I saw Bohemian Rhapsody. It was the perfect portrayal of what it looks like when spirit infuses soul’s doing, and what happens when we lose sight of that work. The way Spirit infused an entire 1.5 billion Live Aid 1985 audience through the body and soul of Freddie Mercury, who led “the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music,” just goes to show the power of soul when fully expressed. Apparently $127million was raised by Live Aid (https://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/live-aid-concert).
Sadly, Freddie was swallowed up by “darker influences,” when he betrayed soul – when he was diverted from soul’s journey through betrayal by another, and nature (disease, natural disasters, etc.). The movie also shows how our Gift or soul image is often better sensed, and emerges for us, after we have transformed tragic/traumatic circumstances.
We don’t have to become a superstar to express soul, but we do need to uncover our soul image. This is the work: “In what way has life constructed me that I may contribute most effectively to the transformation of the world?” (https://www.purposeguides.org/) How do I show up more fully? What is mine to do, and how is it supportive of Life on Earth, and contributing to a “soulcentric life-sustaining society” (Joanna Macy)?
