Every Soul I See Is Beautiful

Perhaps it’s because I’ve been humbled by life time and time again . . . or because I’m getting older and wiser . . . or because I’ve been feeling more vulnerable lately . . . or because I am getting more adept at seeing the underlying unity of everyone and everything.

Whatever the reason, the first thing I’ve been noticing about people is not their strengths but their weaknesses . . . and their weaknesses are beautiful. Why? I now know that behind every flaw, every insecurity, every fragility lies the doorway to growth, understanding and enlightenment.

When you feel strong and in control, your attention is completely focused on the external world and your ego assumes command. When you feel weak and insecure, you’re more likely to think, There’s got to be more to life than this, a question that naturally leads to introspection and self-awareness.

In our interview for my book, Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, quadriplegic motivational speaker Jim MacLaren told me:

Having to admit to my own dependency and vulnerability actually made me more powerful. Why? It dawned on me that acknowledging your wounds and vulnerabilities, and becoming more conscious and knowledgeable about yourself actually makes you a stronger person. For me, the journey has always been about going deeper and becoming more of a human being.

Honor your weakness, your fear, your self-doubt. They are what make you fully human . . . and exploring your humanity is the gateway to transcendence and a richer, more fulfilling life.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.



sixty-seconds-coverPhil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed.

  1. ArrVee Says:

    our weaknesses are the handicaps God assigns to us alongside our talents, to make for interesting interactions with each other in this life. We can use our strengths not necessarily to make up for our weaknesses, but to help others where they need help, and we in turn benefit from the strengths of others.

    Just like in macroeconomics, where it’s not the amount of collective wealth per se that matters, but how it circulates in the market and creates value, our unique combination of individual strengths and weaknesses create healthy flows of goodwill among us, and that is what matters.

  2. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Yes, ArrVee, if we were all strong and perfect, no learning would take place and no one would need help from anyone else. Our flaws help us connect more intimately with others.

    I thank you for this. I have to go to a campaign event for my daughter tonight. For the past few years I have been averse to socializing, almost to the point of agoraphobia. I read today’s post from you, and I thought, so what if I’m slightly agoraphobic? It’s okay if I’m a little anxious before I leave and for the first 15 minutes of the event. I’ll be fine once I find someone to talk to — someone with weaknesses like me.

  4. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Good for you, almarose! Yes, we all think we’re the only one who’s not perfectly at ease, when in reality there are many others who are thinking much the same thing for all sorts of different reasons.
