‘’I am connected to the perfect intelligence that supports all form and therefore I am a part and parcel of it all. I have no limitations and no compartments. I am not going to get it all, I am it already.’’
(Dr Wayne W. Dyer, ‘You’ll See It When You Believe It.’)
Having begun my spiritual journey over a decade ago, it was not until I heard my greatest spiritual teacher, the late Wayne Dyer say these words that I truly awakened: ‘You are a spiritual being having a human experience’. When I first heard him say this, I didn’t fully understand what that meant. It took me a long time to fully understand the meaning behind these powerful words and when I finally got it, that’s when I felt my real spiritual awakening took place.
I understand now that you are so much more than your physical body; there’s more behind the structure and organs of your body which simply perform the function of acting like a temporary shelter that houses the real you. The real you, which some people call divine consciousness, some call the soul or spirit or higher consciousness, lives in me, in you and in every single living organism on this earthly plane. The invisible life force that makes a plant grow from the tiniest of seeds is the same divine energy that is behind the creation of human life.
This realisation opened me up to the possibility of an entirely new way of being and thus allowed me to experience massive transformation in my life, but a large majority of us reject this idea of ‘being’ choosing instead to remain in the safety we have been so used to. To experience transformation in any area of your life, you need to move out of your comfort zone to live in a state of pure, blissful, conscious awareness. Transformation is about love, peace, respect of self and others, personal fulfilment and living in a state of harmony with humanity as a whole.
Many of us go through life with the belief that our happiness exists outside of ourselves. We are taught that love is found in another person and that the more material wealth we have, the happier we will be; these ideas are instilled in us from a very young age so we blindly go through life trying to accumulate more; more money, more material things, more qualifications, more success and we look for love, approval and validation from others. But true love and happiness is not an outside job. As Rumi, the 13th Century poet says:
‘’Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you are already that.”
If you stop looking without and start looking within, you discover that you and only you hold the keys to love and happiness; you simply have to unlock these to find that they already exist within you. If you want to know yourself as the eternal being that you truly are and transform your life to experience love, peace, happiness and fulfilment, all you have to do is to let go of the belief that who you are is what you have and start looking within.
