The Eyes of the Soul

  New August 2007 C

Today, I  share a passage from Martia Nelson’s book, ‘Coming Home’:

My greatest teacher was the experience of living in split realities: personality and true self. Personality is our daily companion, our conscious self that sees the world through the eyes of limitation and dutifully keeps us informed about what we can and cannot do. True self, on the other hand, patiently stands by, offering the unwavering knowledge that a state of vibrant well-being and unlimited possibility is our true nature, a birthright that can be lived if we choose to do so. … True self simply refers to the aspect of our being that is completely aware of its expanded nature no matter what we may be experiencing at the time.

Whenever we feel constrained, fearful, unworthy, and inadequate or anything we deem to be negative, we have identified with our personality. We can always choose to view the same situation from the perspective of our soul.

"As a Witness, you begin to discover that you are not that which you have been observing; you are not those things that you have been noticing about your body. Instead, you are the ‘noticer’.”

     I think ‘observer’ a better description of me, after recent events maybe I should add ‘non participant’ bordering on ‘isolationist’! I should stop bothering about how other’s view me but will that be seen as disinterest, apathy ? Is creating a non image in itself creating an image?????

    Hi Kate,
     
    What you wrote here is very eyes opening. Tonight, I will have many hours to ponder upon this subject.
     
    By reading your articles, I feel a great change in my approach to life.  Lots of things to review and to readjust.
     
    Thank you Kate.
     
    Love,

    Personalities can change, however our true self remains as constant as the stars, and there are those who assume multi personalities but their true selves can not be altered.
    I believe there exists good and evil inherent in everyone,  so when we look at ourselves we can love or hate what we see or feel. The greatest struggle for most people is to test their true self by slaying the evil within, allowing happiness to shine, THAT is our birthright.
