Can your soul fit into a mailbox? Take this Survey to Find Out!
(Is this is silly question? Yes. Try to have some fun, okay?)
Directions: Answer these simple questions, True or False, add up your score, and I’ll give you some instructions at the end.
1. T or F On cold, windy days, sometimes it feels like the wind goes “right through you”.
2. T or F Cats and dogs bother you when you don’t want them to.
3. T or F The wrong mail has been delivered to your home.
4. T or F This wrong mail to your home stuff has happened more than once.
5. T or F Sometimes you feel lighter in the morning time.
6. T or F After a hair cut, sometimes you miss your hair.
7. T or F You feel like you’d like to “go home” sometimes, even though you might be at your own house when you think that.
8. T or F Babies and crazy people sometimes stare at you…knowingly.
9. T or F Your fear of heights has gotten worse over the years.
10. T or F You don’t wear out shoes like you did ten years ago.
Now, give yourself 5 points for every T, and 10 points for every F. Add them up.
If you scored 50-100, your soul is pretty hard to define, size and shape-wise, but I won’t lie to you, you have one. It might fit into a mailbox.
If you scored over 100, you have a soul, and a mailbox is no place to put it. Use your mailbox for letters, and small packages. Take larger packages directly to the post office, and take your soul and spirit with you.
We may not think about our spirits and souls in an everyday way, but if we hold our breath for 20 minutes, a lot of questions get answered. The life breath goes right out of us. The Greek word for spirit is literally “breath of life.” It seems there are a lot of things that aren’t incredibly easy to define. If we think we can use the Bible as a glossary, we’ll find out, there isn’t a definition of the word “soul,” “spirit,” like there would be in a glossary, which would clean up the confusion, nice and tidy-like. But, most of us realize our life experience isn’t just surface level. Are we simply machines that live a few decades, and then die? That’s the harder thing to believe, especially when we take in Beauty that is all around us.
Things like Beauty, Hope, Love, Innocence, and such, are *Ideals* that point deeper, or further out, than we can clearly perceive, or could ever accurately measure. Knowing God (who is infinite and personal) works the same way. So does a life that includes an acknowledgment of soul and spirit, and a journey toward the heart of God who is “Other,” the Source of Good, and the best of the ideals written on our hearts.
Thanks for playing.
I hope you stay, read some posts or try the other self-tests, and leave comments where you’d like to.
