Shall We Allow Our Soul to Dance While Being Worriless?

–including a special poem by Paula Goodman

Many human beings tend to spend a lifetime searching for their soul wholeness, a very legitimate desire I would say! The question is, “does the search ever end?” Or even better, “is there a search at all?”

What if wholeness is a never-ending dance attainable one day and disappearing the next?

What if wholeness feels like a gentle breeze one day and like a tsunami of pure joy the next?

What if there isn’t a need for one soulmate; rather as many soul-friends or HOMES as we may interact with that specific day?

Most importantly, what if reaching wholeness is not even a crucial quest as long as we do our part and keep our hearts open to receive what the Universe has to generously offer?

It seems to me there is a fine line between interdependency and wholeness:

While interdependency is our responsibility reachable through breaking free from the grip of our conditioning and reconnecting with the servant leader in us who does not depend on anyone to live by the universal principles and nurture the spiritual dimension daily, wholeness involves others’ responsibility that we may not control!

How come, one may ask?

Appealingly, as spiritual beings living in the physical realm, we need to provide for ourselves and those who depend on us (physical dimension). Thus, we require others to pay us fairly for our contributions to the world.

Moreover, we may be the most knowledgeable, teachable, and curious individual (mental dimension), but if there is no one receiving our offering and using our mind creatively, then our potential wouldn’t make much difference in the world.

We also need healthy relationships (emotional dimension); that is the participation of other emotionally healthy folks who have a clear sense of the self and know that trust (the foundation and fuel of relationships) is deserved, built and that it takes two to dance!

So, shall we dance as much time as our soul would be granted in this body and not care about wholeness?

Author’s Note: All of the above was inspired by the magical poem below, authored by Paula Goodman:

“Dear #Soulmate…
My soul needs your soul…
To be #Whole”

Dear Soul…
Nurtured with another #soul
A person, #human, a physical role
If #we are #born to search and find
When did true #love become blind

Might it be we have another
Since we are born, told of #lovers
From our birth a #life involves

How to search beyond ourselves

A soul, a mate; a soulmate found
Brings one to even higher grounds
If you find the search is over
Love in your soul has found its #partner

In your soul that is the highest
Love from here is the brightest
Seekers of the souls inside us

Give their souls the love to find this

Beautiful People
A soul belongs to the #universe
Be good to your soul while on #earth

I am deeply passionate about everything life has to offer. Writing has been my very favorite means to educate my audience, captivate their attention, talk to their emotions, and make them relate and take action. I have been honored by working as a columnist for BIZCATALYST 360°, an Award-Winning life, culture, and biz new media digest, serving as the global hub for enhanced performance and well-being, during 2020. Also, I am a contributing author in Mayhem to Miracles: True Stories of Courage, Triumph, and Peace. I am so in love with writing that I have a peaceful smile drawn on my face whenever I start visualizing the books I will be writing for whoever will be tempted to discover an inclusive philosophy breaking with all the stigmas! I was born in Tunisia, a small country in North Africa. I did pretty much everything earlier than the average: walking, talking, singing, dancing. Promoted throughout my entire education, I was also the leader of every end-of-year party. At some point, after working several years for multinational companies as an engineer, team leader, project coordinator, and product owner while always being a top performer, I figured out I was feeling miserable despite the 'perfect external image'. That marked the starting point of an existential crisis followed by an episode that triggered my re-birth and the beginning of the most rewarding adventure of my whole existence: re-writing my subconscious program and reconnecting with my true self. I was saved at the last moment through an out-of-body experience making me see all the lies, realize this gigantic Universe was not revolving around me. Most importantly, I was able to visualize I was here to leave a legacy like all of you, no matter how big or small! The butterfly took time to emerge though. Today, I identify myself as a Universal Citizen. Like-minded and light-hearted people are what I call home. I am deeply passionate about everything life has to offer, and was granted the edutainer qualifier: a combination between education and entertainment! I educate on the importance of healing unsuspected traumas, seeing our limiting beliefs and biases with honest lenses, finding one's purpose and a principled mission that goes beyond the self, and unleashing the hidden potential so that to leave our legacy for the generations unborn. I have been using a panoply of means that could vary from explicit ones such as mentorship, speaking, and writing, a skill that emerged naturally during my self-actualization process to implicit mediums like storytelling, how I daily show up in the world and model servant leadership! Writing is my very favorite and most preferred tool deployed for my mission. The topics I explore are in the nexus of stoic philosophy, psychology, neuroplasticity, epigenetics, and pretty much any topic involving human behavior. Common denominator? The quality of the subconscious program. You may have a look at some of my works published on my website; Set Yourself Free.

