Material things do not make us as persons or as a spirit. Material things are only tools for living a physical lifestyle. Be it for business or pleasure, they are a means to an end. What does make us as people or souls is our emotions, thoughts, memories, judgements, understanding, experiences, and especially our loves and fears. These are the attributes that make up a person for good or ill in this one life we're able to experience right now.
Nothing else can fully describe the sensation of life clearly enough without a dynamic and vital consciousness. In order to appreciate all its intricacies from beginning to an end as the framework of our own unique spiritual essence. Our signature upon the Divine on us as we attempt to comprehend our own existence. Through the various religions, philosophies, or ideologies that speak loudest to us as souls. No material solution can ever satisfy such a need or identity and our role in life. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
