Identify With Your Soul
On our journey toward greater awareness, the second step is about finding our identity. At some point in our life, for most of us, there comes a time when we ask the question, "Who am I?" It may not come to us just like that, but it comes in some form or another. The first step in the process of becoming more aware of the answer to that question is about determining who we are not! We discover that we are not defined by what we do. This is often times a reflection of Ego. It is not 100% Ego, but most of us come to a point where too much of what we do is a reflection of Ego. Finally, we decide enough is enough and we begin to break out of the mold we have created for ourselves. We begin to let go of Ego!
As we begin letting go of our Ego-self, we step into this space of possibility. We have a choice now to decide who we wish to be and all sorts of possibilities from which to choose. So, how do we decide? All of a sudden it becomes a little bit scary to think we are in control here. We are responsible for the choices we make. We have to decide for ourselves what it is that we want in this life. We have to decide who we wish to be. We are no longer able to just go through the motions now, because we are waking up! Now is the time when we must go within to find the answers we seek. Now is the time to wake up to who we really are. Now is the time to see ourselves as not just connected to Source Energy, but rather an extension of It! Now is the time to identify with our true nature, our true Self, our Soul!
This process is only scary because we don’t know ourselves very well. That “Who am I?” question is really very important to answer. The way to remember who you truly are, and it is just a matter of remembering, is to go within. Spend time with yourself. You can do this through meditation, journaling, or any activity that allows you to reflect on your desires and choices in life. It is often important to get the perspective of others in life, but now is not one of those times. Go within! Get to know who you really are. Your magnificence is beyond anything you have yet imagined. Whatever method works for you to get in touch with your true self, do that! It is the most important journey you will ever take.
It is most important that you uncover for yourself your true nature, but sometimes we need encouragement in order to believe what we find. This is certainly one of those instances when what you find might seem “too good to be true” and therefore something you might justify not believing! So, I will relate to you my own thoughts and rememberings about who I am and the nature of All That Is! This is not to give you something to believe and accept as your own belief. This is simply a story about what I believe about my own true nature that may encourage you to believe what you find out about who you are. Hopefully, it will inspire you to see even more wondrous aspects of your own true nature!
As I began the real process of finding myself, I was drawn to a book called Conversations with God, and I thought, “Who does this guy think he is to have a conversation with God, The Almighty!” Problem is, I really was drawn to this book. At first I ignored it and went on about my Christmas shopping, but the thought of someone actually having a conversation with God was intriguing. And, what if he really did? What did God say? I couldn’t get it out of my head and a couple of months later I bought the book and read it in 3 days. What I read and heard from that book changed my life! It began the process I continue today, some 13 years later, of getting to know who I am.
Let me tell you what I know about who I am and what I believe about who we all are and why we are here. I know that I am a spiritual being, connected to and part of this universe and all that it entails. I know this because I have seen and experienced the connection and how my thoughts, words and deeds affect me and all those I come into contact with as well as all those they contact and so on into infinity. I know this because I have seen other
