Today’s Track: Spirit of Albion by Damh the Bard
BRING SOUL INTO THE WORLD
“We live in a culture that is greatly biased against the imagination, because our culture is very materialistic, objective and literal. Our culture lacks soul, and doesn’t know it, although it experiences the consequences. When you don’t know what’s missing, then of course you don’t know what to bring in, even though you feel something is missing.
“We live in a world that needs more soul, more meaning. We, as conscious beings, have, as our primary responsibility, at this time in human history, the task of bringing soul into the world, or releasing soul into the world. We do this, first of all, in ourselves and in our own personal world; then we do it in our groups – including family; then we do it in our society through our work, relationships and presence there.”
— Andrew Schneider

“If death is one mystery, life is another, greater one… We can only feel awe before a mystery that both is what we are and surpasses our understanding.”
We’re living this mystery every day! It can be fun, and exciting. Some of the best-selling books of all time are mysteries. We just love to figure things out, to use our minds, to put the pieces together so that they make sense. We’re wired this way. So if we approach our lives with the same zest and fortitude, imagine the fun we could have!
