“Our minds can trick us and our hearts can blind us, but our souls play no such games.”
I developed that statement quite organically from an inspiring exchange being held on a social media group for enlightenment and purpose. It stemmed from the OP referencing courage and the four elements, and using our life force.
My initial thought after reading her statement had me replying, “elements don’t have their own life force and don’t require courage like human souls. I believe courage is straight from the heart if you have enough self-love you will find the courage necessary for whatever comes your way”.
Someone reading the thread commented, “interesting the way you have categorized and described courage separately from… The tin man’s heart and the scarecrow’s brain.”
After reading it several times and then re-reading the whole thread, I really wasn’t quite sure how to process that. My original intent for the reply I posted was not connected to the Wizard of Oz in any way, however it pinged my POS because it was a perfect analogy and I don’t believe the OP was referencing courage from an Oz point of view.
As synchronicity would have it, and once again with my personal Soular Guide, Carolyn Myss sent a link out to her email list of a workshop on The Wizard of Oz. Like so many times before, the universe cues me up for something of great importance on a personal level and this time was no different was it? Somehow, I am messaged about the Heart, Mind and Soul connection, such as this social media post did with the Wizard of Oz and then within a weeks’ time, I am attending a virtual workshop of Carolyn’s on that subject! That is how synchronicity works, so please drop the mic.
But I digress, since her take on my post was so on target, I replied with, “Err…I did? Lol”, and to which she smiled back at with an emoji. I left it there and proceeded with my day, and after further contemplation, this came to mind. “The heart and the mind will never see eye to eye and both can be easily manipulated and conditioned but that is not true for the soul. It’s your ‘Soular Self’ that requires full time conscientious care and real self-love. That’s the ultimate path to courage and what’s needed for the real, honest to goodness hard work. Our minds can trick us, and our hearts can blind us, but the soul plays no games.”
She loved it! “Beautiful. That’s a “tweetable” as Oprah might say, very well said!”
Thank you, LN, for your awe-inspiring help in pulling this out of me!
