“The external world is a canvas where you paint with the colors of your soul.” ~ Michael Beckwith
So many times, we put all of our energy and time into satisfying our outer world. We think if we have the perfect job, car, house, or lover, life will be perfect and we will feel happy.
But happy is a feeling. And feelings come from inside us. We must cultivate our inner world in order to experience long lasting joy and happiness. Once you free your soul and allow it to have full expression in your life, it will become easier to create the life you desire.
Our soul knows more about the purpose of our lives than our minds ever could. But we must learn to truth our souls and not trifle it’s expression. We stifle our souls by not being creative, not doing what makes us happy, and by focusing more on the outside world than the inner callings of our soul.
Outside influences are much louder than our soul. When our soul talks to us, it’s quiet, but firm. It’s consistent but subtle. It’s not screaming and it’s not worrisome. That’s the ego.
Learn to recognize your soul. Listen to it. And follow it. It can create a much better life than you can even imagine.
