The Unexplainable Feeling of Longing: A Place Your Soul Called Home

The unexplainable feeling of longing for a place, that one does not even know and never feel like to relate with that place before, it can be a sign of recognizing the identity of a soul. Seeing a picture of a certain place may trigger a soul to feel the great longing, the feeling like they have been there before. The spiritualists believe oneself may experience the feeling similar to déjà vu, while it is also called as recognizing the true home of the soul. It sounds like soul-searching, and maybe it is.

When the unknown feeling suddenly appears, it feels like a myth that needs a body of proof. Some says it is the feeling of loneliness, but some say it is probably a strange feeling that’s called saudade. The spiritualists, and also for those who believe more about God and everything metaphysical tends to prefer the latter. Have you ever felt a weird feeling in your chest, the heavy and strong feeling of longing about something you are not sure about?

According to the Wikipedia.com; Saudade is a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return.

If one has experienced the feeling of misplace about where one currently resides, there is a possibility that the soul wants to feel the nostalgia of being somewhere out there.

The first origin nature of the soul knows what it wants, but the outer mind can’t process the unknown images that are never been there before. It is the absence of the mind that prevents the soul from reaching its peak to release a deep emotional state and melancholy. Thereafter, the feeling can baffle the mind from understanding the situation.

Maybe there are people out there, who come across with a picture of a beautiful place on the internet, and suddenly their tears start falling out of nonsense. It such nonsense to cry for nothing, but maybe it is the soul who cries, longing for a place that once called home.

Take this for example; a woman wants to go travelling, but she isn’t sure where to go, and so, when she tries to look on the internet, she comes across with many of beautiful places. Until then, she found a certain place she never saw before in Italy. Through the images, her eyes lingered, and tears starts falling. Her mind cannot process why she cries for a place she has never seen before, but she feels really relate to that place.

There are probably people that have a strange feeling of wanting something, like an urge to go away from anyone, locking themselves up from the world for a while. Sometimes a person wants to hide away somewhere far away, don’t feel like losing oneself in an alleyway. Many people won’t understand with being in a state of isolation, because it’s such an unusual thing to be happened.

That’s why it is called as the feeling of saudade. It’s not understandable, being melancholy without a reason to be known. But perhaps, one day, the person who has experienced the feeling itself can find the reason why. Since it is a matter of heart, each soul has the answer. Every journey will lead someone to learn about something.

Know the unknown, to reveal the mystery.

Book Quotes – Reincarnation: The Cycle of Necessity by Manly P. Hall

Greetings!

I’ve just finished reading another great book last week by Manly P. Hall, he was a professor/philosopher in the field of spiritual world. I thought I’d be happy to share on this blog the quotes that I’ve highlighted in purpose for spiritual learning about reincarnation and karma. Anyway, his books are not pretty easy to find around the internet, it took me a long time to find some of his books through link by link on Google, I was actually more like stuck and lost, and surprisingly in the end, I could find his book about reincarnation.

Quotes from book “Reincarnation: The Cycle of Necessity” by Manly P. Hall

  • It is obvious that no one can be compelled to accept a belief because that belief is enlightened. ~By Way of Introduction, Pg.12
  • Literally the word reincarnation means to incarnate again, to be re-embodied, or more accurately, to be re-enflashed; to return after death to the physical of terms. ~Pg.15
  • “Immortality” simply means the deathlessness of the spirit. Immortality is agreed upon by the greater part of the human race, but as the term does not imply any necessity for physical rebirth the belief in immortality is not synonymous with the belief in reincarnation. ~Pg.17
  • “Personality” is the term applied to the complex of mind, emotion, sense, and form. Personalities are those objective parts of man’s composite nature which are discernible or uninformed. To most people reincarnation signifies the re-embodiment of their personalities. This is the key to the confusion in Isis Unveiled wherein Mme. Blavatsky insists that personalities are not reborn except under unusual conditions. ~Pg.18
  • “Memory of Past Lives” : in both the Eastern and Western schools the memory of past lives is awakened only after initiation into the Mysteries. This memory is preserved in the permanent self and may be contacted when the lower personality is lifted up by discipline into communion or participation with the self. For the uninitiated there is no advantage in remembering past personalities. ~Pg.19-20
  • There was no escape from the laws of life and death except the ultimate Nirvana. ~Previous Life of Buddha, Pg.35
  • Wisdom does not bestow immortality upon the body rather it elevates the consciousness, giving patience, and understanding. ~Previous Life of Buddha, Pg.35
  • We all believe what we desire to believe, and those who desire to be immortal attempt to believe immortality into a fact. ~Pg.40
  • To one who has lived long, long life means little; to a world that has experienced much, suffered much, mellowed with ages of existence. ~Pg.40
  • The Koran (Al-Quran) is the final authority of Islam. The enthusiastic moslem declares that not one line, not one character; not even a single punctuation mark of the Koran has ever been changed. They advance this book as the only scriptural writing in the world that has not suffered the corruption of revision or translation. ~Reincarnation in Islam, Pg.61
  • The Koran contains one Sura that is interpreted by numerous modern moslem as authority for the belief in metempsychosis, “God generates beings, and here they return to him.” This statement appears to be specific and incapable of other interpretation, but it is only fair to say that reincarnation is a disputed point in Islamic orthodoxy. ~Pg.62

Your Call

The clouds are hanging,

not much in agony

The birds are singing,

not much for mocking

The days won’t vanish into ashes,

because the world is still here,

waiting for you,

for your call.

The Cryptic

The first time we moved in, we found an obsolete paper hung in front of the entrance door, the words said; this house is cursed, do not open!

My dad grimaced as he read that, that could be teenager’s prank. He had considered the whole sleepy town idea since some residents already warned us about the house, but there was no turning back, and he already bought it anyway.

The Victorian house looked uncanny and old. The dusts and cobwebs had been covering every corner of the space. I hated the idea if the house might be haunted by an old story and ghosts. More strangely, no mirrors hung in each bedroom, but the only one I found was in the living room. Some rumors said that the mirror was the heart of this house. Who would seriously believe that?

The Crock

The moon shone above your creep

The sun brighten under your fear

What day will become the fortnight?

They say; it’s hard to know that

That’s… when your heart melted…

Away with your empty crock

Thus,

The sun and the moon,

will show you the way…

 

Life is Unexpected Somehow

In the past two weeks, I guess, recently I feels something change within me. I don’t know how to perceive all those changes into my mind, or my brain. It’s like a slow transformation, starting from the way I dress, the way I style my appearance, the way I talk that ridiculously somehow it sounds like I came from a different era, I talk like a mature person than I used to be. Because of that, I’ve been saying this to myself, “Do you even hear yourself talking?”
