Is a rock also Soul?

—Ayla, at age 10,


Dear Ayla,

In a word, yes.

But hold on! This is not something to noise about. You’d be mocked. People would likely put a wall around you. You’d soon be lonely.

Most people cannot even accept that animals, too, are Souls, expressions of the ECK Life Force in a particular band of consciousness. It’d be a stretch for them to go down yet another rung to plants, let alone rocks!

A good policy is to keep quiet about things your classmates are not ready to hear.

I’ve addressed this issue more fully elsewhere. To learn more, see Youth Ask a Modern Prophet about Life, Love, and God (pp. 189–91). It is under the subhead “What Is Our Nature as Soul?”
