The night sky envelops the earth in the absence of the sun. The light from countless stars who continually shine on the entire universe become visible. Yet these stars are always there and always shining. They give off light wether we observe them or not. Much like the soul, it's vastness is there wether we observe it or not. Are we not mirrors for the universe, each of us our own universe to explore? This thought has come up many times in the past but not been so clear to me. What like the sun or clouds blinds us from what is always there? Over the years I have explored many different disciplines and styles of spirituality designed in one way or another to clear away those obstructions between reality and our soul. All I can say at this point that I feel has value is this: You must search and seek relentlessly until the truth is laid bare.
