Working On Your Own Spiritual Journey
WORKING ON YOUR OWN SPIRITUAL JOURNEY
This is important, so be sure to give yourself enough time and find a quiet space to reflect on what you feel it is that really guides your life and where you think this is directing you. Think of times in your life when you became aware that you were developing a new idea, quality, or potential that was already within you. What did this feel like? What was it like for you to discover for the first time that there was an eternal part of you along with the temporal part? Finally, after you’ve had enough time to reflect on these questions, write down the story of how your soul-making has expressed your own personal truth, as well as some part of the collective truth of us all.
Soul-making is not a solitary quest; it is for the benefit of everyone. It is a process of taking on a transcendent identity that results in nothing less than personal transformation which contributes also to our collective transformation. This is what the world needs most at this auspicious time.
C.G. Jung wrote:
“My life is a story of the self-realisation of the unconscious, I can understand myself only in the light of inner happenings. It is these that make up the singularity of my life.”
He seems to be implying that at our essence, we are like all other human beings. The soul is what links us to the archetypal world. Soul-Connection is communicating deeply with the inner realm, being fully awake and aware as the divine bursts forth from the unconscious, flooding our consciousness with eternal images.
Could it be that who we really are is linked directly to where we came from? Beyond all the here-and-now stuff of our lives, we all come from a common origin, someplace deeper and longer-lasting than this surface level existence. Beyond the daily, mundane events of our lives, we all also have an eternal soul. How has your soul’s journey through this physical quagmire given you your lasting identity? How has living deeply, learning from life’s intended lessons “by heart,” given you a sense of certitude in who you are and what your purpose is? How has your heart’s sufferings contributed to your changeless identity? Think about all the pains and troubles of your life, as well as the joys and successes, and tell the story of how the raw materials of the world has been the agent soul-making for you.
