Over the last few days, I have had several conversations and emails about different subjects; however, the underlying theme was the same. We are conditioned by beliefs that are handed down from generation to generation and we forget we are Divine beings. We live life based on this conditioning and do not question it because it is all we remember.
Do you think a Divine being is capable of healing, protecting itself and able to create the life that it wants? When we lose touch with are True-Self and take on the stories of our past we begin to believe that this is who we are. I lived for years with physical and emotional pain all while living an alcoholic life, however this is not who I am. I was never the alcoholic; I was the Divine being experiencing alcoholism. Maybe you were abused, raped or had some other horrible thing happen to you. Do not deny that these things happened, but they do not define who you are now, unless you let them. When we can recognize this and release the past as defining who we are, we can uncover the True-Self, the Divine being underneath the conditioning.
Do not forget who you are and always question anything that is a fear-based belief in your life. Fear only arises within when we lose touch with who we really are and continue to play out the story that our mind is telling us. In the work of Byron Katie called The Work, you ask four questions:
1. Is it true? (Yes or no. If no, move to 3.)
2. Can you absolutely know that it’s true? (Yes or no.)
3. How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought?
4. Who would you be without the thought?
Many of us live our lives without questioning our thoughts or actions. We believe everything our mind tells us which leads to perpetuating the stories of our past and holding onto who we have become instead of living from the Divine-Self. Each moment affords us the opportunity to let go and start living life from this place. If we see this as difficult or hard then it will be. If we see this as our birthright and who we really are, then all the rest will begin to let go. With awareness on your part and a willingness to succeed you cannot fail, because if you are ready to wake up you are going to wake up. If you are not, then you will continue to live out your life from the stories of your past and the False-Self.
