Heart And Soul

There is a principle of life that we call the soul. It is said to be the spiritual part of us, the spiritual nature of humanity. We often regard the soul as a distinct and discrete entity, a small piece of who we are. For ages man has wondered as to the location of the soul, and it is often associated with the mind, that place where thoughts and ideas are said to arise from, and more often associated with the heart, that place where love and compassion are said to arise from. It would be interesting to imagine that our souls are present in both our hearts and our minds, and more. It would be interesting to imagine that we are wholly our souls and are souls are wholly us, the only distinction being that our souls are that aspect of us that is forever untroubled.

We may sometimes worry about this part of us that is the soul; what will happen to it when the body goes? If we die before we wake, which direction will it take? We may worry about our souls but our souls, being untroubled, do not worry about anything. They are just fine, so at some level, some fundamental level, perhaps that of the heart, so must we be.

When we are down, we may say that our hearts and minds are troubled, troubled down to our very souls. But being aware, as we are, that our souls are by their nature, untroubled, maybe it is our souls that we should look towards for comfort and uplifting, becoming alive to all that untroubledness. Yes, we can imagine that we are our souls and our souls are us, and that our souls are trouble free, for how could we imagine otherwise when we see the soul's powerful connection to the infinitely untroubled Spirit.


Soul And Spirit

When we see that the soul is connected to, and a part of, that higher power that is Spirit, we can see that the soul is more than what we may have thought. Instead of looking at it as a small part of us, we can look at it as a large part of us, a very large part, moving through the world doing the things that Spirit does, and in Spirit, only good things are possible. We are kind and loving, patient and forgiving. Our souls move before us, bringing smiles to faces, spreading cheer and good will, and our souls trail us, leaving behind feelings of peace and well being, With a little faith, we can become our souls and be bearers of good will and cheer, and with a little faith, we can become our souls and feel for ourselves the peace and well being. With a little faith, we can realize that we already are our souls,

Faith is believing that these things are so, but it is more. Faith is remembering and practicing. We become alive to our souls when we practice being bearers of good will and well being. We do this with cheerful words and kindly actions, friendly greetings and wishing well so longs. We become alive to our souls when we remember that we are powerful spiritual beings in this physical world, yet not at odds with it. The sprit embraces and enhances the world, making it good, and through our souls, we experience this goodness; through our souls, we too embrace and enhance.

When we remember and when we practice, our faith leads to trust, and trust is letting go, letting ourselves become our souls, our forever untroubled souls.

God And Soul

We have been told that we were made in the image and likeness of God. We naturally believe this to mean that we look like God, and it is comforting to know that God can have a human face, a face that smiles upon us. But what if there is also a deeper level of meaning to this idea of image and likeness, a spiritual level, a level where we, as our souls, share the qualities of Spirit, the qualities of beauty and love, the qualities that are good, the qualities that are God. We share God's untroubledness. We may not always feel this way, but through our trust and our faith, we grow, becoming that better part of us, that higher part of us, that part of us that is our soul.


Soul Untroubled

We are our souls. We have always been our souls. When we were infants we knew this well, and it is probably the only thing we did know, because we could not physically tell the difference between ourselves and a hole in the wall, but we knew how to smile. We may have appeared to be small, but being our souls, we were really quite large. As we grew, we grew out of some things and we may have forgotten about such things as soul, relegating it to some little thing hidden inside us. As we grew further, we grew out of more things, and as we became too big for our breeches, we grew smaller to our souls. It may now be time to grow back into them.

We are our souls and our souls are untroubled, and this may be sometimes difficult to see or feel because of the troubles we often experience in our lives. There may be situations or circumstances that bring us worry and fear, stress and anxiety, frustration and disappointment. We may have some physical ailments, or some not so healthy habits, as well as some hurtful memories. We may find ourselves at times being impatient and unkind. We may become angry. We become angry with others, angry with ourselves, angry with God. The best we can do is to stop and be still, letting go, turning our attention towards all the good things, cherishing them. We put our faith to work by remembering that God is good and that the world is a good place. We remind ourselves that soul and spirit do not suffer from these troubles. We put our faith to work by practicing kindness and patience. We are patient with ourselves; we are patient with others; we are patient with God. We turn inward to our souls, and as we do so, we may catch a glimpse of all the good that is inside us, the good that we are made of. Looking outward to Spirit, we may catch a glimpse of all the good that surrounds us. We move forward, even if means just taking some small steps on that feel good path. Unhurried, we begin to become more alive to the freedom, the freedom that is the untroubledness of our souls.

Our souls are free and so are we, trouble free and, in a way, perhaps, free from gravity. Being alive to our souls is rising above, rising above, even if just for the moment, our weaknesses and maladies, as in a flying dream, soaring skyward to see even more of the good that surrounds us, then floating back to the good earth. We do this while we are awake and alive, the untroubled soles of our feet firmly planted. Balanced and focused, we see direction. So we continue to grow within our souls, and to this growth may there be no limit, as we join in that upward spiral dance with soul and spirit.
