When we place labels on ourselves and anyone or anything we are actually limiting the true “self” You are what you are, the tree is what it is and the universe is what we make it to be. We are co-pilots in this realm of energy and what you think and feel vibrates into the dimension of life. This designates what you are and how the universe will be. This is a wonderful gift that all living beings share and can project outward into the universe.
We “are” because life manifests through this human object as with all objects. Humans have obtained a level of consciousness that gives us the opportunity to witness life. At the same time we actually have a chance to feel the partnership that we (object form) have with life. Unfortunately we have unknowingly been misusing this ability throughout our existence.
Life: Acknowledging the one Self
The mind-made restrictions and manipulations on our human consciousness have been very burdening over the course of our evolution. However the awakening of our species self-consciousness (not the self in aspects of form; you or me, but the true self) give us a portal to universal intelligence / life consciousness. It basically comes down to deciding; do we wish to continue existing in a state of illusions? Or do we decide to accept our true essence? We can be “in” the world; but not “of” it.
This simply means that we are consciously able to accept that we are a human form that is now experiencing life or total oneness. Eventually we will relax and release the restrictive and manipulative restrains that our evolutionary and social conditioning has placed on us. Letting go, accepting the moment is a good start. The supposed details of our existence will then fall into place quite naturally.
There is a secret that is not really a secret. The one true self is life and it was never lost. It is you and it is there to accept in every moment of your existence. It is your decision. Will it be an existence of frustration and confusion or a life experience of balance and serenity? What do you choose?
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”
– Henry David Thoreau
