One Single Impression: Soul


Said myself to My Soul,
"Soul, whereforth goes thou?"
My Soul replied, "don't act so holy,
I know you very well."
"O well," I said learily,
then wishing to myself this time,
"why did I ask?"

That wasn't the end of this exchange
and soon My Soul was talking again.
"Whither thou goest I will go.
There is no other path."

Yes, we often talk with our inner self, call it soul or whatever....

Ah, that inner voice. So important - as long as it doesn't talk back too much.

Inner conversations are the best isn't it? The truth is we will never know our journey after this life.

Nice one ~

You outdid yourself with this one, Jim. The voice inside connects who we are with what we are. Soul.

Good post. It's true. No matter where you go, you take your soul with you.

Your soul (and mine, I'm afraid), knows just exactly the kind of guy you are--and excuses are not allowed!

I love the inner voice- always listen to it first!!! It knows us best, doesn't it? Hope your year has started out well- take care!

Your soul is always there. You can't escape. You can't fool the Soul. If you listen you can go to great places together.

There is no other path but sometimes those conversations can get rather interesting.
Hi Jim have missed you - hope 2012 has started off well

.. the echo of our own voice soothes away the unresolved we cannot find the answer to...

what a lovely piece, a conversation with our own inner piece, our soul. there's such a humility in this humble piece I must say.
