Do you feel something is missing within you? Do you long for something inside you?

We all long for what makes us whole and complete.  Sometime we lose a piece of our soul at an early age to trauma and/or abuse in order to survive.  Sometime we sell a piece of our soul, contrary to our core belief and ethics, for a quick fix of power, money or comfort.

It is very important to be aware of the consequences of our trade offs.  The only thing that remains for us after death is our soul.  It is our soul that we need to treasure, and we must not compromise the integrity of our soul.

For Sale

 

Look around.
For sale signs are everywhere.

Take a look at the faces of the sellers.

 

Grim, dull eyes, tired and spiritless.

 

You can see and feel a void within them.

 

You ask them how they came by the void within.

 

You will hear many replies.

 

I sold a piece of my soul to feel safe.

 

I sold a piece of my soul to survive.

 

I sold a piece of my soul for a large sum of money.

 

I sold a piece of my soul to be powerful.

 

I sold a piece of my soul to stay in a relationship.

 

I sold a piece of my soul to keep my pride.

 

I sold a piece of my soul to keep peace in my family.

 

I sold a piece of my soul to get approval and love.

 

I sold a piece of my soul to feed my ego.

 

Now gain back your long lost soul.

 

Let go of what really does not matter.
Cherish what truly matters.

Truly makes you think dear one.  The reasons that treasured items are for sale at the price of a piece of our soul...Very touching and so insightful!
