It loves the books you read and the fresh spring air that you draw into your lungs. Your soul loves your kitchen dance. That dance you do to your YouTube playlist while you cook.
Even when life isolates you because of a global pandemic or because of lack of understanding in your relationship you still generate love. It’s the soul love mentioned above. Many times the fact of soul love is little consolation when we are dealing with mid-life mayhem. Know that to lead ourselves and our family day after day we apply belief in the soul that pushes and pulls us.
Like in the emergence of spring, there is a Green power in us that gives birth, creates new and finds a way. It allows us to see the invisible. Which in fact is not invisible just not yet happened.
Accompanied by our soul we bring potential into being. In the process The New You blooms. The New You for what is clean and true and in the moment.
Data is the new oil – they say. Businesses can always use more data to refine their algorithm results. Corporations pay big money for your data = big data. Or they just syphon it off other websites. But do you need more data or information? Or rather more inspiration; More passion?
Yes to inspiration. Yes to passion. To resist the tyranny of big data we need references, resources, reasons and examples to educate ourselves about our sense of meaning. We all have a need for connection that runs 24/7 in each of us under the surface. Call it purpose, passion, meaning, calling, urge, mission – they are all asking you to connect what you encounter in daily life to what you are looking for on the inside. The inside is your devotional life – whether you think that is your thing or not. Since you have a soul your life is asking for some personal religion.
We need ways to elevate our source of references and reasons to get perception that make sense with daily life. We can read really old books or ask really old people a question and listen.
We need good reasons, enduring intentions and guiding sentiments to help in locating ourselves on our ongoing soul trajectory.
Crucial resources include maintaining a healthy foundation in the body, mind and emotions: find a moment of peace to couple with a moving meditation. Regularly distinguish between habit, routine andritual – and use them for your growth or phase them out. Wonder about a higher purpose, be of service, teach, mentor and be mentored, tell stories, volunteer…
Because the younger have more knowledge in our wired world we are seeing an ancient template for wisdom resurge.
It can be seen when ‘young earth mama’ Greta Thunberg is begging adults to be elders. To have more than just harvested money and ridden the emotional roller coaster of society’s whims.
Thunberg is highlighting that adults have a distinct role in using wisdom from their life experience to be responsible. Some of us are responsible in our smaller communities like marriage, family, industry, and that internal community of inner lives (think of the soul and spirit). Other’s lack of respondability will reveal them to be a toxic disaster even at the personal level.
Nowadays we are seeing that what we want at the community level has wide and long lasting impact on a much larger scale. Adults need to be proactive in the larger community because it seems to the planet Earth and the current youth that we don’t care.
To some extent that is true. It might be explained by seeking the missing education. The education of a journey of development whether that be human or planetary. We are designed as humans to wanta spiritualized life yet we end up with monetized lives as are inspiration of success.
The wisdom of a vision quest or way of the ancients is missing. And leaves us wanting.
Leaves our soul longing.
Perception is a residue of higher connection. It’s like a second education. In cultural terms this urge to keep learning in each different stage of life gets labeled and monetized as ‘Self Help’. With a plethora of far fetched ideas for personal development from instant gurus combined with easy to publish e-books the natural urge to grow has become a joke. Yet it is exactly Self Help that will attract the perception that Ms. Thunberg expects.
Help yourself to books that have bits of wisdom hidden in the stories, quotes, photos, poems. Help yourself to a retreat where you meet your pathway to eldership. Help yourself to the well-being and peace that nature effuses and where perception abounds.
It’s natural for children and adults to have elders in their lives. It’s not a given that you or I do the work to rise into elderness. I’m not about to tell Ms. Thunberg I’m not going to apply myself. Are you?
Rise up old man!
Be the elder you were born to be. Offer the next generation guidance and resilience. Hope and finesse.
When their Fulfillment becomes your Satisfaction. That is one of the Magical Arts of Love.
Remember the Art of War where the local administration is in charge of the decisions which the army carries out for the benefits of the community to live in peace. ‘In Peace’ feels great for us personally. But it is the impact at the human level that this environment of peace permits the soul to do it’s work. The soul is childlike in its enthusiasm, it’s readiness to enhance the human experience; your life.
Your soul loves its job. Your soul loves being your soul.
Your soul loves when you: connect with the planet; breathe in and feel part of the moment; sense you are in the flow of now. This can elevate you into your Devotion Emotion. This is our Yellow Power. This is loving and being loved.
Loving the belief in life’s trajectory; being loved by the higher realms that our source of light.
How do I create light for others like the higher realms do for me? This is the religious roller coaster of getting devotional and then re-integrating the elevated you with daily life. This is our fabulous challenge. And this is what helps us develop into a fabulous person.
Your soul loves its job. Your soul loves being your soul.
This is the Red section. For lack of eloquence it can be plainly stated your Soul wants routine. It wants you to get stuff done so there is a sense of realization that can then be repeated. In the same action you get satisfaction. Your Red Art is to seek experience that delivers soul realization and personal satisfaction.
Find a way to make your seeking repeatable. And fun, intriguing, fruitful, inspiring. Find a way to share – other than Facebook. What are the many things you want to learn as a result of seeking for your soul.
Understand your Magnetic Strip. Like the black strip on your credit card that identifies your resources. What is your magnetic strip? What resources do you have because of your soul? What resources do you provide your soul? Like higher emotional content that is you wanting something greater than you. That can be in family or business or community.
It’s a beautiful day today. I don’t know about the weather where you are but here after the dawn rain the clouds are breaking up and the wind is gaining strength quickly. It’s a beautiful spring day. In leaps and bounds the bulbs are sprouting over night in an announcement of bright yellow, cozy little petals of purple and beds of Bluebells. Smell this year’s version of fresh, the release of the water in the soil gifting us mud. You can practically taste the minerals in the air. Now, all of this Earthly excitement reminded me of something.
A few months ago I posted about Photosynthesis. Yours. Here is the link right here.
How does your warmth loosen up the potential in others; so they want to grow and flourish and share? How do you transform raw materials into growth? Whether at work, with your spouse (in good times and in bad …), with your children. Could be a crisis, an opportunity, an idea, a mission, a problem, a conflict, teamwork, a life vision. It might be something that is not your responsibility or it actually is your time to step up in a new stage in life. Then again it could be how you find Fulfillment as a Woman or get Satisfaction as a Man that is a catalyst for others. What is it that you want that is so powerful that it can make simple ingredients into new life?
For a flower there may be pests, concrete, animals, humans helping or hindering, flood or drought and disease that challenge existence. Still they are able to struggle to germinate, sprout, grow and bloom with colour and fragrance. What does your plasma of possibility contain that you receive whatever conditions the situation presents and turn it into growth? That’s you. That’s your photosynthesis. Your ability to synthesize yesterday and today with tomorrow. Your creativity with the light, you shine into the hard to reach places and in difficult scenarios.
Your photosynthesis is you – clean and true and in the moment. Your Soul-powered-mind focused on making life possible in you and causing the same in those around you.
