Awakening to the Soul, Divine Wisdom and the Holy Spirit
Abstract: Recovering our Connection to the Soul.
In a civilisation which is patriarchal in organization and outlook, which has been structured for several thousand years by a male image of God presiding over religions and institutions created by men, and by a polarising mythology which glorifies power, conquest and the domination of nature, how can the long-silenced voice of the soul be heard? How can we realise that matter and the world in which we live are a manifestation of Spirit and the way we treat nature and matter has an effect on the web of life which embraces and connects all our lives?
The soul’s journey is not only about awakening to the understanding that there is no essential separation between seeker and Source. It is about how the soul has evolved on its journey on earth; what meaning has been gathered from its experiences; what qualities have developed as a result of the difficulties and challenges it has faced and, finally, what is the unique gift each soul contributes to the evolution of the Cosmos itself.
