There is a hunger in all of us that wants to be understood. To be fed. A core ideology that grumbles at any taste of freedom from the ache of longing. The soul knows what it wants. Without question. It was born to know. And We - YOU - put limitations on what your soul can have, what it can experience, and what it can express. And so it damns you. It damns you with guilt, with frustration, with anger, with fear. You have bound your soul up with limitations like sinew that is incapable of being cut without slashing and hacking, for that is what your mind now feels like every time you try to hit it with truth. The soul is angry, resistant, longing, aching - every time you tighten it down. The soul has a voice, a need for unique expression. You are the ruthless brutality suppressing its freedom, and your soul is crying for suffrage. Your soul has declared war. 

To have faith in the soul is to allow it freedom. To live. To experience. To thrive. Through hell and back. To capture not the soul itself but the essence of its beauty and set it free to do what it does best - LOVE. To let it swim the oceans deep with the sharks and dolphins, to fight unabated through storms, to allow the downpours that drench the soul to the brittle, shivering bones. And get back up to warm in the sun, only to do it all over again. This is the soul's purpose: to ride the seasons of eternity like spring reaches for the enchantment of summer only to fall to the decay of winter; To live as only Mother Nature could - in harmony with a divine pattern.

Rest now. The war is over. Give in to the current that your soul longs to flow with. Find the channel, and let your soul flow with ease. Let the oceans consume it. For deep within the oceans’ depths is Mother Earth’s heart and her infinite wisdom. Allow your soul to swim and dance and ride the waves as it was meant to, skipping over the undertow, balancing, step by step, high upon the rail, sights on the horizon. Always safe. Always loved. Always in harmony with spirit and Mother Nature. As Spirit intended.

To be limited by fear is to see no pattern of truth beyond the entwining of raw sinew created by your history of repressed expression. To be expanded by truth is to relax into life and her natural flow. To be awake to your own truth is to recognize that your soul’s beauty is mirrored in every single life force around you - strong, weak, brave, cowardly, passionate, creative, unfortunate, and life-affirming. To LIVE in that truth is to bear no shame in expressing your soul’s unique voice as it speaks its wisdom of the ages, like nature has done for thousand of years without regret.

Stand not within the circle of limitations. Branch out to reach your soul’s potential, for to forfeit that divine right is to send a message to the world that our hearts beat alone and without truth and wisdom. Go beyond the stillness of your heart and see that your potential is beyond your wildest expectations. For You are Love.
