Question: Does the earth have a soul?Sri Chinmoy: Certainly. The earth represents the Mother aspect of the Divine. It is on earth that matter and spirit will find their absolute fulfilment in their reciprocal help and complete union. Matter will see through the eye of the spirit's vision. Spirit will flower by awakening and energising matter to become a perfect basis of physical immortality and human transformation on earth. The two main characteristics of the soul of the earth are Aspiration and Compassionate Tolerance.
