From Other souls

Psyche’s Call by Donna May

“A real story touches not only the mind but also the imagination and the unconscious depths in a person, and it may remain with him or her through many years, coming to the surface of consciousness now and then to yield new insights.” ~Helen M. Luke, The Way of Woman

We Are

We do not become healers.
We came as healers. We are.
Some of us are still catching up to what we are.
We do not become storytellers.
We came as carriers of the stories
we and our ancestors actually lived. We are.
Some of us are still catching up to what we are.
We do not become artists. We came as artists. We are.
Some of us are still catching up to what we are.
We do not become writers.. dancers.. musicians.. helpers.. peacemakers. We came as such. We are.

Some of us are still catching up to what we are.
We do not learn to love in this sense.
We came as Love. We are Love.
Some of us are still catching up to who we truly are.

Psyche’s Call with Donna May

P.S. Moore, or More More

My apologies, as it occurs to me that not everyone would know who Thomas Moore is. That is Saint Thomas Moore, from the 15th century, hence the prophetic words quoted in the previous post. To provide information, with credit to Thomas More – Wikipedia:

Sir Thomas More (7 February 1478 – 6 July 1535), venerated in the Catholic Church as Saint Thomas More,[7][8] was an English lawyer, social philosopher, author, statesman, and noted Renaissance humanist. He also served Henry VIII as Lord High Chancellor of England from October 1529 to May 1532.[9] He wrote Utopia, published in 1516,[10] which describes the political system of an imaginary island state. He had died before it was published.

The play, A Man For All Seasons was about Sir Thomas. He ultimately met his end (as did many) at the hands of King Henry VIII’s executioner. It should be noted that his last name was spelled both ways: More and Moore.

Today—or—Synchronicity Unbound

Thomas Eakins – Amelia van Buren with a Cat on her Shoulder.

“As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know. Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.” ~ Carl Jung

Today I am attending the Jung Platform “Dreams and your Personal Journey.” So of course I am being inundated with things Jung and dreams. Synchronicity unbound! The course is 3 videos per day for 4 days.

And no, I am not ignoring the political transformation of the USA, nor am I removed from the fray. I have rejoined the fray in fact, as speaking out is also Action, and sometimes Action is not only required, but demanded. More directly on this later.
