Hi B,

I guess you're referring to my fb quote...

    "one of the great mysteries of the spiritual path, is how the inner must be seamlessly related to the outer - no matter how dense. It's not enlightened simply to withdraw because something is difficult or unpleasant - only ego would do that. The soul, on the other hand, is fearless, and doesn't judge the choice to be made as positive or negative. When approaching a crossroads, one marked "hell" and the other "heaven", to me, the soul chooses only on the basis of how much can be learned? Thus the soul flows from authentic being into authentic - none attached - doing."

I think for an empath, the path is difficult because everything is felt, and one's energy blends easily into others - so the soul can readily fragment into density - hence "the innards of a second hand shop" (funny metaphor!).

In terms of the fragmented direction, I'd say you have to explore these 'diversions' to recover whatever soul fragment is buried there. Ultimately there is no diversion because there is nowhere to get to!

With a chaotic mind, I'd say work to come more from the deep consciousness - from feeling. If you keep coming from this place, then over time, the mind will come into line.

Some great ways of expressing emotion are, yes, music, dance, movies, but also allowing yourself to express in relationships, with friends - someone who is willing to hold the space unconditionally and just hear, without trying to fix.

Those would be my suggestions.
