There is a world that lies beneath darkness and pain, a world untouched by fear. It is a world of immense beauty, one that offers a different kind of knowledge from that of the rational mind. It is a gentle, peaceful world, powerful beyond measure. It is the world of the soul.
Most of us have experienced this world without realising it: in the light of the setting sun; when peace comes without warning,; feeling at one with the mountains and trees.
We experience this world not because it exists outside, but because it is inside us. This world that is the soul is our essence, our true nature. It is what we are.
The soul arises deep within, in the lower part of the abdomen just below the navel. It fills our entire body. But it is not confined to the body, it extends outwards, far beyond the body. It has no beginning; it has no end. It is beyond space. It is timeless.
