What nobody is telling you about your soul

This was in my Inbox sent by Neale. Thank you, Neale! The world will certainly feel better…

Dear Joy,

For me, the beginning of the most fruitful, exciting and rewarding time of my life was the moment I realized I had a soul.

Before then, I didn’t know what “having” a soul really meant; I didn’t know what the soul was, or what it did. And I had no idea what my soul could offer me or do for my life.

My soul might as well not even have been there for all the good it was doing me. I mean, it was there, but I wasn’t receiving any benefit from its existence.

To me, the soul was simply a concept. It had no practical function in my day-to-day life whatsoever.

But the day I realized that my soul could be more than a mere concept, and was instead an actual functioning, practical, meaningful, and useful part of my life, was in fact the most exciting and rewarding day of my life up to that point.

It entirely changed the way I looked at myself and everything that had ever happened to me.

What I’ve since come to understand is that I am a more complex entity than I ever could have imagined—and certainly far more complex than I thought myself to be when I was a child.

My parents never taught me anything about my soul. Neither did my teachers in school. Nor did I hear about it from any minister, priest or rabbi.

It was as if the concept of the soul, and the true function of the soul, was a secret no one was allowed to allude to or contemplate.

Not that I blame any of the people from my childhood or hold it against them. After all, they weren’t told by their elders about the soul, either.

It’s a terrible shame that the few messengers and teachers through the centuries who have explained these truths about the soul to us have been largely ignored, ridiculed or marginalized.

Some have even been killed for their beliefs. One particular messenger you might have heard about was actually crucified.

The human species has a habit of crucifying and murdering people who reveal points of view about life that are contrary to what our Elders and our Ancients have passed on to us.

And here’s where humanity gets even further away from the truth . . .

Most of us think life is only about our own health, prosperity, happiness, and love.

But we did not come to physicality upon the earth just to achieve those goals.

All this time, since the dawn of civilization, we’ve been missing the biggest prize.

We haven’t even fathomed that there may be a deeper, more profound truth regarding what life is all about.

We have refused to entertain questions about the function and mission of our soul, and what it means to us as individuals and as a civilization.

But here’s what I know to be true after 70 years on Earth, and after many, many conversations with God about the meaning and purpose of life:

The human soul is a direct expression and a singular individuation of Divinity, much like a drop from the ocean is both part of the ocean but not the entirety of the ocean itself.

The soul entered into physicality, or the individual reality of each and every one of us, in order to create an unlimited experience of Divinity, not a limited experience of humanity!

To put it another way . . . your soul is here on a mission from God.

That mission is to provide you with The Totality that is God, with a direct experience of what it means to be Divine.

We’ve all had moments where we feel a deep sense of connection to ourselves and the world, a sense of expansiveness and pure joy.

Those are moments where we might say that we are connected with our soul, or being true to ourselves, or doing what really matters to us.

But the question is: How can we create a daily experience where this kind of purposefulness shows up in everything we do and care about?

That’s what my 9-week Living From Your Soul online course is all about.

Not since 1995, around the time that Book One of Conversations with God was first published, have I had a more important message to bring to the world.

I’d like to invite you to be a part of this 9-week journey with me, to discover the true meaning and purpose of your soul and to learn how to live that purpose each and every day.

By learning the truth about your soul, and practicing with the skills and simple everyday tools I’ll provide for you, you’ll be able to have a new sense of wonder about your life almost immediately.

You’ll have a new reason for living, and you’ll finally feel a true sense of freedom, because you’ll see there is nothing to fear and that you have a choice in all areas of your life: career, relationships, health and general wellbeing.

Learning how to connect with and live from your soul is by far the most important thing I’ve ever done, and it’s the most important thing you can do for yourself right now, no matter what stage of life you’re in and no matter how difficult or accomplished your life is at the moment.

That’s because when you can live from your soul, you’ll have a sense of the Divine nature of life and your true purpose on Earth, independent of anything you’ll ever have to do or achieve or acquire.

Please visit the course information page to find out more and consider joining me starting Thursday, March 6th for Living From Your Soul: A 9-Week Journey to Create a Life that Expresses Your Truest Self.

I hope you’ll decide to join me.

The Little Soul & The Friendly Soul

(This is a reminder of why we are in this realm because we so, so easily forget.)

God said to the Little Soul, “You may choose to be any Part of God you wish to be. You are Absolute Divinity experiencing Itself. What Aspect of Divinity do you now wish to experience as You?”

“You mean I have a choice,” asked the Little Soul.

God answered, “Yes. You may choose to experience any Aspect of Divinity in, as, and through you.”

“Okay,” said the Little Soul, “then I choose Forgiveness. I want to experience my Self as that Aspect of God called Complete Forgiveness.”

Well this created a little challenge, as you can imagine. There was no one to forgive. All God had created was Perfection and Love.

“No one to forgive?” asked the Little Soul, somewhat incredulously.

“No one,” God repeated. “Look around You. Do You see any souls less than perfect, less wonderful than You?”

At this the Little Soul twirled around and was surprised to see Himself surrounded by all the souls in heaven. They had come from far and wide throughout the Kingdom, because they heard that the Little soul was having an extraordinary conversation with God.

“I see none less perfect than I!” the Little Soul exclaimed. “Who, then, shall I have to forgive?”

Just then, another soul stepped forward from the crowd.

“You may forgive me,” said this Friendly Soul.

“For what?” the Little Soul asked.

“I will come into your next physical lifetime and do something for you to forgive,” replied the Friendly Soul.

“But what? What could you, a being of such Perfect Light, do to make me want to forgive you?” the Little Soul wanted to know.

“Oh,” smiled the Friendly Soul, “I’m sure we can think of something.”

“But why would you want to do this?” The Little Soul could not figure out why a being of such perfection would want to slow down its vibration so much that it could actually do something “bad.”

“Simple,” the Friendly Soul explained, “I would do it because I love You. You want to experience your Self as Forgiving, don’t you? Besides, you’ve done the same for me.”

“I have?” asked the Little Soul.

“Of course. Don’t you remember? We’ve been All Of It, you and I. We’ve been the Up and the Down of it, and the Left and the Right of it. We’ve been the Here and the There of it, and the Now and the Then of it. We’ve been the Big and the Small of it, the Male and the Female of it, the Good and the Bad of it. We’ve all been the All of It.”

“And we’ve done it by agreement, so that each of us might experience ourselves as The Grandest Part of God. For we have understood that…

“In the absence of that which You Are Not, that Which You Are, is Not.”

“In the absence of ‘cold’ you cannot be ‘warm.’ In the absence of ‘sad’you cannot be ‘happy.’ Without a thing called ‘evil,’ the experience you call ‘good’ cannot exist.”

“If you choose to be a thing, something or someone opposite to that has to show up somewhere in your universe to make that possible.”

The Friendly Soul then explained that those people are God’s Special Angels, and these conditions God’s Gifts.

“I ask only one thing in return,” the Friendly Soul declared.

“Anything! Anything,” the Little Soul cried. He was excited now to know that He could experience every Divine Aspect of God. He understood now, The Plan.

“In the moment that I strike you and smite you,” said the Friendly soul, “in the moment that I do the worst to you that you could ever imagine – in that self same moment…remember Who I Really Am.”

“Oh, I wont forget!” promised the Little Soul. “I will see you in the perfection with which I hold you now, and I will remember Who You Are, always.”
