THE ANSWER TO SUN TZU

"The Soul of a Woman"

By Paulette Renee Broqueville

"A man becomes satisfied with one woman when he falls in love with her soul." This the reply to the young Sun Tzu's question, "How does a man become satisfied with one woman?" "When she too can see his soul and falls in love with the soul - this then is the marriage of the souls," she went on to say. "When a man can see the soul and does recognize the soul of a woman as one whom he loves - he is forever in love and then he can see no other woman but her. A man who sees only the body of a woman can have many women. He is one who can be bought or sold in exchange for the pleasures of the body. He is a man who cannot be trusted. He is a man who cannot see - he is blind - blind to the soul who resides within the body, The soul of man and the soul of woman are wed - not the bodies. The soul is the heart and the heart is the spirit of the Divine above. A marriage which is built upon the love of one soul for another, is a marriage made in heaven. This marriage is to be held sacred in the hearts of those who are so blessed. The marriage of souls must be tended by each one, as one would tend a garden of delicate flowers - carefully and often. If this is not done, the separation of the souls comes. The soul is delicate and sensitive and is easily turned away. The heart and the soul are easily broken. Love is the only requirement to heal it.   Love is felt in the glance as eyes meet. Love is heard in the tone of the voice. Love is understood by tender words of love, comfort and encouragement. Love is felt by touching her with the air beneath your fingers. A well-tended garden will always be full of flowers and so must he tend his beloved. The life of the soul of man who wants to keep the love of the soul of a woman must live life with care and concern for her delicate being."

 

 

THE ANSWER TO SUN TZU

"The Road to Happiness"

by Paulette Renee Broqueville

"Is there satisfaction in the heart? Is there contentment with the small and the everyday and that which is not new or exciting, but sits in the shade of a man's life?" This the reply to the young Sun Tzu's question, "What is it to have happiness?" "There are two different men," she went on to say, "one is happy with what he has and the other is unhappy with what he does not have. Which one will achieve a happy life? One man looks at today and smiles and the other looks at today and cries. Happiness lives within the walls of the heart. The heart that thinks only of what it has to give is happy. The heart that thinks only of what it wants is unhappy. Happiness is being one with the Will of the Father in Heaven. When unhappiness comes as a cloud over you - move to another place, where the sun shines and happiness fills your heart, for there - in happiness - is where the Father wants you to be - it is His Will. Unhappiness comes to men who impose their own will upon themselves. Memories imprison the heart of a soul who lives in terror, sorrow or anger. He is a man trapped by his past. The heart of this man cannot know happiness until he can think only of his future. The future soon becomes the present and the sorrowful past fades away, like a mist that comes and goes leaving only the warmth of the sun. A new past is born. - a happy past. The living and the reliving of the sorrowful past, can only imprison the heart. Let the heart be free. Think only of the future and begin living in it, for that is your present - and your gift. The present is the path to happiness. The road to the future is the present. To remain on the road from the past is to live in unhappiness all of your days - for you, there is no present and no future. Woe unto him who imprisons the heart of a child in a sorrowful past for he shall be forgotten by men and angels."

 

 

 

THE ANSWER TO SUN TZU

"The Heart and the Mind"

by Paulette Renee Broqueville

"The man who must have control over his life is a man who has not learned to think." This the reply to the young Sun Tzu's question, "My heart talks to me and my mind talks to me. To which one shall I listen?" "Within the walls of the heart lies truth, " she went on to say, "and the mind is the servant of the heart. The man who knows this truth is a leader of men. The heart unfolds its secrets, as a flower from bud to bloom. He who can wait to learn the wisdom of the heart, is the one who will know. He will not be a man who can be enslaved, bought or sold for any price. Silence and patience are the essence of such a man. He is the one who rests in reason and moves in passion. Within such a man the mind is silent, waiting, listening for direction from the heart. The man who acts on the direction of the mind will not have victory - not with man or woman. He is the enemy of his own heart. He who learns that the heart is the stronger of the two will rule the soul of his enemy in war and be victorious; and he who follows his heart in love, will have a happy life. Woe unto him who battles his heart life long; for too many men have learned too late in life that they have lived the wrong life. He who lives by what his mind tells him, will have incomplete information; as though he did not have eyes or ears or hands. This man is not a leader and should not be trusted; for he will boast of his plans to men and women. The man who is trusted is he who trusts his heart for guidance; for he alone has the power to keep the secret. His mind does not know the plan of the heart until the moment of victory, and therefore, will not reveal his secret plans. This man has no control over his life and yet he has ultimate control. His heart controls and he follows. He who can follow his heart is he who can lead many unto victory."

 

 

THE ANSWER TO SUN TZU

"The Nature of Man"

by Paulette Renee Broqueville

Man has two choices: to be separate from the Soul of Man or to be one with the Soul of Man." This the reply to the young Sun Tzu's question, " What is the nature of Man?" "The soul can live alone without the body of Man or it can live as the Soul of Man," she went on to say. "The Soul does not need food, therefore it does not become a glutton. The Soul does not need sexual pleasure; therefore it does not take what is not his. The Soul does not drink; therefore it will never be intoxicated with ravings uncontrolled. The Soul does not sleep; therefore it will always be where it is needed. The Soul is the defender of truth; therefore it will always live in happiness. The Soul has no other desire than to share with others; therefore it will never be found jealous. The nature of the Soul is to give, and from this giving is pleasure derived. To live as Man without the Soul is to be without inspiration. It is to spend life taking but never giving. It is to see, but only one's own face. It is to hear, but only one's own voice. It is to act, but only in selfishness. It is to speak, but words that are empty of meaning. It is to give, but only to take more than what was given. It is to avoid truth and in so doing to live unhappily. Woe, unto him who lives with him who has no soul for unhappiness shall follow him wherever he goes."

 

 

 

The Child and the Desires of Man and Woman

by Paulette-Renee Broqueville

“The soul of man and woman is a child.” This the reply to the young Sun Tzu’s question, “What happens to the boy or the girl who is used for the sexual pleasure of a man or a woman?”
“He or she who abuses the soul of a child or allows others to abuse the soul of a child is guilty of murder of the soul: murder of the soul. Murder of the body is dealt with by man but murder of the soul is dealt with by God. The soul is born into a baby body, entrusted to the care of man and woman. What murderers are found among the caretakers. What life lay ahead for the soul after the first attack? The soul having lost its trust for the caretakers, loses its trust in people and in his or her own soul. What path lay ahead with such a beginning? Two paths are laid out in front of the maimed and weakened soul.
One path is easy, the other is full of boulders, high mountains and deep valleys. The soul who falls down the first path lays down in a drunken stupor or stays in the world of the opium maze.
The second path is taken by the brave, the souls who love even their abusers. What life lays ahead for him or for her is not known but each is willing to struggle to regain what was lost in the abuse: trust.
Because this soul has great love, hatred cannot enter; because this soul has great hope, dispair cannot enter; because this soul has a desire to give in charity to others; depression cannot enter. It is these three qualities in the soul that carry the soul over the boulders, mountains and the deep valleys into which each was thrown at the time of the abuse.
And will the soul regain what was lost? Never! But much strength, wisdom and understanding is gained on the difficult journey in search of trust.
For those who overcome the boulders and seek truth much healing will take the place of the maimed soul that once was whole and innocent. For those who only want to forget the abuse they will wallow in the prison of pleasure: sexual, drunken or the opium maze until the day they lay down the body.
And she or he who continues in search of truth? This one is capable of great feats; having mastered the mind and the emotions she or he will live as the pure soul on earth placing great trust in knowing his or her own soul as good.”
