AND a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, Speak to us of Children.
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love
but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you can never visit,
not even in your dreams.
Before life on earth we have a soul. Part of our soul is composed of many
earthly expressions in parallel and in this life which you are aware of
you created this parallel expression. The nature of the soul is unlike
anything else in the universe or beyond. I might attempt to describe the
soul to you on these pages but every word I would attempt to find to write
would fail me. To avoid failure I will instead compare elements of the
soul and soul expression to earthly ideas of which you are familiar and
in doing so lead you on a journey where you will know all the answers
as I outline the questions before you.
In my life I have felt the expression of my soul and the souls of others
in a variety of ways, many of which will be familiar to you when you take
time to quietly reflect on what I write. When I ask you to recall what
it was like to fall in love for that very first time you will feel the
connection with an emotion which is divine for love is among all the other
emotions you have felt in your life to be the only one that is not human.
When I ask you to recall a time of fear you will imagine it but be unable
to recall the dimensions that such an experience provided you with at
the time. You will recall an outline only and when you compare this outline
of emotion with your recall of the feeling of love you will immediately
see how human and therefore incomplete all other emotions really are.
Just before the end of this earthly expression which we call death your
continued connection with this and other lives your soul expression created
the only human experience you will be able to access will be that of love.
Your fears, anger, jealousy will melt away in your mind just as your physical
body will be experienced as nothing more than what it is a vehicle for
the real you - your soul expression. In death no longer tied to your physical
body those who live on and had known your love will be able to communicate
with your continuing soul expression. But how and why? Time to understand
who you are and the immortality of your soul.
Later we will explore the larger dimensions of the soul so for now let's
stay with a clear understanding of how your soul creates life. We are
all born to parents through their physical union. Before conception male
and female are in existence in this time plane. We as a soul are about
to enter this plane again at this time and in this place. An expression
of your human life comes into being when a part of our soul creates this
life here on earth through the moulding of physical form in the nature
of our body. So does God create life? Yes, for we are all an expression
of what has been termed God and in creating our body we are creating life.
Here we realise that we or God is not there to bring into being suffering.
Often it is asked why a baby that is born disabled or a baby that is born
only to die a short time after birth should happen. The key to examining
this and other questions of apparent suffering is the value we place on
life. To think of disability as the wrath of God is to value someone who
is disabled as less. No person is less in terms of soul expression.
To think of the death of a baby a few hours after its birth is to value
that short life as less. The value of a child who grows into adult hood
is not greater, at a soul level, than a child who did not live beyond
a few hours. Both lives are expression of our divinity and you would hear
a parent tell you how their baby who lives on a few short hours was still
as important to them in the love they experienced and continue to experience.
The mother valued that baby even if the child did not succeed in sharing
years of its life experience with her here on earth. I now ask you to
understand these words and stop placing value on life in that way which
is common when it comes to blaming God. But to do so I recognise you will
have to realise something very important about life, death and your soul.
There is no life separate from the soul just as there is no death that
separates us from our soul. Life and death are simple states of being
and bring different forms of soul expression.
On the physical plane of energy expression - call it life - at the union
of two incarnate lovers an aspect of your soul took their physical expression
and moulded it to form your body. Was God involved - yes for you are and
always will be an expression of God so God was present then as now in
Another question before we move on. What if these two people didn't love
each other and their union was apparently a question of carnal pleasure.
From the soul perspective you are filled with love at the point of your
creating what is termed conception. From such a perspective you realise
more than these who are incarnate and in their simple expression, stripped
of lust, drunkenness, whatever elements might appear to bring them together
there is one core element that you saw - your love for them and what experiences
for you to express and for them to receive they will provide. At some
point in their lives they will remember their soul expression as the core
of their being and you will share this with them at such point in time
to create union of understanding.
Now a physical form known as a baby grows in the womb of one who is incarnate.
Part of your soul expression occasionally links to this form and moulds
its growth and development throughout the ensuing months. At the moment
of birth which is a powerful physical experience, your soul expression
will be in that body to know of birth. After your birth this aspect of
your soul expression will leave the physical body it has created for periods
of time. Throughout the remainder of your life there will be many times
when you leave your physical body just as in early childhood but to a
much lesser degree for most people.
