That our soul is the piece of Creator within us. That way we are the daughters and sons of creator. Elsewhere he as much as said to a questioner asking, well why would I want to submit To my soul? Why would I want to put it in charge? And his answer led me to the thought, well, why would you want to spend your every moment in the presence of the most wonderful person you ever knew? James
