Your soul is what is running your life at any given moment. It is your internal compass. It is the deepest part of your self. You don’t direct the soul. You feed it so that the it can direct you.
How would you know if your soul is doing well?
- Consistency between private and personal life.
- Preoccupation with image/success.
- Compulsive behaviour.
- Evaluating the quality of the day according to “how much I got done.”
- Difficulty accepting people for who they are.
Soul care is important!
Our soul is like a reservoir. We need to manage the ratio of inflow and outflow. We need to be filling our reservoir with the things in the top list because they refresh and fill our soul. We need to limit and remove the things in the second list because these things drain our soul.
How is your soul doing? How well are you doing in soul care?
