The soul is single


Have you got a soul in you?
If so, when did you get it?

At the time of birth?
In the course of pregnancy?
During conception? No;

Ere conception was there life
In the daughter cells
Sent for fusion of gametes
By the male and the female.

Jeevatma, the individual soul,
Enters not at birth
And leaves not at death
In an individual.

The soul is only one,
Uncountable, and runs
Through all organisms,
Which are branches
Sprouted by evolution.

No life can be evolved
Without continuity.
No life is lost in death.
No life is come in birth

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
