The Soul Bird

“Deep down, inside our bodies, lives the soul. No one has ever seen it, but we all know it’s there. Not only do we know it’s there, we know what’s in it, too. Inside the soul, right in the very middle of it, there’s a bird standing on one foot. This is the soul bird. 

Deep down, inside, lives the soul. No one has ever seen it, but we all know it’s there. Never, never has a person been born who didn’t have a soul. It sparks the moment we are born and never leaves us — not even once — for as long as we live. It’s like the air that people breathe from the moment they are born until the time they die. Most important is to listen to the soul bird, because sometimes it calls us.

 And we don’t hear it. This is a shame —it wants to tell us about ourselves. Some of us hear it all the time. Some almost never. And some of us hear it only once in a lifetime. That’s why it’s a good idea — maybe late at night when everything is quiet — to listen to the soul bird deep down inside us”…
