I once signed up to take a course by a master with an old soul who was coming to town for a week of teaching. I know he was an old soul cause it said
so right there on the poster. I couldn’t wait for the lessons to begin.
I’m not going to give his name because he’s still giving lessons and I don’t want to be sued, still. On the night the classes were to begin he
came out and spoke to the class for about 45 minutes and then opened the floor to questions. I shot my hand up over and over, hoping he would call
upon me. Finally he did.
I opened with, “You stated that all souls are eternal.” And he nodded kindly to me. I then asked, “If all souls are eternal, shouldn’t we all
be the same age? Why do you have an old soul and I do not when we should all be exactly one forever old?”
I was NOT trying to be a smart ass. It was an honest question. He stared at me for a solid minute before he answered. He said that some souls take
the hard lessons first and therefore learn more at an earlier age. He actually went into detail with it and I was quite happy with the answer he gave.
When the lesson was over and class dismissed I was walking towards the door when I was stopped and asked to come into the office. My money was
refunded to me and I was told not to come back. That sucked! That really, really sucked.
Since then I’ve had to develop my own theories on the age of the soul and why some of us are gifted and others are born to despair. They seem to
make sense to me and it helps to understand the nature of life and our roles in it.
I guess what I’m saying is don’t look to others for meaning. find it within yourself. Life is not a trail you are supposed to follow. It is a
trail you are to make for yourself.
Love and light,
