Running on “Soul” Power means tapping into your true purpose, living your life awake, vigorous and vital. As inspirational and invigorating as it may sound, it is not always easy. The hurley burley of daily life can easily distract us from our true essence, from what matters most. I love attending my son’s tennis lessons, they are a priority and yet I often find myself running late as I endeavor to get one more thing done before I leave the office.
It takes effort to repeatedly bring ourselves back to true north, to learn to turn deaf ears to the urgent siren calls of drama. We must cultivate deep self-knowledge, practice introspection, study the lives of the greats who have gone before, learn from them. Staying in touch with the things and people who bring meaning to our existence requires ongoing resolution; I find journaling very centering, an excellent way to stay aligned with true principles. Beyond that, continually seeking out sources of soul power, be it reading or audible in the car, is another powerful way to stay on track, on mission.

As always, I share what I most want and need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
