Spring Cleaning for the Soul

I awaken from the slumber of winter.

Time to blow away the cobwebs of worries, doubts and fears
Brush off the dust of resentments and regrets
The past is the past

It’s time to open the windows and let the light in
The light of God and the might of God!
I am coloured by the power of His presence.

The light within once again sparkles
Bringing love, peace and power within
And leaving a beautiful fragrance of happiness for all to share

Let each day be Spring!

 

Om Shanti

Parallel Universe

I live in a parallel universe. One is the physical world in which I am the person I know with the personality, habits and role that I play. The other existence is in the universe within – my own inner world.

At each moment these two universes and two existences of myself are connected by the decisions I make. Every decision and therefore every action that follows affects both my inner self as well as my outer personality.

Silence and stillness are the natural nature of I the soul, I crave for them and search for them, yet they seem so out of reach. Why is this?

With every decision I make I give priority to sustaining the needs of the role and the personality that I am. The needs of the soul get overlooked. Who is this personality I have come to be subservient to? Who is it that consistently takes priority over the deepest and most sacred part of me, the soul?

It is the ego – the one that needs to be recognised, understood and respected. The one that has to be always right and win no matter what the cost. In trying to ensure the ego is sustained I renounce my peace, my happiness and more.

With courage let me decide to give priority to sustaining of the soul, the spirit that I am.

 

Om Shanti

Spiritual Pilgrim

an_incredible_journey

I am a spiritual pilgrim, a spiritual traveller, travelling through time.

The journey is long – it seems to go on and on to beyond.

Where am I going to?
A gentle response, from deep within the soul, utters – It is a pilgrimage from myself back to me.

It is an incognito journey I take to find myself. A journey I take alone, that no-one else can see or understand.
It happens in this moment, and in every moment that passes by. The journey is rooted within myself – within the active experience of my thoughts, feelings and emotions.
The happiness and joy, the stress and anger, the friend and the enemy, the bonus and the challenge – these, and more, are all scenes and side scenes that I pass through each day. They are on the journey but are not the destination.

I must journey on and just let them pass…and they will. I don’t need to pack them up and carry them on my journey – that would just be excess baggage that will make the journey more difficult.

Let me not stop. Let me let go and continue my pilgrimage back to me.

Om Shanti

Body or Soul?

i-believe

When I am in the consciousness of the body, this role and personality that is visible, then everything is based on a physical reality. My happiness, love and even my security comes from a physical dimension.

All that is physical is temporary. Even this body is temporary and one day it will no longer remain. I therefore remain in the shadow of fear – the fear of losing that which I have or the fear on not achieving that which I ‘need’.

In the consciousness of soul I am connected to the spirit. My needs are fulfilled from a spiritual source within the self and from the Supreme – both of which are eternal and immortal. I become detached from all that is physical. I am here and I use the physical but there is no dependency and hence there is no fear of losing anything. I remain stable and content.

Let me learn to remain soul conscious.

 

Om Shanti

Solitude

InheritenceI am drawn in to solitude. Somehow, within solitude I find comfort and a freedom for the self.
When I sit in solitude, alone……. I create a world made up of me and everything that I am. It is where I feel comfortable. Not that it is always a place of great happiness and joy, but even a lonely one of hopelessness and self-pity. It is a world I create and one which is limited by my own imagination and perception. A place I want to be and am ‘comfortable’ being in.
Is there another type of solitude that I can experience?
Solitude in the subtle company of God – this is a totally different space and experience. It is an environment in which there is power, attainment and happiness. All the ingredients that allow me to open up and explore the depths of spirituality and the richness of spirit.
I step back into this solitude – this is where I want to be.
Om Shanti

The Traveller

An_incredible_journey

I am a traveller on this journey of life. Where am I going to, do I know?

I the traveller, the soul, have travelled through life and perhaps through many lives.
How long is this journey – do I even know my destination?

I bring myself back to focus on this moment in time and I reflect on want I truely want in life. In this moment, from deep within my soul, I hear the voice of my conscience calling out to me – all I want is to be happy, peaceful, loved and content.

If this is what I want and need then can I not achieve that in this moment now? why the journey through time and space?

I, the soul, am originally and eternally the essence of love, peace and happiness. This is my spiritual truth, But in my search for the same in the physical world, I have travelled far, far away from my own eternal essence.

And this journey, of I the traveller, is to return me back to myself again.

As I realise this eternal truth, the universe echoes back to me with my every breath – As I was, so shall I become.

 

Om Shanti

Smile Please

happiness

In our active, busy and very full lives we sometimes forget a very basic and positive human tendency – to smile.

What a difference a smile can make!

It can change someone’s day. It can change the atmosphere in a room or transform tension into lightness. it can change a confrontation into a conversation which is open and without fear.

And irrespective of whether there is a situation to be faced or not, bringing a smile to my face will definitely have an impact – it will allow me to make a positive contribution towards creating a positive atmosphere and it will also impact the quality of my experience in that moment.

It takes only a second to smile – make time to smile!

 

Om Shanti
