My Self Created Personality

2015-04-20_0810_003

The person I am today is not the same as the one I was last year or even yesterday. As I go through life I am continuously learning and my personality and character develops over time.

I express myself every day, from moment to moment, often charged with anger, upset or even sadness and then at other times with happiness and enthusiasm . These emotional reactions are a result of a personality that has developed over time. But it is not my true or original personality.

When I allow myself to consciously step away from the safety of the character I have come to believe I am, I step away from the illusion – I let go of all the acquired cleverness, skills, knowledge, experiences and allow my true personality to emerge.

Who am I? I am who I was always and always will be – constant, consistent and forever. I am the spiritual being, the soul, full of all goodness and power. Complete and perfect without the need to prove my self-worth.

Do I have the courage to stop and step away from my self-created personality and respond from my non polluted and original self?

 

Om Shanti

The Control Factor

depth_within

Situations happen – they are a part and parcel of life and with them come stress, pain, tension and worry. However these are not a part and parcel of life – they are actually a choice we make.

Situations, people, nature, circumstances etc.. are beyond our control – they have their own momentum and path. When we are not willing to let go of that which we cannot control then we choose to move into a space of stress, worry and tension.

Acceptance and the willingness to let go and move on allows us to protect ourselves from these negative by-products of wanting to control.

Letting go of control is not just a physical thing – it is about mentally and emotionally letting go of the need to control a situation.

In the face of challenges, If we are able to stop and step into our inner space and see another perspective then it will allow us to free ourselves and move on. The longer we hold onto something, in the hope to control or change the outcome, the harder it will be to let go because the deeper will be the mental and emotional bonds to it.

When we realise the futility of control we will be able to turn to ourselves and instigate a more positive change from within.

Om Shanti

Spiritual Power

Spiritual_power

‘Power’ can be seen as physical strength, as mental or emotional control over others or as a unique capacity to think differently, be different.

Spiritual power, on the other hand, is subtle and so not easily visible to the eyes. It is an inner strength that enables me to protect my own inner personality. It is something that is felt and experienced rather than expressed and seen.

The ability to develop one’s own spiritual power begins in the battlefield of life.
It has become a habit to use the negative qualities of my own weakness and vices to fight the challenges in life – they have enabled me to win the outer, physical battles.

But spiritual power, which is internal, can be developed with the ability of the self to choose and use a virtue rather than a weakness or a vice in the face of challenge.

Using a virtue, over time makes it into a power. If I decide not to use my virtues then, over time, I will lose my spiritual power, my spiritual authority

Always choose to take the high path of virtue. Even if it means an apparent loss, it will make me a greater human being and it will free me from being a slave to circumstances.

 

Om Shanti

The Power of Attraction

attraction_power

What is it in attraction that causes that emotional pull within?

Why is it that we are attracted to do certain things, go to certain places and be with certain people.

This is the power of attraction. Whatever we are attracted to, whether a person, place or thing, there is a comfort or familiarity that we value and think we need, and so, even against our conscious wish, we are pulled to it again and again.

The more I surrender to attraction, the more I am allowing my power to drain away. This habit leads to dependence, which creates a subtle bond and so makes me a slave.

If I am able to see what it is I’m attracted to, appreciate it and walk away, then that will gradually free me from the need, and restore my spiritual power, putting me back in charge.

Don’t become a slave to attraction.

 

Om Shanti

Watch Out, Angers about!

anger

The first sign of anger is an emotional discomfort within. We don’t even realise it but it is quickly followed by irritation. If this irritation is not identified and controlled it will move into dislike, and anger very quickly.

We have very little control over the things that happen around us and therefore we blame those things for our anger. But irritation is an internal emotion that we create and nurture, through our own thoughts and feelings. It is something that we control and thus we are responsible for.

We have the choice at every moment to react or respond, to get irritated and angry or not.

The moment I make the choice I hold the power to take control.

Make the right choice and take control of anger.

Om Shanti
