Explore the value of Soul
Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.
True achievement in any sphere of action depends upon real ability, and a strong, deep, whole-souled love.
When our eyes see our hands doing the work of our hearts, the circle of Creation is completed inside us, the doors of our souls fly open and love steps forth to heal everything in sight.
Vincent Van Gogh
Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements, and impossibilities: It is this that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak.

An Eventful Day, A Blur Of MemoriesSubmitted by Anonymous
Today was my uncle's funeral. It was an odd day of deep sorrow and grief, family time, and nostalgia. I was sitting silently in the chilly chapel and could see the back of my now widowed aunt's head bowed down in sorrow, her shoulders shaking from her quiet sobs. Just beyond her head lay my uncle, now...

We are not "here for a reason" and do not "have a mission in life." It is WE who CHOOSE what to do with our lives, for good or for ill. The key is making the right choices. We only get one chance at life, so it's as simple as being part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
Andy B., TX
Only in the end of this life, will you remember who you really are. How did you spend this life? What soul values did you gain from this life? Please remember you are here for a reason. We all have a mission in this life. Find yourself within. Your soul only speaks from the heart, it can not make choices for you, your mind makes the decisions. Souls are eternal and this earth is our school. The key is Love.
Tony B, TX
There exists a quality within us that the pale cast of thought cannot think away. This I believe is what is meant by rational soul.
Bill, Savannah Ga
Soul is the essence of who we are, and remembering that we came from Love ... choosing to live each day walking in love instead of fear.

How does the soul get cleaned?
Cc, East bay, CA
Soul is the sum total of everything in an individual that is intangible. It is all the memories, hopes, beliefs, and values of a person's life, indeed any living thing's life. It is the part of us that lives on in our interactions and our legacies.
When I look upon my Grandbabies, I see soul in the sweetest form.
Rosie M.M., Miami,Fl
Try not to look at the physical being of a person, because when life is over, it isn't your body that goes with you. It isn't your body that is judged, and your body isn't going to matter one bit. It's your soul; your personality; your spirit; your heart that will be looked at. Everyone has a soul. Can you see through it?
Soul is the essence of your being. When embraced, it can bring greater joy to all those around you as you share that unique and specialness about yourself.
To have soul means that you also have spirit.
To live your life will save someones soul.
Jack S, Colfax,IA
