This was the first time I heard one of these stories. I absolutely loved it. And I am now going to do a meditation to connect with with my soul. I hope I get more of these stories. Awesome. Thank you so much. Xxx

I recognized that I don't invest enough in my soul's happiness and goals now. I was unbalanced with my focus on it for many years, and I made other things too important after attaining the progress that I was looking for. It's a part of us that needs daily care.

Soul comfort
I never think about my soul being with me all the time. Every moment good or bad it’s there so I may call upon it for guidance and comfort. Instead I struggle to deal with stress and anxiety or pain. I will remember that I’m never alone when life gets tough, and to look within to my soul for the answers. 🙏 Namaste

In the end...
In the end, my soul is the only thing that I own and that will be with me forever. I need to be kinder to it. I need to listen to my intuition and allow it to guide me. Love myself for who I am and be the best me I can be.

Pay attention
I guess the moral of the story is that I (we) must pay close attention to my mind, body and soul to assure that I am one with the Higher Power (my God). When my time comes, I want there to be a genuine trueness to the life that I have lived. 🙏

The time to love your soul is NOW
We often neglect our souls in our pursuit of wealth; the perfect body; trying to please friends and loved ones; and all manner of hedonism. But none of those things comes with us when we pass. Only our souls do.

I felt nervous I thought it would be a creepy story I don’t know why.
I learned that we have to take better care of our souls. That in the end our souls are the only thing we have for ever as they are the only thing that will follow us to heaven.

Grief—mustard seed story
Rather thuan going from neighbor to neighbor, I stormed God’s doors. My father’s God, my mother’s God, my Grandfather’s...and tried to pay attention to Buddhist teachings... I converted to Judaism. I was, in effect, trying to get the help I should have gotten from my neighbors—from the Unknowable. Trying to take a shortcut around the depression & isolation that characterizes my grief by ignoring the hands of neighbors, of friends. Theirs are the hands of God in this world.

The Story of the Four Wives - Reflections
I learned that even though you might care about you status, your body, and your friends and family, you must care about your soul the most. Your soul is often the most neglected part of you. No matter what your status cannot follow you belong the grave. No matter what your body can only be buried, no kept. No matter what, even if you love your friends and family they do not accompany you beyond the grave. Only your soul will follow you. Your soul is the best and worst part of you, you best friend, your worst enemy. All of it. And you must love and care for your body over everything.

Reflection
I cherished how the whole story was taken round back to how our soul is so valuable. It really is. It’s something eternal that cannot be replaced and yet we disregard it. These are the kinds of moments that make me turn back into religion. What a beautiful story/anecdote.

Truth
This is true, we get so caught up in other things in life investing in materials or looking out best or investing in our friends in family ( which is important, but not what is most important ) we can't fill the cup of others if our own cup is empty. We should all take time to invest in our selves.

I learned that sometimes you can try to do things in life and then when you die, it gets you nowhere and doesn’t come with you. But our soul stays with us forever. It doesn’t leave us. So when our souls is on a different path, we have to gain and control and to be helpful in every way. I don’t know any other way to say it...

Incredible and unique experience with this story!
I learned that my status (wealth, positions, popularity, etc.) are cared for most but aren’t that important.💝 My body (function and looks) are dwelled on but don’t stay with us wherever we go (like when we die).💖 My guidance (brain, friends, family, etc.) are important and deeply appreciated, but don’t last.💕 My soul stays with me forever, but it often neglected. It is the center heart in this emoji.💗

Never forget
I have heard this tale before yet I felt as though I was hearing it for the very first time. it wasn't until it ended that I realized I have heard it before. To me it reinstates that we must truly always be aware of where and what we are doing now in this moment?

Neglected soul
I always think of music when I hear the word soul. Maybe because music feeds my soul like nothing else. I’d take this story a step further to say that I cannot delegate the care of my soul to another-to harmfully ask them to become codependent on me. My care of my soul is a nondelegable duty I will always have. We can and should learn from others what feeds our soul, but there that role ends.

