Who are you really?
Today as I was pondering who I was…. I came up with many things that are not ME but descriptions and labels of what I can do, what I have done, what people have said about me, how I have felt, things I like to do.
Like: Motorbike rider, writer, poet, kind, caring, passionate, loud, make-up artist and so on and so forth. But these are not who I actually am.
So I realized there is any number of words that can be used to describe and label my body, feelings, experience and personality which I attach to ME… But really all these things can and will change over time. I wasn’t born with these words and labels in my understanding, I was taught, language and the meaning of the words used to describe things…..
Oh how I feel so grateful and happy and perplexed, but these are not me or I think creative and logical but these are not me either, the current hair on my head is brown, and I have all my fingers and toes, my face is round but this is not me, these things can and will change. So I AM beyond these then??? Well yes. What is beyond labels? Language and understanding? Do you still exist? or is this all that you are?
The quote above is so profoundly closer to the truth then so many labels. We all change constantly, our mind, our body, our spirit and everything around us is changing even if we aren’t noticing it. It is a sure truth All changes. Nothing stays the same. Write a list of all the things you say I AM.. and then think how true it is. How have these two little words in our mind and voice potentially limited us in actions and attractions.
Don’t ever say you are something you wish not to be, what you say affects your DNA and your beliefs and version of reality. Get clear on what you ACTUALLY want to attract and BE, DO and HAVE.
For me? I am an awareness of the surrounding environment which changes including the body I AM encased in, which effects biochemically with the thoughts and causes within the mind in which I can choose to control or be victim of. If I AM beyond my mind and thoughts then I can select them and change them at will, or others could. If you aren’t choosing your thoughts and mind, then who is? What is? What in your environment affects your mind the most? What you see? Who you are with? What you put in your body? These all affect the balance and clarity to control the thoughts and mind attached to the body.
Is GOD controlling me? Did he when I was growing in my mothers womb? Get clear on what your faith is in, even if you don’t agree with belief or religion. Know what you are and who you are Deep down.
You can use another label for the creative and life giving force that is you beyond the body and mind phenomenon.
