THE TOPIC

Has materialism and social conditioning caused us to forget who we are?

OVERVIEW

Today I’d like to share a few lines with you from one of my favorite books from my personal stash that chose me some 20 years ago, called: The Seat Of The Soul by Gary Zukav.

The physical arena is a magnificent learning environment. When perception of the physical world is limited to the five-senses, the basis of life in the physical arena becomes fear. Power to control the environment, and those within the environment appears to be essential.

The power to control the environment, and those within it, is power over what can be felt, smelled, tasted, heard or seen. This type of power is external power. External power can be acquired or lost, as in the stock market or an election. It can be bought or stolen, transferred or inherited. It is thought of as something that can be gotten from someone else, or somewhere else. One person’s gain of external power is perceived as another person’s loss. The result of seeing power as external is violence and destruction.

Your personality is that part of you that was born into, lives within, and will die within time. To be a human and to have a personality are the same thing. Your personality, like your body, is the vehicle of your evolution.

The decisions that you make and the actions that you take upon the earth are the means by which you evolve. At each moment you choose the intentions that will shape your experiences and those things upon which you will focus your attention. These choices affect your evolutionary process. If you choose unconsciously, you evolve unconsciously. If you choose consciously, you evolve consciously.

The fearful and violent emotions that have come to characterize human and our community existence can be experienced only by the personality. Only the personality can feel anger, fear, hatred, vengeance, sorrow, shame, regret, indifference, frustration, and loneliness. Only the personality can judge, manipulate and exploit. The personality can also be loving, compassionate, and wise in its relations with others, but love, compassion, and wisdom do not come from the personality. They are experiences of who you really are—your true self!

You are a conscious human being in a conscious universe.
