Short and Sweet #64 – Mind vs. Soul


In earlier posts, I mentioned that everything has its purpose and place in this world. That is because everything is divinely created and orchestrated, which means it also includes the things we dislike and do not understand. It is up to us to awaken so we can see clearly; otherwise, we will continue to live an unbalanced or destructive life. Most of us can see that the world is out of balance yet we cannot see it in our own lives. It is important to recognize that this unbalance is a reflection of our own unbalance and not separate or caused by something outside of us. Once we see this then and only then will things begin to change. When topics of God, spirituality and other higher subjects are discussed, many go up into the mind for answers. Once the intellect is engaged, we can no longer see clearly about these aspects of our life. The reason for this is easily seen through the various ideas and different opinions expressed by intellectual people who speculate and express their different ways of looking at these things. Yet when we look at what the prophets and sages who came before us said we can clearly see that they speak the same truths even though they may use different words. How can this happen? It is because they speak from the truth of the Soul. The mind cannot comprehend the vastness of creation but once we rise above the mind we become soul conscious and connect with the light and knowledge of the Divine. Yes the mind and intellect has its place, but we must be able to distinguish between what the mind thinks and what the soul knows. We can only experience this through awakening it cannot be intellectualized or known through thoughts of the mind.
