What helped me, with regards the full emergence of soul, was letting go of the idea of 'arrival' of the soul and having to get there. There came a point when I let go of the whole idea of 'mastery'. Instead, I realised it was about being the constant student. There was no 'perfect' alignment of the soul. I accepted the constant exploration, the constant working-with, the constant fine attunement. It became okay to make mistakes. In fact mistakes became the path itself - a constant tweaking of the antenna - a constant alignment dialogue. It means I can accept the imperfections and I feel the beauty of the universe clicking in with me - and "I" with it.
