So, Some Soul Here?
Soul. Well, what do you think it is?
My thoughts tend to go for grand topics, like what is your soul. Comment below if you know.
Maybe today I can be more easy and calm. I once wrote a song, or was guided to write a song, about just that and I am recalling it now:
“Calm your heart and let go, see all of your troubles in an empty bowl.”
In other words, if the bowl is empty, there is no place to catch your troubles. They simply fall through the bottom of the bowl and go away. Calm your heart and let it go.
“All you want is peace of mind. All your want is some peace of mind.”
“Calm your heart and let go. Pour all of your troubles in an empty bowl.”
How do you feel?
This song is a release in many ways. A release of baggage and burdens. These can be crosses we choose to bear. These can be simple remembrances of feelings we have felt. They can be anything that hold us back. Any troubles or challenges we choose to cling to.
We choose whether we drag the past along with us, only to inject it again and again into our present moments.
Or we choose to leave the past behind, and dream of the possibility of a new way of being.
A new way of being
The vision you see before you in your mind’s eye can be of new wonder and new possibility. It is your focus upon this that creates all you see before you. Where attention goes, energy flows.
So even when you send energy to day dreams of the future, your attention goes to that possible reality as well. Then your life unfolds in that direction. As long as you maintain your focus upon it.
This may sound simple and yet be hard to execute. I am no master of it. Can you be?
What have you come to this life to do? What new possibility will you present to your fellows?
There is always a new way of being that may be engaged with in any situation. It is always your choice to go with the new or the old. The old may feel safe. The new may create growth. It is your choice.
It is always your choice
Calm your heart.
Pour your troubles into oblivion.
And let go.
Thank you, God.

Blessings to you all.
Day 21 of 30 Day Challenges
The blog series in which I am completing my challenge from 30dayblogchallenge.com!
As well as a self-made challenge inspired by Abraham Hicks in which I self-soothe myself through negative emotion.
At the end of this 30 day journey I intend to be more fully on my life’s path, “all systems go.”
30 Day Blog Challenge wanted me to practice graphics for my blog. Good, I have been working on header graphics all week. Still refining. May get to body images as needed, but am enjoying playing with type for headers and refining my skill with visuals for my posts.
30 Day Self-Soothe Challenge and nothing too outstanding. Good. I feel more comfortable being at ease about my life and everything going on around me. Even the things that might have ruffled my feathers in the past.
Thank you for reading. Blessings.
