Do I Really Need To Share My Insights?

A trusted spiritual friend of mine remarked the other day that my spiritual realizations that I share were egocentric in nature and that while it was OK to share my musings, while it was OK to come from the ego a touch, it was egotistic at its core. He said that based on this, there is NO NEED to share my realizations with anyone. I thought about what he said for a few days and here is what I believe.

There is no way for me not to come from ego. I am a human composed of a persona/psyche/ego and part of my awareness sees life through the lens of my smaller self. When I share my spiritual realizations, there IS a part of it that is ego in that there is some desire to control, approve, judge, compete and compare but what is the motivation?  At the same time, my ego’s desire to aggrandize is important because it is a gateway to higher spiritual awareness. I need my egocentric ability to hear what my Spirit and soul are telling me and I have to have the will to accept it for myself and to be a wayshower for others. I can certainly keep it all to myself but I find this to be un-spiritual.

I decided that sharing my spiritual thoughts was also based on seeking affirmation and corroboration of my spiritual experience to see if I am on the right path, to see whether my thoughts are being guided by Spirit, soul or are they just self-centered mental chatter. I decided that when I speak about my spiritual thoughts, I am looking to see what others experience so that I may validate that it IS something we all are going though in our collective journey to soul enhancement and that I am on the right path. I decided that I am not looking to be better than or compete with anyone in spiritual oneupsmanship. I am not trying to top anyone. I am simply working on being better.

If it is true that when I speak about my spiritual thoughts that I am ego-driven, what does that say for all of those who have shared their spiritual thoughts in the Bible, the Koran, in other sacred texts, in all the books written about spiritual ideas and experiences? Are they all just ego? Can we really say their motivations were just all ego or a touch of ego? I think not.

All I can say is that these spiritual realizations that I have definitely boost my sense of self and for me it is the sense of Higher Self not my little self where I want to aggrandize a “I am better than you,” or “I am further ahead of you on the spiritual path” type of attitude. These spiritual realizations that I have that I post here help me to sharpen my quiet confidence. Yes, there must be some egocentric aspect to my spiritual realizations because I have an ego and I perceive it as the gateway to apprehending the more ethereal realities that are here. I can say that I am NOT egocentric, I am behaving egoically and that is OK with me as long as I don’t use it to dominate others.

I Am Feeling My Light Body

My Spirit, my soul has asked me to concentrate on my Spirit, my soul. I often wondered why it did this, what did it want from me? I discovered that in this lifetime, it was my destiny to connect with and be my Spirit, be my soul in order to not only accept that I am Spirit, I am soul having a human experience but that I can function from Spirit, from soul while I am in my body. What happened then?

When I began to accept that I am Spirit, I am soul, these aspects of myself spoke to me and let me know that I was not emanating Light, my Spirit, my soul. These aspects were emanating me. The Light that I saw around me was not coming from me, the human. I, the human, was being projected by my Light body. My Light body was the creator of my human body and I, the human, was in my Light body and not my Light body in my human body. See what I mean?

What this lead to was actually getting communiques from my Light body. It started “talking” to me but not as humans talk in a spoken language. This Light body language was in the language of sensing, of a feeling and the feelings were very clear and precise so that there would be no mistake in what my Light body was telling me. It also speaks in pictures just like when I dream. In this case, I saw a bluish, white Light surrounding me and it gave me a sense of a very powerful entity, a very solid being like the rock of Gibraltar. Believe what you want of this and it was my experience with my Light body which I now realize I am in. My Light body is not in me, I am in my Light body. So, now, when I see the Light emanating off of me, I know that I am seeing my real self. Why is this important?

This is important to the collective consciousness of humanity because humanity believes that the physical is all there is and has made up all these imaginary things about Spirit which are misguided. What things are those? The biggest misconception is that Spirit is separate from us, that Spirit is “out there” somewhere, in some place else. Another one is that when we die, we go back to Spirit. False. We are Spirit now having a human experience and when we died, we simply are our Light bodies right here, right now. There is no going anywhere. You’re still in your same consciousness, whatever that was while you were having your human experience.

These days, I am feeling my Light body. I see it, I feel it, I acknowledge and function from it. This makes me an aware soul traveler. I am a conscious being having a conscious human experience. I believe this is something for you to consider for yourself as well.

Step onto Your Own Wisdom Path: Self-Acceptance

Self-Acceptance

One of the biggest inner discoveries of my life was finding out that in order to be accepted by others, to be able to belong to the outer community, I had to accept myself first. What does that mean, accept yourself first? I found out that self-acceptance meant liking, loving myself, my persona/psyche/ego just the way it was, good, bad or indifferent. It meant dropping my self-loathing and learning to be exactly who and what I am and then looking at what behaviors no longer served me and working on bettering how I interacted with myself and others. When I accepted myself totally, I found myself being accepted by the community at large. I became authentic. I was me and that was good enough for me. I didn’t need to change me in the sense that I needed to be someone else or strive for some glamorous but false notion of the perfect person. I could be me and a better version of me as I continued to work on shoring up my weaknesses and capitalizing on my strengths. Why is this important?

From my experience with self-acceptance, with fully accepting myself, this perspective of life is critical because it allows us to follow our true destiny and one can only do that by being exactly who they are. Once you accept who you are, blemishes and all, you begin to attract all that is needed to achieve your destiny in life. Remember, you attract what you are. If you are not authentically yourself, you attract that which is contrary to who you really are and become imbalanced, out of touch with the core of your being. You not being you and wanting to be someone else Is playing a game of hide and seek with your real self. It becomes a life of frustration because you don’t live according to your own natural self but the sense of self of another. You allow who you are to be determined by someone else. You are always on the outside looking in.

How did I achieve full self-acceptance? While it took me a long time, it was a matter of examining
myself, seeing what was there, finding out who I really am, discovering my true weaknesses, strengths, my likes and dislikes, my talents, my beliefs and my desires. I say that this took me a long time because this effort of self-discovery of my real self was not only a difficult process, it was also difficult for me to believe who I really was.

All my life I thought I was less than others, weak, worthless, when I come to find out that I am very powerful and that others wanted to be just like me. That was a huge revelation for me and I had to accept that I am very powerful.  To accept yourself takes effort. It takes delving deep into yourself and seeing what’s there. It takes guts, bravery and persistence. Even though it was a struggle, it paid off big dividends because in the end, I discovered who I really am and I accepted ALL OF WHO I AM WITHOUT RESERVATIONS. It was the key to my greatest successes in life and achieving all my dreams. Self-acceptance, I found, is truly the key, the secret, the giant step to a life of power.
