Soulgineering is an information curation site whose aim is to give readers a place on the internet where they can find resources to grow and love their soul.

Every time we experience something that resonates with our soul we grow a little bit more. These experiences can come from many formats including: movies, articles, stories, books, music, videos, news items, etc. They also come in many different subjects, whether it be religion or comedy or spirituality or science.

If you are a teenager trying to find out who you are and what you want to do in life, or you are approaching your last years on this planet and have questions about life after death, this site is for you.
Where does the term soulgineering come from?
The term Soulgineering comes from the title of a writing done by Nadia Khalil, author of Original Love and Origins of Truth. In this writing Nadia describes what life would be like if our ego was weak and our soul was strong. She asks us to imagine living a life where we didn’t have to worry about what others will think about what we wear, where we work, what we say or do. Our soul becomes the warrior that fights on our behalf and reminds us that we need to feel love and compassion not just for others, but for ourselves as well. Soulgineering is an effort to meet that warrior and share in its efforts to become stronger.
by Nadia Khalil
Imagine if there were no ego
No, me, me, me
No, I have to have this or that
Imagine if you didn’t have to have a better house than your neighbor
A better car or job
Imagine if you didn’t have to feel like you couldn’t say what you are feeling
Shy about saying the truth
Distant when it comes to saying what you want
Imagine if you never had to lie
Cover anything up
Set something up, so no one would know it was you
Imagine if you didn’t need attention to feel better about you
If you didn’t need a compliment on your clothes to wear them again
Buy clothes you don’t even need to look like something or someone
Imagine if you didn’t have the pressures of ego
That nagging voice that pushes you in the wrong direction and then leaves you alone when you get lost
Imagine not having to feel like others didn’t love you or want you to be present
That you felt love from others, with others, just because you already understand that you really do love who you are
Imagine if the encouragement of life had no restrictions
And you could feel like you can do whatever you really dream you can
Imagine if you recognized Ego’s weakness rather than its strengths
Its strengths are only as strong as a false dream, a wrong road, a thought that hurts you in some way
Yet it looks like it has brains and guts, glory and stamina
Ego really only has nothing to offer you or anyone else
Soul offers you answers, and it seems like the weaker of the two because it is silent
Yet a soul’s strength is its silence
A soul lets you come to it
Waits for you to learn why
Gives you a chance to catch your breath
Think about your actions
Know your intentions
Take in that someone else is involved, not just you
Your soul’s language is silence and love
Caring and compassion
No races to a finish line without an answer at the end
Your soul is the loyal part of you
The part that knows better and tugs at you to do better
The part that reminds you to let go of what others do alone
And see your role in attracting it to you
Your soul is your partner and is a warrior
That battles your ego everyday
That pushes your consciousness to bother you when you forget your passion or that you have instincts
Your soul is the strength in the company you keep
The conversations you have
The love that you share
Your Ego loses you, sets you up for competition without any sport to play
Ignites you to feel as though the people you could love are against you
That the work you do is not enough
That the choices you make you should doubt
That the clothes you wear, the car you drive, that they are not enough
That you didn’t take the right road, that you are not enough
You find that your soul is your keeper and keeps those you love close
Keeps you close to who you are
Within compassion to yourself, to life, and to yourself again
Your soul is calm as you strive to be
And it reminds you it is already there
Without needing anything from you
It demands you to pay attention to Love
Since that is all it is
It commands your honor
And it teaches dignity
It pushes your buttons with reward of heart
Your soul is your heart
And your heart’s beating rests within your soul

Who created soulgineering?
Hi, I’m Marilu Diaz, founder and editor of soulgineering. I am a woman like every other one on this planet, full of hopes and dreams but most of all, questions. My life experiences and that of those around me led me to the questions that humanity has been asking itself for thousands of years (and some newer ones):
- Why are we here?
- What’s the meaning of life?
- Who created us?
- What happens when we die?
- Who’s right, science or religion?
- How should I live my life?
In 2003 I began to do research into some of these questions and I found that the pieces of the puzzle were scattered all over the world. Soulgineering is an effort to share some of those puzzle pieces. I still haven’t put the whole puzzle together and I’m not sure where it will ultimately lead me, but I invite you to share what promises to be an amazing and enlightening journey.
