Is much of the world in a deep sleep? are we below the surface trying to navigate towards the current to catapult us into life? Being and feeling alive?

Most of us can admit, life takes us one way while our souls crave to move in another… 

We are led to believe that a good job, nice home and a car, “good friends” and acceptance from people we don’t even know is the way to live, that striving for all these things will bring us bliss and happiness… On a level all these will bring a certain degree of comfort and stability and of course happiness, but long term happiness I’m not so convinced…

Because the soul is a restless being within, it desires, it needs more and less…

The soul needs to be awake, it needs more, and to get more it must give more. It also needs less, we don’t realise this until we take a step back; less consumerism, less gossip, less judging, less comparison, less negativity, less relying on others and having unrealistic expectations of them, less wanting what others have, less of battering ourselves into the submission of people who are asleep, it needs more compassion, humility, peace and love.  For the soul to flourish we need more and less.

To get more we must give more, what can we give more of what do we have that is, or can potentially be unlimited… Can love be unlimited? What about humility? Compassion? I think if we actively tried to give more of these intangible assets to others we will get more of what we need, then I think we can be alive and wake up the world with us as we go along…
