This is interesting, thank you. What do you make of the fact that we all have different personalities and inclinations though? And by personality I dont mean the mask we wear in the world but our true selves

I think the variety is what makes world interesting and motional. It will be boring place if people are totally same, even being enlightened.
The difference we have, we need enlightenment as we need air.

Oh I don't think I phrased my point correctly. What I meant was, why are we different if we are equal in spirit in your opinion?

Prepare yourself for the coming astral journey of death by daily riding in the balloon of God-perception.
Through delusion you are perceiving yourself as a bundle of flesh and bones, which at best is a nest of troubles.
Meditate unceasingly, that you may quickly behold yourself as the Infinite Essence, free from every form of misery. ~Paramahansa's Guru's Guru.

I don't know. Maybe God wants the variety :)
It's a paradox of the truth, a total equality and total diversity in a same time. As someone said we are all equal in different ways.

Not sure I can give a physical description of a soul. But we can think of it as an owner of a bank account, except that this account holder does not deposit or withdraw cash into or from his account. Rather it is a story of his actions and experiences.

We can see the past and future lives as the account being claimed by the same account holder wearing different masks in different lives.

Soul evolution can be thought of as the story of the account holder getting better with time or successive births.

Sometimes the account holder's actions get worse instead of better. It is like getting into debt that is too large to handle by one debtor. But the debt has to be paid. Perhaps the merciful universe lets a second account holder share the debt that is too much of a burden for one person to discharge. If this happens, it is the mercy of the universe making the debt tolerable.

In my opinion, a soul is a unit of Consciousness trapped in a body.

This one really got me ---good one!
Hopefully - through deep meditation it is not so trapped, tho!
Well, and then you have the Astral projection folks...
