The Earth Soul is the indwelling life of our planet which uses the Earth as its garment.
The Earth Soul does this in the exact same way as our soul does this with the human body.
This concept is known to almost all great ancient philosophies of the world.
The Earth Soul or the Spirit of the World is the intrinsic connection between all lifeforms on this planet.
The ancient Greek philosophers called it psuchè kósmou or the psyche of the cosmos. In Greek Mythology the Earth was deified as Gaia or Mother Earth, in the Roman pantheon she was called Terra.
“Therefore, we may consequently state that: this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence … a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.”
The Roman Stoic philosophers called it Anima Mundi or the “World Soul” and they considered it to be the active reason or LOGOS behind the entire Universe. It is what pervades the entire Earth and animates all lifeforms.
The Stoics identified it with God or Nature.
In more occult terms the word Logos refers to the spiritual center of each unit of life whether mineral, plant, animal, human, river, mountain or planet. Each unit of life is part of a greater system, as the Ancient Hermetic saying goes:
As Above, So Below
Behind every life whether microcosmic or macro-cosmic there is a Logos. It is the point from which all consciousness and energy emerges into form.
Humankind for a long time possessed the knowledge about Earth’s living truth.
The Earth is a fully conscious being, a living entity with a mind of its own.
