This is a question that I ask pretty often. I always get an interesting look – especially if I’ve never asked you this question before. It’s really something that I want to know, but we aren’t used to thinking about how we’re doing – at the depth of “soul.”
When I ask about your soul, it is a level of ‘how are you doing’ at a much deeper level – the soul level. It’s where most things start. Depending on your definition of soul – it isn’t simply a how are you doing on the surface. Inherent in this soul question is the messy stuff and the hard stuff. I heard someone yesterday talk about the ‘swampland of the soul.’ An interesting picture for sure.
When I ask this question, that’s the level that I am interested in. That’s where alot of the identity stuff happens. Identity work is not easy. It’s swampland stuff. It takes courage and bravery to do identity work – at the level of the soul.
So – How is Your Soul?
