“No one can give a definition of the soul. But we know what it feels like. The soul is the sense of something higher than ourselves, something that stirs in us thoughts, hopes, and aspirations which go out to the world of goodness, truth and beauty. The soul is a burning desire to breathe in this world of light and never to lose it – to remain children of light.”
Albert Schweitzer from Reverence of Life

“If you want the trees to grow it won’t help to water the leaves.” Thich Nhat Hanh

 

If you want your soul to grow what must you do?

For trees you must water the roots. For people we must nourish the soul. What nourishes your soul?

Sometimes and perhaps often we know what we need to do but for some reason or another can’t seem to do what it is that we need to do. For some reason there is no motivation to engage with life and it may take an external source of energy to begin to set things into motion.

What can you do to nourish your soul?

The time to start is now. This very moment is the only time that you have control of.
