My Heart, Soul, and Spirit

"The meaning of life is our knowing participation with the greater powers around us, in us, and within us. " by _Robert James Liguori ___________________
The breath of my life is my soul, it takes courage to look into your mind; to seek your true identity, I have seen the recesses of my heart. Seen my ego- the source of self, the vital core essence of existence; have found my spiritual parts, considered immortality of soul. I was brought up Roman Catholic, religion doctrine drilled into me; but also listened to grandma, about her Ojibway teachings and ways. About the spirits in the sky, to honor the eagle who touches God; and I also found great Buddha, his teachings for a peaceful way of life. Have found meditation is strength, I like Tarot cards and quotes meaningful; learned to accept this earthly life, and how to feed my spiritual soul.

Soulful introspective into the contradictions and insights in the mix of Eastern and Western thought. Certainly enough to confuse and confound the best of us. If equanimity is achieved it is nearly a miracle in itself in the face of oncoming egoistic illusion. Fine work. Congratulations.

Constance, who can NOT applaud your open-heartedness. Some say open-mindedness, I cannot: behind my mind, I find, mostly thought on rewind. But soul --- dive into Soul (intellect, will, emotions) and connect to body and spirit. Thanx for everyone in your life, especially O grandma

Very soulful poem Constance, I'm sure it will do well in the contest. I too, have learned Love from the mindful thoughts presented in many of the worlds religions. I believe all that seek the Truth will find theirs. There's value in all words and deeds which come from a loving heart. The world needs more love. Thanks for sharing your soul felt thoughts. A poet friend, Bill
