Ruby R Ruby is my two year old daughter. And she has given me more in her two years than anyone else has in my whole life. I was 36 years old when she was born and had pretty much given up on life ever having any purpose and meaning. I was a guy with an addiction to drugs and alcohol and an empty soul; I was living for...

We are not "here for a reason" and do not "have a mission in life." It is WE who CHOOSE what to do with our lives, for good or for ill. The key is making the right choices. We only get one chance at life, so it's as simple as being part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

Tony B from TX JULY 27, 2012
Only in the end of this life, will you remember who you really are. How did you spend this life? What soul values did you gain from this life? Please remember you are here for a reason. We all have a mission in this life. Find yourself within. Your soul only speaks from the heart, it can not make choices for you, your mind makes the decisions. Souls are eternal and this earth is our school. The key is Love.

Bill from Savannah Ga JULY 9, 2012
There exists a quality within us that the pale cast of thought cannot think away. This I believe is what is meant by rational soul.

Mary from Santa Monica, CA NOVEMBER 16, 2011
Soul is the essence of who we are, and remembering that we came from Love ... choosing to live each day walking in love instead of fear.

Cc from East bay, CA JULY 11, 2011
How does the soul get cleaned?
