Students Our Competitive Advantage From our recently concluded feasibility studies and market survey, we observed that the competition sure is a stiffer one because there are quite a number of people who run spas around where we are located. It is for this reason that we have added some more services like the drink bar, restaurant and the Karaoke lounge, because we know that there are only a very few who measures up to want we want to offer. Yet another competitive advantage we have over others is that we have a standard Spa facility that offers additional complementary services that will definitely help us attract and retain customers.
Other religious beliefs and views[ edit ] Charon Greek who guides dead souls to the Underworld. In theological reference to the soul, the terms "life" and "death" are viewed as emphatically more definitive than the common concepts of " biological life " and "biological death".
Because the soul is said to be transcendent of the material existence, and is said to have potentially eternal lifethe death of the soul is likewise said to be an eternal death.
Thus, in the concept of divine judgmentGod is commonly said to have options with regard to the dispensation of souls, ranging from Heaven i.
Typically both Heaven and hell are said to be eternal, or at least far beyond a typical human concept of lifespan and time. According to Louis Ginzbergsoul of Adam is the image of God.
God is considered to be the Supreme Soul, with maximum degrees of spiritual qualities, such as peace, love and purity. However, the soul is not the highest, but a middle dimension of human beings.
Higher than the soul is the spirit, which is considered to be the real self; the source of everything we call "good"—happiness, wisdom, love, compassion, harmony, peace, etc. While the spirit is eternal and incorruptible, the soul is not.
The soul acts as a link between the material body and the spiritual self, and therefore shares some characteristics of both.
The soul can be attracted either towards the spiritual or towards the material realm, being thus the "battlefield" of good and evil. It is only when the soul is attracted towards the spiritual and merges with the Self that it becomes eternal and divine.
Anthroposophy[ edit ] Rudolf Steiner differentiated three stages of soul development, which interpenetrate one another in consciousness: Miscellaneous[ edit ] In Surat Shabda Yogathe soul is considered to be an exact replica and spark of the Divine.
Similarly, the spiritual teacher Meher Baba held that "Atma, or the soul, is in reality identical with Paramatma the Oversoul — which is one, infinite, and eternal Cornford quotes Pindar by saying that the soul sleeps while the limbs are active, but when one is sleeping, the soul is active and reveals "an award of joy or sorrow drawing near" in dreams.
Plato's tripartite theory of soul Drawing on the words of his teacher Socrates, Plato considered the psyche to be the essence of a person, being that which decides how we behave.
He considered this essence to be an incorporeal, eternal occupant of our being. Plato says that even after death, the soul exists and is able to think. He believed that as bodies die, the soul is continually reborn in subsequent bodies.
However, Aristotle believed that only one part of the soul was immortal namely the intellect logos. The Platonic soul consists of three parts: Plato also compares the three parts of the soul or psyche to a societal caste system.
According to Plato's theory, the three-part soul is essentially the same thing as a state's class system because, to function well, each part must contribute so that the whole functions well.
Logos keeps the other functions of the soul regulated. In Aristotle's view, the primary activity, or full actualization, of a living thing constitutes its soul.
For example, the full actualization of an eye, as an independent organism, is to see its purpose or final cause. This organization between form and matter is necessary for any activity, or functionality, to be possible in a natural being.
Using an artifact non-natural being as an example, a house is a building for human habituation, but for a house to be actualized requires the material wood, nails, bricks, etc.
However, this does not imply that a house has a soul. In regards to artifacts, the source of motion that is required for their full actualization is outside of themselves for example, a builder builds a house.
In natural beings, this source of motion is contained within the being itself. The various faculties of the soulsuch as nutrition, movement peculiar to animalsreason peculiar to humanssensation special, common, and incidental and so forth, when exercised, constitute the "second" actuality, or fulfillment, of the capacity to be alive.
For example, someone who falls asleep, as opposed to someone who falls dead, can wake up and live their life, while the latter can no longer do so. Aristotle identified three hierarchical levels of natural beings: For these groups, he identified three corresponding levels of soul, or biological activity: Aristotle's discussion of the soul is in his work, De Anima On the Soul.
Although mostly seen as opposing Plato in regard to the immortality of the soul, a controversy can be found in relation to the fifth chapter of the third book: In this text both interpretations can be argued for, soul as a whole can be deemed mortal, and a part called "active intellect" or "active mind" is immortal and eternal.
