But if not, Be you content to lend your patience to us, And we shall jointly labor with your soul To give it due content.

While I would absolutely NOT like for a man like Claudius to labor with my soul – I am intrigued by the idea of someone with the ability to do that. What if there were soul laborers? Or soul whisperers? Perhaps who could bypass your conscious intentions and just speak directly to your soul.

Actually, we do have these people. They’re called artists. Not every artist speaks to every soul but there are artists who speak to many at once. There are artists who perhaps only speak to one soul but even that is valuable. There are many artists who labor with my soul. Remedios Varo, Robyn Schiff, Shakespeare, Joni Mitchell and on and on.
My soul laborers.
