Today I was chatting to someone and he was deep in thought in that place of peace. I was at that opposite place. Mind racing and working through stuff. Nothing big ( well big for the one needing the information ) but not anything personal.
He said I felt very off to him and that I might need to do some “ Soul Searching”. We continued to chat for a bit, then I said maybe I needed some “ soul searching” .
Got me thinking what is “ Soul Searching” ? We have a Soul but that is on a path with us…..so are we doing searching for the Soul or for our racing minds ?
Soul Searching -
A penetrating examination of one’s motives , convictions, and attitudes.
Deep or critical examination of one’s beliefs
Displaying the characteristics of deep or painful self-analysis
The activity of thinking seriously about your feelings and beliefs in order to make a decision or to understand the reasons for your own behavior.
Careful though about your beliefs, attitudes, or actions because you think it is important to behave in an honest and moral way.
Then ye get the more Christian Views -
What is life all about ?
How does God fit into my World ?
Never realized how many ways just saying Soul Searching could open up too….
MORE I guess what I was looking for was DOWN TIME.
What are ye’s thoughts on Soul Searching when one goes into that space or maybe says it where does one get taken to in thought or actions ?
“In a castle on a hill
A past of war and haunt
An ancient secret love
Kept hidden by the hands of the stable boy
A knight and a witch
Secrets and promises
Deep in the war torn walls
Some codes forgotten by time
Some codes forever engraved in the minds of the new
Stories and legends
Kept in the walls of that castle on a hill”
