The quest for the divine, or oneness with the universe, always springs from within.
For me I have discovered that by going to our Mother – Mother Earth – and who better describes It than Episcopal priest Mattew Fox.
“By digging deep into a wellspring of WILDNESS one finds the energy for new life, connections, images and moral imagination by which change happens in a deep, not superficial, way.”
As Paul said in his latest email-
It doesn’t matter where you find your spiritual path. We are all fundamentally spiritual beings and the essence of that lies in knowing one’s true self and finding a peace that comes from within rather than the outside world. It is in remembering this that we awaken to our personal path. The spiritual path springs forth from a daily routine that reaffirms our personal connection and purpose.
7 SOUL WOUNDS that are widespread in American Culture.
1. Separation from Nature
2. Separation from personal creativity and perception
3. Separation from dreaming and the visionary capacity
4. Separation from the ancestors/spiritual worlds
5. Separation from the body, deep masculine and deep feminine
6. Separation from the Essential Self /Purpose
7. Separation from the Cosmos
The journey of integration of all the parts of the Soul into a whole is called INDIVIDUATION
