Soul and Body

The soul, in a proper sense, signifies that in man which lives; consequently his life itself. That in man which lives is not the body, but the soul, and by the soul the body lives. The life of man, or his living principle, is derived from celestial love, and nothing living can possibly exist which has not thence its origin.

from Arcana Coelestia, Section 1436.
