The Spiritual Force
As humans we are all walking the path of life because of the spiritual force of the universe. We call this prana or the force that gives rise to all of life. We are here with a body, a mind and soul working to undo some piece of karma.
The body is the vehicle. The mind is the GPS. The soul is the part of you that sits beneath your body and behind the mind. Sometimes you get a hunch, a feeling or perhaps a quiet moment when you sense the nature of your soul. In that moment you know you are touching something deeper within yourself. The soul holds your mission and so the spiritual force initiates the process of discovery. This is how we learn, know and master our lives. Practicing karma yoga helps us to initiate the process of discovering which requires balance, strength, flexibility and the ability to find peace amongst the chaos of life.
Your soul has taken this body and this mind to complete your karmic mission. It’s up to you to discover the mission, get on the path, and walk with your soul. Most likely anyone who says they are spiritual may in fact simply mean that they are soulfully walking the spiritual path one step at a time. They are not the spiritual force; that’s prana, but because of the spiritual force they are on earth to walk the path. You are a soul walking the spiritual path and not the spiritual force walking the soulful path. There is a difference. The soul is you. The spirit is the force that gives rise to existence. “May the force be with you.”
