The Perfect Soul

 

Hitler was a ten.

Gandhi was a ten.

And so was Mother Teresa.

and Charles Manson.

And so is your average rapist,

thief, murderer, and crooked politician.

In fact, we are all tens.

No one is born a one

We are all born with a perfect soul.

God gives us this possession.

No one is born bad or evil.

Life is about choices.

It’s about letting that perfect soul take charge.

Bad people aren’t born bad people.

They simply resort to bad behavior.

And for many – real bad behavior.

So if you’re troubled, angry, frightened,

greedy, or envious – find your perfect soul.

It is there. It’s always been there.

Let it lead the way.
