Anima Mundi means soul of the world. It is the belief that there is one ethereal, organizing soul, acting upon all of the universe. Those who believe it, believe that the one soul of the world controls the universe, similar to how the mind controls the human body. Anima Mundi is similar to a form of pantheism, (the belief that the universe taken or conceived of as a whole, is God). Soul of the universe philosophy is frequently used by those accepting that doctrine as well.
There are many people who do not think of themselves as religious yet they are quite spiritual. They tell people that they are atheists, leaving religious adherents aghast. But religious advocates should not be quick to judge them as nonbelievers. In reality, most of them probably do believe. Very much so. They believe in the awe and beauty of life. They believe there is something out there, they just don’t know what it is and they don’t believe in pledging allegiance to it.
