"Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside". - Cassandra Clare
Life is strange. It bestows on us new challenges each day. It makes sure that we keep on our toes and the warriors in us never gets tired.
In this whole process of accepting challenges and fighting with the outside world we sometimes tend to forget our insides. What lies within us. Our souls.
We fail to understand that no matter the problems we face, the conflicts that go around us, the issues we are forced to tackle, our soul always takes part in our fights. And that is why it is utmost important to nourish and replenish it.
Replenishing the soul is hard and easy at the same.
All it requires is a way to navigate through it. A way to seep and extract what goes in and the desires it harbours.
Our soul isn't timid or weak. It is not even shy. It is simply too modest and too patient. It would never shout or nudge you every now and then to listen or understand its needs. It simply waits. Hopeful, that you will eye through.
To understand its demands. To accept the realities you have been running from. To accept your own needs. To find the things which make you grow and heal and love
"The soul is placed in the body like a rough diamond, and must be polished, or the luster of it will never appear". -Daniel Defoe
Simply put you need to wade through your inner self. Navigate, trying to ascertain where you are and where you want to be.
Just like while driving, we navigate to find the direction of a place we want to go. We take the help of technology and also listen to what our impulses say. It is by this collaboration that we are able to find our way with ease.
In a similar way, navigating through our souls is important to locate things which would help us move on the desired path.
Surprising it is that if you part ways or forget to replenish the soul, life seems to be lost somewhere.
It really gets difficult to cope up with the hardships and problems.
We may give it any name. Call it depression, fear, sadness, gloom. All of it are just synonymous to this phenomenon of unnourished soul.
The moment you understand it and begin to seek solace within, things start to get better. The process of 'soul navigation' is the cure you need. It is all the therapy that is required to bring you back to an equilibrium. To set you back on a healthy and happy life.
