Spring is here and although we do not go through dramatic transition from snow and ice to warm weather, we can definitely see a huge rise in blossoms as night-time temperatures are now back above 65 degrees (fahrenheit)
The soul body plus the essence of the soul, Parashakti and Parasiva, together equals the totality of the soul. The essence of the soul is being Siva and the soul body is becoming Siva. The soul body is maturing, growing. We suffer until we learn to control our body, mind and emotions achieving imperturbability even if we find out the world is going to end tomorrow. Calmness is a platform for meditation.
