Life is ultimately a journey of soul evolution, that divine fragment that lies within us. Just as our personality has particular goals and desires, so does the soul. Each of us has our own particular and unique soul urges that will try to express and manifest in our lives.Often our soul’s interests and concerns are completely different to those of our personality. It is not interested in what you want to accumulate, create or achieve. It isn’t interested in marriage or any other relationship you may have except in how that relationship allows you to become more aware of your true self. All relationship is a mirror that your soul holds up to you, reflecting back your own distortions. The areas to work on and sort out. Its only interest lies firmly in those experiences, whether beautiful or painful that awaken you to it.
The soul is a vast mysterious awareness. The highest and grandest part of your self. Larger than life because it survives beyond your life. An essence apart from form or substance. A tiny speck of a vast whole that is all souls wrapped into one. The soul is love, energy, beauty and eternity. There is no other. The feeling of falling in love is a tiny glimpse of your soul’s natural state. A taste that will leave you searching, usually in all the wrong places, for the rest of your life.
Our soul asks us to become ourselves fully; constantly putting our emotional work before us, usually in the form of our closest most precious relationships. It is relentless, continually demanding we refine and purify ourselves until we are peeled down to our bare essence. Seeing unity rather than duality in all life around us.
As you face your betrayal of others or are yourself betrayed by someone you love; as layer after layer of your fantasies, dreams, and hopes are stripped from you, the soul will quietly whisper in your ear…
Will you listen?
In going through the darkest and most difficult experiences…we can allow ourselves to stretch! To our amazement, we do not break but instead we can grow, if only we allow it. Slowly everything can become just a little bit easier. Instead of thinking we can only ever love one person or that we are so battered that we can never love again, our hearts can open to life and to the world in a new and deeper way. Allowing our soul to continue forward once more into endless and mysterious fields of possibility.
