How Our Soul Friends Will Save the World
We are living in a time of fear. But there is more, much more, to life than fear.
This fear is epitomized by this election year, 2016. The media, the politicians, the military, all who hold power by money or position are feeding us fear. Now is the time we each need a soul friend.
What is a soul friend? A soul friend does not debate, preach, teach, or even necessarily like You -- the You that is ego, personality, the mask that you wear to hide your soul from the world. A soul friend listens; a soul friend believes in you, and guides you towards knowing who you really are. A soul friend always believes that you are enough. A soul friend shines a light into your dark corners and illuminates your essential goodness.
A soul friend shows you the way to yourself. Like a mother bird, a soul friend coaxes you to the edge of the nest and when you're ready, gives you that push and you learn to fly.
You instinctively know when you've found a soul friend. You feel the compatibility of your soul paths, and you find it easy to drop your defenses and create a direct path to your heart and soul. Feeling the urge to grow into this other, you simultaneously find yourself growing into yourself more deeply.
Aligning oneself with someone who is aligned with the universe brings a clarity of purpose and connection with the sacred.
A soul friendship can be a mentor, a teacher, a relative, a spouse, or like I said, someone who doesn't even like you. Soul friendship is the recognition of what is, not the creation of something from an idea or dream. And I believe it can heal the planet, one person at a time.
Once you've embarked on this soul journey, all the rest becomes clear. Who to marry (or not), who to live with/near or work with, what to wear today, what career to embrace, where to live, where to go today, what to think, who to vote for, and why you should get out of bed today. Without this soul work, life is chaos.
