Who are You? and How To Be That

Written by on January 7, 2015 in Conscious Evolution, Conscious Living with 0 Comments


Who are you and how to be that - OpenhandIt strikes me that the biggest problem humanity faces right now is a case of mistaken identity. People mistake themselves for something they are not; and this generates all manner of false lifestyles and suffering. And even when a person discovers they are not the ego, there frequently follows all kinds of attachment and identification with qualities of the soul: like “I am love” for example. So what about ditching all kinds of identity completely? What about surrendering into the infinite vulnerability of the moment – into infinite potential.

How about just softening into this presence and giving energy to what arises from it?
How might that positively change your life and the world around you too?…

We are infinite potential – pure presence

I put it to you that what we are is infinite potential – pure presence. It is that which constantly resides in the background of your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Everything originated from this ‘Source' and still does. Life – and the soul – emerge from it, but do so because of no design or plan. If there was some kind of intention, that presupposes a creator, and then you're left with the problem of who created the creator?

No, I put it to you that everything emerged from pure presence and still does. Pure presence never went away and you are that; what's more, when you are no longer isolated from this Source, when you are being a living, breathing, thriving expression of this, then you feel like you just came home, like all the lights in the universe just came on; you know yourself as ‘who' you truly are – this is an enlightened state, the sweet nectar of life itself.

There is nothing to compare with this state; everything that people strive or effort for is merely a reflection of this experience. Because there is nothing else to know but the living, breathing expression of this state. When you are in that, all your questions are immediately answered; what's more, the soul in you flows from this state aligned with the whole of life. There's a feeling of total rightness. Life effortlessly creates itself around you. There's just no need to intend or intentionally manifest – you are being infinite potential and life manifests through you.

This state of being is where everything begins and ends – the circle completed, everything answered.
So how can you get into this state?

How to be who you truly are

Here's the problem: you cannot aim for this absolute divinity. You cannot set course for it, intend it or try to make it happen. And you cannot hold onto it, by making statements about it; like “I am love” for example. Because the moment you do, the moment you identify or attach to something, when you form a fixed relationship with some quality inside yourself, then immediately, you've established separation from the presence that you are – you've created the small “I”.

So you cannot intentionally aim for it and find it. There is nothing to find!

But there is something you can do. The soul is a living, breathing expression of this awesome potential that you are. I've discovered that when you align with your soul, when you recognise it arising in you – and then ‘jump' into it, like jumping into a flowing river – then time and separation cease, you open a space through the moment, you ride the wave of the soul all the way back to the Source.

You are now being the Source, as a living breathing expression. You know yourself as the Source – as the One – and it feels totally awesome, yet simultaneously awesomely ordinary. And now authentic action arises from you – through you – aligned with the rest of the universe; literally because you are being the universe. There's nothing like it. After eons of desolate separation, you've come home to who you truly are.

We tried to capture an essence of this expression, of this feeling, of this phenomenon, in this recent Divinicus Seminar in Glastonbury…

from my heart to yours
