Thinking about the C.S. Lewis quote “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body,” I thought about the various layers of it and how it fits with what I believe spiritually. I agree 100% with the quote and it resonated with me the first time I read it.
So, what comes next is a bit jumbled.
I am me. My body is a physical representation of ME or MY SELF and a means through and by which I, or my SELF, interacts with the physical world and other physical representations of various SELVES. I know how to feed my body. But, do I know how to feed my SELF? How do you do that? Is it reading my choice of spiritual text, engaging in fulfilling activities, interacting with other SELVES? I know—and more importantly understand—that I need bread, fruits + veggies, meat, water [and a small amount of junk food :) ] to feed my body, but do I understand how to feed my SELF?
