You’re such an amazing person. Each one of you.
But has the burden of obligations dulled the sheen of your sparkles?
Do you feel a bit scattered in the frenzy of daily hassles?
Re-ignite your inner fire.
Awaken the layers of your Soul season by season.
Invigorate your actions in the Spring.
Soak in the Light in the Summer.
Ponder the ancient wisdom in the Fall.
Be in touch with your feelings in the Winter.
Soulful sparks are…
“better than chocolate, safer than antidepressants”,
chime in the readers.
WHO ARE YOU?
How do you get in touch with your Soul, the spiritual seed in you?
You’re more than your physical appearance and belongings. You’re more than your titles and station in society. You’re more than your beliefs and habits.
You may know what you aren’t. But how do you find out who you truly are? Perhaps what’s needed isn’t just to demolish the old structures, but also clear the lingering dust, debris, dross. Only then you can find the true Source, and notice that the Light within is part of the greater Cosmic Light. You can discern that in the Cosmic Light there’s your own unique column of Light, connecting your Soul to your Highest Self.
How do you get in touch with your Soul? How do you nourish this spiritual seed in your human heart?
The soul of the Earth is expressed through the seasons of nature. As modern humans, we tend to ignore the seasons; we adjust the climate of our surroundings with heaters and air conditioners. But what if we tune in at a higher, deeper level, and connect with the Earth’s seasons to find our own unique flow in life?
I encourage you to take time for weekly, nay, daily contemplation to commune with your Soul. Create a quiet space where you can tune into the insights of the Spirit stored in your beingness.
Human souls breathe with the Earth’s Soul, and awaken when touched by its expressions in the seasons of nature. We’re bathed in the sunshine during the day; we’re caressed by the Moon, planets, and stars at night. We feel the monthly lunar cycle in the flow of our bodily fluids, women and men alike. The Sun’s celestial energy colors the Earth as the Sun passes through the constellations on its journey through the four key positions in the dance between the Sun and the Earth: Winter and Summer solstices, Vernal and Autumnal equinoxes.
Oh, how many of the celestial dances have we, the modern humans, forgotten! The »advanced« hum of technology pushed these magickal experiences into the shadows. We stay up late at nights, not to watch the stars, but to stare at the television and computer screens. We can’t even see much of the planets and stars in the big cities anyway. We’re sealed in office and residential buildings with artificial lights and climates: heat lodges in the Winter, ice cubicles in the Summer. And most of the time, we can’t even open the windows: »For your own safety«, we are advised.
Solstice, equinox? You mean those funny stone structures in England? Haven’t we delegated these strange practices to religion so that we can have more free days on Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and other holidays? Yet, the Manhattanhenge, or Manhattan Solstice, is becoming a new urban festival when the incessant traffic stops twice a year at sunset, and people stand in the middle of the Big Apple’s cross streets to capture the setting Sun on their electronic devices.
The more the über technological society tries to structure our lives into rigid boxes, the more we yearn for organic flow of nature. Hopefully, there’ll be some left when we finally wake up en masse. And we’re waking up! We, a human race in the curious experiment of merging divine and animal capacities.
