The use of the words ‘we, me, I’ almost always refer to that which comes from mind. A thought arises in the mind and then the mind produces a belief to accompany that thought. Thus ‘we, me, I’ equals the mind. . . .not who we are. When we are stuck in our mind, realization of who we are is often but a distant image.
How do we know who we are? If we are not our mind and we are not the thoughts and beliefs which run through our minds, and we are not the ‘I’ that is in association with all of the afore mentioned. . .then who are we beyond all this must be something which does not change.
In 1993 I traveled from Maui, Hawaii to Sydney Australia to speak on this very subject. .”Who Are We and Why Are We Here“. A great curiosity to understand who we are beyond the physical, mental or emotional was opening the sleepy eyes of many. The times were such that consciousness was evolving beyond the limitation of the personal and exploration of inner space was ‘trending’.
The truth is, ancient wisdom from Sages of all persuasions have said the same thing. Until we experience the ‘emptiness’ - or what has been referred to as ‘the space in which life happens’ - none of us have any idea of the vastness of who we are, beyond the parameters in the phenomenal world of form. Thus what we call ‘real‘ is totally illusory and that which appears to the mind to be nothing at all, is indeed everything.
Self inquiry is that which opens the door to the recognition of True Presence – The Self. . . who we are beyond the ordinary and the mundane. An inward journey such as this requires a guide, someone who knows the terrain of the mind and can point the way to safe passage beyond the obstacles of paradox and confusion.
I have found that which Mooji offers to be most illuminating. Not because the content of what he speaks differs from that which I have heard before, but rather because he fully embraces the essence of True Self. . Mooji is an ordinary man who lives an extraordinary life. . . .because he has found out who he is and why he is here. As a result of this his presence triggers, and can awaken, that which seeks expression at the core of us all. Mooji vibrates to the frequency of Self Realization.
The work of Self Inquiry is beyond the development or improvement of the personal. It is not about healing anything and yet deep peace results in profound wellness of being. To seek and find that which never changes, is key to discovering who we are. . . . and why we are here.
