Who are you?
The Great Sage Ramana Maharshi taught his students the art of Self Inquiry, to ask one’s self “Who AM I?”.
He realized that through the process of self inquiry one could discover the Truth of their being. The Universe responds to our inquiry just as it does to our Words, Thoughts Intentions, and Visualizations.
Your body allows you to experience life, but that is not who or what you are. Awareness is your true nature. You are that which witnesses the experience of living.
In the Light of Undifferentiated Consciousness, we are all Pure Light, and we are one with the All That Is. In that state there is no body.. nor is there a sense of self present. There is only Light.. and we ARE that Light.
That was how my experience began while meditating one night in the back of a Jeep in the forest. Eventually I fell asleep in that state and when I awoke the next morning, I was in The Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. As it was told to me..
“You are in the Body of God in Creation”
I still had no sense of self at that point, but I knew there was no separation between myself and the earth, or my surroundings. There was only One, and I was One with Creation.
This is what I know beyond the shadow of a doubt to be true:
The Divine is within each and every one of us, and we are within the Divine.
There is no ‘other’ and there is no separation..
There is only Oneness.
Our True Nature.. who and what we are.. is part of God. We are Divine Beings having a human experience. In the deepest sense, we are as yet unrealized Christs or Buddhas.
Our lives are a continual process of becoming; which in it’s essence is a spiritual unfoldment of coming to know who and what we are.
When we understand that this is the purpose of our being here and what it entails, we can assist in our own process of Awakening and more easily open to our True Beingness and live the life we were intended to live.
Most spiritual seekers believe that they have to get to somewhere in order to become spiritually Consciousness, or Awakened. I did. But it’s not true.
There is actually nowhere to get TO. All that is necessary is to open ourselves to that which is already here. Spiritual attainment is a function of being Present in the moment and simply watching. The mind/ego always wants to DO.. and to take charge.. but when we simply drop down into our heart and be Present and be Aware, what is already here WILL reveal itself to us. We already are in the Body of God In Creation. We just don’t know it. But Life wants us to know it.
The Divine WANTS us to Awaken
In my third Opening into Oneness, the Voice came to me for the third time and It said “It is my Will that you know Who, and What you are, and that you create your lives in joy”.
After I returned to my normal state of consciousness I realized that what God was saying was that we are all actually HERE to become Living Conscious beings.
And, one way we can begin to do that now is to become Present in the Now Moment, and to live from our hearts. Most people will also need to engage in a process of uncovering their stories and false beliefs, and perhaps release pent up emotional pain as well.
That was the case with me. Just because Life graces us with a spiritual awakening and an experience of Truth.. or several of them as has happened to me.. it doesn’t necessarily mean that we will suddenly become firmly grounded in the experience, or that our stories and issues will miraculously disappear. In fact, that very rarely happens. What does happen far more often is that we experience Truth and then have to deal with the mind after the fact.
You don’t have to wait for a Spiritual Awakening to do that however. You can become aware of your stories and beliefs now just by paying attention to what you think and say on a continual basis.
By doing this type of Inner Work and bringing yourself Present and shifting your conscious awareness to your heart.. and with a sufficient desire.. you can experience your true Being-ness.
When and where are the domain of Grace, but I know that if you want it enough and are willing to do the Work that God will meet you more than half way.
And in the process you will discover that you create a profoundly better life.
You can become truly liberated when you began engaging in a fearless inquiry into the nature of your mind and your beliefs, because in so doing, you come to discover that you are not our stories, our beliefs or judgements. And you learn that our past conditioning does not define you.
You can know and experience that you are an
embodiment of God in creation.
As I said previously, we are actually Light beings who are having an experience of being human. And, the more Present we become in the Now Moment, and the more free of limiting beliefs we become, the more likely it is that we will have an experience of ourselves as the Divine Principle that we are.
So I invite you right now to just stop.. right here and right now in this moment. Stop all seeking, and just Be Present. What you are is already here, inviting you home.
