From the new book,
The Human Soul:
An Ontological Exegesis of Transcendence
By Wanda M. Woodward, Ph.D.
We live in a time when the Divine Echo within our Souls has been so dimmed by the cacophony and frenzied pace of the profane world that it is difficult for a calm voice of sanity to be heard above the madding crowd. Desperately needed today is a universal guiding ethos which is intelligible to large groups of people across religious, sociocultural, and educational strata, has the potential to inspire cross-cultures toward a common higher good, and has the hope of unifying the Collective Psyche of humankind since it is only through unification that psychological health and well-being are even remotely possible. The model of the Soul describes psychological maturity and optimal health in terms which link the Soul with philosophy and spiritual principles. This higher level of Soul consciousness, in turn, relates to the transcendence of the ego and demonstrates a process whereby a Transcendent Psyche manifests. When this occurs, the Soul, by definition, is synonymous with the Transcendent Psyche.
