The body turns to dust, but the soul endures forever. I know this not from reading a book, but because I am a soul and my mind is in contact with that soul. I occupy a body for this incarnation only. I believe in myself, therefore I must believe in my soul. Most of us are born in contact with our souls but well-meaning parents, like my father, discourage that contact. Things we say are attributed to our imagination. Some people never lose that contact but others, like me, regain it after we are grown and away from our parents’ restrictive beliefs. . I hope that those who do not feel soul contact will, in time, regain it and know what it is.
