Soul / Purpose
 


Sunset and Moonrise Simultaneously at the North Pole


"What we commonly call man, the eating, drinking, planting, counting man, does not, as we know him, represent himself, but misrepresents himself.  Him we do not respect, but the soul, whose organ he is, would he let it appear through his action, would make our knees bend.  When it breathes through his intellect, it is genius; when it breathes through his will, it is virtue; when it flows through his affection, it is love" Ralph Waldo Emerson "The Over-Soul"



Learning to Live Through the Whole Being
Flow Through the Heart, See it Through the Mind

 

A day of Silence
Can be a pilgrimage in itself. 

A day of Silence
Can help you listen

To the Soul play
In marvelous lute and drum. 

Is not most talking
A crazed defense of a crumbling fort? 

I thought we came here
To surrender in Silence,

To yield to Light and Happiness,
To Dance within

In celebration of Love's Victory! 

--Hafiz   'I Heard God Laughing'

Hafiz--tr. Daniel Ladinsky
 

Physical Life is Ephemeral

I will not speak of Him as if he were absent, He has not been and he will never be. These are not mere words of consolation. Only those of us who feel it truly and permanently in the depths of our souls can comprehend this.
 Physical life is ephemeral, it passes inexorably. . . . This truth should be taught to every human being

that the immortal values of the spirit are above physical life. What sense does life have
 without these values? What then is it to live? Those who understand this and generously
 sacrifice their physical life for the sake of good and justice -- how can they die?
 God is the supreme idea of goodness and justice." unknown mystic


Stand Still for a Moment on the Mountain Top and

Dancing With Our Spirituality Becoming One with The One

Your breath is a sacred clock, my dear--
Why not use it to keep time with God's Name?

And if your feet are ever mobile
Upon this ancient drum, the earth,
O do not let your precious movements
Come to naught.

Let your steps dance silently
To the rhythm of the Beloved's Name!

My fingers and my hands
Never move through empty space,
For there are
Invisible golden lute strings all around,
Sending Resplendent Chords
Throughout the Universe.

I hear the voice
Of every creature and plant,
Every world and sun and galaxy--
Singing the Beloved's Name!

I have awakened to find violin and cello,
Flute, harp, and trumpet,
Cymbal, bell and drum--
All within me!
From head to toe, every part of my body
Is chanting and clapping!

Hafiz,
The beloved has made you
Such a luminous Man!

For with constant remembrance of God,
One's whole body will become
A Wonderful and Wild,
Holy Band!

Our Love Affair With God

I was making a spaghetti sauce
and put on a collection of old Paul Anka hits.

Listening to the lyrics, it struck me: If you imagine the love object is God, instead of some empty headed girl with regular features, there is little difference between popular love songs and religious hymns, prayers and chants.

We are all pilgrims and God (Love) is our Mecca.

I don't have to tell you that 97 per cent of all popular songs are love songs. A visitor from another planet would conclude that our religion is romantic love. But instead of recognizing the real object of our desire, we have fixated on the opposite sex, whom we mystify and idealize to reflect our true sublimated desire.

I am not a Jungian, but I agree with Carl Jung's statement: "If you take away God, man will invent a thousand false ones." They have taken away God. You can't mention the word in polite company. As if the concept of a Creator and a Design is so outlandish, given the incredible organization of everything in the natural world.

The people who want to replace God (with themselves) are responsible for our inability to mention or imagine God when it is so simple.

God is synonymous with our spiritual ideals and desires: truth, beauty, love, peace, bliss, justice and harmony.  So don't blame God for letting bad things happen to good people. Bad people are responsible, the same people who abolished God.

We are God's agents. If we don't bring about his Kingdom, it won't happen. Eventually, we'll all become extinct.


Getting Back to Love Songs 

Next time you hear a love song, imagine it is about God. You will be surprised how well it fits.

"I love you with all my heart, we'll never part, please stay with me...God."

"I'm so alone. All I want is somebody to love"

"Show me, you love me too."

"I'm so lonely; I'm so blue, now that you're gone."


These lyrics remind me of Christian, Muslim and Hindu mystics pining away for Divine Grace. 

We're religious zealots, just like them. All that's missing are the white robes. We don't pray five times a day.
 We listen to these prayers 50-100 times a day.

But we've taken a wrong turn. Instead of recognizing the true object of our desire, we have glommed
 on to the opposite sex.  We are looking for a person to play the role of God.

Frankly, we've been misdirected. (Think who runs the music and movie business.)  And, of course,
 lust is a confusing factor ...

Conclusion

If we could just begin with the knowledge that God loves us, then we wouldn't have this desperate
 misguided need "for love" expressed in love songs.

We are never alone. God is within us.  He is our constant companion, a warm, glowing fire at the center
 of our being. Our primary relationship is with Him.

  ~ Henry Makow
