My Body also has a Soul

“Our holy master Rebbe Nachman says that not only the soul has a soul – but my body also has a soul – the inside of my body.  You know, imagine if all I used my hand for was just to take, and I never used my hand to give.  Rebbe Nachman says I can get physically sick from this.  My hand is crying, ‘Why didn’t you use me for the right purposes?’  You know, if my ears only hear terrible things, if my ears never hear something holy, then physically my ears are angry at me: ‘Why didn’t you do something with me which I really want to?’  Not only my soul is angry, the inside of my body is too.”  ~ R’ Shlomo Carlebach
