I’m not a body with a soul, I’m a soul that has a visible part called the body.” Paulo Coelho
Have you ever stood above yourself and gazed down and watched your body doing something mundane?
Have you ever been in the midst of a crowd of talking, laughing, with excited people and found yourself all alone?
Have you ever been in the middle of a conversation and forgotten completely what you were saying?
You’re having an out of body experience. You’re a soul, not truly present, with a body that’s a stand-in during that split second in time.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where the correct response, at that moment, is violence, anger, frustration, maybe harsh words, and yet…something in you makes you immediately turn around and walk away?
The human mind and body have a tendency to react in a specific manner to specific events. This is how our bodies are wired–we respond, react. When the mind takes over, we are weighing our options. When the soul takes over, you are no longer on this plane. Instead, you are two steps outside your physical existence closer to the essence of who you could be, all the time if you only allowed your soul to speak.
I want to live in a world where everyone has become enlightened or more conscious, where everyone recognizes that inside, we are all the same.
Yes, I’m a dreamer but I love this about me.
