1. We are the pure, timeless and unchanging Being but due to the debilitating effects of the egoic or personal identity, many people have drifted away from the natural state of being and so begin suffering from deep insecurities within themselves. As a consequence to this, so many human beings want to become ‘someone special’. So much energy goes into this. But, in truth or you may say, from a higher standpoint, no one is special because to be special requires that others have to be less special.
Maybe there is a sense that if I am not different and special, then I will become vulnerable. But actually, to be special, to be anyone, is to be vulnerable. Paradoxically, the way to be free of psychological vulnerability and the sense of separation is to be nobody. Somehow, without the attachment and pride of personal identity, we feel and know ‘I am the same one in everyone’. The sense of ‘I’ being one with ‘others’ now seems greater and truer that the sense of ‘other’ being apart and different from ‘I’. We seem afraid of this discovery yet it is a liberation. And so so much Love arises, and real joy and compassion. ~ Mooji
2. Byron Katie explains her quote “Everything you thought “they were” you ARE” in this short 2 minute loving Christmas video… very powerful http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zz0AQr0Or0
3. To acknowledge the existence of only Love, offer solely that.
4. In that “other” one we have an opportunity to find our Self or lose ourselves. If we see that ourselves and the other are one in the love that connects all, inclusive of God and all of creation, then we have found our Self. If the “other” is seen as separate – to be feared and/or as having something that we need or want, then we have lost our self.
