F*ing Friday is postponed until tomorrow …you’ll soon find out why.
Today we are continuing the wrap up of 2011.
So much has changed in my world, in this year, that I am dedicating a full day to each of my promises: head, heart, body and soul.
Because if I have learned anything this year, it is this: the magic is in reflection.
Part 4: soul
This whole soul thing has taken me a while to figure out. On Day 184, smack dab in the middle of the year, I contemplated my depth and understanding of the soul.
I was confused to say the least.
And then something happened.
As the days went on I began to understand my soul like never before. As if I could feel it, as if this whole cosmic universe finally made sense.
It took a little more than a two 21-day meditation challenges. And, it didn’t hurt that a few masseuses seem to have more spiritual insight into my life than I ever could imagine.
But, in the end, I found a place deep inside myself I always knew was there, something I felt even as a young child — a connection to spirit, to source, to light, to what-have-you.
As I’ve said before, I suppose it’s no surprise that I started off this year first taking care of my body with food and exercise and then my head with books and research and meditation. With each day my heart opened and then finally, as if it took all three components to work together as a key, something turned inside me, as if my soul was unlocked.
It has brought me many gifts, including bringing me closer to the spirit of my mother, to the souls of my ancestors, to the light in my own life.
On many days, it has even brought me to tears.
Today, on the eve of Day 365, it brings me great happiness to know this year may be over but my promise will never end.
Because nothing ends.
We all go on.
See you tomorrow.
