Nature and the Human Soul

Start close in,
don’t take the second step
or the third,
start with the first thing close in,
the step you don’t want to take.
Start with the ground you know . . .

~ David Whyte


Many souls are now partially awakened, and they do not need much more Light to become fully awakened.

Your own creative powers will be enhanced but until you evolve you further there are limitations as to how far you can go.

In essence you are an ENERGY OF LOVE … This is how you became. You will always be an ENERGY OF LOVE even though you may choose to experience different pictures of how to portray this ENERGY OF LOVE that you are.

For instance … if you were to decide to yourself as a tree for two hundred years … you are at liberty to do so. You can be anything you choose to be . . .
