A life that seeks to nourish and sustain the soul first.
A life that remains still and small and quiet enough to listen to the songbird and the rustling leaves and the falling rain.
A life that sees with the heart more than the eyes.
A life that gives fearlessly knowing deeply that giving sustains more than taking.
For whatever is measured out will be given back a hundred fold in ways you cannot imagine.
" Give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down and shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete, therewith it shall be measured to you again.”
A Soulful Life seeks and finds goodness in others.
Understands that I am no better than you.
We all stand in awe of this mystery called life.
We are all on this wondrous journey together.
The bark of a red wood tree, the blade of green grass, the sparkling stream, the gentle fawn,
you and I are connected and a part of one another.
If you are deprived I will never be satiated.
If you are in prison, I cannot be completely free.
If you are oppressed, I remain shackled.
A soulful life is a life that puts love first.
Before my ideology, my creed, my religion, my politics, my colour, my country, myself.
And love comes after too.
"Let all go dear...So comes love."
It is the pearl without price for which everything else must be given.
