When we rebuff our emotions habitually, we also upset our self-esteem’s applecart. Likewise, when we stifle our emotions, we also lose our touch with our inner self, including the ability to 'reflect' with our soul. It is, after all, our soul that makes us human. You and I become humane only when we find a deep connect, or empathy, with our soul. If we don’t connect, for whatever reason, we lose our accord with who we are, or what we are. We’ll continue to mechanically exist through reflex action — not live a vibrant, conscious life with our mind, body, and soul.
The soul is not a fixated entity. It represents a quality, a dimension of living a full life and accepting ourselves. It expresses your values, beliefs, and the 'hub' of being. When you care and respond to the call of your soul, you’ll express yourself. You’ll also observe and connect with it. What’s more, you will consciously experience life and watch, or monitor, your reactions that take place in the deep recesses of your inner being. You’ll glow with harmony.
This represents your soul’s code.
Life is a process. It may be viewed as either positive, or negative, depending upon how you look at, or sense, the essence of living — not mere existence. Most of us frantically try to avoid negative feelings in life. This leads us to overlook meaningful lessons that we ought to learn and understand. You’d do well to listen to the gentle, mild-mannered call of your soul, especially in times of difficulty — from which no one is exempt.
Most of us dread about troubles — of what we must do to free ourselves from trepidation, pain and grief. The best thing you’d do is to recognise and ‘bond’ with them — the pangs of your soul. This will bring awareness. It will eventually help us to shape solutions to our problems. It will 'rev-up' your inner strength — something you can carry forward with a purpose. When you and I learn to regard the soul with an open mind, we’ll be able to find what has gone wrong with us. In so doing, we can turn around failures, disappointments, illnesses, and other equally agonising feelings — including despair, apprehension, misery, and anxiety.
Life is tough, stressful, and complex. No one other than highly evolved beings can effectively control their thoughts and feelings. Yet, when you and I learn to 'tutor' our minds, howsoever imperfectly, and respond calmly to situations, we will be much better human beings.
