SEVEN STEPS TO SOUL
A Poetic Journey of Spiritual Transformation
By Suzan Caroll
THE SEVENTH STEP
Freedom ~ Living in Surrender
At first, Soul may seem far away and separate from our everyday life. But once our imagination has paved a path and established open communication with our SELF, we can begin to bring our Soul into our mundane world. This bringing in of the energy and guidance of our Soul is best accomplished if we can totally surrender to it. Our Soul is the portion of us that our inner child never forgot. Can we believe as adults what we knew as children?
Can we believe that we deserve our Soul’s presence in our daily life and allow it to work within and through us?
Can we accept the guidance that our Soul constantly and consistently offers?
There are many questions to be asked. To find our own answers we must go inside ~ inside ourselves. The answers may change with every quest. It is this search that makes up our life.
TAKING THE SEVENTH STEP
The seventh and final stairway was before her. Where would it take her and who would she become when she arrived? The stairway did not look at all familiar, yet it evoked a loneliness deep inside of her. She wanted to travel up the stairs, but at the same time, she feared them. She closed her eyes to calm herself and took a deep breath. The awareness came upon her slowly like a misty dawn and filled her with the joy of the first day of spring after a long winter. She knew the stairway now. Actually, she felt it. This was the stairway HOME. She listened carefully to a silent call that tugged at her Soul. No it didn’t tug at her Soul, it WAS her Soul.
Now that she heard her Soul’s call, could she surrender to its Wisdom?
