Are You Dead or Alive?

“Safety is the most unsafe spiritual path you can take. Safety keeps you numb and dead. People are caught by surprise when it is time to die. They have allowed themselves to live so little.” – Stephen Levine – Handbook for the Soul

“When people speak of nourishing the soul, they mean opening the heart to the subtle whisper in the mind. The soul, the life spark, is your essential nature. When the soul leaves, the body experiences death. We’ve got it backward. We believe we need the body to live. The truth is, the body needs us. The soul is the spark for the great fire…. There is nothing to do but be.” Stephen Levine – Handbook for the Soul (pp 49-50)
