Choosing to live "soul first," is a consious choice. It can be costly in this world of people living "body first." Choosing to consider and (hopefully) prioritize my eternal, invisible soul puts me in a miniscule minority in every local and family social situation.
The way I understand the Bible, this is what we're supposed to do, or at least experiment with doing it whenever we remember. The fact that most of the people living in my part of the United States think that talking out loud to God is a sign of mental illness will not stop me. It cannot impair my intention to grow in soul-first living, or to continue to share with anyone who is also choosing to experiment with soul-first living.
For me, the first step is to gain soul-first understanding, possibly my primary task in this life. This week's Parsha Bo is about redemption, so that's why I'm contemplating redemption from automatic body-first thinking and acting. Rabbi Yitzchak Schwartz says, "Parsha Bo is about how each of us can cope with our own Egypt, any situation in our lives which is strangling us or holding us back."
