What is “source” in spiritual terms?

I often refer to “source” when talking to people, as do many other teachers in the field of personal development. I also aim to connect to the source and to surrender to the source.

As a result, I often get questions about what these phrases mean and how to connect to “source”. So here is the first in a series of articles on the subject.

Remember, this is just my opinion. Everyone is free to have their own and I hope mine helps you to inform you if you have any questions on this topic.

What is the source?

Let us first look at what “source” is.

There are a number of dictionary definitions of the word “source”, including:

a place, person or thing from which something originates or can be obtained.

one that initiates

one that provides information

the place something comes from or starts at, or the cause of something.

To me, this makes sense. I use the term “source” instead of a confessional phrase like “god”, but I can also replace it with “the divine” or “universe”.

I am not adapted to a religious belief system but I have a belief in something greater, a divinity of some kind. I choose to call it ‘source’.

And the word makes sense because of its meaning in our language. I believe that is where life comes from, or can be obtained, I believe that it is the initiator of everything, one who provides information through divine guidance, intuition and inspiration. And that is the place where we come from, where it all begins and the cause of everything.

Where is the source?

But I believe that the source is not external to us, that we can find “source” within ourselves when we seek wisdom, guidance, growth and more. I believe that because we are part of “it”, “it” is a part of us.

I always remember discussing “source” with a close family member many years ago, except that she called it “God” at the time. The imagery she used really informed my belief system and is something I have regularly challenged but eventually returned to each time. It’s like a great mass of light or energy, and some break away from this great mass, and become “you” and you go on your journey through life, and then one day, you return to this great mass of light. or energy. Many years later I read similar things in the books Conversation with God, by Neale Donald Walsch, and it made perfect sense. It still does.

The important thing to remember is that while you are separated from the source, you always have a connection to it. It is as if a spark from that mass of light or energy is within you and connects you to the “source” forever.

Our connection to the source

I believe it is the part, the spiritual essence, that you use when you work with your intuition, when you seek inner wisdom or divine guidance and when you have an inspired thought. I believe that whatever spiritual development work you do develops this connection to the ‘source’. It allows you to remember your mission, your vision and your reason for being. I also believe that part of your reason for being is not only to experience being a real living human being, but also to remember that you are the source.
