Eureka! I've found Myself! - Complete Immersion in Your Real Self
~ lovingly presented by Bill Bauman ~
When we search for our “real self,” we’d do well to start with the biggest picture available. This morning I awoke with these three words calling for my attention: is-ness … all-ness … and oneness.
The core identity of some of us resides in the very is-ness, or essence of life—that quiet, peaceful center of non-active being, that infinite power behind the throne of all creation. If that’s our personal “home,” then we’d serve ourselves well by being loyal to its inspiration and wisdom.
The “real self” of others may be rooted in life’s all-ness—where we feel spacious, vast, free and expansive. If life’s bigger realms claim our fancy, we serve ourselves well by hanging out in its expansive, light-filled styles of expression.
Still others of you may find your realness in oneness—that unified space beyond individuality where we’re one with each other and life itself. In this set-up we honor our unified nature by being loyal to its perceptual and experiential invitations.
Still others find their realness in the three-dimensional phenomenon of love or creativity.
Whichever is your most real-feeling self, the important question is: Are you willing to say yes to its invitation … to own it as your nature … and to live in its gifts? Now could be a wonderful starting point for that adventure, if you want.
I suggest that you look at yourself through the all-knowing eyes of your soul. When I look at you through those eyes, I see:
• God—the divine dressed in the Halloween costume of a human being
• Everything—is-ness, all-ness, oneness, love … everything
• Everyone—every human being, animal and planet, every expression of life
• Love—the giant heart of life replicated in your personal heart
• Wonder—splendor, beauty and magnificence itself
May you find, own and live life as the real, radiant, beautiful self that you are! More importantly, may you find the fun, fulfillment and joy that such living brings!
Blessings to you!
