Have you ever asked yourself these questions? What are we all doing here? What is a human being? And what is this Life on earth all about?? Want to explore the topic together?
Who/what are we & why are we here exactly?
In short, Human beings and all of existence emanate out of Consciousness. We have an individuated Mind, Body, Intellect, Mental faculties (hopefully), and an I-sense/Ego & Persona. All of this being shaped, ruled and veiled by past & present conditioning, and our beliefs system.
Our essence however, which is pure unconditioned Consciousness, is a bundle of Energy & Information, boundless and free of all judgments & preconceived ideas. It does not have a shape nor a form, neither is it good or bad, worthy or unworthy, beautiful or ugly - IT simply IS.
One could say that Human beings are a mini replica of the pure, invisible, ineffable, and unconditioned Consciousness. They are a conditioned individuated manifestation of the pure unconditioned Consciousness. Which simply means that they emanated from the latter and manifested into the former. But What are we doing here then? Good question. Well, in short again (very short), we are here to re-discover our True Self. We are here to have a human experience in the physical matter and to eventually liberate ourselves from this conditioned form. How? By transcending and remembering what we truly are - Consciousness - through which all of Existence permeates.
Consciousness, also called sometimes the True Self, the Higher Self, God or whatever name you wish to give it, is the essence of what we truly are - "it" is judgment-free, toxic-free and more importantly, full of Love, Compassion, Trust, Creativity, Intelligence and POTENTIALITY... Sounds amazing doesn't it? Feeling like you could use some of that Jazz, don't you? Well guess what, YOU CAN.
Man is Potentiality Manifested in the Flesh
But how, when & where can we meet this... IT?
You can tap into this Source anytime you want, anywhere you are, because it is right here, inside of you, all around you. "IT" is YOU. Realising the purpose/essence of oneself is like turning on a switch, lifting up a veil, breaking up a lock. It is something that can happen gradually through the course of a life, or more "spontaneously" (or so it seems) at one point during our existence. Either way, it is like looking at things from a different angle or from a distance, as the observer, and at the same time being aware of this perceiving.
One way to meet with your true self again, is by realising that all the thoughts, desires, needs & wants you have acquired along the years, are a product of conditioning. Education, Society, Peers & Co have all participated in the shaping of the Person you have become, the thoughts that are passing through your mind and the beliefs that define your reality. These conditioned elements are sitting so deeply in our roots that we completely identify with them and believe them to be who we are. But make no mistake my love, because you are definitely NOT THAT.
Let's look at things from the following angle for a sec
Try to think of your original self as a seed. A beautiful, untouched, OGM-free seed, planted in the soil of Mother Earth. As life unfolds, your seed-self evolves and starts growing into a tree. At the same time though, some weeds also start growing right next to the tree's roots. They are so close to you that they start crawling their way around your trunk, around your branches, to the point where they encapsulate your whole structure...
The weeds are so attached to the tree, that they look like they are part of it, that they belong to it. The tree and the weeds look like they are one & the same. In appearance they are, but fundamentally, only the tree is really existing as a tree. The rest is just weeds that would never be able to grow upwards if the tree wasn't there. Weeds that have been taking on the tree's energy for all these years, and as a result, have been "pulling the tree down", stopping it from growing faster & stronger. Stopping it from letting its True/Tree Essence shine through.
But then one day, the tree sees its own reflection in a puddle on the ground and it notices that something is quite not "right". It realises that the weeds attached to its trunk, which it always believed to be part of itself, had in fact been crawling their way up, in & around its structure, and "merged" into its being. It realises that they had been feeding off its juice this whole time, slowing down its growth in the process.
As soon as the tree starts seeing through the disguise of the weeds, its state of new awareness naturally helps it to get rid of the weeds and to liberate itself in the process. It was as if the tree was born again - as if a new sole/soul tree had emerged after outgrowing the ties that were holding it back down. The tree finds its way back to its pure essence, it can breathe again and grow on its own. It realises the potential that was/is inherent to its true nature, the strength that it had been empowered with, right from the start, right from when it was just a tiny little seed. Originally, we were all once a Seed. This "hidden" potential of growing a Magical & Powerful Human Being free of all "parasites", is in each and everyone of us. You have to TRUST that this POTENTIAL is here. You KNOW it is here. You simply Forgot about it. But now the Time has come to REMEMBER.
