Flight of the Soul

10885082_900477003326314_2200676249171424367_nFriendship is where we learn how to trust ourselves with another person, where we share all of ourselves, and in the beauty of our friend relationships we learn how to live out our fullest potential.

I hold friendship in the highest regard.  Every day, every hour, I witness great and powerful acts of friendship and love.  It is an honor to place my self in the seat of relationship with the many miraculous people I am privileged to know and love.

“When perfect friendship exists either between two hearts or within a group of hearts in a spiritual relationship, such friendship perfects each individual. The heart purified by friendship provides an open door to unity. Through it you invite other souls to enter the temple of brotherhood – those who love you, and even those who love you not…”

We all have our ways of being in the world moving through what we need to in each of our lifetimes.  Having friends makes everything easier.  Thanks to all those I am lucky enough to call friend.

IN whatever language you want to play back the essence of the soul, the same evocative feeling pours forth from source, one of Flight of the Soul’s inspirations, German born Rudolph Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul in an Italian translation I find amusing and contented and inspired…
 
parlano dello stesso fatto
l’amicizia divina
 
cio che
vogliamo condurre
diretto ad una chiara e certa meta
 
English Translation
speak of the same fact
the divine friendship
 
what you
want to conduct
directed to a clear and firm goal
 
One of my early teachers, a Monk from the tradition of Self Realization Fellowship….

If we know anybody in our lives who really love us enough to want to help us, to tell us the hard things, they are our greatest friends. Because happy talk only goes so far, because our soul knows – I’ve got blind spots. I’m in denial. I have addictions. I’m really upside down on many things.   If somebody, in a loving enough way, can slip me that little message to even help me on that road, and let me know they’re going to love me before, during and after the process. That is the highest degree of friendship.  – – Craig Marshall from the documentary Secrets of Love

However your life is in its present time.  Get on the Friendship Train with the Fabulous Gladys Night and the Pips and make today a day that you celebrate your brothers in all their ups and downs and ways of being in your life.  Cherish them as we take these important steps as a world together into more and more love as way of being…

Here are the lyrics… (they are profound and powerful, songs of the soul)

Calling out to everyone across the nation
Said, “The world is in a desperate situation
Stealing, burning, fighting, killing
Nothing but corruption”

It looks like mankind in on the eve of destruction
Oh yes, it is people, let me tell you now
We’ve got to learn to live with each other

No, no matter what the race, creed or color
I just got to tell you what the world needs now
Is love and understanding get on board the Friendship Train

Everybody shake a hand, shake a hand
People I’m talking about the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, make a friend now
Listen to us now, we’re doing our thing
On the Friendship Train 

We’ve got to start today to make tomorrow
A brighter day for our children
Oh, calm down people now we can do it
I can prove it but only if our hearts are willing

Now, so get on board the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, shake a hand
Yes, I’m talking about the Friendship Train
Come on buddy, shake a hand, make a friend

No, no, no, it don’t matter what you look like
People or who you are
If your heart is in the right place
Talking about the right place
You’re welcome on the board now

This train stands for justice
This train stands for freedom
This train stands for harmony and peace
This train stands for love, love

Come on, get on the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, shake a hand
I’m talking about the Friendship Train
Come on buddy, shake a hand, make a friend, now

People listen to me now
Harmony is the key, my sisters and brothers
Oh yes, it is I say
Harmony is the key, my sisters and brothers

People, we can’t wait ’cause another day might be too late
Come on, get on the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, shake a hand, now
I’m talking about the Friendship Train
Get on board and shake a hand, make a friend, now

 

Enjoy a a little interpretive poetic expression with Rudolph Steiner entry point.

Mutual evolution of the soul.
Divine friendship
Support each others soul ful journey
What is the soul doing
Higher purpose
 
I sit opposite you and I am taken over
Life becomes now
And in your presence
I feel contained
This is a first
In the pantheon of emotional connection
And attachment
I don’t know what to do
I am not sure how to take the steps forward
 
I am opening myself up more and more to the experience of receiving love
I wish for it to flow through
Wrap its way around me
Enter into me
And give over to every part of that other space
I join with you
I live through you
And your light guides me with every action I take
In this space of total love and compete acceptance
I take every step forward
Necessary for my development
Living within my heart space
And entering the long distance romance of eternity and the instant
