Who am I again?

It is the eternal question of identity. Who is it that I really am?

If I can see something or experience it then that which I see, experience or use cannot be ‘me’ as I am the one that is seeing’, ‘experiencing’ or ‘using’.

As I look deeper at my subtle self, my thoughts, my feelings and even my intellect, I begin to realise that maybe I am not even these subtle aspects of what I call ‘I’.

Yes, I have a mind, but I can step back and look at what is going on in my mind. So the mind cannot be ‘I’ as ‘I’ am the one that is looking at the mind.
I have feelings and I can experience these feelings – so I am the one experiencing and not the feelings themselves.
I use my intellect to discern, judge and decide – I use this factuality actively to perform an operation. So the intellect cannot be ‘me’.
So who is it that I am? it needs stillness, silence and patience with the self to understand. It requires the exclusion of everything else to experience this ultimate truth.

I am awareness…..I am pure consciousness.

 

Om Shanti

Still and Silent

the_one

I take a moment and become still.

I allow each part of my body to slowly relax and as I do that the body responds and becomes very still.

I gently listen to my breath as I inhale and exhale – my breathing becomes slow and deep…

Moving my focus inward, I watch the pattern of my thoughts which have slowed down.

I become aware of there being a distinct stillness within.

Still…..

From within this stillness I am drawn to a very gentle silence that is held within the inner ear.
I listen to this silence and as I do so I become absorbed in this eternal sound of silence.

I stand still in time and within this eternal sound of silence I just ‘am’ …..

 

Om Shanti

Is that Knowledge or Wisdom?

Kow_wisdom

We live in an information society. Whatever information is needed can be obtained with the press of a button.

With all this information we are able to gain so much knowledge on almost any subject. Information or knowledge is seen as a sign of power. One who knows is a master and can thus lead and control – direct and even mis-direct.

But when does knowledge become wisdom?

When we contemplate knowledge, then apply and integrate it in our lives: our awareness, attitude and actions. When it is used in relation to the wider truths of life, it is then that it becomes wisdom. Knowledge on its own may be useful and give temporary gain, but it is only wisdom that transforms knowledge into power – spiritual power

Wisdom is the power of experience that gives internal stability. It is the deepest ‘knowing’, based on experience, which then allows one to be internally free.

Am I wise?

 

Om Shanti
