We Are All Souls in Human Form

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience;

we are spiritual beings having a human experience.”

– Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

 

We nourish our physical bodies with exercise, nutrition and fashionable clothing.  Amidst the social etiquette of the day, we slather on moisturizers to appear ageless, we cover up what we deem physical flaws and many of us intend to show our best physical selves to the world at large.

We nourish our minds by learning and by exploring knowledge that many of us voraciously seek in order to keep our brains functioning at higher levels.  We read self-help books, we watch motivational videos, we subscribe to uplifting blogs, we communicate with others who are searching for ‘enlightenment’ and we expand our thinking.

But what do we do about our souls, the oft forgotten center of our beings?

Do we attend the church of our choice?  Do we pray?  Do we believe in God, a higher power and Divine Power?  Are we religious?  Or spiritual?  Or both?  Do we carry faith within?  Do we connect with others through our heartlights?  Do we lean outside the conventional box of spiritual thinking?  Do we nourish the soul’s desire for love and forgiveness?  Or do we step aside, turn a blind eye/heart/mind to the Divinity that resides in each of us?

Nourishing our souls is mandatory, but it seems that many do not take the necessary time to explore and to listen to the quiet voice of the soul which is the heart of our experience here on Earth.  We blindly follow the herd of humanity at times, caught up in the woulda, coulda, shoulda’s of life school, not daring to take the time to be present and to feel the presence and connection with our collective souls.

It’s sad for me to watch so many people rushing after the future or repeating the past and forgetting about the present moment which gathers so much love in its presence.  The if only’s haunt our lives, tearing people apart and deepening the ruts of ‘when blank happens, I’ll be happy’, thus forgoing that precious presence of blessing that is in the here and now, for an intangible desire that when we look with loving eyes at the present moment, was here all along and truly was enough.

The soul innately knows that we are enough (perfect, whole and complete) in this present moment, but our Earthly fears drown out the quiet voice which whispers the soul’s desire and message.  Take a few minutes a day to be aware of your soul.  Breathe in the precious present moment, taking in all the love that abounds and exhaling all of the negativity that sometimes feels like it’s beating down your front door.  Nourish your own soul with loving acceptance and send forth love and forgiveness from your own heartlight to shine and to connect with others.  You will notice a difference when you you do this.  Trust me.  Healing is here for you.  Love and light surround you and are within you always.

Be who you are meant to be in this life.  You are worthy.

Shine On!

  1. Beautiful. All of it. Especially this — “The if only’s haunt our lives, tearing people apart and deepening the ruts of ‘when blank happens, I’ll be happy’, thus forgoing that precious presence of blessing that is in the here and now, for an intangible desire that when we look with loving eyes at the present moment, was here all along and truly was enough.”

  2. Thanks for this post! This quote used to be the tag line in my signature on my e-mails. Those of us who were fortunate enough to get a “brick in the head” to awaken us to be more mindful, are so grateful,…. but we still need reminding. ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. Ah, yes. The soul. How could we forget that part? To me that’s the biggest part. I was blessed with the memory of the in between. Remembering where I came from. I live in Grace and know how blessed I am. Life is not easy even still but knowing it has a purpose and I don’t walk through it alone gives me strength and courage. I keep this mostly to myself. Very few would understand and it really doesn’t matter if they do. Our paths are individual and unique as are we. If I can offer a smile or borrow one along the way, it’s a good day. I try to take care of my body as it’s my vehicle to transport me on this earthly journey. It’s not who I am. I wonder how many will get it this time around. The teacher is here, are the students ready?

    • Marlene, I received such inspiration from what you’ve shared. I love that you remember and live in Grace and exude such gratitude and acceptance. I am ever grateful for our friendship. ♥

  4. Terrific post, Yvonne. Complete and sot on.
    Many spend their lives reaching for the brass ring. Only to get it and realize it is not enough. As Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen said: “If all we strive for is the things of this world, then that is all we will ever have.”
    We were not meant for this world. Disappointment tells us so. But, if we behave as aforementioned, then that is the reason why so many find it so hard to face death.
