Human soul consists of two components: opening and closing. They are opposite, the same as breath and expiration is, and cannot exist one without another. In a state of opening, a person accepts surroundings ingenuously, in unity, infinity, without thinking, just with sensation and emotion inside.

In practice these two states should be divided into two sides: active and passive. Thus, a four-part circle is formed. A person practically can feel only a domination of every of these states.

A state of active opening or active exterior meditation of "flight" (when the state of active opening predominates for a longer time)

It is a state of breath, morning, spring, sun, childhood. Its features are lightness, flight, surprise, joy. There is neither thinking nor activeness of physical force. This state sometimes intensifies negative emotions, so before strengthening this state you should eliminate negative thoughts and strengthen the positive ones.

A   state   of   passive   opening   or   passive   exterior   meditation   of   "unity   with surroundings" (when the state of passive opening predominates for a longer time) It is a state of stopping of the opening, a day, the youth, the summer. Its features: unity with surroundings, infinity, liberty, immortality. There is neither thinking nor activeness of physical force. Negative psychological disposition does not allow to have a quality sensation of this state.

A state of active closing or a state of "physical force"

It is a state of expiration, physical force, evening, autumn. It is a state of active action, where physical force predominates over mind.

A state of passive closing or "mind"

It is a state of closing inside, night, winter and thinking. Its features: process of thinking, concentration of attention, revealed differences, cause and consequence relation, hierarchy, progress are determined. Deep closing inside is an inner meditation. It is a state of tranquility and relaxation. A state of mind often predominates over the other ones in social life.

P.S. In a process of development of an intellect, rational understanding of a soul is needed.

To rediscover that we too "enlightened" people have a soul that needs to be rediscovered, we can go East, as the above article seems to do, or we can stay West and begin with reading Aristotle tract "On the Soul" written some 24 centuries ago. Consider this excerpt from that work:

"Generally, about all perception, we can say that a sense is what has the power of receiving into itself the sensible forms of things without the matter, in the way in which a piece of wax takes on the impress of a signet ring without the iron or gold."

--ARISTOTLE, "On the Soul"

I am terribly sorry but I do not understand this text. It just makes no sense. "It is a state of expiration, physical force, evening, autumn." Huh?

The article itself seems obvious nonsense and the quotation from Aristotle reveals a total misconception of how a mind sorts the chaotic mayhem of external perception to accept only a limited filtered input which may be fitted into preconceived categories.
