The Soul of Things by Rev. Ernie Mills
10:30AM Whimsical World Gallery, Landrum SC
At a level of the psyche we call the “unconscious,” we experience life similar to the ways children, poets and “primitives” do; that is a world filled not with “things” or “its,” but with living, animated beings possessing feelings and emotions- an “I-thou” world. At this level, “things” have souls. These kinds of experiences are often deemed irrational, childish and illogical and subsequently repressed in favor of reason. Yet they still live in the depths of our unconscious and influence our lives in powerful ways. We will explore the soul in “things” and how we are moved in ways we are not always aware of.
