“I cannot tell you any spiritual truth that you don’t know already. All I can do is remind you of what you have forgotten.”- Eckhart Tolle
Discovering the truth of our true nature, unleashed a passion and sense of purpose in me, I hadn’t felt for quite a while. It also unveiled to me, my infinite potential, which had been previously masked by my learning and limiting beliefs. I have also since gained a sense of freedom and relief in the knowledge I don’t have to believe, or give time to every thought I have.
Through this discovery I am now experiencing life in a more loving, carefree and compassionate way. Having had many spiritual experiences from a young age, I grew up conflicted with an inner knowing we are all one, while being taught we are separate. While at this young age I couldn’t fully understand or explain to others what I had experienced, science has since caught up, having discovered everything in the universe is made of the same energy.
Another realisation I’ve had since coming to understand how our mind works is, I previously believed my emotions were a reaction to outside circumstances, I used to spend a lot of time analysing why someone would behave badly towards me or imagining how I might resolve a situation that was causing me to worry. On gaining the understanding that I can only ever feel the emotions of my thinking about the behaviour or circumstance, has led me to a whole new perspective of how life works.
This doesn’t mean I accept disrespectful behaviour, I trust I will handle it as needed in the moment, however, I no longer spend time trying to figure out why someone could act that way, knowing, as we all think differently, It would be an impossible task. I also realise now, the more thinking I give to it, will just keep me in uncomfortable feelings of anger, worry, or anxiety.
As I’ve come to see the magnificence of who we truly are, I treat myself and others in a more loving, gentle way. I am kinder to myself on the days my mood is low, especially so on mornings when I wake up and just want to put the cover over my head, finding it hard to muster up the energy to interact with the world.
Intead of worrying about why I feel that way and berating myself to get up, fearful it could lead to depression if I don’t fight through it, I now understand low moods are a normal part of the human experience and is my inner wisdom’s way of letting me know I’ve been overthinking life again.
This has been a major relief to me and has helped me to be more kind to myself during those low mood times.
Understanding my natural state of being is one of peace and there is nothing I need to “do” to get back there, simply knowing low moods are part of our experience of life, and that new thought will soon flow through my mind is enough to move me into a nicer feeling state.
Within this quieter space, my thinking becomes reflective, naturally bringing more peaceful, creative and innovative thoughts to my mind, allowing me to see through the illusion of my worrisome thoughts, seeing them now for what they are, made up images, projected onto the screen (consciousness) of my mind.
