Today I have been considering and exploring how I view the self .
I have been entertaining the idea/ metaphor/ symbolism of the tree as the self-
The world tree- as within , so without. Microcosm /macrocosm
The roots - the stability , the foundation . Balance
The trunk , where creative energies and chi force travel to and from.
The core - solar plexus , center of the self , Core of the self. home of the sun
The branches - The throat - the expression and outward manifestation of creative energy . the process of doing
The fruit- product of imagination , original ideas. the manifested
The self , the individual , is a world unto itself .
No need for needy giving and taking , just respectful and joyful sharing in the spirit of symbiosis and choice.
The sweet elixir of life is to be found at the core of the self- or maybe just below in the dantien ? The fuel of the energy body
The spiritual journey - the journey home - is the return to our own core , our own source.
We cannot access our own source via other people , not by books, or other healers and teachers, or knowledge, or more information.
Other people , politicians , leaders, gurus , gods , partners , children etc etc may be a huge blessing in our lives and certainly can help us on our path , but one cannot access source via another .
This process - the journey of coming home cannot be understood intellectually or know by the mind. It is a living experience and can only be known by doing it for ourselves.
" Teaching is only demonstrating it is possible, learning is making it possible for yourself "
The true self isn't an identity, it cannot be defined- words are only pointers towards it
I am not saying anything new or original here - but the combination of words may be a good pointer , or open a door for some.

We teach what we need to learn the most !!!!
Dont say "Sorry" . Say " Thank you for showing me as I am "
No need for apologies , just a recognition of what we are thinking / feeling / doing .Once we acknowledge how we are , we can then proceed to thank the other who has shown us , for enlightening us and helping us to grow as we are now self aware . Awareness is the light of consciousness ! Wherever we shine our light of consciousness the darkness and the dark parts of us are illuminated and can be owned and become part of the whole .Then comes self forgiveness ...no need to seek forgivness from others for that doesn't free us ...what frees us is our ability to accept how we are , how we have been and guess what ...love ourselves anyway , regardless . We can then move on, let go and proceed with a bit more self belief , and the darker parts no longer have so much power and domination over us and we need not hide from ourselves anymore
