What does the word “soul” mean? What actually is it? Not sure anyone has or can or give a definition of the soul. But i supose we know what it feels like. Maybe the soul is the sense of something higher than ourselves, something that stirs within us thoughts, hopes, and aspirations which go out to the world of goodness, truth, and beauty. Just maybe the soul is a burning desire to breathe in this world of light and never lose it – to remain children of that mysterious light...maybe...

i was thinking earlier about giving birth and how your brain is a pretty useless tool since it can neither stop the process of labour nor make it easier (try as we might with all the breathing exercise mularky). the body takes over in this very weird and powerful way and you experience 'human' as something altogether different.

to me this is where the soul lies; at the place which is utterly human and yet more than the sum of its parts (body and mind). and at the same time indivisable from these parts.
