I am continuously amazed at how deep the inner self is and how truly TRUE it is that to “know thy SELF is truly the beginning of all wisdom.” That statement glows brighter and brighter to shine a lamp of truth into whole new areas of my inner self-daily. I love the surprises I find. The nuggets tucked away in our inner treasure boxes are endless.
How do I go deeper to find this inner light you ask? Well, I am glad you brought that up because it isn’t all that complicated, but you do have to be willing to look and dig. I have said many times that most people do not like the digging part so they avoid it altogether for fear it will be a waste of time or that they will find “gems” they do not like. There is not much that will change a person’s mind who feels it is a waste of time to be introspective. Typically, that type of person wants to live on the edges of like and stay in the shallows. There is no value for them within their own self-can’t change their mind on those humans. There will be opportunities presented to them in the form of problems or situations that need a true self, but there is always the choice to continue to operate out of the false self.
For those that would be willing, but fear the pain, it ends up in two camps. They may begin, but find the journey to painful or difficult (too much work) so they give up. The rest of you, however, are the ones I am talking to. You are my audience.
To go deeper is to desire more from your life and to be willing to look inside for buried treasure. Then, get a good Guide (counselor, coach, wise person) to help you that has lots of Spirituality (not necessarily religion, but someone who is who they say they are and has the truth of their own Higher Self to back it up). You will know a good guide once you work with them. They seem to know things you feel you could never know and they seem to say things that provoke you into thinking in new ways and gaining new perspectives.
You personally need to have the desire to grow and awaken the Spirit in you and claim the parts of you that were repressed, rejected or abandoned long ago. Those pieces will need to be reintroduced and reacquainted so they can be used as holy helpers. They are parts of you so they are “friendlies.” If they sound like an enemy, they are an imposter and are trying to keep you in the dark about your true self. They often sound like a critical parent or other adult from the past. Those parts of you need to go as they contaminate and deceive your brain. Remember, your brain is a computer and does what it was programmed to do long ago. Holy helpers are new software that is friendly and leads you to inner truths and to Ultimate Truth, which can enlighten and stream in from the Divine Word.
Are you willing to begin to dig or dig deeper to go where you have never gone before with your inner self? If so, there is no time like the present to know yourself deeply.
