The essence of the Soul is Love
The essence of the soul is Love. Its nature is to be always loving, and you know this when you can get in touch with your soul. If it can’t be loving, it is sorrowful. That is the pain of the soul.
By contrast, the default nature of the personality-self is to compete, to acquire, to possess – both people and possessions. If it can’t get what it desires, it will feel sorrow too. But it’s a very different sorrow.
Your soul just wants you to love and to be free.
And as your soul becomes more apparent to your conscious awareness, you notice your awakened soul really can’t tolerate too much of the wilfulness of your ego existence.
So understand the contrast, and the conflict. The only solution to this is to become your true self, living from the heart of the soul. And interestingly enough, the more you live from soul, the more you transcend the sorrow of the ego, which ultimately is transformed into great compassion, and becomes very pure.
Thus you begin to have compassion for your own loss and grief, and for the pain of humanity, You have compassion for those with negative behaviours and attitudes, understanding that they are living in a kind of hell.
Compassion is powerful, and compassion is healing. The Light empowers compassion, and the compassion also empowers the Light. They go hand-in-hand together and eventually they become one. They come through you, they are not of you, and help you to solve the world’s problems. You already understand how to solve the world problem- exactly the same way as you solve your own. There’s no other way. That means, when the heart and mind is clear, the problem is already solved.
