"Although physically small, people are powerful in their soul. The head of the soul looks up, while its feet are planted on solid ground. The soul can put into motion both exalted and common things. Whatever it does echoes through the universe, because its inner humanity has the power to accomplish such amazingly kind things. A person's physical body is bigger than their literal heart, just as the soul is stronger than the body. This is what I mean: A person's heart lies hidden within their body, just as the physical body is surrounded by and hidden in the soul's powers, which cover the entire globe. Your body is in your soul, not your soul in your body. That's how you exist in God's knowledge and why you're able to do your best for God spiritually and in worldly matters." Hildegard of Bigen, Carmen Acevedo Butcher, pp. 153-154, (quoting Hildegard of Bigen).
