Commentary on Meditations: B5:11

To what use, then, am I now putting my soul? Ask yourself this question on every occasion. Examine yourself. 'What do I now have in this part of me called the directing mind? What sort of soul do I have after all? Is it that of a child? A boy? A woman? A despot? A beast of the field? A wild animal?'

An excellent question to keep at the forefront of your mind at all times!

How am I using my soul (directing mind) now?

We are meant to think and have self-reflection.  It is a quality almost all animals do not have.  Humans have the ability to reason and think.  This is our nature.  If we fail to act accordingly, we are not living in accordance with the Whole or our nature.
