We Can Redefine Who We Are in Every Moment
We need to be who we really are? I couldn't agree more! In my opinion, being
really are is the very essence of health and well-being in body, mind, soul
Being who we really are means there is an integrity, an interiority of
connection, between inner and outer. What I say matches what I do; what I'm feeling
matches what I'm thinking. There are no mixed messages, no double binds
leaving me twisting in the wind.
When I know who I am, I know what my purpose is. I know what I want and I can
clearly and peacefully go about the business of putting my plan into action.
Many aspects of spirituality, medicine, and metaphysical disciplines mirror
this truth that inner peace is made visible when our inner and outer realms are
Who am I really? How do I come to know who I am? Even more vital questions
are, “Do I define who I am, or do I let outer circumstances define who I am?
unconsciously allow anyone or anything define in any way who I am?” If so, I
check that at the door of my internal gateway and say, “No entry allowed here
unless I approve of you--- unless I claim you as an essential part of my
being that I cherish and hold in high regard.”
Over the years, I have had to go to that gateway and clear out old baggage
that says, “not worthy”, “not good enough.” I have had to “re-view” old
childhood perceptions based on appearance and say “I know better now.” I have had
to go to the gateway and remind myself that if I view myself as a spiritual
being, the embodiment of the Divine, with no mental reservations about that
essence, I would be a radiating essence of love, peace, and joy. Radiating that
divine essence is my goal. It is a daily discipline. As I remind myself “I am
that I am,” the clouds of disbelief fade away into the nothingness that they
are so that only my true identity can shine forth. By doing the daily
discipline of laying that divine pattern in my soul, my connection with that pattern
becomes more and more automatic and the old patterns become less and less
visible in my brain and in my life.
Did you know that whatever we practice actually does lay a visible pattern in
our brain? It's called learning! When I consciously choose what I want to
teach myself and what and who I want to be, that pattern is actually laid in my
brain. It works the same for you too! Did you know that?
Part of the process of defining who I am comes from my belief that there are
no accidents; that everything is working together for my good; that I am here
to fulfill a divine purpose. I believe there is an inherent order in the
Universe and this order is governed by a Loving Intelligence. My identity is
aligned with that Loving Intelligence. I believe we all are.
Through the discipline of meditation, prayer, or any mindful awareness we
strengthen our connection with this Loving Intelligence and we radiate an inner
confidence as we live our lives according to this “plan”. By “plan,” I mean
consciously exercise our free will as we accept our full responsibility for
lives moment by moment. We are the architect of this plan. There is no
outcome. We determine the outcome by our actions, or lack of action. In each
moment we define our identity. We determine who we are!
I believe we have an inner guidance system that lets us know when we are “on
the right track.” We feel comfortable in our own skin. We feel at peace,
relaxed, open. When we're scared, or “down”, or angry, that's our signpost that
we've closed the door to our Loving Intelligence, to our very identity. It's
time to open the door! Let the Light shine in!
I believe that every moment we have the opportunity to define who we are. In
individual ways, we can all choose to identify ourselves as the Radiating
Light of the
Universe and proclaim our presence, here and now. We can answer the call of
“Who Am I” and report for duty, a duty that is a vibrant blessing rather than a
crushing obligation. So, I am here reporting for duty. I am clear about who I
am. I am ready to live and lead by example. Blessings to you!
