The unity of the soul and the inner life: A meditation

One should not give up, neglect or forget for a moment his inner life, but he must learn to work within it, with it, and act out of it, so that the unity of his soul may break out into all his activities.Meister Eckhart

In order to fully and completely come to know ourselves and fully express ourselves in our life, we must go within. Within us is the storehouse or treasure trove of our soul, which is overflowing with an infinite number of gifts, creativity, love, potential, and wisdom.

Within us we can find the richness and riches of who we are. Once discovered, they will easily find a way to be expressed and manifested in our lives.

As we go within, we will be inspired to “right actions” and “right thoughts” and have deep inspirations about who we really are. z

Only meditation—the quiet mind—can open this door to our inner treasure and inheritance and help reveal to us our true nature.

The mind masks this inner realm. Meditation reveals it.

Until you have taken the time to look within, you are literally in the dark about yourself.

It’s all an inside job. Let your heart lead your way.

Just read through these words a few times in a meditative state. Let them feed your soul. Then just sit in meditation and see, sense, or feel whatever impressions, thoughts, feelings, or images arise for you. Be receptive, objective and open.

Be quiet in your mind, quiet in your senses, and, also, quiet in your body.
Then, when all these are quiet, don’t do anything. In that state truth will reveal itself to you. It will appear in front of you and ask,” what do you want?

One thought on “The unity of the soul and the inner life: A meditation”

  1. A heart and thought-provoking missive. Thank you!
    I do wonder, based upon my own practice:
    just sitting with all that is and accepting it, without quieting it or trying to control it leads me to “know” much about what is
    and paying careful attention to the myriad of body sensations—engendered by feelings, thoughts, emotions—leads me to unveiling much that is then able to be revealed.
