The Self


Today I have been considering and exploring how I view the self .

I have been entertaining the idea/ metaphor/ symbolism of the tree  as the self-

 The world tree- as within , so without.  Microcosm /macrocosm 

The roots - the stability , the foundation . Balance
The trunk , where creative energies and chi force travel to and from.  
The core - solar plexus , center of the self , Core of the self.  home of the sun
The branches - The throat - the expression and outward manifestation of  creative energy .

some home truths

we can agree mentally, as an idea but are we living these truths ?

Free will and choice.

" It was meant to be" - one of the many lies we betray ourselves with. Truth - if it's meant to be ...its down to me !!!
 Acceptance and responsibility for all choices and lack of choices 

Love and light is all very well and good but we'd not grow and learn without the darkness ...balance of both = wholeness and oneness - oneness is not one sided

Be the star of your life

Being the Star of your own show, discovering yourself, being yourself, for yourself is the ultimate gift you can give to yourself and the healing of humanity. 
This doesn't mean being self centered it points to recognizing that you/I are central to your/my own life.

Some will try and control and strive for power over others. This happens subtly in everyday relationships, families, work and on the bigger global scale. Those who need to control and dominate others have little or no mastery over themselves unfortunately.

The shadow

When a dark mood, a depression or heaviness comes over you , there is little point in fighting it , for what you resist , persists . If you can find the courage and compassion for your unowned , darker parts of yourself, sit with it, walk with it , meditate with it ...embrace it as you would a guest or a friend ...for it has much to teach you ....you'll also find that what you embrace will be erased and what can be welcomed in and owned will become part of the whole ...this is healing ...bring back the denied aspects of our self, the fragmented self back into one being .

Dont take anything personally- 3rd agreement Ruiz

This is a great Agreement to master with one's self

What is heaven ?

Heaven is total freedom to be oneself in the moments

A conscious society

My vision ( i'm sure it's shared by others also)
Personal empowerment is, above all else, the most important thing for a healthy society to thrive.
THEN shared power within the community for the greater good  working together we become a positive force for growth , change and evolution.
We can the decide to trade and move about to other communities with respect and  gratitude  for all

My opinion...no need for a central government with ultimate power over a country and definitely no need for  a central world government, who' s power hungry leaders will dominate and control the masses

I don't know

Three little words that have the power to free us all . 

I have many many questions, but very few answers ( luckily the few answers answer most questions ultimately) 
But my point is...it's OK not to have an answer!
Of course the mind hates this. The mind hates uncertainty, of not knowing . It can't be comfortable unless it has a solution! 
Sit with this discomfort , allow it ..smile at the mind ...squirming and wrestling for the "right" answer , for it all to make "sense" 

unbecoming

Unbecoming , unraveling oneself . This is the spiritual work . Being " spiritual " does not mean getting better at this or that ... It means unbecoming everything we are not . A great part of the spiritual work is to unlearn everything that has been learnt throughout life ... A flower doesn't have any beliefs or doctrine . A flower doesn't sit for an hour's meditation or yoga and then behave unconsciously throughout the day . A flower doesn't judge what's good and bad ...it just accepts what is ...a flower is a perfect example of how one could live a " flowering " life ! Letting go of the masks and layers we wear is a huge part of unbecoming who we are not and becoming who we truly are ....simple !!! This is one persons perspective!
