One of the true reasons for living is to know oneself.

Growing up in a society where soul is denied seems almost an impossible task.

When soul is denied, law and order become our signposts. True power gets twisted and domination rules. The beauty of our soul hides in the jungle of mass consciousness.

My soul supports me to be courageous in my thoughts, feelings and actions, so I can leave behind my automatic conformities to rules. This did not happen overnight. A preparation was necessary. I had to make a conscious effort every day, again and again.

When being in a state of conscious aspiration and sincerely inviting my soul to guide me, I observed that everything in my life is arranged to support me in my progress so I can gratefully put aside what is hindering me on my quest to live deeply from my soul.

When I found New Equations, the joy of being connected with my soul gained momentum and an important piece which had been missing fell into place: I now clearly experience the connection IN MY BODY.

For many years I had questioned how spirit can reveal itself in matter and through my body. I understood that the soul has different ways of expression, but up to the point of being Soultyped, the incredible physical strength of my soul had been absolutely hidden for me, as well as the beautiful experience of my body and soul in oneness.

From regularly doing the Spiritual Postures and Postures of Strength, my body began changing. Old behaviors began to leave my body, my mind, and my emotions. I could allow myself a widening of consciousness without fear of losing myself within the vastness of the new consciousness terrain I was (and still am) exploring, because my body gives me supportive structure that I can totally trust.

While living more and more in the strength of my soul, my courage to step out of the consensus reality is growing, as well. This began naturally, without thinking about it—almost like a new kind of automatism. I now experience on a deep level that true freedom means a change of government inside me: my soul has become the ruler of my life. It is a choice. The foundation for this conscious choice is commitment—the commitment to go all the way, with endurance, determination and dedication.
