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

Soul Story

bodyconsciousness

Once upon a time I, the immortal soul began a journey through eternity – a wonderful and colourful adventure through time.

As years passed by, I played my part, interacting with people and surroundings as required. I played many characters along the way – changing the costume of my body many times.
Until, in time, I became lost in the story – becoming fully absorbed in the roles I played. I forget who I was – who I was originally before my journey began. Amazingly I had lost my own identity!

It is then that the adventure began – the search for the ‘real’ me. I searched from the mountain tops to the bottom of the seas but I was nowhere to be found. Until one day I looked wiithin, behind the costume and the masks, and there I was sitting silently just waiting to be found. I had found the silent, eternal and most beautiful energy of me!

This is my story, the story of the soul – and I guess it is your story too.

Have you began your search for you?

 

Om Shanti

Spiritual Identity

I

We are accustomed to identifying with the roles we play, our careers, religions etc. Our identity is often based on what we do rather than what we are.

Spirituality teaches us that we are spiritual beings: eternal and conscious beings. We realise the immortality of the soul in relation to the ever changing, unpredictable world we live in.

As human beings we want to be content and we want to also achieve many things in life. But underlying this drive is also a fear that we may never reach there. As a result we are in a constant race, trying to satisfy our ever growing needs in a constantly changing world.

When we understand our identity as a spiritual being then there is a shift in consciousness. This new sense of self brings with it great satisfaction and a sense of ‘having arrived’. It is a realisation, an awakening, which grounds us, giving us internal security and stability.

Time is asking us to change perspective and experience ourselves as a spiritual being and time does not wait.

Om Shanti

Who am I?

whoami

We play many roles and have personalities and cultures that reflect the variety of things that we do. However what underpins all that we do, is who it is that we are.

WHO am I ?

Pause for a moment……….
Allow nothing to attract the mind from the outside or from the inside.
Be still…………
Be silent………….
Be present in the moment.

Let the consciousness of the body dissolve……….
Allow your awareness to touch the conscient energy within……….
The living energy that you are.

In this stillness, this silence, emerge the awareness of your own existence without the body……….

I am a soul, a tiny point of living energy, seated in the centre of the forehead………..

Hold this truth, this awareness in your consciousness.

Om Shanti
