The Meaning of Life: The Russian Village and a Soul…

This video caught my eye and ear awhile back and I saved it to post on a day that I was drinking a cup of coffee and trying to understand my feels of why I think Russia is a wonderful place to live…

The villages in Russia are indescribably beautiful and this video shows that beauty. Russian songs will touch the heart, even if you can not understand what is being said and I feel that not understanding, actually makes it better. You just put the words that you want to hear into the music and let your soul sing for you…

That is the answer: The Soul…

Russia has soul and I discover it everywhere I go in Russia. Soul is under the rocks, behind the trees, in the buildings, floating in the sky, flowing down the rivers and creeping around the cites. All in silence and stealth. Then when you least expect it, you are gripped by the soul of Russia and you then understand the meaning of life. Then you can allow your own soul to flourish and bloom…

Don’t lose your soul and if you must leave to keep it, then leave and rediscover your soul. For to lose your soul is:

“You can exist without your soul, you know, as long as your brain and heart are still working. But you’ll have no sense of self anymore, no memory, no . . . anything. There’s no chance at all of recovery. You’ll just — exist. As an empty shell. And your soul is gone forever . . . lost.” ― J.K. Rowling,

I have lived in a world of lost souls and refuse to lose mine…

    That was beautiful. That’s what makes me stay in Russia – we are lucky we see/feel that Soul, even if it’s hard at times in a big city – I’m in love with it, in love with Russian nature and villages, with the essence of Russia, it’s all … me, my Soul. Can’t live without it, no matter what amount of comfortable/material things other places offer.
    Best of luck to you two!
