Weekend Reflection: Soul Care
“Tending the things around us and becoming sensitive to the importance of home, daily schedule, and maybe even the clothes we wear, are ways of caring for the soul. When Marsilio Ficino wrote his self-help book, The Book of Life, five hundred years ago, he placed emphasis on carefully choosing colors, spices, oils, places to walk, countries to visit – all very concrete decisions of everyday life that day by day either support or disturb the soul.
[The goal of caring for the soul] is not to make life problem-free, but to give ordinary life the depth and value that come with soulfulness.”
– Thomas Moore, The Care of the Soul
