Here's how you know:
- You face challenges and life circumstances that, at times, are overwhelming and seem insurmountable.
- You look around you and wonder what you were thinking when you chose what you were going to experience in this lifetime.
- You often feel 'not of this world' and feel out of step with those who are content to simply 'go along'.
- You are empathic and your heart aches terribly when you encounter injustice or inhumanity.
- You crave solitude.
If this describes you, take heart. You're not alone. On this planet and in this space and time there are many Old Souls who have chosen to do the heavy lifting for Humanity. They have chosen the circumstances that nearly break their Spirit but still choose to stand in the Light. They forgive the unforgivable and constantly offer compassion to their fellow Humans, even when that compassion is unappreciated and unacknowledged. They keep putting one foot in front of the other when everyone would understand their sitting the next challenge out. They shine their Light even when they are unsure of its brightness.
If you are earning your Spiritual PHD I offer you compassion and gratitude. Without you this world would be a darker place.
