I love how google search images links you to articles which express something strongly associated to what you were writing about and seeking an image to portray. I just came across the following article from the Huffington Post. It seems in modern times we are determined to exile aspects of the soul such as spiritual and romantic longing to the psychological bin of so called ‘neurosis’. I love this article as it speaks to the desire of the soul to long for an object of love and connection to the sacred or numinous, surely its not all just about projection but something far deeper and more important to our soul.

It is most illuminating.
Thanks for the linky, will bookmark to read tonight as it sounds like an interesting one. I think in modern times, religion and spirituality are declining on the whole in place of busy-ness, science, technology, lack of being in the moment and therefore lack of deeper introspection and so on. xx

So true Caz science too so often exiles the soul or says it doesnt exist but if we dont have a soul arent we just robots? Your perceptions are spot on. ❤
