Identity

On my spiritual journey, the question that constantly arises in my mind and in my consciousness is …..who am I?

Who am I?

I find myself engrossed in activities and engaged in conversations and soon enough I become a part of that which is happening around me. In fact I lose myself in that and in doing so I lose the connection with my true identity. Who I am is then based on what I do and how I look and what I have achieved.

However, who was I before all of that? what was I?

My identity is that of a spiritual entity, of soul. Subtle, pure and complete. I have moved so far away from my original identity, that I find it difficult to comprehend. And yet, the ultimate truth is that I am a soul.
A being of spiritual light, eternal and immortal…….

If I allow myself to be still and detach from the gross reality that I have become accustomed to, then I will be able to transcend into the subtle and the reality of that.

I the soul am a subtle energy, let me experience that now.

 

Om Shanti

Spiritual Pilgrim

an_incredible_journey

I am a spiritual pilgrim, a spiritual traveller, travelling through time.

The journey is long – it seems to go on and on to beyond.

Where am I going to?
A gentle response, from deep within the soul, utters – It is a pilgrimage from myself back to me.

It is an incognito journey I take to find myself. A journey I take alone, that no-one else can see or understand.
It happens in this moment, and in every moment that passes by. The journey is rooted within myself – within the active experience of my thoughts, feelings and emotions.
The happiness and joy, the stress and anger, the friend and the enemy, the bonus and the challenge – these, and more, are all scenes and side scenes that I pass through each day. They are on the journey but are not the destination.

I must journey on and just let them pass…and they will. I don’t need to pack them up and carry them on my journey – that would just be excess baggage that will make the journey more difficult.

Let me not stop. Let me let go and continue my pilgrimage back to me.

Om Shanti

AUM

bodyconsciousness

AUM is the eternal sound of creation…… and I exist ……. within this eternity

A – marks the beginning, the start of the journey through time
U – signifies expansion and the sustenance of the creation
M – marks closure – going back to the essence, the point, the seed

AUM…..

And then from the seed creation takes shape once again….
This is the eternal sound and the eternal cycle of creation.
This is the sound of ‘I’, the eternal being…

AUM means ….. I exist
AUM …. I am

 

Om Shanti

Where Am I Going?

maya2

I the soul take birth on this earth into this body.

The earth becomes my stage and the body becomes my costume I wear to act my part in this story of life, within my journey of many, many lives.

The journey is long and there are many challenges along the way…but I the soul am the traveller and I will continue to move on from one scene of the drama to the next…from one life to the next.

I came onto this earth alone and empty handed and it will be the same when I leave.
I cannot predict my tomorrow, I have no control even of my today.
The only guarantee I have, from the moment of birth is that, in time, I will leave this body.

I am immortal, but the body is temporary and perishable…it will die.
This scene in this body, this costume, will finish but my story and my journey continues….

Where have I come from and where am I going?
Without knowing what and where, I the traveller, I the soul, just continues to travel aimlessness through life. From birth to birth from story to story.

I ask myself, where do I want to go in this journey called life?

Where am I going?

 

Om Shanti

Who is Driving your Rickshaw?

Have you ever taken a rickshaws ride in India?

Going from ‘A’ to ‘B’ is quite a journey of dodging and diving, cutting corners and jumping the bumps until finally the destination is reached. The passengers alight shaken and shocked – just happy to have managed to hold on.

I am the driver and also the passenger of my rickshaw, this body. Each day I do many trips from ‘A’ to ‘B’ and then back again. But how was the journey and is the passenger ok? Am I happy and enjoying the ride, shaken or hurt; is there pain or am I comfortably safe?

If I forget that I am the passenger in this rickshaw, then I will also forget the importance in the quality of the journey. I will focus only on the destination to be reached.

Drive slowly and enjoy the ride. Drive safely avoiding accidents by keeping those vices at bay. Observe the side scenes without getting off and being stuck along the way.

Drive slowly, drive safely and you will enjoy the journey.

 

Om Shanti

The Incorporeal World

The incorporeal world is a spiritual world.
It is a world beyond the earth and the sky, beyond the five elements.
It is a world beyond sound. The world of silence and light.

It is the home of souls – The Soul World.

Having left the home and travelled far, far away, the soul now yearns to return home.

The journey begins in the mind, with one thought. A thought of my home, a memory from the past..
As I the soul sit in the experience of this memory, I take the journey home.

Come, it’s time to go home!

Om Shanti
