Today, I visited Robert Frost's home. It was a look back in time. Each of us focus on daily needs and wants while forgeting to review our own souls. This experience gave me a look into a man's life that changed the course of history through poetic words and brought pride to the New England States.

Robert was a simple man who had great respect for nature and allowed it to reveal to him the heart of creation itself, if not, the heart of God. Take a walk through the woods on Frost's farm and remember days of old when country living was seen as an expression of gratitude for the One who created what we call earth.

Product Description
The Path into Healing is a model for healing through the feminine side of the soul. The purpose of this book is to outline a process whereby a person can understand and acquaint him or herself with an aspect of our awareness often neglected in our world today. Much of the emphasis in our world is on what a person can achieve without regard to how these achievements affect the world and the people living in these achievements. The Path into Healing is an attempt to give acknowledgment to the inner qualities of living that our outer world thrusts upon us. Just think for a moment what a child does and says when he/she gets hurt. They want their mommy. Why is it that when we are hurt, we look to the feminine soul to give us strength and direction. On September 11, 2001, the first thing we did when New York City was bombed was to turn inside ourselves in prayer, for direction, and for hope beyond our external world being destroyed around us. This inward look into a world that is with us throughout our life is a womb like state of being. Inside us is an incredible source of strength and energy capable of nurturing a dying person through death, helping us rebuild what is destroyed in our external world, and transforming the most drastic event into a presence of peace. Thus is the world of the feminine spirit.

The more you understand about any subject, the more interesting it becomes. As you read this article you'll find that the subject of human beings meeting in soul is certainly no exception.

This is done in several ways:

You can do this as you care for a dying loved one.

You can do this in putting a bandaide on a child who is hurt.

You can do this when you offer forgiveness to someone who has harmed you.

You essentually do this any time you reach out to help someone in need.

You meet in soul when a baby is born.

You meet in soul each moment of living when you remember who you are.

Truthfully, the only difference between you and the so-called gurus is time. If you'll invest a little more time in reading and living, you'll be that much closer to maturity status when it comes to living in soul. Learning how to live in soul requires reflective analysis and the ability to learn from your mistakes. Insodoing, we gain in wisdom through remembering who we really are. The instant we remember we are souls having a human experience creates in us a journey into what is most sacred to us.

This is the key to maturing in soul. "Insight" means to see from within. The moment you begin to see through your eyes and not just with them makes you a visionary. A "Visionary" follows his or her dreams or inner visions within them. This is an "act in faith" as though something is already here before it arrives. At this point, you begin to put into place the details of your overall vision through yourself and others.

If your inner vision involves helping someone, yourself, or something die, you will need to draw much of your attention inward. This will enable you to create a vision that will help someone or yourself find comfort in becoming more soul than body over time. If your task is to help something or an event die, your job is to transform this experience into something different. Nothing stays the same. We are all in transformation. Transformation means to go beyond form. It is out of the formless all things become form. Everyone of us have this capacity.

Somehow, in the midst of change and sharing our joys and our sorrows, our hearts meet to care. This is the level of soul care and soul healing not meant to be understood, but rather, embraced. Here our souls meet and come to fulfill a purpose and a destiny.

Hopefully the sections above have contributed to your understanding of Souls meeting one another. Share your new understanding about Where Souls Meet with others. They'll thank you for it.

     A Good Friend Sent me this, and I want to share this with everyone.

     There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated
everyone, except her loving boyfriend.  He was always there for her.  She
told her boyfriend, If I could only see the world, I will marry you.  Then
one day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her.  When the bandages came
off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend.
     He asked her; now that you can see the world, will you marry me? the
girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind.  The sight of his
closed eyelids shocked her.  She hadnt expected that.  The thought of
looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.  Her
boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: take
good care of your eyes, my dear; for before they were yours, they were
     This is how the human brain often works when our status changes.  Only
a very few remember what life is like before, and who was always by their
side in the most painful situations. Life is a gift.
