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 . the process of doing
The fruit- product of imagination , original ideas. the manifested 

The self , the individual , is a world unto itself .

No need for needy giving and taking , just respectful  and joyful sharing in the spirit of symbiosis and choice.

The sweet elixir of life is to be found at the core of the self- or maybe just below in the dantien ? The fuel of the energy body 

The spiritual journey - the journey home -  is the return to our own core , our own source.
 
We cannot access our own source via other people , not by books, or other healers and teachers, or  knowledge, or more information.

Other people , politicians , leaders, gurus , gods , partners , children etc etc may be a huge blessing in our lives and certainly can help us on our path , but one cannot access source via another . 

This process - the journey of coming home cannot be understood intellectually or know by the mind.  It is a living experience and can only be known by doing it for ourselves.

" Teaching is only demonstrating it is possible, learning is making it possible for yourself "

The true self isn't an identity, it cannot be defined- words are only pointers towards it

 I am not saying anything new or original here - but the combination of words  may be a good pointer , or open a door for some.
