Two Worlds 3
WE ARE ONLY AWARE of the physical half of ourselves, so how can we ever discover the truth of who we are? We must look within our own mind. Whatever we do, we mustn’t believe anything from an outside source, no matter how plausible it may seem.
Believing someone else’s opinions or beliefs immediately stops us from ever finding out for ourselves. It’s the same with going to church, which is okay in itself; the problem is when we believe what the preacher on the pulpit is saying. They may contain some truths but they are so hidden in rhetoric that it is very difficult to find.
Certainly listen, read and digest the meaning of what any person, religious or otherwise is trying to convey but we must allow ourselves the freedom to decide what our own truth might be, otherwise we’ll become stuck in a quagmire of ignorance and continued reliance on someone else’s truths, not our own.
Learning who we truly are is made a lot easier when we realize that there is something within us that already knows, so it’s not so much that we need to learn anything, rather we need to remember what we already know but have temporarily forgotten.
We might say to ourselves, ‘What’s that got to do with me? I have no interest in anything spiritual.’ This may come as a shock but we are all destined to learn (or remember) – it can be in this lifetime or it may take quite a few more lifetimes, but eventually we will fully understand who we truly are, both physically and spiritually – so why not start now?
We are spiritual beings more than we are physical beings really, so why is it so difficult for us to answer the questions about our spirituality? Because we are attempting to find finite answers to an infinite question.
Consequently, it can never be fully resolved while ever we are here on this physical level, for we are all finite beings imprisoned in this finite world.
It’s no different than trying to describe a world in another dimension. It is impossible for a three dimensional being, such as we all are, existing in a three dimensional universe to describe say, a one, two, fourth or fifth dimensional world. Try it!..

_____________Just be, as the consciousness that you are.”
