The Illumined Self



Step #10, Luminous Perception – Day 1  Have we mentioned the soul yet? Perhaps not. The word soul derives from the Gothic saiwala and the Old German saiwalo; both meanings speak of origins. It is also connected etymologically with the greek aiolos, which means ‘quick moving,’ ‘twinkling,’ or iridescent,’ and with the latin anima, meaning ‘wind.’ Breath, source, and light: we’ve certainly mentioned those!

Eckhart Tolle has a lovely explanation of the soul, “The soul is your innermost being, the presence that you are beyond form. The consciousness that you are beyond form, that is the soul; that is who you are in essence.”

Today, we reach for the twinkling, iridescent aspect of ourselves; the soul.
