Q:"Soul Searching"...How do I achieve this?
Difficult to say my friend, as I do not know where you are on this journey to begin with. In order for one to “Soul search,” they indeed must know and acknowledge their soul.
I will say this though, the mind has to be silenced. You have to relinquish its control over what you assume you are, which is the body reflected unto you in the mirror.
As I spoke on Twitter earlier, the mind’s confusion stems from repeating the same question over and over and over again - “Who am I?” - and the affinity between the mind and body is so close that the mind automatically attaches itself to the body. “I am my body,” “I am my thoughts,” “I am this feeling,” etc. etc. etc. Unknowingly creating this illusory self, your ego. This is the “I” you must dissolve before you can discover Who and What you truly are. Before you can see Truth. Before the unlimited potential of your consciousness can be released and you can begin to see All for what it Is; rather than “I, think it is.”
The search begins with meditation, silence, quiet, but it also takes a breakthrough. Everyone reaches a point, but it must be experienced and interpreted properly in order to unlock and unhinge the door so that Truth may finally overtake the false.
I can tell you this though, rid yourself of fear, express love and compassion to any and everyone and put it into everything that you do…and you may start seeing a great difference in your life. You may start seeing your true self, and in that your search can begin and end.
Much love, and God bless you.
