A word in the Zohar used for those souls who are living their story is lechisah, meaning “whisper.” To live your story is to be able to hear the intimate whisper of divinity erotically caressing your life. We are all recipients of cosmic love notes. Paul Tillich reminds us that we can only hear through the love that listens. Buber captured the spirit of biblical myth when he wrote, “To live means being addressed.”
To live one’s story is erotic in the resonance of its melody and the fullness of its canvas. The world, when we are in our story, is no longer empty. The soul is not here just pay back karmic debts. It has a contribution to make from the depth of its infinite specialness. Through making that contribution a human being feels ful-filled. That is the eros of living one’s story.
The universe is full of whispers, and they are talking directly to you. And here is the paradox–the more you act as if you are being addressed, the more you will be. The world is filled with soul print hints. It may be the lyrics of a song, a sign on a building, an old friend you meet after years of not seeing each other, or a book that grabs your attention and demands to be read.
Each person has their unique talent, pleasure, obligation, form of silliness, and pathology. These are all personal soul print hints that direct you toward living your story.
