[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Will we be who we really are?

Just sit for a minute - Inner Light

I wanted to share some points that I got from a lecture by Deborah L
Johnson which came, as usual, right on time, for me.

This week upon reflection, I have learnt that life is whole - the
departmentalization of life is a set up for sufferation. There is you that
shows up for all of life, there is not a different you that show up for
different occasions - how confusing is that to wear so many different
masks? not just for you but for everyone else around you

There is not YOU and LIFE There is not YOU trying to do life You are activity in motion We are life itself - it is not happening to us Turn to your own self as evidence of life When you are coming up with the who you are just don't come up with the
things you have, the things you own, the outer things What is the activity of your life? What is the vibration of your life? What are you resonating with? The test is to demonstrate what you have to demonstrate success. Life is
not a pop quiz. Bring everything , bring all of you, bring it all together It is time to stand on what we know, not on what we have We waste time in judgement about how wrong a situation is, how wrong the
situation we are in is - when we don't have a particular thing or a
particular job or a particular partner, we even go down as far as a
particular handbag, or shoe or designer clothes -Let that go

We don't need the energy of what is wrong. It's called healing, it's called growth, it's called transformation You cannot heal what you don't feel You have to be willing to stand in this moment called NOW Or sometimes we pretend what we are going through or dealing with is
irrelevant because we don't want to deal with it Look at it The question is will be who we really are? Peace
