What is soul?
individual, a family or an organisation.”
Spirituality she defines as “the human spirit, fully engaged”
If it’s true that “Wen eet ees zere, we love eet.”, then to remember the moments when we’ve loved things would be getting close.
The character Billy Elliot dancing, a boy transformed, completely alive,magnificent and an absolute joy to watch. That’s it, it’s here. We’ve got it…we’ve got real joy.A wooden bowl I have that has been carved with such love, care and attention. I can feel it. It is imbued with soul.A sip of Reggiano Rosso wine. There is no way that it’s an automated process with a night watchman smoking and watching the TV. They love it…they must…you can taste it.Gabriel Faure’s Requiem, Monteverdi Choir and Orchestre Revolutionaire et Romantique, that particular production is exquisite, it stops me in my tracks and has me sat stock still, feeling it flood through me. It commands attention and transports me. I honestly find myself in a blissful state.
How would you rate your aliveness at the moment?
when I’m completely absorbed, flowing, lost track of time and quite unaware of anything other than what I’m doingan absence of anxiety, guilt, shame, fear, ego and other things that have me make decisions or behave in ways I don’t like so much when I look back on them
Who’s taking most of your decisions and shaping your life, your soul, true to you or your ego, worrying what others will think, feeling guilt, shame or fear?
I’d like it if once you got connected to your soul, that was it. You’re now in bliss and that’s how it will always be. Same as cleaning the house, I’d like it if that was that. It is now clean and that is how it will stay.
