First is there a difference?
I’m not here to debate that but I found the answer to this unification of spirit and soul that resonated with me…
We are never perfect, nor will we always be in this state except for maybe some great yogi on top of a hill somewhere. But even he or she may be annoyed by the weather at times or a flea biting their foot.
But the way I understand the unity of soul and spirit is a balanced way of life. Embracing the shadows, after breaking down the salts and loving ourselves and others perfectly where they are.
This is not for the faint heart. It involves much introspection, looking at the parts of yourself that may not be your favorite. Some of it will change if it is possible, other parts will always be there and we need, I need to embrace them rather than run from them.
This unification occurs when one is able to do that I believe.
Kind of like being true to yourself but even more than that, actually loving those parts that are not so pretty.
Breaking down the salts for me has been my faith in the catholic church. Letting go of shame and guilt over matters which are questionable.
More to share on this later but for now recognizing that I still have not done this fully. But I will because I am an excellent student with good follow through.
peace, love and joy to all
