The Soul

The Soul

Consider this: it is said that every cell in the body is replaced over a seven year period. So, physically, you are not the same person as seven years ago. But you are still you, aren’t you?

That which is you is the soul. It has remained when everything else has changed. It doesn’t have to be a thing, you understand. It isn’t physical. It’s the idea of you.

An idea in God’s mind, if you wish. Or not; that doesn’t matter.

All that matters is that it does exist, this soul.

Addendum: It seems that 15 years is the correct number for some of the oldest cells (in the bones) but the concept is the same!
