The Reality of Me

I

When I ask myself the question – Who am I? How do I choose to respond?

The ‘I’ that I am familiar with is based on many levels of identities.

There is the physical identity – the ‘roles’ I play, the titles I have and the identity by which others know me – my relationships etc.

I also identify myself as a personality – the way I express and experience myself. This ‘self’ has been created over time, through the experiences and learning I have acquired in life. It has been developed through events and the environments that have influenced me in life – culture, society, schooling etc.

The least obvious one I connect with is my real identity – one based on spiritual awareness. In this awareness I know ‘I’ exist – the conscience and conscient self. Not the role but the one whom the role belongs to, not the body but the one whom the body belongs to, not the personality but the one whom the personality belongs to. I am the one that holds all of these but am not any of them.

So really ‘Who I am?’

I am energy, the life force, the soul. The one that is eternal light and life. How much am I aware of the real ‘I’ and how often do I understand and experience the real ‘I’?

Unless I learn to understand and experience the real ‘I’, my ‘being and doing’ will continue to be based on my physical identity and my personality, developed though life experiences. In fact I will remain in denial of my own reality and furthermore deny myself the experience of being that.

Can I experience myself as a soul?

 

Om Shanti
