For those wishing to live more from your Spirit/Soul–here is some advice from Yusef.
- It is willingness that opens the door.
- It is desire that accelerates growth.
- It is effort that bears results.
- It is discipline that maintains the focus.
- It is silence that allows communion [with Source/The Father].
And I would also add my Earthly voice…. The Soul is who you truly are. Let go of what is NOT Soul. Just as Michelangelo chipped away at the marble stone to reveal the “David” within it, so you can chip away at your human ego to reveal your Soul within.
Let go of Ego–that part of you that is concerned, worried, anxious, angry, frustrated, impatient, and controlling. That is so difficult in our busy human lives, because ego is what we know best. But read again what Yusef says. Be willing to see; desire to see. Then make the following effort….
Stand beside yourself and NOTICE what you are doing or feeling, OBSERVE how you are talking, what you are afraid of, what your concerns are. DO NOT JUDGE any of your behaviors or feelings, just observe them. i.e. Some examples: Oh, wow, listen to me saying that. Or, Ooh, I seem to be really angry about that. Or, Look at me working so hard to control this situation. Or, Ouch, I think that hurt my pride.
The you that is standing beside, noticing, is your Soul Self. The more you practice this discipline, the more you will be living from your Soul Self. You will begin to be more and more uncomfortable in the ego and realize that the ego self is NOT YOU! And you will shift more often and more easily into Soul/Spirit thinking, feeling, and acting.
Then as much as you are able, sit in silence from your Soul and just BE with God.
Oh, this just makes me want to jump for joy!!
