Pathways of the Soul

Majid Ali, M.D.

One’s soul is the core of one’s being that knows not fear, nor remorse.

The soul exists beyond guilt and revenge.

The soul is love that knows not the color, creed, or race.

Pathways of the soul are conversations with one’s own core.

The body suffers, the soul does not.

The body withers, the soul does not.

The body ages, the soul does not.

Pathways of the Soul are the ways to reach God, goodness, or the glue that holds us together. This is the gift of understanding from our deep ancestors, the women of the Rift valley. Call it the Sufi way, if you prefer.

Below, I offer a part of a poem from my poetry book entitled “Drone Democracy” relevant to Pathways of the Soul.


A day for,

For trancing in every shrine,

Far, far,

From the mind of the malign,

Softly, sublimating,

Into the heart of the Divine.

A day for love,

A love,

That only soul can refine.

On the way to be a nobody.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Circa 1594

It proposes that love is a dream, or perhaps a vision; that it is absurd, irrational, a delusion, or, perhaps, on the other hand, a transfiguration; that is doomed to be momentary, (“So quick bright things come to confusion” [1.1.151]0, and it constitutes at the same time the proper foundation for lifelong marriage.

A Midwinter Day’s View – Circa 2011

                                                          Love is to celebrate,

                                                          A crystal without creed,

                                                          A dew drop without color,

                                                         A raven without race,

                                                         A river without religion.
