Soul Love


“Soul love is serene because it is accepting.  It accepts the universe as it is; it allows things to be the way they are.  Your soul does not live in a world of polarity…Your soul loves others regardless of how they live their lives, act, dress, speak, or behave.  Your soul does not put up walls. Instead it melts barriers through its acceptance…If you feel resistance to accepting people [as they are], discover and evolve the subpersonality who does not want to accept others. Start by loving and accepting this part of yourself…Accepting does not mean allowing someone to abuse or hurt you, nor does it mean staying in a relationship that is harmful to you. You can love and accept others at the soul level, yet choose not to be around them.  Notice how serene you feel when you radiate an accepting love.  You stop struggling, resisting, or fighting against anyone or anything.  You work for things you believe in, rather than against anyone or anything.”

-Sanaya Roman (1997) Soul Love: Awakening Your Heart Centers. H.J. Kramer, p. 71-73

 

“In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west;  people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true.”

-The Buddha

    So wonderful a post Angela … There is no distinction. Acceptance at soul level is the solution . Thank you! Much Love- Robyn Lee

    • Haha–you were commenting on my post just as I was commenting on yours. “I’ll meet you there.” What a beautiful line by Rumi–thank you for sharing it. The words of sages are such blessings. Much love to you, too, my dear Robyn.

  3. Love this post. Recognizing the connection I have with people on a soul level has allowed me to accept more than I ever could before. It helped a great deal when I was going through a divorce a number of years ago. Thank you for sharing.

  4. I love Sanaya Roman’s books- they’re fab!
