Just who are you really?
Well, I can and I can't answer that question for you. The part that I can answer is: you are what we all are. We're all the same. We're all part of the same "system" or the same "game" or the same "school". We all have a higher part of ourselves and we all have a lower part of ourselves. We're here to learn, to grow and to become "enlightened."
The part I can't answer for you is the way you choose to go about your own learning and enlightenment. There are many paths and many ways to go, none of them are wrong, all of them will lead us to the same "place", some will take a little longer than others but it doesn't matter.
I believe our TRUE nature is an eternal energy force that's powerful, knowledgeable and capable of anything. And I find it amazing that we can feel so powerless, stupid, and incapable sometimes.
I've discovered that we don't have to feel that way. If we search inside for the truth about our nature, we'll find it. I have seen my life change for the better after discovering what and who I am.
Time: we have lots of it! Time is not short, and time is not wasting away. All we have is time, time, time.
I believe one of humanity's "lessons" is tolerance. We must all become more forgiving and more accepting of the choices that others make. Their choices are simply that - their choices. Our choice should be to accept and tolerate everyone - to live and let live. We have our own choices to consider and we need to focus more on improving ourselves than on trying to change others.
Another lesson to focus on is cultivating unconditional Love. That's got to be one of the hardest lessons in my opinion. There is a word: "Namaste." Which loosly means "I recognize and accept the spirit within you." When I focus on seeing past the "outer-person" and I see the spiritual being inside that is also struggling to become aware and enlightened, then I know I've taken a step in the right direction. It becomes easier for me to love and to be tolerant.
My sincere wish for you is this:
Which by the way, is also my sincere wish for myself!
PEACE! and NAMASTE!