  1. Wow! What an amazing collaboration
    It is phenomenal and mind blowing how the Universe works
    I was just responding to another post with you and here is the proof! ( you’ll see in that comment dear sister)

    Your heart is so dear to me I feel I can just touch you by closing my eyes and letting gratitude wash my over spirit. I’m spell-bounded by the splendour of it all

    My soul sister Myriam…in all we know, there is more to learn…but the best part is finding the connections that hold your hearts hands🙏

    Inspiration gathers together and creates a fire where open minded discovery is blessed with more than you ever imagine possible…
    Thank you for being so completely open …as the soul is free to roam becomes more whole❤️

    My response to this when you first wrote it in Facebook was a little lengthy…you prompted me with more questions and inspire me to write my thoughts further…
    Here I share them…

    Myriam Ben Salem I love the question if the search ever ends… it is my belief that the soul that isn’t searching has found contentment

    It is in the state of connection that brings you solace, pure peace and definition of complete that doesn’t equate to what you thought it was before.

    Nothing is perfect
    Nothing is 100% reliable or valid
    Nothing is open, when you are closed
    Finding faith is that connection.. however you want to reach beyond the human realm it’s that surrender that you are in that returns to you your higher self
    I see the soul as that which is part of the greatest light…it is part of eternity and recycles in forgiveness with each visit. The body is a temple for where it resides and we move through time learning how to make ourselves welcome in our own presence

    Conformity is just a playlist created by your environment
    Finding your source through experience is the greatest dance of existence
    You can alter your own destiny by tuning in, and fate, be that as it may will happen regardless. Perspective is that reality in the dimension of self realization…there is no past or future…there is just experience and you change who you are not where you are by accepting your whole soul in the bigger picture…
    Being human housed on the planet we are meant to learn how to dance without judgement
    We connect with other souls, some are ready, some may not be. We find more about ourselves with every interaction. All that happens was meant to happen. There are signs along the way for us to see and the more you learn to tune in, the closer you become the whole soul who you are and help others with their search too.

    I’m just an observer of what I wasn’t taught, but born with inside of me. All souls are seekers seeking for one thing…to me that is love
    When we love ourselves, we are better connected to our soul and this in turn is better for other souls to know and learn too.

    When it comes to time…another man made concept…we are limited to one dimensional minds at first and the universe has no clock…just a process…when you are ready, it will show you

    I like to think that the less conscious I am of how others see me dance I’m more in tune with how I understand my own sense of wholeness
    So dance with your energy…
    We are all connected in the greater scheme of things. Soulmates and soul friends are meant to find each other and that celebration is the synergy that feeds the universe of love
    Forever doesn’t know how to tell time and if you don’t love yourself, it’s hard to dance alone…there are people that come and go, and some will touch your soul…
    To care about being whole is to me embracing all there is to know 🙏🙏❤️

    Love your interlude and inspired comment here dear sister of my soul
    There is no greater greeting to me than Namaste, for my soul that I am in love with greats the one in you …your highest being
    Thank you for the light you shine and the love you add. I am in no doubt that forever is just a sequence for us to travel through and it’s easier without searching for something else that is already inside of you. We are a miracle and that thought is entertaining enough to start with … pain is a gift for you to find your life.

    Ok, we could talk for hours on this I am sure of …
    my beautiful
    Myriam Ben Salem , I love you
    We were meant to find eachother❤️
    Thank you and the Universe too🙏
