always look the same? Can the same act be kind in one situation and cruel in another? Can an act appear cruel and yet still be kind? How and why?
The expression of any of these seven attributes requires modification depending on circumstances, and results in a variety of ways in which a particular quality might be expressed differently to meet a specific situation.
