The Self

Posted on 7 August, 2016 at 20:05 Comments comments (377)

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.

Free will and choice.

" It was meant to be" - one of the many lies we betray ourselves with. Truth - if it's meant to be ...its down to me !!!
 Acceptance and responsibility for all choices and lack of choices 

Love and light is all very well and good but we'd not grow and learn without the darkness ...balance of both = wholeness and oneness - oneness is not one sided
