The Soul sails your boat through this life and into the Beyond with barely a sigh at the body’s passing. She is without fear, and has nothing to lose because She will never die. She is our most precious friend, although we are not always Hers. Her language is that of the deep, and we must listen closely to the Figurehead, who articulates the otherwise unfathomable, a guide to those who learn to listen. So ignore the Figurehead’s messages at your peril: lose your Soul, and you are left to drift, the speech of the sea and what lies beneath lost to you, the treasures of the deep diminished to an obscure and unreadable pattern of waves.
