Today I start this newsletter with a set of very simple question: Who am I? Who are you? What is continuously changing and what stays the same?
Are you your thoughts? Do they stay the same? No. They are a constant flow. In and out!
Are you your emotions? Do they stay the same? No. They are a constant flow. In and out!
Are you your body? Does your body stay the same? No, the body continuously changes. All cells renew themselves every 7 years. So you are not the body you were, when you were born.
We tend to identify ourselves with our thoughts, emotions, deep seated habits, pre-conditioned patterns, our stories that supposedly makes us who we are, or what we believe we are. Stop! Pause and for a moment. In this moment of now be the observer, go within and observe how the emotions (good or bad) flow in and out. How the thoughts (good or bad) flow in and out, and in and out and in and out… Be aware of your emotions and thoughts, just be aware. You are not your thoughts, even though they might seduce you to think so. You are not your emotions- fear, anger, hate, sadness, joy, love, happiness – they just flow in and out to be experienced. You are the Consciousness, the Source, the God, the All there is, the timeless Presence behind it all. Observing and experiencing a life in a physical body on this wonderful Mother Earth.
Eckhart Tolle says: ‘We are a timeless presence…… We are nothing ….. although he pronounces it differently to make: WE ARE NO THING …. We are a formless presence, that is the essence of who we are!’
Here is a wonderful interview with Eckhart Tolle, going deeper into the question of: Who am I? ENJOY!
Have fun and a wonderful, empowered week
