The Value of the SoulMotto of the day
Definition of soul
The soul is the part of a living being that consists of the mind, character, thoughts, and feelings. It is the spiritual part of a person that some people believe continues to exist in some form after their body has died.
Humans are born with a soul. This is claimed and few deny it. But, who has seen it, the soul? What we notice from the outside is how a person behaves. We suspect what he is inspired by.
“And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your soul? What will people give in exchange for their lives?,” said the carpenter from Bethlehem.
Whenever we fall short of our own professed moral norms, we sell a little bit of our soul. A deal with the devil is a cultural motif, best exemplified by the legend of Faust and the figure of Mephistopheles. He is essentially a tragic figure who makes a morally wrong choice. Are we are more clever today? What do you mean?
I select the motto of the day mostly because something about it appeals to me. Something attracts me or irritates me. It feels as if it could contain something and I want to get to the root of it. So I dedicate a motto to each day and let myself be surprised what it has to offer me.
Sometimes the reason for the choice clarifies itself only after a while. That's why the thoughts about the motto of the day are often not articles, but associations. They are thoughts transformed into words. They are spontaneous and I also publish them frequently while I am traveling. They therefore tend to appear in fragments. Feel invited to add your associations. Enrich the thoughts with your personal perspectives – to complete the picture.
