I was once asked a simple question “who are you?” ” who am I?” This is a question Every one wants to answer to the best. I am this and that and someone’s this and some one else’s that! A matter of fact.. just a manner to feed your “I”(ego).
Let me share a story..
There was a potter in a small village. He had a donkey. The potter would create earthen ware, load it on the donkeys back and go and sell it in the market. One day, the potter decided to make statues of the goddess. He made beautiful statues and loaded it on the donkeys back. As he was going to the market, the people on the way started bowing to the donkey. The donkey was initially puzzled, but within no time, it started enjoying the attention it got. He straightened it’s back.. looked up in the sky and started walking tall thinking “Finally, the people have started giving me respect. I am great and will always be.”
Days passed and one day, the donkey was strolling on the road. No one noticed him anf so he started braying loudly. Irritated by the noise the people around started throwing stones at him.
Now, if we relate the parable, the “I” is the donkey. The people are the world around you. The statue is the energy that one carries.
As long as one realises that we are just a carrier of the abilities, we are a medium to the good things we can give the world, the ego does nt arise at all.
Once we start feeding our mind that its us that the people are bowing to, it isn’t far that there will be a day when the ego will have to bring a downfall .
It’s important for anyone to understand and realise this simple truth. I am not the body, I am not even my mind. I am a source of infinite positive energy. I am a medium to light up the world and the world bows to this light within me.
With this realisation is when the “I” completely vanishes. Realise, rise and shine!
Those who claim to know the limits of the infinite beyond..
Shall never be able to taste the nectar of darkness of the unknown..
For what One knows is the delusion of a knowledgeable mind…
And wisdom lies in the limitless beyond what One seeks to find! Come risk seek and shine..
For in you is the limitless possibility..
The darkness to be discovered..
The light to shine!
Be breathe better yourself… for there lies in You all that you seek for!
Tat Twam Asi! 💫💫
