Are you choosing to live your life trusting in God's divine plan, your ego's plan or your Soul's drama?
Recently I have been pondering the difference between Soul and Spirit and found an answer that feels true for me. Sonia Choquette in her book Grace, Guidance & Gifts explains the difference stating that moving from limited human consciousness to limitless Divine Spiritual consciousness, merging our soul and our Divine Spirit, is our conscious human quest.
The soul contains all our feelings, involvements, learning, love, confusion and understanding from the moment of separation from source to the present, where we yearn for the moment of reunion. That is why the soul seeks, drawing from all of its experiences to achieve wholeness.
The Spirit is the timeless divine spark of holiness within, the eternal flame of light that has never been separated from Source. An extension of the One Spirit, our Spirit oversees the soul on its journey home. The soul is the "self" that experiences life, the spirit is the witness overseeing the "experiencing" part of you that is learning.
When ruled solely by the soul/ego, we tend to repeat old, outworn patterns of behavior, can become clouded by our perceptions, allow our ego's fears to outshine love. We become easily depressed and angered, and feel victimized.
When the Spirit within us rules, we have a clear and strong sense of who we our, know our boundaries, stand in strong emotion without loosing ourselves, see humor in all things and laugh at ourselves.
I have come to understand that my work with the Angels, beings of pure Divine Spirit, gives me and those that I work the with opportunity to move our focus toward our Spiritual nature. This allows me to guide my soul to surrender and follow the light. This does not mean that I no longer have challenges or feel victimized. It means that I don't stay there as long as I used to and reminds me to choose to dismantle the drama and liberate my soul with the power of my Spirit receiving all that I need from God.
I trust in God's divine plan over my ego's plan or my Soul's dramas.
