Who Am I? Where Did I Come From?
April 6, 2013 Comments Off on Who Am I? Where Did I Come From?
Rishis proclaim that we are not our body, mind or emotions.
We are divine souls on a wondrous journey. We came from God, live in God and
are evolving into oneness with God. We are, in truth, the Truth we seek. Aum.
We are immortal souls living and growing in the great school
of earthly experience in which we have lived many lives. Vedic rishis have
given us courage by uttering the simple truth, “God is the Life of our
life.” A great sage carried it further by saying, there is one thing God
cannot do: God cannot separate Himself from us. This is because God is our
life. God is the life in the birds. God is the life in the fish. God is the
life in the animals. Becoming aware of this Life energy in all that lives is becoming
aware of God’s loving presence within us. We are the undying consciousness and
energy flowing through all things. Deep inside we are perfect this very moment,
and we have only to discover and live up to this perfection to be whole. Our
energy and God’s energy are the same, ever coming out of the void. We are all
beautiful children of God. Each day we should try to see the life energy in
trees, birds, animals and people. When we do, we are seeing God Siva in action.
The Vedas affirm, “He who knows God as the Life of life, the Eye of the
eye, the Ear of the ear, the Mind of the mind–he indeed comprehends fully the
Cause of all causes.” Aum Namah Sivaya.
