Inner Journey: WHAT IS SOUL CONSCIOUSNESS?
“You are a holistic being with both nondualistic energy and the energy of the physical plane as a part of your being at your disposal.”
— Wayne Dyer
Andrew Schneider helps us understand our human experience of being soul. He says, “Soul consciousness arises when we stand facing in opposite directions at the same time – toward eternity and toward time, toward infinity and toward space, toward unity and toward complexity. We stand in that dualism without being dualistic, for in consciousness we can accommodate the opposites. We do this by identifying with both. This identification results in the experience of being an individual while at the same time being the whole, and finding no contradiction in this experience.”
“Give your difference, welcome my difference, unify all difference in the larger whole — such is the law of growth. The unifying of difference is the eternal process of life — the creative synthesis, the highest act of creation.”
— M. P. Follett
A Note from the Universe
Did you know that your boldest dreams today, like a thriving business and a steady income and when you have financial security for myself and family, will one day just be memories that make you smile, like learning to read, riding a bike, and Hula-Hooping.
Dang, you’re so “on it” this lifetime.

“Speech is silvern, silence is golden; speech is human, silence is divine.”
Sometimes we can’t help ourselves, we go on and on thinking we need to fill the empty spaces with words. But the truth is that a lot of communication happens in the silence. We relate to each other on a whole different level when we have time to just “be” with each other. Silence invites God to be a part of the conversation

Daily Tarot: The High Priestess
Be inconspicuous if you can, stay out of your own way, and see how many things go right all by themselves. Real luck is looking for you today, but you can chase it away by trying to have too much control over everything. This is not a day to micromanage. Rather, listen to your hunches, and don’t demand solid answers or too many facts or figures.
