Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present to our thoughts, feelings, sensations and the environment around us. As we practice mindfulness we learn to become accepting of our thoughts and feelings without fighting or judging them.
I’m imagining my body being in sync with this spring season, warming up and effortlessly melting away the excess that has accumulated over the winter months - letting go little by little – and then letting go some more.
A team that doesn't work well together successfully isn't a money team. It doesn't mean that they are not fun, exciting, or lively. But, it usually means that they are not very effective. If the players don't work together to get the ball into the goal, or the puck into the net, or the football over the line they, are not considered a successful team.
Similarly, the Soul can't use a personality whose components don't function as a team. Considering ourselves in this way is a helpful analogy for thinking about the process of spiritual awakening and personality integration.
No one is perfect, and the art of forgiveness is a very normal part of any relationship, even a conscious one. Forgiveness is also something that can’t just be conceptually understood. Remember the early days in school when your teacher would make you say you’re sorry and makeup? Standing there waiting until you said those magic words. You’d say them reluctantly without meaning it just so you could get on with your recess. The same sort of phenomena still happens in adulthood.
The soul’s destiny is to learn to perfect its influence. This means that its ability to express and work through our form (the personality) and express in the world is its practice. This process of building soul collaboration happens for all of us, and it occurs incrementally. Consequently, the process is somewhat predictable and consistent for all of us. Understanding our soul and personality natures helps us to know how the soul conducts its evolutionary relationship with us.
