We live by experience, and we create our stories. Today you will go out into the world, and you will share your story, your life history; the epic adventures that make up the sum of who you are. What is your story, what will you share?
Our stories are our methods to define ourselves in ways that bring us meaning. We create labels and we use these labels and stories, wearing them like mantles. We become them- from the very moment we tell the tale, to the embellishment of how our story affects and defines our life. Everything that we are, becomes wrapped and cloaked in this one life story; and it is this story that creates our perceived truths, values, and beliefs.
Your story and my story, are small “snippets”, momentary snapshots into the window of our BEings. Our story by no means defines, labels, or explains who we are. The story we each have created can be compared to a “movie trailer”, showing one miniscule fragment of action in an otherwise lengthy drama feature.
We use our stories to define, categorize, and label; good and bad events, people, and experiences. The story with its labels become our focal points and measures for success, happiness, and wellbeing; or lack thereof.
Stories and experiences are important, they serve as instruments helping us make sense of a complicated world. But our stories are not our ultimate truths. Who are you truly: if you have no career, no powerful job title, no home, no car, no money, no relationship, no physical health? What if you have lost mental health? How does society, and the world at large define and label you then?
So, who, and what are you then, without all of these labels and stories?
It is my belief that what lies deep within and through; is the answer. You are pure essence – energy; pure God source. You are love. You exist as love; and nothing less. You, as pure God source are here to love, to serve, and to experience. You are here to live to your highest and most divine capacity; to reveal the God source within you. How you choose to use, define, and measure your experiences and stories is left to you alone. You can use those stories as a mantle to cloak yourself within, or you can reveal the true essence of your being- and live as God source. To live as God source, is to remove the need for stories, labels, comparisons, measures of success or failure. As pure God source you exist here, and now, to love, experience, and serve. Each experience then, when viewed through the lens of Divine God source, is absolutely perfect and brilliant; nothing less.
Through this Divine lens, you discover that revealing your truth, is the only thing to do. It becomes the right thing to do. You exist, you BEcome, and you live our your life in a way that honours that understanding; serving and being in reverence to all. How others perceive you becomes their story and their label.
Will you remove the mantle to unveil your true essence?
