Who I know you are

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” - Aristotle

Today I thought I would give you all a little insight into my own personal perspective on YOU. That’s right, this is what I think about YOU! While I may not personally know each person who reads my writings I generally see everyone the same way, even myself. And I would like to share this perspective with all of you.

You are NOT your body alone. You are NOT what you have or what you own. You are NOT what you do nor are you what you say. These may be reflections of your desires, your reactions and motivations in this life but they are not the totality of you. Nothing in human terms can truly and completely define who you completely are. So what does?

Well, you are what you feel. In every moment of your life you will feel something. Sometimes it is indifference, sometimes it’s anger, and sometimes it can be love. But make no mistake that you become what you feel in each moment of your life. 

You are multifaceted and ever changing emotional changeling. You are going to be angry at times and you may even be frustrated, let’s hope not too much, but you will also be kindness, joy and the love that you feel in your life as well. You are an emotional chameleon that often reflects back what you perceive in your life. 

But primarily, you are an infinite spiritual creature living this human physical experience. You are more than your body and you are more than you can imagine. In other words… you are the love that you feel and you are a critical part of the infinite goodness of this universe. You are part of the god-force that is everything. And you are worthy of it all and more! We all are so very worthy. Because of all this, the only question I ever ask myself is “what do I want to feel in this moment?” Because I know that I determine who I am in every moment. 

You are love. You are joy. You are good. Even when you reflect something else I know who you are. No matter what you do, no matter what you have in your life, this will always be true. And I will always have great love for who you really are. I may not want to participate with what you are reflecting in a particular moment, but I see who you really are and it is good. 

I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
