She caught me off guard when my soul said to me,
“Have we met?”

So surprised I was to hear her speak like that I chuckled.

She began to sing a tale: “There was once a hardworking man who used to worry so much because he could not feed and clothe his children and wife the way he wanted.

There was a beautiful little chapel in the village where the man lived and one day while he was praying, an angel appeared.

The angel said, ‘Follow me.’ And he did out into an ancient forest.
‘Now dig here, ‘ the angel said. And the man felt strength in his limbs he had not known since youth and with just his bare hands he dug deep and found a lost treasure, and his relationship with the world changed.”

Finding our soul’s beauty does that-gives us tremendous freedom from worry.

“Dig here,” the angel said – “in your soul, in your soul.”

—St. John of the Cross
