A Quote by Dalai Lama on soul and spirit

I call the light and high aspects of my being spirit and the dark and heavy aspects soul.

Soul is at home in the deep, shaded valleys.  Heavy torpid flowers saturated with black grow there.  The rivers flow like warm syrup. They empty into huge oceans of soul.

Spirit is a land of high white peaks and glittering jewel-like lakes and flowers.  Life is sparse and sounds travel great distances.

There is soul music, soul food, and soul love...

People need to climb the mountain not simple because it is there
But because the soulful divinity needs to be mated with the spirit.

Dalai Lama
