When You Don't Know Who You Are

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you don’t know who and what you are at the core of your soul…

 

 

When you haven’t had a glimpse of “the something deeper within”…

 

 

When you haven’t had a sense of being a part of something “much bigger than you”…

 

 

When you haven’t realized that throughout every moment of every up-and-down adventure of your life, there has been a constant “untouched-inner-familiar-you” that has been along with you for the entire crazy ride…

 

 

When you haven’t knowingly touched the space of the impersonal and the unconditional…

 

 

When you haven’t had any of an infinite number of possible big or little insights to give you a sense that you are something other than your past, or your circumstances, or your personality, or your thoughts, or your human form, or your personal experience in any moment…

 

 

OR…

 

 

When you’ve inevitably had many of these insights into your true nature throughout your lifetime, but you’ve simply forgotten them, or innocently ignored them, or unknowingly written them off as something untrue, or attributed them to circumstances, or somehow not realized their significance…

 

 

THEN…

 

 

You will think you are separate…

 

 

You will think you are alone in this experience of life…

 

 

You will think you are navigating life as an individual…

 

 

You will think you are never enough…

 

 

AND…

 

 

In that “separateness” and belief in never being enough…

 

 

You will think you need to look outside of yourself for validation, or for acceptance, or for proof of your worthiness…

 

 

You will compare yourself with others…

 

 

You will think you need to be something “other” or “better” than what you are…

 

 

You will think you need to “succeed” in whatever way you’ve continually changed or added to your made up definition of success…

 

 

You will point to your broken self or the broken world as the “reason why”, whenever your made up expectations of life are unfulfilled…

 

 

You will think that your “bad feelings” and “bad thoughts” mean something significant about you, or your circumstances, or others, or the world…

 

 

You will think that your “good feelings” or “good thoughts” are something you need to chase after or hang onto…

 

 

You will keep seeing things that need to be changed for you to feel better…

 

 

You will need to create thousands of coping mechanisms, and build thousands of walls, to protect yourself from your feelings…

 

 

You will continually react to your “limited personal reality”, not noticing the “infinite impersonal universe” everywhere around you (and within you)…

 

 

You will ALWAYS “need” something…

 

 

BUT…

 

 

If realized in some way that you actually were the universe…

 

 

If realized in some way that you actually were everything…

 

 

If realized in some way that you actually were everyone…

 

 

You could never be separate…

 

 

You could never be alone…

 

 

You would never “need” more…

 

 

You would always be enough…

 

 

It's a funny and crazy and miraculous thing, this human experience of life that we have on this earth. And we can never know when or how any of us eventually discovers the truth of life…

 

 

BUT…

 

 

What if you got even just a tiny glimpse of “something”, and it made you wonder…

It is heartwarming to read words that can describe my own experience.

My sister Jerry Lee Allen gave me your web page and am wondering if you have a practise in Winnipeg.
