The Portrait of the Soul

The word soul means so many different things to so many people. & Sometimes placing a feeling into words is a daunting task. In my experience, I have always found it difficult to define what a soul is to me. This morning I discovered the definition.

Enjoy. XX

Food for the Soul


When a portrait of someone is painted attention is paid to each feature on the face so that the personality is experienced by those who see it.

The soul is incorporeal, not visible to the eyes so what is the portrait of the soul? How is its character painted and appreciated?

Virtues are the decoration of the soul. They need to be understood and then they can be imbibed and become the personality of the soul.
When virtues are expressed in this way those around me will experience them. I will also take pleasure and power from it as it is a very elevated form of donation.

With virtues the soul becomes valuable and valued. It is not so much about what someone looks like but the portrait is the feeling and experience of having been in the company of a valuable soul.

Let me paint a valuable portrait today.
