“Why so downcast, my soul?” (42:6)
A brief conversation with the soul: “Hey, soul – it’s a beautiful day and I’d like to enjoy myself. Stop dragging me down with your nagging!”
“No problem. I’ll stop when you give some attention to these issues you’ve been ignoring.”
“Those are your issues, not mine. I just need a break! Let me enjoy myself for once, and I won’t be so angry.”
“Look – your problem is not your co-workers, your spouse, your children, or the driver who doesn’t accelerate fast enough. Your problem is deeper, a spiritual problem. You are looking for ways to experience the rush of anger because it makes you feel alive.”
Listen to your soul.
