Spirit Soul: Nature of the Soul

                                                                  Q. Please help me to understand the purport to verse 32 of chapter 13 of the Bhagavad Gita. I thought that the soul enjoys and suffers due to his contact with the material body and also entangles himself with the karma that he performs with that body. How is it then that the activities performed due to his contact with material bodies do not entangle him?

                                                                  Can you please help me understand how these verses/purports do not contradict each other?

                                                                  Bhagavad-gita As It Is 7.14.  

                                                                  Q. Is it correct to say that the individual souls have natural inclination to enjoy independently? If yes, then what is the hope that the individual soul will ever become dependent and serve the Lord? How natural would that state be?

                                                                  No, it is not a natural inclination of the soul to enjoy independent of the Lord. It is the nature of the soul to be jubilant and to enjoy; as the Vedanta sutra says, anandamayo 'bhyasat. But we have the choice to seek that enjoyment in service to Krishna or in forgetfulness of Him.

                                                                  Q. In his purports Srila Prabhupada has called women less intelligent. If all of us, men or women, are basically Prakrti (feminine), then why a soul with a woman's body considered less intelligent?

                                                                  Q. It is a belief that dancing promotes sexual desires? Is it correct? Please clarify.

                                                                  Dancing for the pleasure of Krishna -- such as dancing in sankirtan -- is transcendental devotional service. It purifies one of material infections. Such dancing is the natural activity of the soul - in fact, it is described that in the spiritual world every word is a song and every step is a dance. Whereas dancing for sense gratification as seen in the material world is but a perverted reflection.

                                                                  Q. How do we know that the love we show to Lord Krishna is not contaminated, and how do we differentiate love and lust in the material sense?

                                                                  Below is an answer I had given to another person some time ago about "love" in the material world but it addresses your question as well:
