"The Way of the Soul" is the fourth book written by Dr. Ana Maria Ducuta, and is a continuation of the book "The Road to Us", published in 2020. After researching and studying in his doctoral thesis in history the mechanisms of functioning of the mind and soul (as they are presented by experimental psychologists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries), Ana continued to seek the answer in quantum physics and psychology, as well as ancient Eastern philosophy on how does this soul work? Do we all have a soul, why is it important?
The book is a journey to the center of our being, in the heart of emotion and thought where the soul takes its juice, and tries to respond to the eternal search for that something we want in our lives, but we do not know how to identify it and where to find it. luam.
Why go on the "Path of the Soul"? Because from any other path we start, we reach the road with priority and one way: the Way of our Soul, the reason for our existence, the most precious joy and the only experience of eternity that we have in the past, but eternal life when ... it's with and about the soul.

The balance of thought and feeling
We often say "I let you think about it" or "I give you a little time to think." Why don't we say "I let you feel this", "I give you a little time to feel"?
Because we are taught that something is right if it is thought, not felt. Because it seems to us that a correct and impartial reasoning is that of the mind, exclusively. But what do we do if our reasoning is correct but does not match the feeling? What do we do if we know something and feel something else?
The balance between what I think and what I feel is a priority in my emotional evolution. Specifically, there must be a connection between my thoughts and emotions, they must not contradict each other. That is, to do not only what I think, not just what I feel, but my thinking and feeling to work together when I make decisions.
Thus, when my feeling misleads me (I am emotionally dependent on a toxic person, I feel that I love him) my thinking can save me (I rationally understand that it hurts me, I analyze my feeling and I see that it is caused by an emotional trauma , which, once I become aware, I begin to heal). Likewise, when my thinking misleads me (I am extremely rigid, I judge people by labels and stereotypes), my feeling can save me (I relate to others as souls, through my own soul and let them let me discover from their feeling, and do not stop their access to my prejudice).
