When I think about the soul, I think about Silence, Stillness, Solitude and perhaps the most important - Simplicity. I could list all that comes between us and our respective souls: twenty-four hour news, busy schedules, people pleasing, stuff, stuff and more stuff...but if you’re like I was, you don’t need a list, you’re living it.
Our bodies (brain included) have not evolved as fast as the demands of modern life. We’re not biochemically, physiologically, emotionally or spiritually designed for these times. Those “S” words are more than lovely notions, they’re essential for our health and humanity. To be disconnected from our soul is to be disconnected from our purpose, our potential and our joy. The world, however, is desperately needing us to tap into our greatest of all resources.
But how do we approach that part of us we’ve neglected for so long? Where do we start? Clearing the way can be like weeding a garden… or it can be like a raptor ransacking a nest in one fell swoop. I’ve done both.
