Soul and love : some quotes, thoughts and reflections

In the end the distance from or absence of love in our life leads us to a loss of soul and there are many forms from which we can feel and absorb the feeling of love. Today I got a lot of love from the Sun and from a beautiful walk around the neighbourhood with my dog Jasper, I felt anger earlier on with someone who misjudged me but if I look at what was going on the feelings of anger also came out of my soul’s desire to be understood and loved. However in the absence of other’s caring for my soul I can still choose to do that, and I can still fight for me. That is what I have learned over the past few years of therapy.

I was also blessed to read the following thoughts in my Tian Dayton ‘bible’ or book of daily meditations which helped me to understand how intricately love and soul are interconnected. I wanted to share these thoughts today to inspire others if they resonate for you. I know how many of us struggle to love ourselves and with the lack of love from a cold unfeeling world at times. That said there is usually somewhere we can turn for love and to nourish our soul once we fully understand what it needs.

Here are some of Tian’s thoughts on soul and love.

Human love is the expression of soul on earth. It is the force that moves mountains, that turns plain and simple living into something noble and majestic. Love can make a pauper feel like a prince, lack of love can make a prince feel like a pauper. It is love that makes the difference between life feeling precious and valuable or worthless. I will get further in life by loving what I have than by looking forever elsewhere for meaning.

Getting to know the soul within me is my best weapon against fatigue and depression. My circumstances may not change, but I experience my circumstances differently. I see life in a new way when soul is at the centre of my being. (which is) vivified by that energy. Living with soul as my central point of reference keeps me connected to healing energy. It leads me to live with an attitude of health and aliveness in every cell. The cells of my body know what my attitude toward life is. Today I will teach them to live.

A soul loss can be observed today as a psychological phenomena in everyday lives of the human beings around us. Loss of soul appears in the form of a sudden onset of apathy and listlessness, the joy has gone out of life, initiative is crippled, one feels empty, everything seems pointless.

Marie Louise von Franz

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
