An Inside Story 56
TWO WORLDS… 4
IN his book, ‘Conversations with God’, Neale Donald Walsch asked who we really were? God answered, “You are not your body. Who you are, is limitless and without end.” ‘The truth is we are not the conglomeration of bones, muscles, tissue and internal systems that we call our body. That is not Who We Are. Our body is ours, but it is not us. It is something that we are using.
It is a tool – a device – a mechanism that responds and reacts in particular ways under particular influences and when subjected to particular stimuli. Our body can be hurt or damaged or even destroyed, but ‘we’ cannot. There are those who believe that the body holds the life essence we call our soul. That is not correct. It is the soul that houses the body.
Our soul does not live within our body. It is the other way around. Our body lives within the force field (sometimes called Aura) that we call the soul. Our energy – soul goes on forever. So does our neighbours, our loved ones, in fact every soul on earth and in the Universe, goes on forever. There is no place where one soul ends and another begins. We are all One.
This one soul is the soul of God, or Universal Intelligence, or whatever name you may wish to use, manifesting itself as ‘All That Is.’ It Is the All In All, the Alpha and the Omega, the great Am/Not Am, which I am sure you have heard of in much sacred literature. That is who we really are.
We are ‘That That Is’. You, who are reading these words at this very moment, Is ‘All That Is’. That is why you are so special. There is only you.
That is why any one person cannot be better than another, or that any one soul is more pleasing to God than another, or that any one soul can be condemned to ‘Hell,’ or that any one path is the only path to Divinity – To enlightenment – To leading us back to our true home’…
