Good morning to amazing you!
The picture is the Chinese Lantern Plant.
During the Bon season,
it is displayed as a lantern
for the dead spirits to be able to find the way home.
So those spirits – including us,
each one of the spirits is also made of several souls.
Since the time of ancient Japan,
the anatomy of Soul or Spirit was taught as
One spirit four souls
five spirits five souls.
This origin goes back to thousand few hundreds years
as it was mentioned in the Kojiki & Nihon-shoki,
the oldest literatures in Japanese history.
In addition to the following four souls of
with the addition of
makes five souls total.
Kuwashi-mitama connects and blends all other four.
Each of them have unique function and so that
balancing souls means also
making sure that the function is running optimally.
And so that we keep polishing our souls.
The process of soul care does actually have
certain steps and directions
as people are aiming for virtuous fulfillment
while understanding the life as the process.
Yes, so we were actually born to polish and shine!
Living means we are already initiating such an amazing process –
isnt’ that a Very Soulful Delicious Moment?
and yes, that is one of many reasons that
you are absolutely precious and amazing!
Thank you so much as always
and have a great day!
We will talk about the four souls next time 😉
With love, hope and gratitude from my heart,
