Your Pure Soul Presence

Your Pure Soul Presence

Take a moment to become aware of who is reading this page. Do you feel a presence? That presence is not your mind; it’s your soul. The mind might be saying, What am I going to have for lunch? or I wonder what time it is. The inner dialogue happens in the presence of the soul.

Thoughts come and go, feelings come and go. The molecules of the body come and go. But they come and go in this presence.This presence, the soul, recycles itself as your memories, your moods, and even your personality, because you don’t have the same personality today that you had when you were 5 years of age, or when you were 15.

You personality is an expression of the evolving universe; it’s constantly changing, growing, evolving, transforming.

Who is going through this experience? The real you–the you that we call pure consciousness, the field of intelligence, the inner self, the soul, the spirit, the infinite consciousness, the Being within you. Here, we have used all of these terms synonymously.

If you get in touch with this presence, if you really become intimate with it because it’s your own inner self, then you will know experientially, without anybody telling you, that this presence was there before you were born, and it will be there after you die.

Unfortunately, I'm afraid there are a lot of people out there who emotionally are the same now as they were at 5 or 15. I don't know why they have not evolved. Trauma perhaps, or illness, or just a life based on beliefs that started with flawed premises to begin with. And some people are still fighting that worn out battle over atheisiam verses religian. It's a stage we go thru on the way to the real thing.

Thinking of my soul always gives me a feeling of bliss and well-being.