Revelation
I was not expecting the message in this story...it was beautiful! Often we think that material things and status or how we look in the outside is what matters most...but without a peaceful happy soul...we have misery. Honestly...When he came to the first wife I thought about God (which to me is our soul) and how He’s always there for us and how we often ignore Him but at the end of our life...He’s patiently there loving us and ready to take us home. ❤️🙏

Powerful reminder
This story is a powerful reminder of the reality and finality of death, and the realness of ourself. I have been on a journey of self discovery and rediscovery this past year or so. The incredible value of wife number 1 has become clear to me. She is the one who will pick you up when you fall, soothe your own broken heart, cheer for you own successes, and allow your heart and soul to be joined by another.
M

Soul soother
Well shit! I was not expecting that at all. It goes to show that no matter who you are, where you work, who your family is, and how much you possess, you must always take care of your mind and soul first. If you don’t, in the end, you’ll never truly find peace and that’s life’s greatest lesson.

An interesting story showing how the only thing that remains when you die is your soul. You will be remembered for the kind of person you were while alive, not for your money, your body or your family.

I felt it was clever to refer the four wives to for powerful sectors that make up our whole being🌈✨
I learned that the four sectors that refer to the wives are us & what we need to to learn to prioritize and take care of and not neglect because you can only take 1 of the 4 not them all.. choose wisely

A good reminder
At 44 my lifelong struggle has been self love and acceptance. This story was a poignant reminder that self love is the most important love of all and the only love that is truly eternal and should be invested in just as much or even more than all the other loves.
C

Interesting story with lots of meaning
I learn to love myself no matter what because at the end of the day if you die you’re by yourself was a strong message for me. Who can love you better than yourself? I must come first. That's what I have a hard time doing because I love helping others and want to see them happy disregarding myself. Trust me, you lose yourself unless you take time for you.

Self Care
I used to be one to get so caught up on what’s new or what’s new, name brands and staying skinny. I got sick, suffered from an eating disorder for 10 years. It wasn’t until after I had my son that my attention drifted from every I’m not and everything I don’t have, to something simple and beautiful. Staying physically and mentally healthy is my priority. It’s not a a chore! I enjoy taking care of my body , my mind and my soul. Finding my faith again, was the most life changing experience in the road to self love.
D
Devante
Perspective
As a child when making hard choices/decisions they often tell us “this or that” Giving your life this same ultimatum may not end with happiness, but possibly regret, dissatisfaction, and displeasure. Life doesn’t have to be this or that, but simply this and that. The four wives told a tale about a merchant who loved his 4 wives differently who treated his 4 wives differently as all 4 wives are different. You are promised two things in life. One, that you live and you die. Two, you will go out the same way you came in with nothing. Wife 1 is anything you decide is worthy of your time. Spend it wisely.

I’m really stump on this story other than your soul is more important than anything and you need to pay attention to it. To shy away from it. Family is very important and needs to be respected. Then you got your high maintenance and not so important. Thank you, Aura. Have a good evening Everyone!😀

Understanding...
This aligns with my beliefs completely and is an excellent teaching story! Let me explain... I Am here in this 3 dimensional physical world, so I have some position or status. It does not matter in the long run if it is high or low (in societies eyes) because we are all just as good as anyone else. No better, no worse - just different. So the 4th wife is merely an illusion of false success, we really cannot & should not marry her in the first place. I have a body - it carries out tasks and houses my mind, but I am not that body. While it is important to take care of it while I am here, in the end it will not move on out of this world with me, so my body is not truly me. I have a mind - I think, therefore I am! It is a creative center of more power that we give it credit for. It creates what our physical body will look like, what our surroundings will be and our future. I have a mind & again it is good to nurture & develop it, but it is not me. I Am a Soul! A unique, small, but important part of the One Energy source known as God (or whatever name you want to call it). I believe a way for God to be expressed more fully by my living my life in my own unique way. Put here for some purpose that I am to discover - some form of helping others - to make the world a more complete place. I Am married to this wife for sure and thus better treat her right because I will move out of this world with her - my soul. I hope to help others adopt an understanding of this to recognize what is truly important in life! I have life, I have a body, I have a mind, But ... I Am a Soul! ❤️☮️🍀

Value
What we value is often possessions, popularity, or more ways to be prideful when what has true significance is our souls. If we would take as much time caring for our souls and getting them healthy rather than focusing on fattening up all of the other areas like beauty or fortune, we would not only live a happier life but a more fulfilling and whole life as well. Surrender your soul to Jesus and trust Him with all of the other stuff and you’ll be happier than trying to feed the other areas all by yourself.

