Your soul doesn’t worry about getting its own way. In fact, your soul doesn’t cling to anything. At a soul level every moment contains potential contentment and ease. Does this sound out there, impossible to attain? Try these practical suggestions for moving toward a soul-centered calmness.
Release attachments to evolve from your ego-based “little s” self to your soul-oriented “big S” Self. Notice your “rules,” what you find acceptable as well as what seems intolerable. The more intense the attachment, the more tension arises when life doesn’t conform to your wishes. Ask yourself whether your preferences and attachments matter in the larger scheme of things. Will it matter tomorrow, next week, next year, or at the end of your life? Notice how releasing preferences liberates you.
Notice when you perceive anything or anyone as a problem, a way of judging and rejecting the here and now as unacceptable. What appears as messiness at a human level actually represents perfection from the soul perspective, ideally suited for each person’s evolution. Recently when I explored what I considered someone’s problematic rigidness, I learned from the Akashic Records rigidity represents calcified attachments. How amusing to discover I felt intolerant toward someone else’s intolerance!
Remember your soul embodies ease and grace, not tension and anxiety. You can approach these states when you engage in time-proven approaches such as meditation, yoga, tai chi, and other spiritual practices which help release your mind’s busyness and attachment. The more you invite your soul rather than your mind to guide your actions, the more joy and satisfaction you experience.
Do you catch yourself wanting situations, experiences, or people to change? Does it help to remember you don’t have attachments at a soul level?
