The Quest to Be Whole

Did you ever feel fragmented or compartmentalized, like you had to pick and choose which parts of you to be shown to the world? If so, don't despair.

That's the normal state of human affairs.

We so much want to be accepted or gain some benefit (e.g., profit) from our relations with others that many of our encounters break down into one of two categories:

  • we try to show them what they want to see, or
  • we try to entice them to give us what we want.

Either way, rarely do we let our hair down and show ourselves in our entirety, warts and all.

The Unfinished Business of Your Soul

You have come here many times. And during those visits, you have become so wrapped up in the dramas created for you to experience that you have perhaps forgotten who you really are and what you are about.

Even so, within those lives you have undertaken many threads of experience to examine certain issues from different sides, and in the process add your unique imprint on the collective consciousness of mankind.

Isn't It Time to Choose Another Way?

We can do better than this.

Everything that's happening now -- our personal struggles and sacrifices, the economic meltdown, global warming, even the corruption and power games played in Washington and abroad -- is allowing us to realize that what we've created isn't serving us very well.

And by seeing beyond the surface of the symptoms playing out to their underlying causes, we can choose another way.

What way is that? Well, that's for each of us to decide after searching inside for our part in the mess we now see.

The Challenge of Awakening

Awakening to what we are is not usually a matter of an alarm going off and voila, we're wide awake. Rather, it is a process that begins at birth in our "first" life and continues until we complete our "last."

Each stage of that journey brings new challenges for us to experience and explore.

One of the greatest comes with the ego's expanding awareness of its other aspects (e.g., the soul or higher self) vis-a-vis its efforts to deal with the challenges of its life.

Expanding Your Concept of Self

You are what you think you are. So look at yourself. How do you see yourself? What are the beliefs you hold about who you are, what you can do, and cannot? Can you see how those play out within your life, and in that picture you see looking back at you from the mirror?

Your life is the expression of that image you hold. What you see is what you get, so to speak. If you see yourself with limitations, your life will play out that way.

Now, the question is, how can you expand your concept of what you think you are?
