Believing into Being

i_believe

When I look at myself and keep focusing on the weaknesses that exist within my own personality then it will lead me into depression.

Weaknesses do not belong to me but I have acquired them through life experiences and so it appears as if they belong to me – but they don’t!

Do I believe that?

What I need to do is see the truth within myself, about myself, and believe that.

Let me understand that I am a soul. I need to have conviction in what it means to be a soul. Believe in the soul’s true nature and innate qualities.

Without belief there is no power of authority in that truth.

Like a picture of the sun – looking at it again and again will not give me light or heat. I need to see the real sun and then I will experience it.

Experience makes us worthy and powerful.

Experience gives us spiritual authority.

 

Om Shanti

My Companions

2015-04-20_0807_003

It is often said that we are coloured by the company we keep.

Am I aware how the people around me, my friends, colleagues etc., influence the values I hold, my understanding and interpretation of situations, and how that governs the behaviour I demonstrate.

How is the company I keep in my inner world influencing me? Am I able to see how the thoughts and feelings I entertain shape my vision and attitudes, and thus carve my personality.

Do I keep the company of the truth, of God, and allow that to work on me gently and subtly to make me great?

Let me check the quality of the company I am keeping – is it having a positive influence on my life? If not perhaps it is time to check and change?

 

Om Shanti

The Prison of my Personality

personality

Personality is the mask that I wear, the character I profess to be. Someone who is admired in society for fame, fortune, cleverness or even an entertaining nature.

The personality is so strong that it continues to express itself in return for ‘respect’, popularity and even love.

Do I sometimes feel like a prisoner of my own personality? It is my personality yet it is not me!

When I take off my mask, who am I then? Am I still not a person that society will like and accept? The mask of personality will strongly disagree and in this way it holds onto the power and keeps me imprisoned.

I need courage to step out from behind that mask. It may not be easy but I will free myself from a self-imposed prison sentence that I do not deserve. And what is more, in doing so I will reclaim my self respect and honour of just being me.

It’s time to be free.

 

Om Shanti

Become Blind

become_blind

If I see someone’s weakness it is as if the soul becomes infected.

My vision will focus on that weakness as the basis of their personality. Then everything else that follows – my thoughts, words, actions and feelings – will be coloured by that.

They are the ones with a weakness and yet it is me who creates and holds the waste thoughts and negative feelings within the self. I then nurture these types of thoughts of feelings by re-asserting the existence of the weakness. I ‘feed off it’ and thus enable it to grow and set up home within the self.

Whether they are right or wrong, doing something good or bad, why should that control the thoughts and feelings that I experience?

I need to make myself blind to the weaknesses of others, not just to be able to maintain healthy relationships, but
to protect my own inner self from being ‘infected’ and infectious.

Don’t become ‘infected’, become blind to the weaknesses of others.

 

Om Shanti
