Weak Souls
Question:

Deepak,
If we "are not our brains" and our soul is our true self, then why are souls so "weak" and our brains so "strong" in controlling our lives, or at least the perception of our experiences? Why doesn't the soul remain at the forefront of experience after birth?
Response:

Our brains are “strong” in controlling our lives only because of the habits our souls or minds have chosen to reinforce. Our brains and bodies are passive and innocent vehicles for the workings of our soul, mind and emotions.

Love,
Deepak
