"The Shadow and the Soul" is a collection of poetry and lyrics by Terry Fatland from 1987-2010.
The Shadow represents the negative emotions, such as despair, anger, worry, doubt, and so on, while the Soul represents the positive emotions, such as optimism, joy, passion, appreciation, etc.
The Shadow is also the aspect that we try to hide from society. However, it surfaces when we judge ourselves and others. Many individuals suppress this Shadow Self through escapism.
As spiritual beings, we have the ability to face the Shadow Self. We can approach our problems from a positive frame of mind which re-connects us back to our loving Soul.
The Soul is our connection to God, and with God, all things are possible.
Now, are you ready for this journey?
Buckle your seat belt.
You're about to take a ride through the Shadow and the Soul.
Terry Fatland and his wife, Marilyn, along with our two cats, Chai and Munchkin, live in Riverside, California. Terry enjoys connecting with nature, as this provides inspiration for his writings. He also draws inspiration from spirituality and metaphysics in the form of books, movies, documentaries, workshops, lectures, and just life itself. As Terry was (and is) inspired by many, he hopes to do the same for others.
