“Thomas Moore believes that we can't really meet our soul less we experience true loss. Pretty interesting perspective. And I think he may be right. So many of us go through the motions of daily life. We literally hum along until something happens. A transition. An illness A betrayal.
Waking up one day and realizing that you are are numb and can't feel your body anymore. You feel dead inside. It's that "Something" that is so big that it knocks us on our ass. It's when we pick ourselves up and take that freaking scary leap where we can meet our soul and everything changes. And it takes guts to deal with the loss that can give you your soul.
People will do anything not to face their souls. Addiction in all of it's forms. And it's that loss of soul connection that has created a heartache that we just keep trying to fill.
The work is to embody your soul and to do that you first have to embody your physical body. You simply can never touch a part of your body without touching your soul. We are connected. So we have to stop numbing the body to enter the portal of our soul. And beneath every deep layer is another layer.
