Soul Searching

“The soul has been given its own ears to hear things that the mind does not understand.” Rumi

Your body, your mind and soul works together and are synonymous with who you are.

We naturally take care of our body with nutrition and exercising and this incorporates taking care of our mind. When we do some soul searching, by examining our conscious, are we feeding and exercising the soul?  

Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul.” Dorothy Day

Our soul, the very essence of who we are! The soul allows you to feel and just be, by allowing you to care, to love, feeding the conscience, building your mind. Through all of this it individualises you. I often do introspection, examining my thoughts and feelings, especially when I feel stuck and uninspired.

“In a world where everyone wears a mask, it’s a privilege to see a soul.” Anonymous

I prompt myself to get started and I get inspired to be:

Be kind, this can but only reciprocate

Be caring and loving, the world needs this

Be empathetic, be drawn to understanding one another

Be you, by encompassing all good

“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” Desmond Tutu

Marching into Autumn

Here in the Southern Hemisphere, marching into autumn reminds me how march (much) I love autumn😊 Yes, you right if you guessed that it’s the beginning of autumn here in the month of March. Autumn (Fall) is usually warm and dry with days getting shorter and the temperature cooling as it gets nearer to winter. Autumn in South Africa parades in light showers that are generally accompanied by heavy clouds. During autumn, the country experiences sunshine during the day and moderate rainfalls. The nights during autumn are usually cold.

During the day I cannot help but enjoy the warm sunshine that helps to embrace the usually cold night. The spectacular, red, yellow, and brown colours are more reasons to embrace the season. I know my yard will be filled with leaves especially from the old oak tree, but that’s the beauty of autumn for me. The leaves can be quite a mess, as many would point this out, but I choose to appreciate the mess and the beauty of it all.
