Be alive

"Nothing is more important than the life of your soul, not even your body, and certainly not your career or business. Even those you love are of secondary importance to your need to be true within.
"To gain the whole world but lose your soul would be to pick up a toy riddled with woodworm and watch it disintegrate in your fingers. Whatever your outer-life goal/s - they're only a means, never an end. You have been given it like a spanner to perform another task. Who heard of anyone becoming attached to a spanner? The part that requires attention is the inner-life.
"The outer-life gets attention because its 'vehicle' requires servicing: feeding /clothing /housing /moving /responding to other people. In time the 'vehicle' dies, but the inner-life never dies. Never. However if the circumstances are cold and there’s no nourishment around it will go into a sort of hibernation. When you ignore your true self it gradually shrivels – and, because all spiritual law is organic and holistic, it cannot suddenly just jump back to being what it was: it has to be nurtured /tended /respected /loved back into full life. That is why you must keep a balance between these 2 aspects of your character no matter how intense your outer life."
