An Excessive (extra) soul


Some people are born with an Excessive or extra – soul.

This does not allow them to integrate within a system that asks people to repress their soul in order to adjust themselves to the greater system.

Most people don’t find integration within a system too difficult, but for them it is almost impossible.

It is a great gift, but because they live in a soulless society – they find it difficult to fit, to find their place, to belong, to settle down.

It has actually become a heavy weight for them.

The Excessive -soul calls for companion compassion and a space from those who possess an ordinary soul.  

The question for them is: what to do with their Excessive soul? Being artists or religious is one way, belonging to a spiritual sect – is another, or choosing alternative medicine. If they don’t find a space that gives a home for their Excessive soul – they are lost and not only that, but they have to carry the stigma for it.

They have no option other than finding their own particular way to actualize their particular extra-soul, with as little damage from the outside on the way – (as much as possible).



„The free soul is rare, but you know it when you see it – basically because you feel good, very good, when you are near or with them. “ — Charles Bukowski, book Tales of Ordinary Madness.
