The Tears of the Soul

Blame it on Paulo Coelho, The Great Alchemist. Or rather, thank him for it.

It was a small passage that I read in his latest book, Aleph, which released a soul memory in me, a month or so ago. Since that moment, I have been turning the idea for this blog around & around in my head.

Recently, my wonderful friend C happened to blog about tears. A happy coincidence….otherwise known as Synchronicity giving me a head’s up that it was time to write this.

So this soul, my Blue Soul (for the roots of my name see About Anima Blue) thought it was time to blog about a special experience, about The Tears of the Soul.

The Tears of the Soul are not like tears that come from the human heart. Tears from the heart can be about grief, sadness, pain, heartbtreak and occasionally happiness.

But The Tears of the Soul come from the most profound place within ourselves. Within our souls. The Tears of the Soul come out only when you experience the most sublime experiences, when you have become totally *immersed* in the deepest bliss. In those times you are literally One With The Universe and that incredible fount of endless unconditional love and almost heart-breaking beauty.

Reading a few words by The Great Alchemist brought me back to that place.

The place and time and dimension when I wheeled among the stars and moon and soared with the Anima Mundi, the world soul, which consists of all the souls of the world united in one voice, one light, one love.

The place beyond compassion, beyond empathy (which says a lot considering how empathic I am). There is no need for any compassion at all at this level. Because the soul next to you, and every single other soul around you is perfect and made of the most amazingly pure energy. Souls don’t hate. Souls don’t worry about every day problems. For the soul knows it is infinite and eternally perfect.

How incredibly beautiful it is for me to cry those Tears of the Soul, when I am simply overcome by this bliss. It’s Rumi’s “Soul Of The Soul Of The Soul.” The soul opening all the way to its deepest profound centre, like the petals of a lotus blossom, or the energy vortex of the chakras. Layers upon layers of the soul and soulfulness.

“Oh soul,
you worry too much.
You have seen your own strength.
You have seen your own beauty.
You have seen your golden wings.
Of anything less,
why do you worry?
You are in truth
the soul, of the soul, of the soul.”
– Rumi

I have been blessed with having experienced such moments in this life-time.

Many times I have experienced these Tears of the Soul moments when I am alone, in the most ordinary of places, like when I am riding the subway. Sometimes I am overcome when I look around and see all the Higher Selves travelling around me and their incredibly luminous light.

And there are times when I have shared such a deep moment of sharing with friends that those Tears of the Soul just effortlessly spill out of my eyes in gratitude of this special sharing with others. With my soul brothers and sisters.

I have been so blessed by this gift.

Sometimes I forget the experience, this mind-transcending experience. But one day, my Alpha & Omega Self , always reminds me, as I make it back to a universe of bliss.

May you experience The Tears of the Soul at least once in your life, dear readers.

 You will know then * know * you are as you were meant to be.

 Blessed be,
Anima blue 🙂
