Who would have thought that going to have my oil changed this morning would have dropped me into a space of reflection on devotion. Driving the streets of Austin to get there I spoke aloud the dedication that I say every morning which is: I am devoted to Being of absolute highest service to Source (God/Creator/Divine….)
All of a sudden it struck me that not only service to others, the planet…..and my car – but to my body, which is having a few challenges at the moment. It is this extraordinary flesh and blood container that houses the Soul which takes action on behalf of this dedication.
Many of the worlds religions, philosophies and schools of thought take us away from our bodies and ascend us into our heads or up and out. But wait I cry my leg roots are in the soil, my heart floats on the meandering river and my womb rests within a tree.
Of highest spiritual importance and devotion is this earthly substance that makes us human – crying for exquisite, gentle and mindful attention. Without we simply would not be here to serve….
Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time
Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day. Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.
Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship. Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.
