Soul is a word that reaches beyond humankind’s ability to describe. It may be religious or soulful or spiritual or… We cope with the soul word by categorizing it and arguing about “It’s” intent. Below are two quotes by Thinkers of Time who added soil and water to my soul and it grew.
“No problem can be solved from the same consciousness that created it. We must learn to see the world anew.”
“We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us.”
These two thoughts show evidence of a limitless soul life—yours and mine.
INSIGHT: We all hope we have it. IT that keeps us protected by using our five senses: vision, hearing, smell, taste and touch. But the REAL question is: Are my five wits always firing? I would love to think so; but I’d be fooling myself.
In my mind’s eye I think all five senses surely fire when shock takes hold… You know: war or despots or disaster or hatred or poverty or inhumanity or… You add your own list here.
To ask the question of whether or not Insight is Given or Acquired is like asking someone: “Do you know what your future holds?” Yet, if we were to invite this query into our consciousness—in any given moment—we just might have the first sensitivity of how to salvage ourselves. It is then, using our five senses, we just might be able to lend a hand to humankind.
