I think without writing I would go insane, OK maybe not insane but I’d certainly be feeling lost or not feeling that I am moving towards self actualization. For me writing is a vehicle for self actualization chosen by my soul, I had no choice in the matter. It’s a vehicle that allows me to transcend my physical reality by manifesting my soul into the physical realm, through the language of the written word. Writing is when my soul takes over and communicates to the world. I am just a physical conduit that acts as part of the communication; the real communicator is not me but my soul.
The vehicle for self expression chosen by my soul is writing, for some people it is art and for others it is music. For me writing is the greatest tool to unleash the expressions of my soul. Writing creates a funnel in which to channel my soul’s expressions. The manifestations of my souls expressions, soothes me, because it is resonating with me spiritually. We are all spiritual beings experiencing physical reality through a body loaned to us; for a temporary period of time, until we go back to being pure souls again.
If I don’t write I become restless, something inside me seems to be slowly dying, perhaps it’s the ethereal link with my soul that slowly becomes severed as I neglect my souls yearnings for expression. Writing renews my link with my soul and allows my soul to reflect on its physical manifestations. For me this physical manifestation can only happen through writing. The channel of writing creates a path for expression, a path created and guided by my soul so that it can release its spirit into the world.
As we traverse through this physical life; our soul is always looking for outlets of expression and through these outlets of expression we move towards self actualization, by becoming more of our souls in this physical reality. The more of our soul we become in this reality the more we become self actualized. If we sever the path that allows the soul’s self expression, then we not only limit our full potential as human beings, but we contaminate the purity of our soul. Without self expression, the soul becomes lifeless and we become hard to the world.
Our physical lives dictates to our soul what to do rather than the reverse, this leads to a purely materialistic life only driven by material needs and desires. Our souls acts as a purifier for this world by filling it with our spirit and reminding us that we are more than just body, and that in reality we are all souls. The manifestation of our soul is channeled with what resonates with it the most, and this channeling allows the spirit of the soul to be released into this world, and the purity of the soul cleanses us and the world around us.
As soon as I start writing; I can feel my spirit soaring into my body, giving me peace and making me feel whole again. My writing is a pathway for the spirit of my soul to enter my body and permeate every fibre of my being, transforming me and reminding me of my spiritual existence, which is the true reality of things. My spirituality extends beyond my body and into the world around me, and the more I write the more I spiritually expand.
The spirit of my soul enters my mind and raises the level of my consciousness into a spiritual reality, transcending my physical body and mind. The feeling of elation runs through my body as a result of the reunion of my body and soul, through the channeling of my writing. Without my writing I would be dead inside, with no life, just living and going through the activities of life with no rhyme or reason, just existing without soul. The link with our soul brings us alive and animates our deepest spirituality into the world around us. We see the world through spiritual eyes, and the view takes our breath away as we relish in the moment of expanded consciousness created by our spirit.
This doesn’t happen with any kind of writing; only when the writing comes from my soul, only then will it act as a pathway for my spirit. I often write from an intellectual perspective, cogitating ideas to be expounded on my laptop. But this type of writing doesn’t give a voice for my spirit, and the pathway for the expression of my soul is not created. Leaving me once more isolated in the physical plane of reality without any spirit to feed me and guide me as I wander through this world.
As I write I am only conscious of my spirit passing from my soul into my mind and body and beyond, the words that I write almost seem arbitrary to a certain degree, but they act as carriers for my spirit to enter this world. My words carry the meaning and essence of my spirit into this world and; give it a stage to be experienced by myself and others. Spreading the light of my spirit into this dense physical matter we call reality, and illuminating what was once dark into light. With the intuition of my spirituality I can see true reality of the spirit that binds our physical reality.
Our physical reality is just an illusionary vision created from the energy that binds its forms. The underlying reality that animates energy is spirit, without spirit nothing can exist. Spirit is what animates our body; spirit is what gives us meaning and purpose in life. Without the spirit of our souls we would just be biological machines.
The meaning of spirit and the purpose it brings with it is unspoken and intuitive knowledge, manifests itself, as just a “knowing” in my body and consciousness. This “knowing” brings peace to me; because I no longer feel isolated and I am again reunited with my soul and I am complete, even if for a brief moment as I write. When the writing is over, the spirit still lingers in this reality but slowly fades away until the next time I open the pathway through my writing to let my spirit once again enter me and this world again.
Perhaps the path for all of us is not the physical path that we follow or the path of goals but a path to release our spirit into this world, to make it a better place, by reminding us that we are not material beings and that we are truly eternal, because our spirit is eternal. The path to enlightenment is to strive to manifest as much of our spirit from our soul as possible into this reality and by doing so we transform ourselves and the reality around us.
Being our true self’s, which is our spiritual self’s is not about goals or material gains, but about finding the best path that allows us to create a clear pathway for our souls spirit to manifest itself into the world. The clearer the path, the greater the spirituality. Which is the reason why so many people are unhappy in their lives or their jobs because they are missing the spiritual element in their lives. Without spirit there is no meaning and without meaning we are purposeless.
So many people waste their lives in pursuit of materialism, which only brings emptiness; because these activities don’t open up the path to releasing your spirituality into your world, by releasing your spirituality through the pathway that you create, you will be freeing yourself form the shackles of materialism and of the mental dogma that imprisons us. The spirit of the soul can transcend the limited physically reality of mental and physical conditioning and raise the veil to spiritual realism.
What is your channel for the soul to express its spirit?
Everyone has one; they are gifts to us to renew our bond with the spiritual world. Perhaps it is music, meditation, quiet contemplation, pranic breathing, praying or like myself your conduit for the expression of your soul is writing. All of us have a path to reach spirituality; it’s just a matter of discovering what path resonates the most with you. Some paths only allow the spirit to be partially expressed, because it isn’t the chosen method of our soul, while other methods give complete expression and manifestation of our spirit.
