Gregory Barrette Articles

You are a soul in evolution and every experience in your life is there
to move your soul forward.

When you are dealing with a difficult person, this means that you can
say "I am using this person to heal my soul". When you are dealing
with a difficult situation, you can say to yourself "This can only
bless me. This can only heal me". Everything in your life becomes the
stuff out of which you soul gets to evolve.

But what is your soul?

It's hard to talk about because it's not physical. You cannot measure it.

Maybe we have a wrong idea about the soul. Do you think that you have
a soul? Or do you think that you ARE a soul? That changes everything.

Then you share the experience of the Catholic mystic Pierre Teilhard
deChardin, who said "We are not human beings having a spiritual
experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." Once
you identify yourself with the soul first, what Jesus called "the
kingdom", "the pearl of great price", "the treasure in the field", all
of which is really your soul consciousness and true essence, then you
begin to live your life from within out.

I used to think of my soul as bobbing way up above me, like a helium
balloon on a string. I thought that maybe through hard work or some
mystical experience, I might be able to pull that balloon down and
experience my soul, hugging it tightly. That is, until somebody pissed
me off and then I'd let go of it and it'd go flying back up into the
blue yonder.

But that's not my soul. Because I don't have a soul. I AM my soul.

I might forget about that fact, but it is always true nonetheless. And
knowing this changes everything.

What does it take to generate this soul experience? The desire for it.
And it is worth every effort we make to gain it. The healing of the
soul, the unfoldment of the soul, the evolution and subsequent
enlightenment of the soul is worth whatever it takes. It truly is the
pearl of great price.

As the great Sufi mystic poet Rumi wrote, "Listen, o drop, give
yourself up without regret, and in exchange, gain the entire ocean.
Listen, o drop, bestow upon yourself this honor and in the arms of the
sea become secure. Who in the name of God could be so fortunate? An
ocean wooing a drop? In God's name, in God's name, sell and buy at
once! Give up a drop and take this sea full of pearls!"
