So, what does a soul look like, anyway? What IS a soul? “Soul” is one of those words that whenever you use it, you know the person in front of you has some idea of what you’re talking about. Yet, are we thinking of the same thing, the same idea, the same concept, the same ——-?? It’s very hard to put into words. So, don’t. Draw a picture instead, or use a bunch of colors.
Does your idea of soul shift if, instead of thinking of a soul as within your body, you think of your body within your soul? Would would that look like?
Make it so!

That last question is tickling my mind!! What a great shift of focus!! I’m going to play with it a bit before I put anything on paper. Thank you!
I’m glad it’s piqued your curiosity, Karina. I try to encourage myself to think of my body as within my soul —- the image that comes to mind is sort of like an aura, but of course the soul would permeate the body, too, not just be outside of and around the body. Or I imagine ourselves as beings who get less and less “dense” as we move out from our core, that our less dense “outer” selves can merge with other people’s less dense outer selves. Fun exercises with the serious intent of reminding ourselves that there’s just a whole lot that we don’t know how it all works — and not to get too caught up with the “usual” way of knowing things.
