I am offering my new book free on Amazon – July 5th.
There is a dynamic spiritual illumination within you. I discovered that energy after years of soul searching. In the prologue I reflect on a life-altering epiphany I experienced beside the ocean. Afterwards, I struggled for days to identify what had happened. A week later, during a walking meditation at the beach, the term Godlight was whispered into my quieted mind. For months before that Godlight epiphany I had been walking the beach to heal my injured knee. As I walked I took photos of whatever caught my eye and began writing a blog using the photos to inspire my posts. Before writing I would select an inspirational quote to seed my imagination. The quotes helped focus my “reflections” around a theme from the artistic to the spiritual.
When the coronavirus pandemic struck America, I refocused on increasing the meaningfulness of each post. In this way, I tried to heighten the positive impact for my readers. Something hidden deep inside my soul awakened as I emptied my mind and let nature inspire me. The prologue epiphany lit my life and I have been unpacking my soul since that day.
Nature is the inspirational mirror on which I visualized these written reflections. Peaceful contemplative walks in nature allow an individual to become aware of the deeper connection between the natural world and the soul. During peaceful strolls in nature, an earnest person can begin to unbox their soul. A unique path will unfold as the obscuring layers of the self are discarded. The lucid Godlight within will light the way naturally. Sincere appreciation for the holistic power of nature transcends the real world. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “In the woods we return to reason and faith…the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God.”
All religions offer paths to the same end – reuniting with the Divine. And a myriad of philosophies offer techniques to enhance self-awareness along the Way towards enlightenment and ultimately to transcendence. To begin unboxing your soul seek to no longer identify with your ego. Know that you are a whole, harmonious being. Becoming more self-aware and eventually self-actualized connects your spirit to greater levels of meaningful existence. These connections expose your heart and mind to higher spiritual realms which in turn alter your world in unique ways.
Childhood is a continuous act of self-expression. Sadly, this self-expression can be buried beneath emotional sedimentary layers of adult obligations. Many people spend their lives accumulating material possessions. The more things one has, the safer they feel. Their self-esteem remains generally centered on the materialistic. But others wonder if there is more to life than earthly wealth. You, dear reader, are one of those who are searching for a deeper meaning to life.
