Young souls exist in every walk of life. It’s fun to pick out cartoon characters and film stars that embody the qualities of the young soul. Young souls have not experienced as many incarnations as old souls and therefore they express a lighter quality than the older souls who have been knocking around on the physical plane for many lifetimes.
Mickey Mouse is a young soul, while Donald Duck is an old soul. Mickey has the optimism that is characteristic of a soul that has not been witness to many adversities in other lives. Donald Duck, on the other hand, has that curmudgeonly character that can be an expression of an old soul who has seen and done it all.
Brad Pitt is a young soul, with that look in his eye of many beautiful empty rooms that have yet to be populated by experience. Angelina Joli, on the other hand, is an old soul, who looks right through you and bores into the core of your being with one glance of her penetrating eyes. She is not lightweight and you feel that, regardless of your personal opinions about her life choices.
Kim Kardashian is young soul, looking to complete herself and create a perfect image within the context of this culture. Her marriages and weddings portray the light touch of the younger souls who do not feel or think deeply. Her sister Kourtney is an old soul, whose observations about life have a wider outlook, often including global suffering and the bigger picture. And also, characteristic of the older soul, she can have a sadly realistic outlook because of past life experiences and knowledge.
Many examples exist in music too. Adele is an old soul. Often there is a tinge of suffering detectable when we meet an old soul that they convey through their words and sounds. Michael Jackson was a young soul. Perhaps that is why he felt most comfortable around children. Elton John is an old soul, John Lennon, and Janis Joplin. All of them had the qualities of old souls. Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, and Madonna are all young souls. Can you tell why?
