Identifying Who You Are.
WALKING FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT
POWERFUL is you when you discover and know WHO YOU ARE. Living without knowing your SELF or in another language; not knowing who you are beyond what you see from your outer part i.e. your body, your normal everyday thinking and feeling is like living in darkness. This means that whenever you will understand WHO YOU ARE, i.e. Beyond what you know about yourself now, is when you will start living in LIGHT and that is the TRUTH about you, it will set you free and you will independently live YOU, not programs of other people in your life.
You are your programs
When a child is born she/he is not aware of anything in the world, his/her ego is none of the world’s information in mind to start controlling her/him to live according to those information, that is why when she/he wants to start standing up and walking never give up until he/she makes it. This is due to the fact that there is no any negative voice in this child which could be telling him/her that, “stop trying to standup because you will probably fall down and get injured”, what a baby know by the time being is just to stand up and start walking.
When a baby grows up and start sensing is when she/he start heading to a darkness.
He/she start doing things or behaving according to what parents, siblings and other people around teach him/her, for instance they may teach him/ her to fear dogs or snakes that they are bad animals and automatically this child will start fearing them however she/he sees other people live friendly with these animals at their homes but simply because this child is programed that way then she/ he will be living her/his parents programs in her/his entire life.
Your destructive ego is growing every day.
As every day you are fed with a lot of different information, those information nourishes your ego (inflated opinion of yourself) which in turn start controlling your life in general, the grown ego in you is what makes you feel guilt when you behave not according to it. For instance if your parents or the society you are coming from taught you that it is not acceptable to do sex before marriage then when you do that your ego will speak to you that you have sinned (gone against) and that will be a source of your guilt feeling which will kill your soul and deteriorate your body.
Living in your programs undermines your success,
Living according to the programs of your fore fathers, parents, teachers, religious leaders and so forth is totally not living YOU. What these people do in your life is just planting their values which in turn you are forced to believe them and start living accordingly. I do not mean you should stop listening to your parents directions, I know that they have good morals to share with you so that they can help to nicely shape your life because they have experience, but what I am doing is to make you aware that most of the time you are not relaxed and not enjoying what you do or live by, because it was not you who decided to live the way you live or join a school you are now, undertaking a carrier you are now etc. most of the time you feel guilt when you remember that what you do doesn’t satisfy you because you feel like it is not coming from within you, and when you think of going to your own way, your EGO forces you to remain there because by leaving you will be violating the social values.
At school you were taught that failing in examinations and any undertakings is life failure, stupidity, poor IQ, poor mindset etc., and to emphasize on this you were beaten severely immediately as you failed, automatically you will never accept taking risk which will make you fail. This means that it will be difficult for you to do new things which is more risk but ends up with great success in your life, fear will be your life controller, you will not be ready to start new ventures like business simply because you are not ready to fail. Do you see this program of your teacher in your life? This is darkness. The light is that each success is found in failure and unless there is no failure then you can’t know what to do to improve the situation. Knowing this truth will make you comfortable to undertake anything with risk as long as you envision and know its successful end.
Discovering your personal values
Every human being is living according to what he/she knows and within what you know there are the values which are 100% correlating with your personality which makes you unique. And this personality of yours is what contradicts with ego as it forces you do according to its programs. Therefore there are your strong personal values which are normally competing with other planted social values which ego is their driver in you. Discovering and living your personal values is like walking from darkness to light and those personal values is what will mean YOU or they are going to tell WHO YOU ARE.
Do this to discover WHO YOU ARE…
Pick and write on a piece of paper all people who are your role models or people you like most and feel like you could be like them. They might be dead or some alive, others might be characters in novels or books you have red or movies you watched, for instance one of my role mode is MOSES from the bible.
After you have listed them all, start writing in front of each one the good adjectives you like from them for instance it might be intelligence or wise etc. don’t write wisdom instead write wise which is an adjective depicts directly the goodness of such habit of your role model. You can list more than one habit/ adjective to a single role model.
After you finish listing all of them, have a look to what you have written, you will discover that those are what makes you like those role models, and the truth is that you like those behaviors because they truly collide with your personal values that means all what you have written are your personal values and those mean you, that is TRUE YOU. Another person probably couldn’t see the same things you have detected from these role models, they could see different things according their personalities, likely to you, have detected all those because that is you.
Therefore you most of the time feel guilt because you normally violate the above personal values of you, let say you have discovered a FAITHFUL habit from your role model that means you are naturally faithful then when you become unfaithful because of some social circumstances you will definitely feel guilt at the end of the day. You are not living YOU.
After discovering who you are…
Now take another paper and just write OTHER values which you think you have, apart from what you have discovered from your role models. They might be sounding good for instance efficiency, effectiveness etc., just write them all, what you are going to discover after listing all of them is that these are the most embarrassing values which makes you not relaxing most of the time. You find yourself not relating to them when you try to undertake, you do not feel comfortable with them. just know that it is not a problem but the fact is by forcing to be efficient while it is not your personal core value is like denying yourself, the truth is just by well following your core personal values efficiency will automatically reveal out itself in your life.
Living in light is living your core personal values and that is a true you and by doing so you will be escaping living programs of others in your life and this is the only fountain of your successful life. A successful life is when you become happy of your living because you do positives that makes you real happy and joyful, so you will never be happy by living not according to you but according to other people.
You will look stupid at the beginning
The fact is when you start living your own core values, your own positive decisions in life other people and the society will define you as a stupid person because you do not seem normal but the truth is; successful people are normally stupid at the beginning, what they do is not giving up on their decision until they succeed and other people understand what they do hence follow them. And this is the LIGHT I am talking about.
It is possible I wish you the best as you are starting to walk from darkness to light today.
