Parallel Universe

I live in a parallel universe. One is the physical world in which I am the person I know with the personality, habits and role that I play. The other existence is in the universe within – my own inner world.

At each moment these two universes and two existences of myself are connected by the decisions I make. Every decision and therefore every action that follows affects both my inner self as well as my outer personality.

Silence and stillness are the natural nature of I the soul, I crave for them and search for them, yet they seem so out of reach. Why is this?

With every decision I make I give priority to sustaining the needs of the role and the personality that I am. The needs of the soul get overlooked. Who is this personality I have come to be subservient to? Who is it that consistently takes priority over the deepest and most sacred part of me, the soul?

It is the ego – the one that needs to be recognised, understood and respected. The one that has to be always right and win no matter what the cost. In trying to ensure the ego is sustained I renounce my peace, my happiness and more.

With courage let me decide to give priority to sustaining of the soul, the spirit that I am.

My Original Self

sanskars

When thoughts are expressed they lead to words and action. This expression of thoughts creates an experience for the self and leaves a memory of that experience within the subconscious.

When I repeat the same words and actions again and again, they become a habit. And when habits are repeated, over time, they become my personality – it reflects the way I am.

This personality I am now, has been created, over time, through expression and experience. Layers of experiences have superseded each other with dominating personality traits overpowering more subtle and gentle ones.

I take a deep breath and reflect on this ‘created’ personality of mine and the thought arises from deep within the soul – what was my original personality? Will I ever return to that original pure personality that I was?

And my conscience responds in a whisper – this is the destiny of the soul.

 

Om Shanti

I am a spiritual being

I

I am a spiritual being – a spirit, a soul, an energy that is not visible to the human eye.

The thoughts and feelings that are generated through my mind form a layer of subtle energy around the soul. This is then expressed in a gross form of energy we recognise as words and action. When words and actions are expressed through the body they enable me to build relationships with the world, people and situations in the world.

I move from a core truth of my subtle existence into a gross form and personality and a physical existence. And over time I learn to live in the reality of this outer most world that I myself manifested – believing it to be real and true.

However this manifestation is not ‘I’ at all because I am the spirit, the unseen soul at the very core.I take a moment, become still and silent. In my mind and consciousness, I separate myself from the manifestation – from the layers of creation and creativity…….

I take a moment, become still and silent. In my mind and consciousness, I separate myself from the manifestation – from the layers of creation and creativity…….In this moment I experience my own eternity and the reality of spirit. The spiritual ‘I’ without a name, gender or form.

In this moment I experience my own eternity and the reality of spirit. The spiritual ‘I’ without a name, gender or form. I am

I am spirit.

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 my own creation

Defects

Irrespective of whether I am aware or not, every thought I think, word I speak, action I take, and even the feelings, emotions and intention behind these are continually being recorded in the soul in the form of memories and experiences. What is being recorded will then shape my personality over time.

Let me take a moment to look at my personality today. Do I really believe this is who I am or is there a personality deep within based on truth and purity waiting to be discovered?

Regular observation and reflection of my inner world will help me understand what has shaped my personality.

With conscious awareness I can start to take care of my thinking, speaking and doing. I take charge of how my physical senses behave, I begin to learn about my intentions and motives. As I check and change I become a conscious creator.

Over time my new experiences will begin to overshadow the old ones so much so that the old personality pales into insignificance allowing my true self to shine through.

Start the journey today!

Imprisoned by Ego

imprisoned_ego

For so long now the soul has been imprisoned within the personality of ego.

Do I recognise that personality?

It is that personality that stands up and defends me even when I am wrong. It is there to always make me look good in front of others – it will never let the side down!
When mistakes are noticed, it will make excuses for me and make sure there is someone else to blame. It makes sure I win even at the cost of so many others losing.

Do I recognise this so-called faithful friend within? Could I ever have considered that ego has imprisoned me and made me its slave?

This is the time to recognise how false the personality that ego promotes is, how far from the real me within.

If I am ever to reach my truth and thus my inner peace, I need to be able to let go of all that is false. I need to be able to let go of the support I take from ego and stand up and face myself, who I am, as I am.

Do I have the courage to let go of the support of Ego?

 

Om Shanti
