My thought of the day........Having misunderstood soul is just as we often misunderstand God, we become disappointed when we cannot find it and dismiss it as an illusion, another fraud perpetrated by religion.

But soul is not a thing; it is a dimension of depth in a thing, so it seems to me. Like justness in a judge's ...decision, or beauty in a painting, soul is a quality of absoluteness in something relative....understood profoundly, people are connected to the holiness of the world in such a way that they reveal a dimension of holiness in themselves, a dimension of depth that is absolute.

The scared energies that smolder in us are a 'thoung of invisibles,' as psychologist.....

power that reveal themselves in our experience of the depth dimension, the holiness of the world.

To experience them we need a capacious imagination, intense commitment to living as creatively as possible, and deep attention to the inner qualities of our lives.

That depth defies measurement. What is required is personal experience, with deep conviction.

"I cannot see my soul, but know 'tis there."
