The soul has got awareness of us and of what is happening to us. But we do not have an awareness of the soul.
It is not possible to be aware of the soul. The soul is outside the field of our awareness. With it, she resonates, and we can resonate with her. We can feel, in rare occasions, her presence. The soul mostly communicates by feeling, very very fine and high feeling. Awareness is the language of the consciousness, feelings and sensations is the language of the soul. Those are two different languages.
When there is rudeness or ugliness or aggression, the soul feels it. The soul needs to be sensitive in order not to be injured. The soul is living all the time in great fear. And whenever she feels a threat, she shrinks and runs inside to hide, before the terror manages to reach and injure her. Nothing is more painful and more horrible to her than being injured.
The soul basically has got the wish to integrate in our kingdom and to be spacious and to be in communication. She loves to communicate and she hates loneliness. But she is very very gentle and very very fine. She is a very high princess that is forced to live in the dungeon of the lower aspect of the human kingdom, which is the base of the spine.
So she wants 2 things: to expand and to go up. She wants to expand in order to feel herself, she can’t feel herself when she is contracted. And she wants to go up, because she wants to unite with the masculine aspect, which is the consciousness (in the head). And these are her two wishes.
She is the feminine aspect of the self, in us she is a guest and at the same time she is the inner/higher part of the self.
She is the lotus in the swamp, she comes from the lowest spot in the body but the lower spot is not her home, this is her prison. (She also get further prisoned by dominance).
So she becomes imprisoned when she is forced to do two things: going down and contracting. And (likewise) she can have two freedoms: going up and expanding. So she loves to be out of her contracted prison, either up or out.
No one feels soul presence, because almost no one is at the level of the soul.
There are three things that the soul wants:
- to expand
- To go up,
- To communicate with other souls.
In the normal state of the soul, unfortunately, she doesn’t do any of those three, she is in a terrible situation. Most of the time, She is in pain and in prison and in isolation. People live their whole life without being in contact with their soul, not even once.
And the soul presence is female, by orientation.
And the state of the soul is the state of women; both are suppressed.
Women represent the soul as much as men represent consciousness.
When one’s soul meets his consciousness, they are in communion and they are actually giving birth to the new self. And each time the soul and the consciousness meet, another part of oneself is being born.
The soul is the Ying (the female) aspect and is also called: Shakti in Kundalini yoga, and as it has written before, she is situated at the base of the spine, whereas the consciousness which is Yang, the male aspect, is situated in the head, and when the soul is freed she rises up the spine and when she meets the head an enlightenment, or Satori in Zen teaching, or consciousness awakening – is happening.
