Getting to Know Yourself

‘Knowing yourself is to be rooted in Being, instead of lost in your mind.’

Eckhart Tolle

Tolle begins to explain to us how we can differentiate between who we are and who we think we are.

There are many things that we may like to attach to ourselves as being important, however when a challenge of those beliefs arises your true nature will always reveal itself.

There is a difference between these two ‘truths’, and to be able to find happiness and peace your true nature is where you should start discovering what it is that will make you happy.

You can continue to chase the dreams of ‘things’ that you think will make you happy but without taking the time to ‘Know Yourself’ your chase will be an endless circle of unfulfilling accomplishments.

It is widely accepted across the spiritual and scientific board that ‘Thoughts become things’; however these thoughts must be backed by the emotion that comes from belief and faith. You can continue to deny yourself of the truth and chase something that is not going to bring you happiness once you achieve it, or you can choose to look within.

This does mean surrender. Surrender to the present moment, surrender to the experience you are having and acceptance of the experience without labelling it as being good or bad.

In a world where we are constantly told to control our finances, control our homes, control our children, control our thoughts, control our jobs, control our tempers, surrender may seem to be a foreign idea. But when experiences are coming to you that you are not asking for, under closer examination and the choice to be truly honest with yourself you will see why they have arrived. It is either because you do really want this experience and the desire is planted firmly in your subconscious or it is an opportunity to learn or forgive.

As you decide to experience the moment you will gain clarity about the reason it has appeared. It may appear as an opportunity to break through a block that is preventing you from getting where you would like to be, or a manifestation of something you have believed in and attracted.

This is why it is so important to ‘Know Yourself’, so that you can begin to understand what is going on around you and use the experience to heighten your awareness of your true self.

Every experience is an opportunity for growth and forgiveness; forgiveness of the people around you, and most importantly forgiveness of yourself, and to become aware of this will ensure a constant mending and repairing of the collective consciousness.

Happy Manifesting!
