‘Your soul journey is like a river, it has its own ebbs and flows. Life is a journey which takes you through many experiences, often into uncharted waters.
Your life experiences create opportunities for you to discover the truth of who you are.’
This illustration was designed to represent how the river of life flows, regardless of any obstacle. It also denotes that life will take you to the emotional labyrinth of your soul’s unconsciousness.
A labyrinth is a maze with only one entry point; your birth into a physical body. The entry point becomes the exit point with the death of your physical body.
You journey through the labyrinth of life, experiencing many twists and turns as you live the complexities of your soul’s unconsciousness. If you become lost in your labyrinth, you stagnate until you are ready to be truthful about what sustains your cyclic patterns of oppression. This is represented by the whirlpools. Curiosity and truthfulness enable you to walk the path of your labyrinth, learning from the truth of yourself.
‘You have to walk through your own emotional labyrinth, before you can know the truth of who you are.’
As you experience life, that which is unresolved within you is revealed and you have the freedom (freewill) to ignore, deny or truthfully address what is revealed.
The labyrinth represents the storehouse of your unresolved emotions, barriers to truth, framework of soul oppression and control structures that you use to protect your denial of the significance of your soul. As you walk the labyrinth, layers of your soul’s unconsciousness are revealed, and at the same time the currents of life expose your soul’s consciousness.
The flow of the river always stems from truth and represents the opportunity to resolve what impedes your awareness of your soul. The truth of both consciousness and unconsciousness impact the river, but the free-flowing river is nurtured by your acceptance of truth.
You will experience the consciousness and unconsciousness of others and the obstacles of your own unconscious creation. These experiences are opportunities the river of life provides for you to learn from. You are a soul, and you internally yearn to be of the truth of your soul.
This lifetime is part of your eternal soul journey, and this book is dedicated to you. May you find the courage and honesty to explore beyond your limited perception of yourself, to discover the truth of your soul.’
