Listening to the Soul

This post is inspired by a tweet from Sandi Amorim and then after reading her own blog post which can be read here. She is a wise woman with some great words to make you think. And, it got me to thinking, which I think was her purpose.

We should listen to our souls, take the time to perhaps meditate and let it speak to us and tell us what is true to us. Somehow life seems to get in the way and we let so many things take us this way and that. Our own thoughts turn off the voice in the soul and stifle it. Learning to open that channel maybe one of the most important things in learning to live life. 

Life should be lived, enjoyed, learnt, progressed and humanity served in one way or the other. The soul is where it is all at!

The Bahá'í writings affirm that "the soul is a sign of God, a heavenly gem whose reality the most learned of men hath failed to grasp, and whose mystery no mind, however acute, can ever hope to unravel." Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

The soul is the one part that continues after we leave this physical world. It is independent of the body and eternal. Henceforth we need to take it pretty seriously I would say. The soul is where the faculties such as the mind, will and the heart reside. If we are not listening to our souls we are closing out our spiritual selves and slowing our progress. 

Sandi's comments got me thinking again, sometimes I want to do certain things, is it appropriate that I consult the soul? Is it being true to myself? Does it spiritually enrich my life or others? Perhaps following the wrong things will not get me where ultimately I want to go. So I think I better start listening. Lots of questions, sometimes the answers don't seem to come freely, but learning to listen to your soul takes practice, and that time is available to us now. Perhaps I better start. 

Tell me what your soul says. Lets continue the conversation.
