These words from an epic poem of 24,000 verses became true knowledge for me the moment I was Soultyped:

The Spirit shall look out through Matter’s gaze.

And Matter shall reveal the Spirit’s face.

— Sri Aurobindo, Savitri, Book 11

I have read, heard, sank into, contemplated, and loved these words ever since I found them in Savitri, by Sri Aurobindo. I felt in my heart that their meaning is profound, truthful, and reveals a possible new future for humanity. Social systems, religions, and goodwill, have not been able to change the status of our world.

For me, the words were always connected to my body. I wanted to have a new consciousness dwelling in my body showing its face through me. I wanted to be connected to a higher truth than what life had presented to me. I looked far and near, outside and inside myself, found many answers, and kept always digging for more. 

These prophetic words from Savitri are a beautiful bridge to the wisdom of New Equations–Physical Expressions of the Soul

Matter Shall Reveal the Spirit’s Face

When I look at photos of people being Soultyped, remember my experience of being Soultyped, or hear people share their experiences of being Soultyped, it leads me back to Matter shall reveal the spirit’s face.

Witnessing the moment when a soul comes forward during Soultyping and illuminates the whole being is so touching that words fail me. A consciousness that has been dull, inert, and asleep for a lifetime in the body, suddenly starts shining and vibrating. And, without a how-to-do-it lesson, joy, harmony, truth, trust, and peace, become the new leaders of life. It is a birthing of the person’s true essence. This new being-ness lights everything around.

You might like to go back to the August issue of New Equations World and look again at the faces of those who were being Soultyped. The expression of the soul is so clear in their physicality—in matter! Such a burst of soul energy! Almost as if, finally, one is freed from being locked away and finds a new state of being.

Being aware and conscious of one’s soul opens a person for the truth of who they are. When not conscious of the soul, it is hidden. It’s as simple as that! Yet, so huge!

In this way, a new future can be birthed—a future in which the soul is not neglected, but is the source of our decisions, our actions, our relationships, our parenting, our education, joy, health, aspirations, and reasons for living. 

What was, and is, revealed in the work of New Equations, supports all of us to have access to a new reality—first for ourselves and then for the collective. This is where humanity is heading. It begins with me, my commitment to evolve and build a stronger and more expanded connection with the Source, and my soul—no matter what—while exploring the true foundation of me. 

When soul comes forward and shows its face, revealing its truth and strength, we will learn to have unshakable trust in a soul-based future for humanity. 

Much love to you,
