Building a Bridge to the Soul

Living a soul-inspired life is not easy. The tasks of everyday living can create conflict and demands that distract us from the subtle whispers of spirit. Inherent in our humanity is a gulf between our personality nature and our highest potential of being in the world. Through intention and effort we can build a bridge to the soul, enabling us to live a life more divinely inspired. There are three regular practices that facilitate the building of your soul bridge (understood in Sanskrit as the Antahkarana). These three are Meditation (Thought), Study (Word), and Service (Action).

Thought

The soul speaks in whispers and is most readily heard in the silence between thoughts. Learning to quiet the busy ‘monkey mind’ is an essential step to enable the voice of the soul to be heard. A regular meditative practice is essential to learning to quiet and steady the mind so that it can be receptive to the voice of the soul. Explore our meditation tools.

Word

Training the higher (abstract) mind supports developing soul consciousness. The soul expresses through our intuition – often in symbols and abstract thought. Learning to discern between intuition and personality is necessary to building the bridge to the soul. Our quality spiritual education tools are designed to foster your higher mind.

Action

What we do matters. Soulful action (service) is any action taken as a result of prompting by the soul. Service can be as small as a soul-impulsed kind word to a stranger or as immense as dedicating your entire life energy and resources to soulful work in the world. Small acts of service are training. We’ll give you ideas – practice them often.
