Vehicle of the Soul
If someone gives you a manual on how to build a car engine, you would say ok, I can go now and build a car engine.
Now, without experience, do you think it will be easy or straightforward? Or do you think that maybe, you will encounter problems?
Maybe, there will be parts left over after you have built it. Maybe, it just wont work even though you followed the manual. Then you doubt the manual, its source, and then you are confused.
You have a broken engine and no guidance. So what do you do? You ask for help from people you think will know. You look for another manual on the subject, to see if it helps. All the while, your engine sits broken.
Once you realise that you have to start from scratch, start with the one bolt, the one pipe, then understand the connection to the next part and so on, you will look at each part, separately, that would eventually make the whole.
So you combine the personal experience of help, with the experience of the manuals and work on each individual part, experiencing the working function of each, until you eventually form the engine, built from your experience drawn around you.
So then your engine may then start. When you have the engine running, off you go, heading into the next chapter, how to navigate the world or environment that you choose to drive in. So the cycle starts again, from friends, family, manuals etc. So life becomes an experience of experiences, only now, you are writing the manual for others to follow, to guide them on their pathway, their journey.
Every individual part of your life will be each nut and bolt. You have to examine each part, the emotions, the love, the fear. You have to experience within and then gather understanding until you are ready to move forward.
You can turn your old rust bucket car into a Ferrari if you wish, if that is your want, your desire, to make a life better for yourself in whichever form that takes, again, the choice is yours, always.
So you come to a point where your experiences have accumulated, Your soul ‘is’ the vehicle, the vehicle is the driving force In your life. If you steer a course straight to love and courage, you will find that quality within, you shall turn your vehicle into that which you seek. There is no other way. It is within us, and what’s more, we are all part of the same vehicle, but having different experiences, at different stages. So each of us are in separate parts, but also part of the whole.
Above all, seek within, ‘be’ the driving force of your own soul. Steer to the unconditional source that is the divine intelligence, that divine source that helps you build the road to truth, to unconditional love – to enlightenment.