Why do we require this separation from our physical body? Because it is
not possible for this aspect of our soul expression to continually remain
in a physical human form. Remember that your physical body is simply a
small vehicle in which resides a part of your soul.
The physical body, created and then nourished for the remainder of your
life through the expression of your soul element, is designed for you
to have the experiences of receiving and expressing which human life can
provide. Human lives are only a small but important part of your soul
expression resulting in times when you unite fully with other aspects
of your soul expression during periods we call sleep.
There are other times when you create such a union and some of these are
conscious. Recall a time when you made love with another and touched the
divine within them and yourself. Recall times of going within when listening
to music, meditation, and intense peace or during a period of 'grace'
and know all through connecting with the divine being you really are.
With the physical form in place your soul's expression on the journey
in this life has begun once again. Day, weeks, months and then years pass
and at each passing of time your soul expression weaves around it physical
form, thoughts, understanding, insights and ultimately expression. In
doing so we master this strange world in time and space called life and
learn to both express and respond until the time is ready for our soul
to finally take command. Such command may express itself early in a life
whereas for others such command emerges much later. For some only hours
before their earthly death.
The aspect of your soul which is incarnate in what we call life has moulded
our body for a purpose but how many of you now remember in your adult
life this as you progress through each day, each week, each month and
every year of your life? Do you notice how wake up calls make you step
into a question of meaning about who you are, where you are going and
what you are both expressing achieving and receiving from others?
For many they allow their life to be only defined by their boss, their
partner, children, parents and friends rather than reflect and create
their own personal meaning in life. Here they allow their humanness to
take complete control and define their world rather than letting their
soul express fully how their life can be. This experience was designed
by your soul to experience being disconnected and not knowing. So let
us now understand more fully what humanness can be and celebrate our lives
from a broader perspective. In doing so allow this book to provide the
affirmation that you are on the right path.
Humanness is full of emotions such as pain, joy, fear, courage, achievement
and finally, wonderment. No matter what age we might be we still have
our breath taken away at the wonder of the world we live in. To witness
the birth of a child, to contemplate the gift of life when we lose someone
close to us, to witness the achievement of others and to discover our
courage within. These gifts are what our life is composed of. Deep within
our unconscious we know that one day our time here will end. It may end
when we least expect it or we may slowly let go of life. For some at their
death they will reflect on the life they have lived as well spent. For
others there may be regrets about lost opportunities.
Why is it so different from one person to another? Let's answer this question
by simply understanding what it is for a part of your soul to take on
the mantle of being human. A wake up call is simply a clear uninterrupted
connection with our soul expression unifying with our non incarnate energy
so we are in complete flow.
When you are born your soul connection is still strong in that you have
not learned what it is to be human. The connection with our parallel lives
still exists and so we have yet to become fully aware of the parallel
life we are now creating to marry with all our other lives as vechicles
as aspects of our soul expression in the physical human plane. You can
experience a body but have no understanding of the world around you. Remember
this is an adventure and is bound by a strange imagined idea called time.
As you grow you are taught about time and in doing so begin to live your
life around such a structure which you share with others who believe in
it. In addition to learning about time you learn many other things initially
from the people around you, as you grow, from the people you meet beyond
the world of the family.
These people allow you to know love, comfort and freedom. These people
also introduce you to fear, they sometimes create in your anger and jealousy.
You realise how slowly life progresses and that thoughts do not immediately
result in change. Your childish mind gradually becomes confused and creates
a challenge to your soul's full expression. What an adventure for what
an experiment your choice for life has brought you.
Now let's move from childhood to where you are age wise right now in your
life. Are you making sense of your current human experience and the experiences
you have had so far? Are there any areas that you don't appear to have
a handle on and if so what are you doing right now to gain insight? If
you have dreams are they becoming real and if not why not? There is no
one holding you back from achieving your dreams if they are yours and
not others. Now here is an interesting thought for you and will make some
of the positive power talk gurus shudder. If a part of you is holding
you back from making these dreams in your mind happen could it be for
an important reason - that part of you simply doesn't want or really need
