My Soul is Writing a Book About Me?!?!

on February 26, 2013

Yesterday I spent half an hour freaking out because I published a post and in the margins it said:

Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.

~Marsha Norman

WHAT?!?!?!! My soul is writing a book about me? Why is it doing that? What is it doing that for? Please don’t do that! And I’m really worried about these illustrations ….. I mean, I’m not sure giant talking dog-rabbit things should really feature in an illustration of my life…….. AND WHAT ABOUT THE MONKEYS?!?!?!?! I mean let me tell you, they are some creepy monkeys!

I mean, what would my soul even write in a book about me?  I mean, it’s not like it has hands …. or does it? Sort of ghostly, spectral hands ……….. and how are those supposed to type? Honestly ….. I suppose it could dictate, but surely people would  run and hide when they saw it coming ……… I’ve got a bad feeling I’m beginning to mix up souls and ghosts …….

What is a soul anyway?

Let us turn to my two must untrustworthy advisors – Google and Wikipedia.

Google:

soul

/sōl/

Noun
  1. The spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal.
  2. A person’s moral or emotional nature or sense of identity.
Synonyms
spirit – mind – psyche – heart – ghost

Wikipedia:

The soul, in many mythological, religious, philosophical, and psychological traditions, is the incorporeal and, in many conceptions, immortal essence of a person, living thing, or object.[1] According to some religions (including the Abrahamic religions in most of their forms), souls—or at least immortal souls capable of union with the divine[2]—belong only to human beings. For example, the Catholic theologian Thomas Aquinas attributed “soul” (anima) to all organisms but taught that only human souls are immortal.[3] Other religions (most notably Jainism) teach that all biological organisms have souls, and others further still that even non-biological entities (such as rivers and mountains) possess souls. This latter belief is called animism.[4]Anima mundi and the Dharmic Ātman are concepts of a “world soul.”

Soul can function as a synonym for spiritmindpsyche or self.[5]

Methinks the Google version is simpler 😀

Back to topic – how can a soul write a book? Let alone one about me! I mean according to Google, my soul is me!

I think I have delved to deeply …….. Ooooh Lord of the Rings moment 😉

(You know what they awoke in the dark)

Anyway, I think I just might have given this a bit too much thought …………. Oops 😀

Anyway, my Shine On post is coming, it’s coming! Either later tonight or tomorrow, I promise! Well, allons-y!, revising for Biology SAT :{

Bye!

DFTBA,

Beth