Most days I forget to love me. Are used to be so good at it. I didn’t let my clothes define me or my possessions defined me where my partner define who I was or who I was meant to be.

I need to venture back to that path for the sake of my own emotions and life.

You are the sum of all the obstacles, you overcome
No matter what life is offering be grateful for you are alive and time is passing by. Take some time wandering searching but don't keep running after things that won't truly make you happy. Life is a journey, they say. So keep on moving move to get closer to your soul, which lives within but grows apart with every move you make, chasing for anything other than true happiness. Notice that our happiness lies within - now listen carefully - take a deep breath What is it your soul trying to tell you? Once you've understand, you'll see you've been knowing it all along. Everything, you desire to become. That's what I came up with, listening to this great story.

It’s interesting how majority of people neglect the first wife. Although i think that it’s mostly in fast paced environments/societies. When i go to my hometown in Oaxaca, Mexico i am surrounded by nature i think mostly of taking care of what matters most-my soul. I think nature is tied into that.

time to take care of the 1st wife=soul
money, body, friends and family, are all important, but it will not be with us after death. i was reminded again, to take time in giving importance to the growth of my soul. it is really important to take care of our soul because it will be always our simplest and truest form.

The Fourth Wife
I’m like the merchant in that I also severely neglect my “fourth wife” which I interpreted as the quality of my inner self. Am I the person- because what makes a person if not their soul?- that I want to be? Meditation, recording my gratitude journal, and practicing mindfulness has helped to work towards changing that. And I’ve found as my “fourth wife” improves, so do my first and second

Surprised..
I learned that we, as human beings (as well as myself) don’t care about ourselves but about what we perceive our selves to be from another point of view and we changed so that other like us. This showed me that, we matter more than anything to ourselves and we should be taking so much more care than to putting ourselves down because of what others think.

The allegory of this story is somewhat disturbing and misogynistic - that a man would have multiple wives, ask them to die for him, etc. And he is "punished" by his sadness re the first three but then wife #1 says yes! What is that!? But the ending/point of it is very telling. Our souls are much more important than material possessions or status, etc.

I loved this story. Inspiring.

Reflection on the four wives
I learned that it is important to take care of our soul because we are the only ones who can. Others can have our possessions, our bodies, and our family and friends have life here. It is up to us to take care of ourselves.

wow
this has such a truth behind it and often we only focus and worry about what we look like in the eyes of others, and how we act around them. we don’t concentrate enough on who WE are, and in the end that’s the most important thing in life. we should all learn to love ourselves even if it may seem like the world is quicksand and we’re sinking faster and faster with no branches to use to pull ourselves up again. but we must remember someday that branch will blow pass us, the question is are we willing to grab it.

Hi
Feed Your Soul
This story reveals a truth that many humans don’t realize until they’re dying and it’s too late: all you will take from this world is your soul—not your possessions, not your body, not your friends. Make sure your soul is ready for eternity or the afterlife. I’m glad to have heard this story now so I can shift my priorities and take better care of my soul.

the four wives
to us, as we are alive and well, many things like wealth, appearance and family are the most important but in the long run, when we die, we will need loyalty with us, supporting us, being there for us when nothing else is, and believing in us/staying loyal to us when we aren’t loyal to it. life is more than just appearances and wealth, we need to realize how short life really is and what we can do to make the most of it

Soul searching
It’s evident that we’re existing to better ourselves and reach satisfaction. However, only temporary joy can be found. Fulfillment comes from an inner peace. Plus, enhanced well-being results from how much effort we dedicate to self-care and meditation. My soul needs some TLC

I don’t think that calm should be promoting polygamy. Just my opinion. Also, no offense to anyone but I don’t really believe in the afterlife so the story didn’t really work for me.

It’s always just us
It’s easy to forget, but in the end we only have ourselves throughout every moment of life. Our family & friends, possessions, status, they’re all very important. But we often neglect and fail to love and accept ourselves; how tragic is that, when in the end that is all we’ll have?

Unworthy
I feel unworthy to love my own soul. Not that I need to rely on other to do that for me, because I know I have a great second wife in my family and few friends. I feel that I give, pour, myself into other people and relationships that I have nothing left for my own wellbeing. I need to not be lazy and take care of my first (and third) wife. Cherish what I have now and what stays with me. Soon there won't be anything left to pour out for others.

