Whole Souul Living theme for December - Divinity
Preparation is the Whole Souul Living Theme for November, another time-honored yet deeply under-rated spiritual discipline. Preparation is the answer to the question, “What if I have to speak in front of hundreds of people?” It is the same answer to the question, “How can I live a more authentic life?” or any number of other pressing Life questions. Preparation forces us to get clear about our intentions, something else frequently overlooked by spiritual seekers.
As happens too often, modern culture gets it exactly backwards when it comes to Learning and Growth, assuming yet another commodity to be acquired for its practical or monetary value. But the wisdom teachings and spiritual traditions of the world would have us see a deeper dimension to learning and growth.

- from the Tao Te Ching, chapter 8
Do not ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go and do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
- Rev. Dr. Howard Thurman
