This episode begins with the idea that our original agreement with life involves the inner dream of our soul and the unique pattern that brought us into being in the first place. At birth the soul enters a series of secondary agreements that involve accepting the world as we find it and learning to negotiate between our soul and the “facts of life,” between our deepest desires and the reality of one’s circumstances.

 

Our true guide is the deepest image in our soul, the divine spark and core imagination that is also the renewing force of our being. Each soul lives on the verge of remembering the forgotten agreement and original dream that it carries within. In that sense, the real struggle in life has always been to become that which we already are at our heart’s core.

 

At each critical turning point in life the first agreement of our soul tries to become more conscious to us. Either we are growing more soul and becoming a greater vessel for the flow of life or we are shrinking from life and secretly feeding blind instincts and the hungry ghosts.

 

Although we are never far from our original agreement and divine connection, it often seems the farthest thing from us. Recalling the soul’s original agreement provides us a return to the underlying unity of life and a sense of genuine purpose in the world. The most genuinely human moments are moments in which the soul awakens to its original dream of life.
