I was reminded of a truth recently, “I am not my body.”
I remember being introduced to this concept in the early ‘90s and it really blew my mind. “I am not my body, I am not my thoughts.” So who are you then? You are actually an energy greater than those things; you are a Soul having a human experience. You may have heard that before, but what does it mean?
The truth of you is so much more vast then what could fit in this body you call by your name. Now, the negative ego would prefer you not realize this. If you identify with your body, it’s much easier to keep you in fear and keep you small. But that’s not the truth. You are a magnificent being, learning lessons in the school we call Earth. Yes, I’m talking to you, YOU are magnificent. Of course you like to pretend otherwise, because you have identified with, and made personal, everything happening to you. You have believed that your body is where the power came from, but it’s not. You play small because of this. But beyond the body, lies your connection to the Divine.
The other key aspect is that you are having a human experience- so sometimes you’re going to forget your expansiveness and need to process your anger, grief, and pain etc. because you are human. The truth of you is much bigger then this body, but you are in this classroom to grow and expand, so you can’t deny the body.
Balance is the answer, no you are not your body, but you are in your body so love it and treat it with kindness. No you are not your negative ego chatter, so calm it, quiet it, and use the power of thought to focus your intention.
Don’t rely on your power, tap into the more of you having this experience and then open up to co-creating with the Universe. The truth of who you really are is truly amazing.
