Soul and its food 

The food of the soul is love and relationships. Money is also needed to take care of one near and dear people. Hence, material happiness is also necessary to calm one’s mind and love others.

Thoughts, howsoever good, cannot bring any results if the steps are not done with seriousness. There may be circumstances not favourable, but one must make the events helpful with positive thoughts. So it is for the individual to identify what the person wants to choose and prioritize whether the talent or passion.
