Thank You Thursday: Endurance of the Soul

Be thankful this day for Endurance of the Soul.

When we think of endurance, we think of the physical energy stored and exerted. The energy of the soul is everlasting, though times drained and needs renewal. When the energy of the soul is drained, it can stem from several areas; this can be from any form of fatigue, emotional unrest and most importantly not living in our purpose. When we are not living in our passion, our souls cries in agony. It desires the attention to change course to live in our passion/purpose. Yes some of us lead a double life, living to do what is necessary and in our passion, though it is only momentary. The part of our life we live in as necessary can cause the soul pain, manifesting as a form of illness. However, when the time is taking to find passion in the necessary, then there is balance until we fully move and transform our life to living in our passion. The question now becomes, how do we prepare our soul for the long haul of living a human life?
To prepare our soul, we first have to remember, we are pure energy, souls first and humans second. It is the job of the soul to care for the human vessel with the knowledge surrounding and in self. As an entity, we allow our humanity to take over the soul, living and experiencing all forms of bodily and mental sensations. As a soul living in a human form, we tend to forget who we are and revel in the human sensation. The sensations felt can encompass, ego, mental and physical stimulation, all forms of love and fear. This is to assist in the development of the human physique and enhance the human vessel. Our human experience is like nothing felt before, because of the sensations felt. Each mental of physical sensation felt offers a new sensation, which is the reason why we like to explore the spectrum of emotions. During the process of exploration, we tend to forget more of our soul and embrace our humanity. What we fail to realize is we are causing our soul pain. Our soul is the life force allowing us to experience what is chosen to be experienced. The human vessel we reside is can always be repaired, healed, and renewed, our soul can’t.

Living in the human life and being carried in the vessel we relinquish control unto the vessel. We long for the sensations felt over and over again; at the same time we disregard any messages our soul is attempting to convey. We cause or interpret a separation from our soul. The human self can’t be separate from the soul. There is a bond and covenant created between the two entities. In essence and truth, the human vessel and soul are one. It is our choice in which one we listen too, the human vessel or the soul.

Yes our human vessel provides us lessons and sensations, but it is the soul, our true self choosing what is best. How does the soul know what is best? We are innately capable of fielding out what can improve our life or harm us, some of us turn off or ignore the signals processed. We can only ignore or leave the switch in the off position for so long, until the soul comes into agony. The agony of the soul causes, sensations such as lack of care for self, being physically exhausted, lost in life direction, uncertainty, and a host of others sensations and emotions of the like. Listening to our heart, the soul offers us ways to see and hear things differently, even if it means recognizing the truth knowing it may cause a little pain. The pain felt is our ego giving way to the light of the soul. The soul knows best, because we have done this all before. 

Our soul has endured for centuries. We go back and forth between solid matter and pure energy. Our soul understands what is needed to be accomplished in this life, because it is done it in other lives and it is what we chose. When we have veered off track the soul signal us by feeling weary, feed-up, and in agony, then we have a choice to stay and feel what is being felt or change what is longing to be changed.  The question is how long can we endure, tolerate what was brought forth in our life to learn? Our endurance is only as strong as our soul. Once we graduate from the lessons, through releasing what is desired, then we can move forward and live in our passion as being one whole entity, the human vessel and soul.

Be thankful this day and everyday for the soul’s endurance to accomplish all that has been chosen.

Be thankful this day and everyday for the soul’s innate knowledge to know what is best to live in truth and passion.

Be thankful this day and everyday to live in the passion the soul desires bringing forth abundant joy!

This Entity

Living energy contained in a vessel

Desiring to be free

The way of peace soothes the union of duality

Settling into change


Transmutation of blended energies

Expansion of increasing energies

Lying in a fetal position waiting for the answer

Being reborn


Enduring the lesson

The choices made only to be fortified

Soon to be all that there is self


The mastery of self in moments incremental comes from stagnation partnered with reflection

There is more than it seems



Living connected


Lost all of previous thoughts


No longer relevant

Then struck with ah ha’s

Like a bolt of lightning there and gone


Having an extended stay

Flooding sensations flowing seedingly to birth truth in what is no longer


Fully awake


Knowing this make up

Pure light and energy from the light of creator and creation

A connection and flow of oneness


Carefree of joy


Living in peace

Holding love in the purest form to release it unto the universe


The light of dark spectrum seen and understood by the children


All filling the role asked and given

Reaching and longing for the hurt to end and freedom to begin


Having a body for this soul

A brain for this universal mind

All is connected

This entity called Hillis sees and feels all else and see and feels


An entity

A presence only to evolve through assisting others

Being a voice for others to speak through


Speak to me in a voice clearly heard

Knowing what is desired to be shared

Spoken for all to listen


Vibration shaken to the core

The spark of existence

The first ripple all felt coming to know bigger than this preconceived notion


The one entity

The entity connected to all forever linked

Bound by the totality the purest energy made

Made self and all else


The omnipresence of self to self

The omnipotent faculties of self for self

The entity is to itself experiencing self

Ever expanding and growing

The entity

As usual, your writings have caused me to stop and ponder my own struggles with the human/spirit existence. You answer questions and create questions, which in time will be answered for me. It remains a huge balancing act that will become easier with practice. Thank you so much for weekly encouragement and challenge!

Peace and love to you my friend!

Thank you kindly dear Hills. Your writings and thoughts/wisdom/knowledge takes philosophy, psychology and spirituality to a greater level, dear friend. Even though we go through times in our lives where questions arise in our heart, mind and soul regarding the matter of our true existence, we just have to read your profound pieces and gain a deeper understanding of what it is that we wish to be answered. Your connection to spirit and to the human experience is immense. You focus on melding the two into one - forming a union between the 'segregated' aspects of our experience. You teach us and show us the steps to take to achieve a deeper knowing of ourselves in this current experience, discovering our previous experiences in our truthful form and eternal life.

Thank you greatly.

May you be blessed with an abundance Hills. Please know you are helping many people with your write.

light and love
