What is soul? Spirit? Rhythm? Music? Deepness?
The thesaurus says "the vital principle or animating force within living beings, breath, divine spark, life force, vitality, the essential being of a person regarded as immortal, the most central part, the core, essence, heart, gist, seed, marrow, meat, nub, pith, quintessence, root, substance, the seat of a person's innermost emotions and feelings, bosom, breast, heart and heart of hearts". It seems to me that this is where authentic power comes from. The soul of the apple is the seed that has the power to grow a tree a million times it's size, and multiply far beyond its knowing. When we bite into an apple we appreciate the crispness, we enjoy the flavor, the juicy sweetness of the fruit. And we discard the seed without a thought of it's importance. Is our essence unnoticed, our core unacknowledged, our heart of hearts ignored? Or are we in tune with our souls? Are we becoming more of our authentic selves as we grow in age and wisdom? Are we mindful of the things that energize our core being? Are we even remotely aware of the incredible force of nature within us? Are we conscious of the fact that our true potential is limitless? In order to be women of substance we must know our heart, be our quintessential selves and live from our center with vitality. We are the life force the world needs so desperately now.
