Meadow of the Soul

As the world seems to become an increasingly hectic place it is becoming more prudent for us to find a place of sanctuary inside ourselves. A space to center ourselves and find peace, balance, and understanding when such a place may not be immediately available in our physical environment. This haven is, however, always available to us in our internal environment, if we choose to search for and maintain it.

Each human has been given an infinitely generous gift from the universe; the gift of a life capable of immense consciousness. Consider that as a part of this gift, we are each presented an inner space with which to cultivate what we wish to share with the world. This is the Meadow of the Soul, in which we have the opportunity to grow an abundance of flowers.

This is a place where we can retreat to find peace and to manifest the way in which we may spread peace to others. Most of us have experienced this place of warmth, openness, and welcoming emanating from our most true self.

This meadow in each of our centers has the same potential for great beauty as every other. Equipped from the start with everything necessary for growth to begin, we are given no gardening manual. The knowledge of how to grow this garden is already inside us. Our part to play is choosing what elements may enter this space and which plants or energies we choose to cultivate within its infinite bounds.

The flowers we may or may not choose to grow here are what we offer to the world. These are the gifts of love we create within ourselves to release into the world around us. The flowers present in the meadow are there to be picked, to be given freely to those surrounding us.

With unsurpassable admiration, sing to the meadow, and to the flowers, tend to them with your chi, touch each petal as it unfurls with the utmost tenderness. Endow the meadow with all of the cosmic love that courses through you.

I choose to see it rather than picking of flowers as sharing your flowers in another meadow, so that new and different flowers will bloom in your and other people's meadows as you interact and give lovingly to each other.

Thank you Laura Shults for that inspired writing and for inspiring all these readers. This is the type of writing I would like to read every day.

It would be wonderful if you could collect your thoughts with a view to publishing a booklet to be used and read as short daily guidance. It would serve to awaken us to the beauty of our inner lives. What you write uplifts us and focuses us on the wonder of life. Your words almost serve to polish a little dull light burning inside us so that we can greet the new day glowing with love. Thank you....
