Awareness

Confusion between who I am and who I want to be

When we are confused about who we are and who we want to be, its seems like a daunting task to figure out why the confusion is there in the first. Usually when we are confused, we are seeking clarity for the confusion that in fact is caused by the mind perceiving how something should be or in this case, how I should be. 

In the video below, I share reasons for the confusion and how to understand it so you don’t become consumed by it.

Awareness

As I sat under the oak tree I realized that all of life was in me and I was in all of life. I and everything around me represented the whole of existence. It was subtly resting, nestling and nudging all throughout this world, as a way of letting itself out. The subtly in its expression was simple, pure and gentle like the eternal emotions of joy, happiness and peace. All you had to do was feel its vibration in your being to understand how everything in this life comes to a complete circle. How everything is oneness and a representation of the god-conscious energy that is the heartbeat of all of life, the frequency at which your heartbeat matches the consciousness of your knowingness of love. Its a forever presence that indicates your ability to recognize the love in your heart, in others and in the world. As you become aware of this energy you begin to be more accepting of yourself and of everyone  that you encounter. These encounters are a holy communion as two god present souls come into contact and oneness because of the love present in their being. This way of living and ascending in life is the path to self-actualization and self-knowledge.

Find your way back to your self

We’ve all been there, that place where we lose sight of our self and who we are. How do we find our way back to our self? How do we open our hearts to courage so that we can take that step towards being with our self? We must begin, no matter how painful, no matter how low, no matter how frustrated, no matter how irritated and no matter how upset we are. We have to believe that even in the darkness there is a light shining. This light is not on the outside, but on the inside. Inside of you, where it remains lit, untamed and unshaken by any winds from the outside. Why? Because the outside circumstances, situations, emotions, thoughts or feeling have no affect on it. The only affect on it is the effect of eternal love; which is its fuel. This is the reason why this light burns in the first place. To realize this knowing is the initial step in allowing yourself to come back to  your self. When you grasp on to the stillness presented in this presence, you can use it as a rope to pull yourself out of wherever it is that you’ve gotten yourself lost into. Take a step towards accepting that where you are right now is okay, but its not where you belong. You belong in the open loving arms of your self, with the one that accepts you and loves you unconditionally. The conditions in which you are right now, are not conditions of your self. They are imaginary puppets of your dualistic mind, whose only requirement is that you obey it, honor it and listen to it. What if you didn’t do that? What if you chose not to listen? What if you decided to break the chains with which it has tied you down? Instead, what if you chose to honor Creation, of whose masterpiece you are? And what if you lovingly chose to honor your true self? You are not separate from your self, your mind creates the separation in order to satisfy its desire to always be in charge. Always be in control. Always be in the limelight. Your self doesn’t need this limelight, because its light is not one to be reckoned with or even one of comparison to the mind. It burns confidently in its knowing of who it is and who it has come here to be. Sit with this conscious knowing, thank it and allow it to embrace you and allow it to guide you back home, back to your self.

Daily Prompt: The Outsiders

Your outside is your inside. What you see outside is what you hold inside. They are reflective of one another, just a like mirror reflects back what the mirror sees. There is no interpreting, dissecting, labeling or trying to make an identity of what you see because the outside is just the outer shell of the inside. It holds a matter of great value. It doesn’t try to shape it; rather it becomes shaped by the inside. The inside is what runs the show, what gives the outside life. Living with an awareness of what is the inside; is knowing that the outside is where the physicality is showcased. How you feel and live with your inside is how you will feel and see your outside. Change the way you look at your inside, change the way you identify with your outside. They are parallel lovers, two of the same kind yet heavily rested into their promising images of what they are. They are nothing but signs of life, breathe and this human earthly existence. To be lived on the outside, yet felt on the inside.

How to get Back on Track

In this video I share a personal story of a “slip up”, what I learned and how to get back on track. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is get started and to begin again when we slip up. It’s all a matter of understanding what message your slip up has for you, as well as how you choose to identify with it.

Please share below, how you’ve overcome your own slip ups. If you found this video helpful, give me a tweet at @DEARKAJAL and/or share it with a friend. I would appreciate that 🙂

Have a great weekend!

Is

She sat between now and here, the here and now of living.
As she awoke to the moment,
It shone upon her like the sun’s golden rays,
Pure bliss and joy molded her into it.
She became,
Yet she just is.

Dear Monday,

Thanks for having the word “mon” in you. That’s french for “mine”, in case you weren’t aware, Monday, but it makes me think of you more as “my day” and frankly that sounds like a much more promising start to the week.

Happy Monday!

Three Habits of Happiness

1. Gratitude

  • Your life is the biggest blessing you’ve received, give thanks for it and everything in it everyday.

2. Savor

  • Live in awareness of the present moment, savor it, taste it, experience it, live (verb) it.

3. Find meaning in your work

  • Be passionate, do it for the love and have believe in yourself.

The Encounter

A sense of calmness filled my mind
A sense of certainty loomed over my head.
In that moment, I knew that I had tapped into something far greater than I could ever imagine.
It represented a part of me that I had neglected, ignored, abandoned and even killed.
I saw it standing there, right in front of my own eyes and then some how it collided into me.
As if I had merged into it and it had melted into every inch of my being.
Never have I felt the same, it changed me, it took me out of my own head.
It took me to another world, that was the most familiar place I’d ever been to, but at the same time I’d never gone.
I couldn’t understand what was happening, or why it was happening. It just happened and I was along for the ride, witnessing every single breathe I took as it made its way deep into my lungs, nestling right in.
It felt like I was breathing in magic, fairy dust that ignited all my senses into a deep communion that was held together tighter than any knot I could possibly tie. With each breathe, I felt reawakened, re-assured that I was alright, I need not worry or fret. I simply must feel the feeling and drift away into the unknown of the most truthful thing I had ever encountered. That sense of stillness and calmness still lurks within me, even after I’ve awoken back to this delusional realm of reality, called ‘truth’. I carry, the aroma of its love with me as I continue on my adventures, and dive into the blue daily to uncover, discover and recover more of who I am.
