My Dear Friends,
I was wondering how many times per day we say ‘I’ , I’,m not feeling well, I’m fed up, I dont’t agree, I don’t like that, I love you, I want that, I want this, I, I I…
The little ‘I’s, the personality is composed of countless fragments called little ‘I’s, all of which counted together form our image of ourselves.. These little ‘I’s, acting autonomously and often contradicting one other, take turns directing our personality – for example, the jealous ‘I’, the complaining ‘I’, the submissive ‘I’, the dominant ‘I’, etc. Without realising it, we can constantly take ourselves to be one of these little ‘I’s, which gives us the impression of being one, whereas we are in fact completely fragmented.
The Higher ‘I’, is the true nature of man, it is even further from his lower ‘I’ ( all of his little ‘I’s) than his essence. It gradually awakens in us as we develop our essence. this higher ‘I’ is composed of two higher parts of our being (the higher emotional center and the higher intellectual center ) which can only manifest when they receive nourishment of high quality, a nourishment that can only be provided by our essence. By purifying our lower ‘I’, our essence can develop and our higher emotional and intellectual centers can become active, allowing our higher ‘I’ to manifest.
Our Higher ‘I’ is at one with God, Source, your Higher Self, keep cultivating it and you will benefit from its awakening 🙂
Namaste with Love
“I” agree…most of us are so concerned with making distinctions…what is inside, what is outside…I/me/Us/you/them…creating opposites…strong opinions…as we make judgments that fragment our view of the universe.
It is said “All existence is created within the mind”. When we experience the connection of ourselves with everything, all the small “I’s” seem to disappear all by themselves…when the “Big I” envelopes everything, there are no more distinctions. Just this.
Namaste Chazz 🙂
I am has always been my favorite name of The Higher Power. A few days ago I posted a piece on ego and the word I has caused me to pause when using it though.
🙂 Blessings to you my friend 🙂
