Q: You talk a lot about the soul. Please help me understand what the soul is (continued from the past 12 weeks). A: Our soul is an actual piece of Divinity. It is pure; it is the essence of who we are. The problem is that all sorts of physical stuff gets on top of it and distracts us. That’s why one of the greatest quotes I’ve ever heard is: “the only thing wrong with me is that I think there is something wrong with me.” (Rabbi YY Jacobson). In other words, my soul is pure goodness. Nothing can change that. At our core, we are spiritual beings living in a physical world; not physical beings living in a spiritual world. When we know who we are, when we are connected to whom we really are, then it will naturally follow that we will live healthier lives, mentally and emotionally.
