If you are a sincere seeker of truth, you realize that something within you is constantly pushing you from the nest. You know the answers you seek do exist somewhere in the world. This inner force that pushes you to find the answers is an urge you have no control over.
It is the call of Soul.
Prayer. Meditation. Contemplation. What's at the heart of these spiritual practices? Each is a response to the call of Soul. Each represents an individual's desire to contact the source of all truth. Different paths to reach the same goal.
You are Soul, a divine spark of God on a journey homeward. Soul wants to experience more of the Voice of God, which can be heard as Sound and seen as Light. This Voice often remains an unconscious inner experience of which the outer, or human, side of the individual is not aware.
Outwardly, all you know is this gnawing feeling that there is more to life than you have yet discovered. So you begin your search through different philosophies, looking for the missing link.
You have heard the call of Soul and set off in pursuit of God.
(from The Call of Soul, by Harold Klemp, p. 1)
