The lovely Anastasia recently posed the question Are you a soul with a body or a body with a soul? It’s a question worth really ruminating over, since there are so many layers to whatever answer you give, and for myself I can readily say that I am a soul with a body. Or to be more specific, I am a soul having a human life experience while dwelling in a body (see the layers already revealing themselves). Life is a cycle, just as nature shows us in a multitude of ways, and during this life cycle I am learning, growing, hating, loving, hurting, laughing…Living. My soul expands with each moment I fully and truly experience, and at times it seems as though this mere mortal shell will burst with how much my soul is feeling. It’s an amazing thing to be human and to be aware of the magnificence of the soul that dwells within and around the person that you are. Our souls are ourselves and we are our souls and it’s a beautiful. harmonious gift. With that in mind, Be gentle with your precious radiant soul, darling. You are worth it.
