Growing Spiritually to me is all about letting go and letting be. Living in the moment while being aware of the moment.
We cannot separate who we are from how we are because of outside influences. Our past has made us into who we are today. Yet at the core - we are as is. I believe that as, Pure Spirit we are a totality of ALL. It just that different circumctances and different encounters bring about varied actions and reactions as we allow that specific act to surface.
Everything is already within us. It's just that we are unaware of it. Hence the conscious and the subconscious are both entertwined for we become aware of parts of our subconscious when it gets triggered by events in our daily lives.
Who we are as PURE SPIRIT is who we are as OUR TRUE SELF. I AM = PURITY OF SPIRIT = OUR TRUE SELF!
Who we are has NOTHING to do with what we look like, how we dress and carry ourself, our social status, career, money, religion, sexuality, material things, how we sound/our voice, the way we walk, etc. We are all different in our choices and preferences; the way we communicate, touch, feel, think, process our thoughts, act, react and interact with each other. Yet these are layers that we identify with and creates our persona, and how we see ourselves and see others.
When we STRIP all the layers away and remove all of the negatives; fear, hatred, violence, abuse(both physical and verbal), racism, discrimination, unfairness, exploitation, etc; things that does not serve our higher self, we are left with LOVE, TRUE BEAUTY, PEACE and HARMONY! A place we can then RESONATE and live in TRUE BLISS!
