The Humanity Of Soul

Posted by Phillip Gordon on Wednesday, October 14, 2009
The gift to humanity.  Joseph Campbell talks about the holy grail as the gift to humanity.  While the two bands of angels were fighting, another group, who were dedicated to the human condition came on down and left the grail for us.  It represents the bounty of humanity.  I like the idea.  As it is for me only when we really incarnate here, really inhabit our human state that we get anywhere close to being alive, and then we can experience the grandeur of it all.  It is through being human that we find The Mystery. In fact I think the human being is the greatest mystery to us.  And I do hope it will always be the case, for that is the adventure, that is the land of discovery.  The magic in life is us.  What has this got to do with soul.  Well that is the point. It is not through chasing some abstract idea that will bring it on home, rather through being all that you are, living an authentic life, embracing your gifts, your fears, living real, that is what will give you soul.  For kindness, compassion, love can only be explored  from a human perspective.
