“Profound, unselfconscious soul-experiences of childhood, for the most part, fade away with the onset of adolescence and adulthood. We become busy with school, relationships, figuring out who we are, what our role in life might be. Soul connection fades for many of us during the necessary process of developing a healthy ego, making our way in the world. But the demand of our soul for recognition is never totally absent. It may reoccur, unacknowledged, in dreams or fantasies, or in unexpected emotions, as when a panoramic view lures us into a state of contemplation, or a piece of music brings tears to our eyes.
The call of the soul, first encountered in childhood, is re-encountered again and again throughout life. Often we repress or ignore it, passing on to what seem more pressing demands. Our ego-self is the most conservative element of the psyche – resisting, fearing change, it contrives to ignore the call of the soul. But there comes a time when the soul’s insistence cannot be ignored; it is a voice seducing us into a fuller life.”
Clare Cooper Marcus, in “House as a Mirror of Self”
