“What is a soul,” enquired the little boy of his father (Cary Grant) in the 1958 movie ‘Houseboat’?
Your soul is like a vast ocean., he replied as they dangled their bare legs over the deck of their houseboat, gazing out across the water.
Created maybe aeons ago.
At first, let’s say, the water was crystal clear.
Then you had your first lifetime, maybe aeons ago.
You had a body, maybe not even physical, but a body of some kind.
And that first body needed life.
To stay with the same ocean metaphor, a life was drawn from that pure ocean like a bucket of water taken from it.
So that bucketful of water, your essence of your new life, was added to your physical body.
Your body, in whatever form, then had life.
At that point you became a living being.
Full of life.
Your soul is like the ocean and the water drawn from that ocean is the essence, a fragment, a reflection of the ocean.
It is a part of your soul but not you soul, if you know what I mean.
Same but different.
Connected but apart from the ‘mother soul’.
That’s how I remember the conversation.
Maybe I’ve editorialised just a little to fit my own thinking.
With each lifetime, let’s say, you had adventures and experiences.
And let’s say that every experience, every emotion, everything we learn is a colour and,, over time, each bucketful of water taken from the vast ocean becomes coloured.
Each bucketful of water is emptied into the vast ocean at the end of each lifetime.
Over the years that ocean is coloured with the waters of our lives.
Ending up today, let’s say, with soul ocean coloured by every lifetime we’ve ever had.
So with each bucketful taken from an ocean of coloured water we begin a new life coloured by our past.
A past we probably don’t remember.
And so we enter every new life with an essence of our many, many pasts.
Only to add more colours this time.
We are both our soul and an essence of soul.
This essence contains many clues to our present including our Destiny.
Is this your idea of soul?
Love and Peace.
