Where Am I Going?


I the soul take birth on this earth into this body.

The earth becomes my stage and the body becomes my costume I wear to act my part in this story of life, within my journey of many, many lives.

The journey is long and there are many challenges along the way…but I the soul am the traveller and I will continue to move on from one scene of the drama to the next…from one life to the next.

I came onto this earth alone and empty handed and it will be the same when I leave.
I cannot predict my tomorrow, I have no control even of my today.
The only guarantee I have, from the moment of birth is that, in time, I will leave this body.

I am immortal, but the body is temporary and perishable…it will die.
This scene in this body, this costume, will finish but my story and my journey continues….

Where have I come from and where am I going?
Without knowing what and where, I the traveller, I the soul, just continues to travel aimlessness through life. From birth to birth from story to story.

I ask myself, where do I want to go in this journey called life?

Where am I going?


Om Shanti

Body Consciousness


Consciousness is simply the belief I hold in my awareness about who I am. This becomes the basis of how I think, talk and act.

When I believe I am a body then I will interact with the world in body consciousness. Expectations and desires will be based on the body: what I wear, how I look, my profession, how much I earn, what I own etc.

As a bodily being one thing is certain – I take birth and I will die.
Between these two parameters I will do what I can to fulfil all my desires.
However subtly, underlying all of this is the fear of death, of time running out. It is fear that becomes the basis of anger, greed, attachment and more.

In soul consciousness things are very different because as a soul I am never born, nor will I ever die. A soul is an eternal form of energy. The aspect of fear and competition immediately disappear.

Soul consciousness allows me to act and interact with people without expectation of return or loss; without fear. It frees me from the illusion that I have to become something more than I already am.

Switch your awareness from body consciousness and become soul conscious.

Om Shanti
