Anatomy of my Soul

Updated on July 19, 2016

For people who had been forgotten by society

My heart sighs as I gaze at the world in view.So much pain and suffering , I cannot believe this is true.Endless misery and strife abound.Wounded world, I feel you.Your hurt is my hurt.Your grief is my grief too.

My compassion is challenged and my soul becomes the world.

My soul is a little girl mercilessly mutilated in the killing fields ,left stranded without a family.

My soul is a woman who is continously violated and suffer under the hands of a monstrous husband .

My soul is a single mother left to beg off the streets for food and shelter.

My soul is a father and husband holding a cardboard sign who lost his wife and his little girl and lost his mind while he lays them both on the ground.

My soul is a cripple on the street corner who has to beg to eat and no shade to sleep.

My soul is an old woman who lost her sight and paralyzed with a disintegrating body.

My soul is an old man, scarred by the trauma of horrific war.

My soul is a man ,woman and child who are hungry ,needy and poor.

My soul is a prisoner imprisoned by the ravages of addiction and fear of never getting out of living a tumultuous life.

My soul is a person who is helpless,hopeless, sad , afraid ,lonely and depressed.

My soul is you and your soul is mine.

Together,we become.

      I think that this pain is a pain I can relate too. It weighs heavy and sometimes I wonder why I deserve what I have when somebody in need could have it.

      But if there is one thing that has stuck with me it is A.R.K.

      Acts of Random Kindness.

      With that... I think you can help lesson the pain of the world with each step you take and it begins with the first one.

      I've always been told you can't just solve a problem by imagining it, but from that, if you look past the problem you can see the solution. To see the solution you can plan the steps to get there.

      Reducing the pain of the world is only one of those things, and from there, I think you can achieve greatness if that is what you desire.

      I like this very much and I shall support you in it for I too strive to take away the pain of the world!

      Maybe 30 years ago, sitting in the Chant Session of Siddha Yoga, I heard a man say this:

      "Tune yourself in to the Devine Hint. Be like a radio receiver. Keep tuned in. At the opportune moment, the solution to a problem will arise out of the problem itself. If you are not tuned in you will miss it."

      I have never forgotten this.
