A priest once said to Meister Eckhart: “I wish that your soul were in my body.”  To which he replied:

“You would
really be foolish.  That would get nowhere – it would accomplish as little as for your soul to be in my body.  No soul can really do anything except through the body to which it is attached.”

From :  Meister Eckhart, A Modern Translation by Raymond B. Blackney, New York, Harper & Row, 1941.
