It is my belief that all living things possess a soul, sometimes referred to as a spirit.
In my dreams I see our energies flowing like currents, and windy breezes. Sometimes these currents are a gentle stream, other times they are a wicked maelstrom.
Positive energy can emit tidal waves and negative energy can be as still as a pond. In my mind the spirit is never truly calm. It is always moving, always becoming something greater than it every was before.
