Am I a body with a soul or a soul with a body?

Some people identify more with their body but know they have a soul. Other people identify more with their soul but realize they have a body.

In everyone’s life many dilemmas will arise: “Should I do this or that?” “Should I say something or not?” “What are my highest priorities and what are much lower priorities?” “How should I spend my time right now?” “Should I do this act of kindness for someone who needs it, or should I do what I was planing to do to have a good time?” Someone who sees himself as a soul with a body will resolve these dilemmas in a much more elevated way.

From ‘Building your self-image and the self-image of others (Rabbi Pliskin)’
