~ All About Soul (remix) | Billy Joel ~
"We live in a world that needs more soul, more meaning. We, as conscious beings, have, as our primary responsibility, at this time in human history, the task of bringing soul into the world, or releasing soul into the world. We do this, first of all, in ourselves and in our own personal world; then we do it in our groups - including family; then we do it in our society through our work, relationships and presence there."
"Joy that comes out of sorrow" . . . a line from Billy Joel's song All About Soul struck me as very odd and I'm trying to figure it out.
When I found the above quote, it made me think of that song.
As I read the quote again and again as I listen to the song, I realized that I'm a million miles away from everything. I've momentarily lost my soul.
I'm just getting over some kind of vicious virus that did not want to go away and my tooth decided to give me a hard time again, so now I'm dealing with a swollen face and sinus problems. Guess that all plays into the mix. I'm tired of not feeling good for a long stretch of time.
It is irritating me that at a time when I should be continuing to search for the new meaning I've been looking for in my life, I have to deal with some kind of physical pain. I'm usually stronger than this. I want my "soul" back! It feels dark and cold and out of control.
Joy that comes out of sorrow . . . maybe that is the lesson.
God has put me in this place and time . . . my hope and faith needs to carry me through the conclusion of this lesson as I continue my journey to attain the harmony that comes from peace,love and happiness.
Aren't we all on that journey in one way or another?
