Soul Connections

November 13, 2021


I was in my office yesterday when a stag ran past the window. Not five feet away. 

In this time of seasonal transitions I’ve been spending much time with the Earth energies, especially the energies of the Seven Nations that I wrote about last June. And I am reminded that at the most basic level it’s all soul connection. So in this post there is nothing more profound than that. And nothing less profound.

The word animal comes from the Latin animalis, meaning having soul. And they do.

This is from John O’Donohue’s blessing In Praise Of The Earth.

Let us remember within us
The ancient clay,
Holding the memory of seasons,
The passion of the wind,
The fluency of water,
The warmth of fire,
The quiver-touch of the sun
And the shadowed sureness of the moon.

That we may awaken,
To live to the full
The dream of the earth
Who chose us to emerge
And incarnate its hidden night
In mind, spirit and light.

Indeed. May we all awaken to live the full dream.
