Wouldn't it be great if we walked around surrounded by our souls, so that they were the first things people saw instead of the last things? Then people would judge us by who we really are instead of how we look. Imagine no more racism, ageism, sexism, fatism, shortism, homophobia. Imagine falling in love with who a person is, just by looking at them.
It would be a kind of cloaking device, hiding physical faults defects or even perfections. I'd want it to be mandatory. Then people would work at making their souls more attractive instead of their bodies and faces.
Imagine people knowing by your soul that you really need a hug. Imagine people helping each other and their souls changing colors or growing.
Imagine soul gyms with exercises to get your sagging soul in shape. Imagine the long lines forming for soul-lifts at churches, temples, mosques, synagogues or nature's grand cathedrals.
