Your Soul

(Taken from the book : Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

Your soul is not inside your body.

The soul projects itself as the body and the mind. The soul finds a location in space-time, and broadcast or telecast itself through the body.

My soul is localising or expressing itself through my body.

The soul does not exist in space or time; it is beyond space and time.

The soul is transcendent. It is everywhere and nowhere at the same time. It is everywhere in general and nowhere in particular.

The life force itself is eternal; it’s unchanging; it’s all-pervading and we are that force.

We are constantly dying in order to re-create ourselves.

Happiness

(Taken from the book : Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

Happiness resides in the realm of spirit.

To find happiness is to find your soul.

To find your soul is to live from the source of lasting happiness.

 

Wilderness by Ian McCallum

Have we forgotten

That wilderness is not a place,

But a pattern of the soul

Where every tree, every bird and beast

Is a soul maker?

 

Have we forgotten

That wilderness is not a place

But a moving feast of the starts,

Footprints, scales and beginnings?

 

Since when did we become afraid of the night

And that only the bright starts count?

Or that our moon is not a moon

Unless it is full?

 

By who’s command

Were the animals

Through groping fingers,

One for each hand,

Reduced to the big and little five?

 

Have we forgotten

That every creature is within us

Carried by tides

Of earthly blood

And that we named them?

 

Have we forgotten

That wilderness is not a place

But a season

And that we are in its final hour.
