I have been on my spiritual journey from birth and I have known about things without fully understanding or knowing where the information came from.
It took me many years on my self-discovery journey to understand what I knew and most importantly to find out who I was and then to rid myself of who I wasn’t.
It took others who triggered me to show me who I was through their mirroring of me, to me.
You see what we see in others is in us and the other people around us are our gifts to discover who and what we are. That is probably not our true self. Because if we are affected by what we see in others it’s something we need to remove or heal in ourselves.
I blamed and accused others of doing wrong by me. However, as I understood myself and found out all was within me and identifying where I’d learned or took on a perception of a behaviour, habit, belief, conditionings etc.
I gradually took responsibility for what I was. And it was my choice to remain as I was or change and grow as a person.
I learned not to judge others for if I judge others I am but judging myself.
I learned to look within to see what was been reflected to me that I had to own. And once I owned it, it disappeared.
A spiritual life is a constant, working on the self and becoming a better person. That’s not becoming a saint. I am not a saint, I am still moody, angry and I get annoyed and I am still learning lessons that are still appearing, however, now I am aware of what is coming to me.
At our core is a lot of hidden stuff and it takes a lot of digging to get to the initial core issues.
We have been taking on others’ stuff, beliefs and behaviours from conception.
Yes, from conception we have been hearing and learning and from that we have been building a perception of our world, but this perception is not necessarily our truth or our true self.
