Who Am I? - Discovering My True Self

‘I’m not a body with a soul, I am a soul that has a visible part called the body.’ – Paulo Coelho, Novelist

Recently, I wondered who I really am after realizing that I am neither my body nor my mind. I discovered that my body has its own mind as it performs bodily tasks on its own. It fights diseases, digests foods, and detects temperature changes without my help. Besides, I discovered that some bodily functions, such as hair growth, skin cell growth, and muscle movement, continue after death. For this reason, it dawned on me that I am not my body because it can somehow function without me.

Besides my body, I realized that I am not my mind because my mind can think on its own. Sometimes I might want to quiet the mind through meditation, but it continues thinking. Also, I might want to focus on positive thoughts, but my mind refuses to cooperate. I thus discovered that the mind is not me. Instead, it’s a gift from Infinite Intelligence that enables me to think and imagine.

Realizing that I am neither my body nor my mind enlightened me that I am a spiritual entity in a human body. I discovered that I am an individualized part of the Great Spirit that created the universe. This insight made me leap with joy as I realized that just like a drop in the ocean possesses all the properties of the ocean, I also possess all the qualities of the Great Spirit because I am part of it.

I then realized that I seldom enjoyed life because I never identified myself with my true identity. Instead, I identified myself with my body, mind, and ego. I worried when my mind entertained anxious thoughts, and I felt bad about my body because it didn’t qualify for the society’s beauty standards. As well, I paid too much attention to my social status, self-image, and financial status, which are all products of the ego.

For this reason, my primary mission from today onwards is to transcend my body, mind, and egoic-self, and live as my true self because I know my life will completely change if I do so.

You must also join me in my mission because our sufferings will end when we live as our true selves. Nothing in the external world will disturb our peace of mind, and we’ll interpret everything positively when we live as our true selves. Moreover, although we might continue loving our material possessions, we’ll detach from them, and therefore, we won’t feel bad when we lose them.

We’ll also stop dwelling on our difficulties, and we’ll stop living in fear. As well, we’ll experience mysterious synchronicities and our minds we’ll be quiet.  Lastly, solutions to difficulties will become clearer, and we’ll always be in a state of Love, Trust, and Surrender.

 ‘As you expand your awareness as to who and what you really are, you get to make choices that liberate you from limitation.’ – Michael Beckwith

May the universe bless us with the ability to live as our true selves as soon as possible. Amen

The END.
