Deeper Union
By Barbara Brennan

Life experiences arising from activities
that you have chosen through the gift of free will,
according to your personal truth
the sounding board of all of your life experiences
whatever form, whatever century
whatever planet, whatever body,
joined with your spiritual longing,
fuse the essence of your core
your purpose in the moment
and the levels of the field,
serve to fill the purpose
of your soul’s incarnation

These life activities chosen by your truth
can be extremely complicated, intricate
thought processes,
extremely simple
anything in-between.

To fulfill the purpose of the soul
is to create deeper union.

Gayle’s Reflection:

This one is where I am in this moment recognizing my life choices and experiences. Some were clearly of my own free will while other choices came upon me from somewhere else. Sometimes we follow by choice the will of others. Sometimes the will of other is thrust upon us and we must comply.

Being raised by a widow who struggled to provide, we were transient in our residences. This was thrust upon me. Having various outsiders and relatives also living in our home was thrust upon me. I was not consulted nor asked my feelings in these matters. I had only to endure it. Most of it had traumatizing effects.

When my tribe of five cousins joined us I was surprised to be able to feel so connected to my people. A deeper union to knowing them began. I shared my bedroom and loved being with them every day. We came to live together and were all living in shock because a younger brother was killed in a car accident. A scene we came upon after a holiday party. This terror was thrust upon us. We grieved together and anesthetized ourselves a lot in those days. So much pain.

During those days our sadness often went unspoken. Overall, I knew my early life had led me on a path of grief. It has helped me understand introspection and query the meaning of life. This sounding board of my life experience has driven me toward my purpose for my life and soul’s evolution.

Since those high school days the cousins have dispersed and passed away too. I miss you all, love you very much and sometimes long for that time of deeper union. Bye for now… G,C, W, A, D, J, and A

Thank you Barbara I have more clarity around the levels of grief and love I have experienced.
See you tomorrow,
Love, Gayle.
