The Soul's Mandate

Sailing away to the Moon, by Harrison Howard

"Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul."
    —Edward Abbey

I discovered this quotation from Free Will Astrology, which is always an excellent resource for inspiration. Edward Abbey may have had a different idea of action than I do, but that's the beauty of individuality. And anyway, I doubt any soul's sentiments can be narrowed to a single action or even a single theme.

To put that idea in another form, and to get a little Zen, what are the soul's sentiments, anyway? Speaking from my own experience, my soul is about as mysterious as the moon, and all I can do is be actively, mindfully present with that mystery.
