With the birth of science, may people stopped believing in immortality, which suggests that they also stopped believing in the soul. So if someone says, “I’m here only once, and when I die, that’s all there is,” it’s highly unlikely this person is going to believe in the soul or take a discussion of the soul seriously. But if someone says, “You’re looking particularly soulful tonight,” that language hums in us. It seems to me soul is still our touchstone word for what’s authentic and vital. So if someone says, “I’ve lost my soul,” what I hear is, “I’ve lost my authenticity. I’ve lost my spark. I’ve lost my connection to the sacred.” ~Phil Cousineau
at times, we need an overstuffed bag of practices, simply to move and shift….sometimes we are the open sky, beckoning to be spread thin and wide while the tiny moon holds us up……
inquiry for today~ when you are separate from everything, how do you know the moon holds your soul?
We’re here only to teach love. When we’re doing that, our souls are singing and dancing. When we remind ourselves that we are spiritual beings, that life and love are the flame eternal, that’s when our soul is nourished. ~Gerald Jampolsky
