“Nurture your soul and your life will be happy and peaceful” said a wiseman. What is nurturing our soul? How do we do that? Why is it important? Many questions come out of these wonderful words of wisdom. Nurturing soul is giving what it is looking for. Imagine you do actions to satisfy everyone in this world except your spouse. How peacefully you would be in that situation? We are all a poor peasant with a pair of hands to do action. We know how to nurture the field, plant the seeds, apply nutrients to make it grow, remove the weeds, water it regularly until it grows to its life size. Once it matures, we know how to harvest. We perform our actions throughout the life cycle but fail to ask what the owner wants from us. We are married to the princess, and we are ready to shower her with gifts, wealth and are ready for the pomp and show but what she expects from us is sheer love and nothing else as she had been showered with all that we feel like offering already. Imagine a vessel that gets filled only when we think, see, love, listen and seek the content in it. There is a famous movie song in Tamil that says, "We are holding a begging bowl consist of flesh, bones, etc." As long as we remain aloof to the content of this vessel, our body performs actions at its free will with the help of the Life Force. We are better of seeking this sweet nectar (the content) that satiates our hunger once and for all as opposed to seeking something in the world that gives only a temperary satisfaction. The base or foundation of our soul is our lifeforce that gives us energy to think, talk and do our actions. Once we nourish the soul, it will begin to feed us and guide us. As the soul grows stronger it begins blessing us with wider vision. The greatest gift of the Life Force to us is the power to act, to rise above our own paralysis and to transform intention to achievement. The delusion that we are a separate being alone in the world has grown into unbelievable proportion while the soul remains stranded, unfed, and unheard, waiting for us to notice and to listen. Once we begin noticing the soul, give love and nourishment, it will begin feeding us with high level of wisdom and secrets of oneness. It will make us believe that the blessings we seek are closer than we know it. We must begin looking at the agitation that happens in our mind. Why is it happening? It is happening because we are operating outside the scope of our soul and fail to sync with the unwritten code that is practiced by most lives outside of our specie. Ignoring the soul can lead to a life of confusion and unwise decisions. Without the soul’s voice to guide us, we may begin making poor choices. We seek out false comforts, destructive habits. We can fool ourselves into believing all is well for a while. Lost in the dark without a map, we stagger aimlessly, we bump into things and cling to them even though they are not suited for us. The true extent of the problem may not become clear to us until we experience a full-blown crisis. These are moments when the soul’s anguished voice pierces through our certainties. We drag our shaken selves to the therapist’s office, where we begin to see that the choices, we made did not save us, did not satisfy us, did not nourish us on the deepest levels of our being. It is unsettling to know that marginalized soul (Eternal) leads a life of a recluse completely detached from the actions and at some point, makes a hard decision to leave us and be with is source in the supernal realm. That is experiencing death before we leave our mortal coil. It means our spiritual being left us unattended and guided by anyone. We do come across situations like that in real life and claim a person is without a soul when he does things ruthlessly. Is it possible to get back the runaway soul? Healing the soul begins with heeding the soul. We must begin feeding it, tending it and shower our love to it. Some may say that to heal the soul, one must extinguish the ego that has taken over. But the ego is here for a reason. The ego gives us our drive and our character. It would be unwise to crush it. We do, however, need to teach the ego to listen so that it would be more productive while obedient to the soul. The moto is not to nourish the delusion but to try to overcome it.
