The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on.
- J. G. Holland
What does my soul feed on? A question that is in no way an easy one to answer. It requires a deep analysis into my soul, body and mind. An answer, of which, I am not entirely sure I can understand and/or give. However, I will try.
A few thoughts that have just come to mind:
-Working with plants, trees and shrubs and their landscapes feeds my soul.
-Playing with my children.
-When I have just finished cleaning up the sheets, floor, and pajamas of my son's after a violent episode of vomiting and hearing him say, "Thank you daddy, for cleaning up after me." as he looks up at me with weary and exhausted eyes.
-Reaching out to people who have felt set aside or ignored by the majority.
-Standing up for the underdog.
-Teaching my children.
-Embracing my wife.
-Embracing my children.
-Lord of the Rings.
-Learning with my wife.
-Contemplating the divine or lack there of.
While they are not exactly concentrated thoughts, they are definitely notes to come back to at a later time.
What feeds your soul?
