Who am I today? Each day that we wake up, we have new cells, new thoughts and in reality, we are a different person than we were yesterday, last week, last month, last year. And yet, we still view ourselves and others as the same person. We get stuck in a rut of thinking that "they never change" or "I will always be like that," or "that's who I am". But that isn't true. We are always changing and evolving, sometimes we are even devolving.
I recently read a great book by Eckhart Tolle, called A New Earth. In it he talks about our ego and pain body and how they function. He said that often times we see things in other people that really don't exist other than in ourselves. I found that very interesting. :-) And I've had an amazing opportunity this year to understand how other people are mirrors for ourselves. We tend to think outside of ourselves and project onto other people what we are in our ego state. Being able to stay present with our ego allows us to see that it is only the external "little me" that keeps us in a state of unrest and upset. Learning about the ego helps to keep it in check, so that we can go internally to who we really are at the core of our being. That amazing part of consciousness that is living through us and experiencing itself in the physcial world..
I invite you to discover who you are and who others are each and every day. Each time you learn something, think something different, you are a new person. And the same thing applies to those around you. If you are able to stay in the present moment and be present with yourself and others, you will be able to see who you are and who they are each day. Someone different than they were the day before because they have learned something and shifted who they are. Find out who you are each day and allow that person to shine through..............
