As we settle into 2016, having circled our star another time on “spaceship earth”, it might be useful for us to take stock concerning our modest endeavor, “The Study of the Soul.”
First of all, thank you to all fellow journeyors who have been following the blog since the beginning or somewhere along the way.
Secondly, a big welcome to a huge influx of followers from The School of Sacred Ministries in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Thirdly, a huge, huge thank you to my niece Kate who has handled all of the technical aspects for her technologically challenged uncle. On behalf of all of us, Kate, sincere gratitude to you!
Slowly, but steadily, the number of people following the Study of the Soul continues to grow. We have thousands of hits from all over the planet. More interestingly are the countries represented. In December of 2015, for example, people from the following countries checked in:
Thanks to the miracle of the Internet, we can plant seeds all over the globe!
You and I pass across this stage of life so briefly, each of us trying to understand (stand under) the Truth. The Truth is eternal. It is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. But each generation helps to deepen our understanding of the truth. It is an awesome yet humbling task.
The words from the opera Adriana Lecouvreur come to mind:
“See: I can hardly breathe.
I am the humble servant
of the creative spirit:
He gives me the words,
I pass them on to people’s hearts.
I am only the voice of his verse,
the echo of the human drama,
the fragile instrument
he plays with his hand.
Mild, happy, terrible,
my name is Fidelity:
my voice is a breath
that tomorrow will die.”
May we all continue to speak the Truth, as we perceive it to be, with courage, honesty and integrity! Future generations not born are counting on us!
