We Don’t Have a Soul; We Are One

We are a soul that has a body; we’re not a body that has a soul. — John Ortberg, Sr. Pastor of Menlo Churches

We live in such a rationalistic age. Everything is about thinking. We believe in a proposition rather than experiencing God. We study the body in all its intricacies. We study the mind and the brain. We study words and repeat them.

Ancient peoples studied the soul.

What you find by reading the works of those ancient spiritual explorers and even those up until today that there is universal agreement across all cultures that there is a soul.

You, too, can get in touch with your soul.

Stop, pause, consider–who is the thinker of your thoughts?

When is it time to stop thinking, though, and just find that still point of communion with God. No need for words. No need for actions–that comes later. We finally slow down, open up, focus inward beyond thoughts and worries and plans, and bask in the light that comes from God.
