Sense of Self

Do you know who you really are and feel good in your skin? You should because you are a wonder of life to behold. You’ve come into this world on a mission to do something special, and your whole life is about finding out what that something is.

Do you feel connected to your soul as though the two of you are one? You should because the two of you have probably been in many life times together and share the richness of growing. What about your Spirit? has your sense of self made you realize that’s the one you should be listening to and not your ego?

A sense of self is so important as you travel on your journey. Without the realization of who you are and what you are about, you would get lost, and if you’re feeling lost now, that is why. How do you recover, or even discover your sense of self? Lose yourself by noticing and helping others.

Treat everyone and everything with importance and respect. If someone is in a wheelchair, just don’t converse with the one pushing the chair, but really notice and speak to the one in the chair. Whenever you are involved in the care of something outside of yourself, you will grow closer and get to know the real person inside yourself.

Life’s about the good you do, the beauty you see, the love and happiness you spread like seeds. So get a sense of who you are and be proud, just don’t get lost into yourself allowing your ego to push your Spirit out.

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.”

  1. Thank you for this beautiful post. I love your spirit and how you spread the word of loving others, especially the person in a wheelchair. Yes…they have feelings too.

    For me, it has always been like this, I have always felt connected to my soul, it works through me, and I feel that it is my soul that is using my body to accomplish its mission. The challenge for me, has more been about the human experience. Understanding that I am also human, and that I have to accept living in a human world, having a human experience. That has been challenging. I don’t know exactly how to explain it, but there are many things about being human that feels limiting and does not make sense to me. When I meet people who act out of their egos I don’t know how to handle it, and I feel insecure and shy and scared. This has made many people think that I am weak, but I don’t think I am. I have been told by many people that I have to change, to adapt more to the world I am living in, but I don’t know, it does not feel right.

    • I understand what you are saying, Line. I have felt the same from time to time. It’s when we come up against people who are ruled by their egos that living in the human world gets tough. Gentle souls have a hard time dealing with ego driven people. You don’t need to change, it’s the other people that need to drop their egos at the door and be more like you. The egos probably feel intimidated by you because you are enlightened. Just stay the way you are and maybe the ego driven ones will follow your light and find their Spirits.

  3. most of the time, I do feel comfortable – good in my skin… this was not always the case – I recall feeling very alone in youth and it took a lot of work to get right. I know how to re-engage my spirit when the ego interferes – meditation really was a tremendous blessing find.

    Thanks for another thought-full post Michele!

    Everyone describes life in their own based on their knowledge and experiences they have gained. It all seems complicated and stressful to explain the web of life in simple words, but the moment you start seeing things from a selfless perspective, your ego dissolves like some in air.

    All of a sudden the complex and mind-boggling situations of life look like a stroll in a park.

    I had never realized that sitting under a tree and being lost in your thoughts is among the subtlest pleasures of life until a few years back. Now, I look forward to days with good weather when I can go and sit alone to converse with nature and my-self.

    • I’m with you, Krishna Dev. Nature is what brings me to my Spirit. I too love it when the weather is warm and I can spend my days outside. I’m really behind in going on blogs because I have been spending a lot of time outside working in my garden. Thank you for coming by 🙂