P
Pieter
Do what is most Important
I learned that no matter what physical possessions or pleasures we may acquire in this life, it cannot bring us inner peace and happiness. Wealth and some physical aspects of life cannot nourish the soul. Connecting with ourselves and others around us spiritually, emotionally, mentally and again in some cases physically can make our soul happy. Getting to know ourselves, accepting ourselves, spending quality time with family and friends and continuously learning and nourishing our mind brings peace and happiness to the soul. Our memories, feelings, and knowledge are things our souls will always remember. There is nothing wrong with being rich and enjoying that type of lifestyle, but it should not be our main objective because they stay behind when we die. Remember the important things, the things that bring true peace and happiness to the soul.
D
Dana
It is not easy to take care of our soul, as we rarely know how to reach it
But one thing is for sure, is everything we are fighting for worth it? If we could live knowing consciously that one day it will all be gone, would we still do it? ... We waste so much energy on stuffs that won’t matter in 1,2 or 5 years....

I learned that we engulf ourselves into the materialistic things in life, we try to get our bodies to look the way we want and our friends, family and loved ones get a great deal of time during the course of our life but we don’t spend enough time on our souls. Our souls are the only thing that is going to follow us wherever we go and to make a something good of our life we should treasure it and love ourselves deep within, not just the aesthetics outside the body. I will love myself inside and out because our soul is the only thing following us when we die ❤️

The story of the four wives
This story explains self worth in a manor that I never thought possible. The four wives is very true! Excellent title for the story as well! It is just sad that, that is what it eventually comes down to in our lives is the fact we take our souls the ones we neglect the most to our grave. I suppose though the question remains how do we take care of those souls that we neglect so badly?

The story of the four wife’s
This story has taught me a lot about priorities in my life. I realize now but there was a time in my life when I put impressing others in pleasing my family and friends a head self care for my spirit mind and body I watched my happiness the manager of the time hindsight I really liked it because I put my soul last and forgot to be kind and happy I I believe it can sometimes be human nature especially in best paste fast paced modern society to devalue our potential to be kind and compassionate toward ourselves another in favor of status physical health and pleasing the people around us. Now I am trying to work toward a more balanced life where I’m not so busy and preoccupied with others then I become so critical and forget how to be kind to other people. Journey towards being less hard on myself and Martin with my priorities it’s taking a lot of time in there for you and Deb for Jan Defort and effort. However, I think it’s made me much happier. I am thankful to those who work at This App for putting the story together and reinforcing believe for myself and others to prioritize spiritual health . I am also grateful for the Community on this app for taking the time to read this post. I hope everyone is OK, happy, and well.

The Four Wives story
Something I once read... "Stop thinking of yourself as a body with a soul. Instead, think of yourself as a soul in this body." This story reminded me of that simple change of perspective

This is a very thought provoking story
The Story of the Four Wives.. it made me tearful and grieve for time wasted and importance placed on not so important things. I just lost my lover and best friend. I was with him to the last moment.. I could not keep him with me though I tried, nor could I go with him as much as I yearned to go. I weep with joy for his comfort and now pain free life and I weep for the hole in my soul that went with him, leaving only part of a person here on this earth. I question if I will ever be whole again.

Story of the four wives
This story made me tearful. We can be many wives to one husband. Supportive intellectually, the one he is proud to have on his arm, and the one who becomes one with his soul during the blending and interwinding of flesh in the act of love truly not knowing where one begins and the other ends. What a true gift to be one here on this earth to experience the sovereign mesh and joy of such a union here in this lifeof such I just lost my best friend and lover. I was with him till the very end, to his last breath.. I so desperately wanted to go with him, but could not, I was not allowed. He could only take his soul the soul that we shared. My part of that soul weeps for joy that he is now pain and worry free. I weep for the part of my soul that went with him. To think we can be one flesh bound by bonds of love so strong I fear I will never be whole again.

Love Thy Self.. now
We often feel as though we have sooOo much time that were distracted from our priorities. The only time we have for sure is NOW! We must learn that putting ourselves first is not exclusively selfish nor forbidden but essential. For we can not pour from an empty cup. . and in the end all we have is our souls to take with us to the next life. No moment is promised to come next. Love yourself now. While now still exists.

The things we think we love the most will not always be around so take time to care for what will.
