Reflection for today…The Dangers of a Sad Soul -Henry David Thoreau

14 Apr

“A sad soul can kill you quicker, much quicker, than any germ” 
Henry David Thoreau 

Norma Jeane Mortenson otherwise known as Marilyn Monroe was not a “sad soul.”

She was a beautiful soul. 

I don’t particularly think that anyone is a “sad soul.”

Everyone has some melancholy in their soul.

In the continuum of melancholy, some people experience more sadness than others.

I think Thoreau means a chronic sadness/depression is what will kill you.

What is your interpretation?


Please enjoy Wash My Soul by Tricky.



How can you “wash your soul?”

Meditation? Healing? Love?
