The aspects of ourselves that we access when we recognize that there is so much more to us than this little I; when we step beyond this illusion of separateness, and realize that we are capable of so much more than we realize beyond this physical reality.
Embracing all that we are. Embracing all we can BE.
As Human Beings we are such intricate creatures. There are so many elements that make us who we are today; our upbringing, our schooling, our friends, our environment, our culture, our work, even the time spent in the womb leaves it’s trace. Every single event, every single person we come into contact with leaves their mark in some shape or form, to whatever degree that may be.
Furthermore that which is to be impacted is the physical, the mental, the emotional, and the spiritual. We consist of our physical body; our features, our shape, the color of our skin. We have our thoughts, the quality of thoughts, whether they are erratic jumping form one thing to the next, and the tendencies of our thoughts (worrying, learning, analyzing, fantasizing, etc.). We experience emotions, our habitual emotions, or perhaps our subconscious tendencies to manipulate others. Then we might experience some sense of spirituality; a greater sense of self, a sense of purpose, a sense of being a part of something larger than the individual, the recognition that what we say, what we do impacts others.
A great fascination of mine is what it means to be human, why we are who we are, and how we can grow to be the fullest expressions of who we are. We all have so much potential, we all have something so unique to share with this world.
So what is the soul?
Perhaps it’s this aspect of ourselves that transcends the physical, that recognizes and realizes just how great our potential can be. That we have access to so much more than we might realize upon this physical material plane.
It’s the recognition of all of the energetic components at play and that we are sensitive to this energetic web that we are a essential part of. That as we begin to recognize and honor these aspects of ourselves that are beyond the mind, we grow, expand, and flourish. Uncovering deeper and deeper layers of ourselves, while manifesting more and more. We begin to access all this potential, and become more and more at ease with ourselves and thus in turn, with life.
That these expressions are beyond the small I, and begin to encompass the whole. We begin to realize we are a part of a much larger interweb, an essential part which is incessantly impacting us, and which we are also continuously impacting.
So yes, indeed, Soul Expressions; it’s a continuous, never ending journey, the explorations we can undergo to discover more and more what this might mean, and how this might manifest itself.
So this shall be the theme that is explored in my upcoming exhibition, Soul Expressions.
