If we would only honor our soul with the same commitment we honor dear friends.
Honoring Your Friend
Each of us has a particular piece of wisdom, which we might describe as truth made possible by love. Each of us with a bit of eternity that if not brought forward will be lost; or at least stay silent during our time on earth. This piece of inner wisdom which is in everything and yet which you alone carry doesn't have a name. We could call it your soul. So as you would honor a grandparent or a teacher, how will you befriend your soul? What kind of relationship will you have with the oldest part of your life, so it might speak to you?
A Question to Walk With: Describe your relationship with your soul.
