Metaphors for Spiritual Energy
Live well and save your soul. Life is evolving, unfolding. As participants, we feel it growing and moving. The direction is one we can only influence. It is important for me to imagine that I can warm myself by leaning into life’s flame. To think that I can evolve and mature, simply by facing and growing toward life’s light, is meaningful to me. My personal purpose in life is to live well, fulfill my potential, and graciously I find that I can utilize the energy and “Spiritual Momentum” to guide me and keep me safe on my journey.
The big Hollywood screen has often portrayed life’s destiny as an aggressive battle. This may make for an entertaining evening at the movies, but is, I think, inaccurate. Life’s mission, I shall call it, is likely less of a battle and more of an inner journey, and a challenge to live well. It could be about saving your soul. Life’s purpose, if we are to call it a purpose at all, is played, more eloquently on a landscape of love rather than on a battlefield.
