April 2012: Soul Pursuits

“Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Exploring the relationship between body/mind and heart/soul can lead us to a greater understanding of what may at first appear to be conflicting needs and desires. As we learn how to balance the needs of the body with the desires of the heart and soul, we come to see that it is less about balancing and more about dancing. We find that though it appears that the "he" inside of us, our mind may be doing the leading, in truth, if we actually want to be where we have lead ourselves, then it is the "she" within, our heart and soul, whose subtle cues "he" must read and protect. It is in this way that we reconcile and align ourselves with our higher and often hidden purpose.

“I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.” ~ Vincent van Gogh

We sit on the precipice of a great golden age that is about to explode onto the planet. This has already been quietly building behind the scenes, bit by bit, little by little as we have made the decision to follow the instruction of the soul and pursue our dreams. Many of us decided to go with the soul after realizing that what we once thought was "secure" wasn't secure at all, so we might as well get some real security out of life. And that real security is brought about in the assurity that what we are creating is something that truly matters to us and pays dividends of intrinsic soul satisfaction all the time.

“You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.” ~C.S. Lewis

We are coming into a time of the re-unification of the Divine Feminine and Masculine forces. Although we may think we have learned about these forces by observing the interaction between men and women, it really has little to do with men and women per se, for this unification applies to us all equally. Quite simply, it means that we are now going to be integrating our body/mind with our heart/soul, bringing all the intangibles back into play in our everyday lives. It means that we will use what we have created during this particularly mind identified time in history to help us bring back the magic, the things that really bring us joy, peace, harmony, serenity, fun, camaraderie, creativity, inspiration, connections, cooperation, bliss and love. This can only lead us to more of what our heart of hearts is really craving; deeper, more loving, soul connected relationships. It's time to completely re-focus our intentions around our heart's desires. No more settling. We've finally cleared the way, as we've purified and nurtured our hearts. It has never been a better time to follow the pursuits of the soul.
