Michael Meade tells the story of The Old Thief, a teaching tale from Japan about truth, power and looking into the core of our soul. The story suggests that turning within, especially into those places we don’t want to go, becomes the solution to escaping from the prison that we carry in our lives individually and collectively. Because the greatest resources of life are found in the depths of the human soul, no matter what threats and disasters occur at the surface of life, the underlying soul remains an endless wellspring and vital source of change and renewal. When we see with the eyes of the soul, every event, inner or outer, can be seen to have meaning.
