The nature of the soul is to be constantly in action. It is a spark of energy; like a flame, it’s always moving, always transforming.
It is unavoidable that we move. Try to stay still—you can’t. There is always something moving in your body and sooner or later the body too will move.
When you realize certain processes in your body are happening by themselves, this allows you to be uninvolved in them.
In the same way, your mind is thinking. It’s going to continue thinking anyway, so you don’t need to get involved in what it’s doing, either.
