Impoverished Souls

“A sad soul can kill quicker than a germ”  — John Steinbeck

We’ve all encountered a person that has moved our soul in one way or another. This might have happened to you once or a handful of times. It’s not a common occurrence. But when it happens – you remember. If you’re lucky to have been touched by someone pure of heart and good-natured consider it a blessing. People with this gift can help us see light on the darkest day. There are many of them walking alongside us. We just have to open our eyes.

Sadly, as current events and news feeds demonstrate, goodness is not always present in the world around us. There are plenty of people roaming the earth that are malicious. They lack all the beauty a heart has to offer. I refer to them as impoverished souls because they’re bankrupt of any spiritual emotion leaving them severely unbalanced. These individuals will purposely inflict harm giving into the power of envy, hate, insecurities or misery. Restless souls with a desire to create unhappiness or havoc to anyone in their trail. These unkind acts take place with willful intent making it especially treacherous. The scale of malice ranges from the incomprehensible to unimaginable. Inevitably, this will destroy the tortured mind. I’m not sure deliberate change can turn the course for such individuals.

We all come into the world in the same way. The differences in circumstances not only sets us apart.  It dramatically alters the direction of our journey. People proceed through endless walkways progressively molding who they become in society.

Although, I believe life’s experiences help shape us. They don’t have to define us. The essence of who we are lies deep within. People who choose a life of self-affliction eventually turn their anguish outward. They begin to fade long before their bodies wither away into nothingness.

We owe it to ourselves to seek ways to enrich and improve our inner spirit. The smallest act of kindness performed promotes benevolence that helps you thrive. Encouraging goodwill can further strengthen health and well-being.

One of the most powerful ways to nourish our soul is through goodness. Not only for ourselves but others too.
