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

I am!

sanskars

Originally and eternally my nature, my personality has always been one of virtues and qualities.

I, the soul, am born into a body and through that I perform actions. I play my various roles through this body as I act and interact with other souls and with matter.

As I do this a natural mechanism comes into play – An action that is repeated many times becomes a habit and when a habit is repeated of a long period of time it becomes a personality trait. Over time I also accumulate many experiences and memories that influence me in the actions I chose to do.
This process, that is at play, has made me who I am – the person I know and see and believe to be me.

This personality of ‘mine’ – the one that I have become – has weaknesses, expresses vices and generates so many waste thoughts and feelings. It causes sorrow to the self and others because of the direct influence this personality has on my behaviour.

However, originally and eternally this is not me, not really. Neither am I the body, nor the roles and thus I am also not the personality I believe myself to be.

Step away from the false belief and chose to be who you really are.

 

Om Shanti

Sunshine

The sun shines constantly and continuously. It is unaware of any clouds that may come in its way. It doesn’t wait to see if someone is taking benefit or not, or whether they are hiding themselves away in their houses. The Sun just continues to shine and bestow. It carries on with its duty and in that is its contentment, value and respect.

If, instead of constantly trying to be something and someone that I think I need to be, like the sun, I just ‘be’ what I am originally, internally and naturally then I will be at peace with myself. I will be able to be happy and content. No question, no pretences, no masks or makeup. No trying to prove that I am good or right etc.

Just plain and simple me: original, eternal and purest soul.

 

Om Shanti

The Diamond Within

You are the diamond sitting within this body. The diamond is tiny yet beautiful and extremely valuable.

The sparkle of the diamond reveals itself through the facets which shape it; it sparkles with all the colours of the rainbow. The diamond within also sparkles with a multitude of virtues and specialities of the soul.

Even if the diamond is dropped in mud, it is still a diamond and just as valuable. The sparkle may be hidden as it has become covered in mud but it is still there.
When I the soul become covered by the vices, it is the same situation. It does not mean the virtues are gone or the value is no longer there. They are just hidden and suppressed by the vices.

It is time to clean the diamond within, wash it with the water of wisdom and see the diamond sparkle once again – restored to its original state.

Let’s start cleaning.

 

Om Shanti
