Where you are is as important as where you came from. What you do every day is as important to the soul, to the revelation of the soul, as what you parents did to you, or what you were like when you were five or ten. Every move you make, every bite you get, every word you say, is inventing yourself. We think the soul is already made by what happened early on, and we’re always trying to fix it, to adjust it. But suppose I’m making it now, as I talk?
