“Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.”
~ Roy T. Bennett
No, this is not a rhetorical question. I do understand that “Who do you think you are?” is a question that is usually asked in annoyance, but I am truly asking you, because it is important for you to consider this question – and to answer it.
If you have read any of my posts, or any of the pages on this website, then you will know that I believe that we are not just physical. I believe that we come to these physical bodies, on this physical plane, to experience the world and expand the Universe through our experiences, our thoughts, our feelings, our dreams, and our desires. I believe that we are the creators of our own realities, and, through our shared realities, we are the co-creators of the Universe.
That gives you an idea of who I think I am. So now my question to you, “Who do you think you are?”
People have various thoughts and feelings about this subject. The answer may be one of the observable world – from our current perspective – or it may be more of a philosophical one. My purpose for writing this post is to get you to at least think about it.
Are you just a physical being? Does all that happens to you in this world constitute all that you are? Are you defined by your work in this world? Are you defined by your influence upon this physical plane as you journey through your life?
How you perceive yourself has a lot to do with how your life flows in this world. I hope that you can at least see that. If you perceive that you are poor, or that you have physical ailments, that you are in situations that you, and those around you, deem “bad” or “negative”, then that is what you experience. It is my belief that you don’t perceive these things because they are your reality, but rather, these things are your reality, because you perceive them.
How you perceive yourself is what you experience, no doubt, so why not expand that perception? Why not take the time to give some thought about who you really think you are? If you believe you are more than what you are in this physical world, then take the time to reflect on that and what it means.
I encourage you to spend some reflective time to get in touch with that part of you that is not physical. I encourage you to let this physical plane fade away for a while and spend some time getting to know who you really are – get to know the whole you. Take the time to reflect on your beliefs, and allow the guidance of your greater self (your higher self, Source, the Universe, the one, God…whatever you choose to call it) and to keep the whole you in mind as you progress through this journey of your life.
“Who do you think you are?”
Your answer may hold the key to some very important discoveries in your life, and, upon reflection, it may change your life in ways you cannot imagine.
What do you think? Are you only of this physical plane? Are you a victim of circumstance? Or are you a powerful creator with the power to create your reality? Leave a comment and let the community know who you are. We’re listening.
