To a person who lives from the soul’s perspective, giving up on some things would be perceived as strength. From a more spiritual point of view, it simply means that you are strong enough to let go of a situation that no longer serves your growth.
Don’t get me wrong – I am not advocating using this latter perception as an excuse to avoid things or people; but there are times in which a wise decision to conserve your integrity will override prostrating yourself to the crowd.
God enjoys the dance of life – and by dance of life, I mean everything in creation, known and unknown. So, as the Human extension of God, – the representative of God’s Earthly experience – why don’t you enjoy it?
So why don’t we? I’ll tell you why – it is because of our in-born fear of what might or might not happen in our futures.
“All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.”
- Walt Disney
An altruist will know that everything in thought is given power. With other words, everything we think is created energy. Creative energy is not discerning – we empower both love and fear – and what you empowered will be attracted to you. And even greater than that is the overriding force of the empowered thought of humanity as a whole and in general.
A person that lives from the perspective of the soul will now realise that for us to discover “new” empowered states, will, as humans, cause us to loose site of the safe harbour of our known perceptions for a while – sometimes even for a long time.
The person who does not dare to question anything will experience a meaningless life and will be constantly bombarded by petty dramatics in the home, with family and friends, at the office and with themselves. These are the kinds of people who only tell others what they want to hear. A person who has self-worth will be willing to speak their own truth.
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.”

14th Dalai Lama
I have heard of so many enlightened masters who have gone out to search for themselves – only to realise that at the end of that road they found God, and through searching for God, they found themselves.
There are “other” helpers, yes – etheric guides and spirits that assist us. There is your Soul and/or Higher-Self. There are many words for the same things, but at the end of the day, Humanity is simply another extension of creation – an opportunity for Universal Intelligence to experience another realm. God is very literally here – within and outside you. You are very literally God on Earth.
All we need to decide is to live this or not – either are your decision to make.
Will you be living to survive as a human or live from the perspective of the soul and live this corner of creation?
Having realised the above, the soul will also know that enlightenment has to come in stages, for if not, it will wholly overwhelm our senses instead of integrating them.
Now how does one put all of this into practice?
By seeing everybody as part of the process of Universal creation.
To love another human being is not about forming attachment, it is not about need, greed, expectancy or requirement – it is not even about giving yourself to that person – it is about seeing the face of God in another – any other – that will awaken in you the stirrings of unfathomable respect and honour for yourself.
All have the ability to change their perception, but only a view empower themselves to do so.
What face do you have?
A spiritual master knows that, within humanity, creativity requires great courage – the courage to let go all certainties. Our certainties are what is keeping us from enlightenment, because it instils needs and wants and buffers us from seeing or entertaining different opinions and experiences. It prevents us from experimenting and biases one to one set of rules.
Know that the rules that we as humanity have come up with are the rules that we gave ourselves. All religious and spiritual texts are written by human hand. All channelled information is spoken by human mouths. All divine inspiration is interpreted by human minds.
There is no separated force!
Free yourself from the expectations of others – give yourself the power of freedom through self-respect.
Mastery is found in not being any particular identity – and just being that,
and a master knows that he/she decides that for themselves.
Within this knowledge and action of no-identity, you will find your structure – even in the face of a world that will always label you and call you by many names.
Your true identity only lies with you. To live this knowledge throughout your life is to live life from the soul’s perspective.
To put it simply – it’s all in the attitude.
“Kindness in words creates confidence, kindness in thinking creates profoundness, kindness in feeling creates love.”
