Calling The Old Souls

Written by Gede Prama

The characteristic of this era is shown by an economic growth that is quickly increasing. Nothing can slow down the economic growth. As a result, the ecological impact will be very severe. Not only is the ecology outside severe, the inner ecology in humans is also severe. The election of Donald Trump as president of the United States of America is a sign that is worth reading. Especially because leaders are reflections of millions of people who choose them. If the chosen one gets angry very easily, chances are the majority of voters in the particular country are also full of anger.

Data and trends like this are not material to disparage the government, nor are they materials for exaggerating the problem. Instead, see it as hot weather that longs for a cool rainy season. Similar to darkness that invites the coming of Light. Some friends whose spiritual eyes are open to a deeper understanding, in an age when external and internal ecology are so severe, there the earth calls for the arrival of an old spirit. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and other natural disasters are some signs of this. What exactly is called the old spirit is actually simple, humans who are born to this world with a noble purpose not to get anything but to give wholeheartedly. He/she does not dissolve in the darkness of the times but on the contrary is born to illuminate the darkness of this age.

As experienced, the old spirit is usually very difficult to connect with the crowds even from the younger age. Like a small eagle that is put with a collection of small birds, no matter how beautiful the singing of the small birds, there is always a feeling of something missing and uncomfortable there. That is why old spirits tend to be loners when they were young. When studying at school, old spirits experience a number of difficulties learning new and modern things. But it feels easy to learn old things like history, old holy books, and other old relics. Only by hearing and reading it just a little, these old things will quickly enter into memory, and be easily understood.

When he/she was young (kindergarten, elementary school), the old spirit saw his peers as small children who needed pity. Even though he himself was still at a very young age. At the same time, during teenagers time (high school, college students), old spirits will feel comfortable associating with people who are much older. At the same time feel self-respect if held by friends of the same age. At the age of adolescence, there is strong energy inside to always study, learn and learn again. There is a deep thirst for knowledge. Like a fish that longs for a vast ocean. And this type of spirit knowledge always searches for an inner journey, the longer it gets, the deeper it goes. Until one day he can find the king of all knowledge, that is the true knowledge about oneself.

In this day and age, most old spirits are born as an empath (Sensitive souls, higher inner sense, easily hurt by any negative attitude and always have the inner longing to share Light). But in the future, he/she will be able to cultivate this sensitive inner soul into the seeds of Light. In summary, sensitivity is not a source of problems, but a source of blessing. Sensitivity is what makes him careful not to hurt others. Sensitivity guides them to be more concerned and grow in harmony. Sensitivity also makes it easy to be connected with the higher realm. Together with this connectedness, this kind of old soul will easily bring the energy of healing and peace to their surrounding environment. That is why their presence becomes very soothing and even healing.

For some sensitive souls who have higher inner senses, moreover those whom have been spiritual students in their previous lives. When their eyes glazed upon us from afar, we can suddenly feel deep tears. Just like a small child who had long been looking for his Mother’s presence. Suddenly the mother’s energy was present and soothing near them. Another feature of an old spirits, they have inner life that is very deep. The conversation inside was cool filled with friendship. Seeing all as the same dance of perfection. That is also why they are not hostile to anyone. What is called wrong and right resembles the left and right hands of the same body.

Inner life as deep as this makes the old spirit have very few close friends. But the quality of his friendship is very deep. There is no more interest in short surface things such as money. And his life is colored by beautiful things like longing to light up the darkness of nature using the inner Light. This type of human intentionally invites other people to approach, not to use their intelligence, but to use their inner kindness. To be more precisely, a type of kindness in action. Initially he would be suspected and hostile. But over time the law will work perfectly. The flower garden is visited by bees. The cool garden is visited by birds that sing beautifully. Goodness will invite the coming of other goodness.

Nature and the night world are not too frightening to old spirits. Even when they were still very young, nature and the night world were not scary. It happened because of the aura of compassion the old spirits were very friendly with the surrounding environment. Let alone humans, even wild animals feel sorry for hurting old spirits. Because the seeds of the Light inside are so healthy and strong, the old spirits will easily see the appearance of the Light. And the appearance of this Light does not increase pride. Instead, it is used as an invitation to spread far more Light. At least by not extending the long list of violence that has been happening.

Guided by the seeds of Light inside, old spirits will find it easy to find intelligence that is needed in the age in which he was born. The holy book does of course have many benefits, but it is a medicine that comes from a very distant past. Meanwhile the natural biorhythms of the past differ greatly from the natural biorhythms of this age. That is also why, old spirits easily find skillful means that can make him save many suffering beings in this world. In this age, among all the smart tools available, the smartest is compassion.

Concretely, look at all creatures as suffering souls who needed help. Even if someone is hurting them, they will view it in a positive manner on the true reason that makes those people hurting others is not evil, but their deep suffering. Armed with a loving spirit like this, the old spirit will be easily awaken. At the same time they are more easy to share the Light. Those who like to write, write to ease the burden of suffering in this world. For those who likes to paint, please paint to relieve the burden of suffering in this world. However, no matter how much action is taken in this world, it is still seen as a flash of light in the darkness of the night. Compared to the age of the universe, human age is only a flash of light in the middle of a very long night. As a result, arrogance does not arise, humbleness becomes friends along the way. In concise but deep language: “Spiritual attainment can be as high as the sky, but always serves all beings as humble as the heart of the earth”. Welcome home beautiful souls.
