It’s been a few months since I last blogged a post. During that time I spent some time in India.
In the last blog I spoke about the great advantage of travel as being to wake me up. And it did – new sights (bright colours, dogs, horses, cows, camels and elephants mingling with traffic), sounds (hooting late into the night) smells (litter and rubbish heaps along the roads). The senses came into full play as the wonders of creation unfolded before me.
But more than this. I have been using the age old question, ‘Who am I?’, to bring me into the moment and bring in something other than the world of form. Sitting in a tuk-tuk, I brought the question to mind; there was an immediate expansion and I knew that I am everything. I am all. A deep peace settled over me and in me.
“For much of the time we act from the ego. We react to situations according to who we think we are. In truth we are the essential Self, the observer, the silent witness, the ‘I am’. Believing ourselves to be separate keeps us trapped in isolation or continuing identification with the ego. (Chapt 10: Your True Self)
Try asking “Who am I?”
Remember to be kind and gentle with yourself always.
