Short and Sweet #91 – Soul


There are many thoughts about the soul and where it resides. Some say there is no soul and still others believe that it does exist and that it inhabits the heart. The Bhagavad Gita 2.17 says, “That which pervades the entire body you should know to be indestructible. No one is able to destroy that imperishable soul.” Others say that animals do not have a soul, which I do not believe. They certainly show more love than many of us. It makes me wonder; can you be loving without a soul?

This quote feels like truth to me. “My soul is the bridge between spirit and body and, as such, is a uniter of opposites. …Without soul at center, I would either transcend into spirit or become mired in matter.” — Marion Woodman

If you believe that you are a spiritual being having a human experience then surely you can see the need for an unbroken lifeline to the creator. I only speak in these terms in order for the mind to have something to contemplate. If you read yesterdays post, then you know the simple view is that everything is energy and so is the soul. There is no need for a label. No matter what you believe, it will not change what is true for you but what is important to know is that every encounter we have is a spiritual one. If you bring greater awareness into your life, you will find your own answers. In addition, bringing this awareness to every situation in your life will most certainly change your world for the better and everyone else around the world.
