I believe that there is a light inside every human. But sometimes, the darkness overtakes the light… and they lose their way.
Right now, in this moment, all humans are united in thinking about the same thing – the virus. We’re more consciously connected than ever before in human history. Now is the time to take that connected consciousness and turn it from fear to love. When we do that, the old divisions will crumble and we will step more fully into the new earth.
Ultimately, the darkness is no match for the light. So keep shining your lights, my friends. Keep pumping kindness and compassion into the world. Keep replacing fear with love. Do this not from a place of self-sacrifice, but from a place of heart-centered empowerment. In the end, goodness will prevail.
What is a soul? There are so many definitions and theories and specifics, it can be overwhelming! It’s a huge topic, and worthy of all the attention and rumination is has received over the course of time.
But I think it’s really quite simple. Your soul is your eternal self. It’s the part of you that existed before this body was born. It’s the part of you that will continue to exist after this body dies.
Your eternal self isn’t bound by linear time, so it isn’t limited to just this one physical body that you’re using to read these words. It experiences life in many physical forms, in many different time periods, concurrently.
But even though your soul is eternal, that doesn’t make it better than this physical body that you’re now inhabiting. “Better” is a judgment, and souls don’t judge. Treat your physical body with the love, respect, and kindness with which you’d treat a precious loved one. Your physical self and your eternal self are on this crazy life journey together. Enjoy the ride!
If you’re moving along a spiritual path, you’ve likely wondered, “What’s my mission?” I was kind of obsessed with this question. Like, for years. I wanted all the details. What is it? What will it look like? Where will it take me? Who will be there? I had so many questions… and got increasingly frustrated as time passed without receiving any answers.
But I’ve come to realize that my mission isn’t about doing, but about being. I let go of the questions, and instead opened up to the feel of my mission. And it came to me that compassion and joy are my mission. And this doesn’t necessarily mean doing any particular activity – though acts of joy and compassion are wonderful – it’s really about being joyful and compassionate in each moment.
This isn’t easy. I’m human. I have fears and judgments. I make mistakes. But each new moment is a reset – I have the opportunity to realign with the essence of compassion and joy over and over again, all day, every day. This starts with positive, loving feelings toward myself and my body, and spreads from there.
So instead of asking what your mission is, try calming your mind and opening to the feel of your mission. The answer may be simpler than you think.
