Soul Story

Originally and eternally the soul has the nature of being peaceful, loveful, happy, pure and wise.

The soul is like a seed and all that it is is within the seed. Like the seed of a plant, it is only when it is planted in the ground, watered and given sunshine that it grows and expresses its nature. Until it is planted the seed cannot express that which it is.

The soul, the seed, also takes the support of matter, this body and when this happens it can express its nature.
Originally the soul was pure but over time it has acquired other personality traits and habits so that the true nature is nolonger visible.

Like the coconut, it has developed a rough, hard and ugly exterior and this is how it is identified. But the fact is that what is real and what is valuable is that which is within. The coconut is not the shell but the flesh within. The soul is not what is obviously seen, but that which is original, eternal and pure.

If I the soul can break through the hard, rough exterior then that which is truly natural will express itself.

Do I have the courage to break open the shell?

Om Shanti

Forgiveness

Forgiveness heals, but most of us find it difficult to do, especially if the source of our hurt is close and personal.

If we feel hurt it means we have accepted or taken something that in fact we should have refused. Then we are left in a position where we now have to let go of it, give it away. Unless we do this we will continue to feel the pain. We have to forgive!

The source of upset is something in the past. Once happened we need to understand that it cannot be changed, it is impossible. But what can change is how I deal with it now.

When I am unable to forgive it is like waging war with the situation. Then I hold onto resentment and bad feelings within myself: I punish myself.

Forgiveness requires love and sympathy, initially for the self, but also for the other person. Where there is love, there can be acceptance and acceptance then becomes an easy stepping stone to forgiveness.

Take the step to forgiveness.

 

Om Shanti

Love

The most valuable currency of our time is love. Exchange love!

You have to become great donors of love. Donate love not just in words and actions, but also in your thoughts.

Love will melt the hardest of rocks and nourish the most barren lands.

And for the self, when you give this donation of love, all the weaknesses that remain within you will be removed. Because in donating you are receiving, and in receiving you are removing all that is unwanted within you so that there is space to hold the love inside.

When you have love for everyone, then the response of love is cooperation and the result of cooperation is success.

Now become the ones who donate love.

Om Shanti
