I have been exploring recently what it is like to feel me, the true me, my connection to Soul. The aspect in me that brings me back to how I felt as a child – open, free and extremely play-full, while in complete harmony and respect for everyone and everything else at the same time. When I am living from my connection with Soul, I feel my connection with God and my absolute joy of just being me!
It occurred to me that I have not always lived this way throughout my life; that I have often lived the contrasting opposite to this otherwise natural way of being. It has become far more obvious to me each day that there are actually two versions of me that I have at my will to choose to be at any given moment, on any given day, and each gives me a very, very different way of living and approaching life.
There is a part of me that is Divine. It is absolute and known within my being to the core that there is no doubt that the essence of God is in me. It feels very powerful! It feels such that, from my heart to my bones, stretching down beneath the ground, with every step I take the very earth I walk on is being graced by this presence and movement. I feel so at one and held by God’s Love that my body feels yummy all over. I can feel this connection through every tree, every breath of wind on my face and even every drop of rain.
His perfection is everywhere, His mastery of life, just an undeniable reality, and with such connection comes the enormous sense of responsibility and Brotherhood. It feels that with such love, nothing is held to be less than or greater than me. Everything and everyone is held without judgement in this love by my presence and understanding.
I can feel this connection with God throughout my veins, in my being and deep within my heart. This connection naturally offers inspiration to all of life that sees and experiences it and it is absolutely Gorgeous!
And that was only a small preview – being with my Soul is undeniably amazing.
Then there is the other side of the coin, my spirit, a part of me that chooses to live in separation of the deep connection with God and life that is naturally there within us.
When I am with my spirit and no longer feeling connected to my Soul and to God, I feel small. I feel that life is full of issues and problems and, at times, they feel so dominant that they seem to exist in every facet of my life. It feels horrible to be living from this side.
There enters an ignorance to others and to life and the very Divinity of life seems to have been replaced by just being functional. I find myself forever seeking more, not feeling complete and content within myself. I can feel there is more to life than this but it feels like I am lost in the seeking of how to get to it. Life feels mundane, a drag, and in my body I feel heavy and lethargic.
There is a constant tension running through me that is from the knowing that this form of living is simply not it.
It feels like the world’s own poles have shifted and I am the centre of it, everything is about me and, I can even convince myself that I am also God’s number one man. The worst feeling about being on this side of life is the feeling that life is always ahead and I am always dragging on behind, dragging my heels through the sand. God becomes a figurehead but no longer the livingness that I in-truth deeply miss when living in this way.
Choosing to be with my Soul has revealed to me a forever-deepening understanding about the key distinctions that exist when living from spirit or from Soul. Through Soul, I have learned that the ways of the spirit may make us feel that what is presented to us in life is much greater than what we are able to handle, but in truth this is never the case. In fact there is never anything greater than us at all when our love is brought to it. It may sound outlandish but I have found this to be absolutely true.
Life actually presents situations to us constantly to help us re-connect with more of the true side of us, our Soul.
It is clear that there is a choice to be made in each and every moment: a choice to be with our Soul and hence live our Love and Truth in and with God – or a choice to be in total ignorance of God, Truth and Soul and make our life much, much smaller than it truly is.
We are all from God. We are His Sons. To feel this as a fact we only need to stop, take a moment to be with ourselves and our bodies, perhaps through the support of The Gentle Breath Meditation®, and there is a warmth and love inside us. We all deserve this love equally from ourselves and from each other, without perfection, and hence it is the responsibility of us all to make true and wise choices as to what source we choose to live our lives from.
When I am with my Soul, there is no greater feeling than feeling that we are all One. Plumbers, gas fitters, Muslims, Jews, Christians, people of all other races and cultures, are all our equals, our Brothers, and deserve our love neither less nor more than anyone else does. I can now see clearly that the only true way forward for all of us is to become more responsible about where our quality of life is coming from as, without a doubt, nearly every single one of the problems we have today would not be there if we chose to live the love we all naturally are from, Our Soul.
Forever inspired by Serge Benhayon, a man who presents a living example to us all of what living from Soul is truly about and how simple it truly can be.
