WILDNESS and SOUL

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.

Recently I read that there are:

7 SOUL WOUNDS that are widespread in American Culture.

They are:

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
