What allows our body to move, feel emotions, love ? Different religions call it by different names but they all believe that there is a divine essence that allows the body to cross this existence that we call “Life” from the moment we are born until we die, what happens then is not yet certain, in the course of our existence we meet people, we live adventures, we grow and learn, among the many souls with whom we will happen to become traveling companions will establish ties that can last for a day or forever, but what allows these meetings to be only random or important ? Who or what makes it possible to bond with certain people more than with others? It seems that the soul is capable of recognizing who is on the same wavelength as us, something that the mind is not capable of.
40 years have passed of this short adventure that we call “Life” and my body is beginning to show the first signs of rupture due to the inevitable expiry date that is part of this mystery that is The greatest adventure that we can live “Life” itself, two old friends have come to visit me and as always happens when we meet, time loses its importance, stops, nothing seems to have changed since we were young and strong, our bodies have changed, aches, pains, intolerances, hair and beards a little gray but the Soul has not aged, The Soul cannot grow old but can accumulate experience and mature, The Soul has no age and perhaps immortal, The Soul is able to recognize his fellow men and with whom he is comfortable, the body seems to be just a kind of shell that at some point will lose its usefulness and abandon us, but perhaps The Soul will continue in its adventure only in another form, I do not have an answer but I have no doubt that I was lucky to have met so many wonderful souls in these 40 years that have made this adventure a beautiful journey, I do not know when and how it will end but when my expiration date will arrive I can ‘consider myself lucky to have met special souls that have allowed this trip to be full of beautiful memories and unforgettable moments
