Many Sides of One

Perhaps the deepest question one may ask, can be distilled into only three little words: who am I? Who am I … a profound question that follows us lifetime through lifetime, which is always tugging at our sleeve, and a question with an answer that continually grows with the keenness of our own perceptions. Every thought, every feeling … what we do and what we say … clues are ubiquitous, yet so often go unseen. However, when courage and honesty combine with a willingness for truth, and reality is contemplated not with fear but with felicity, you’ll suddenly discover the amazing fact that: “I’m a pretty interesting person!”

A soul … who experiences many lives yet applies conscious focus on merely a sliver of them at a time. A matrix of mind and emotion … made of the miraculous, while living daily in the mundane. Matter and energy … beliefs and potentials … you are all of this and more! You are a multidimensional concept, in view of itself. And, because of who you are, you must see yourself multidimensionally as well.

So … a ‘multidimensional perspective’ of yourself … big words, but what do they mean? Put simply: the truth is known the more you honestly seek it. If you look in the mirror and all you see is that same old funny face looking back at you … (well, my face is kinda’ funny looking) … then all you are seeing is one very narrow layer of being – an infinitesimal¬† glimpse at infinite cosmos that is you. You can’t look at yourself from a single perspective and expect to find the truth, you have to look at it from many sides, and be bold enough to admit all that you see …

Life is not what they tell you it is on TV my friends, and neither are you! Quit assigning identities to yourself like some answer on a game show, or as an imitation of your favorite Hollywood character. Quit listening to the salesmen masquerading as doctors and the illusionists pretending to be teachers … all of their fear and fashionable labels serve only to distract you from finding the deeper truth: that life is indeed a state of mind, and understanding it is not accomplished by a division into ‘this category and that’, but by the inclusion of one piece onto another. Modern people define themselves by their so called ‘medical conditions’ and whatever trendy phrase is used to pack them neatly into personality boxes: ‘a geek’, ‘a goth’ … ‘my depression’, ‘my cancer’ … ‘middle-aged feminist’, and ‘teenaged introvert’ … it’s all a trap, people! Don’t limit yourself just because you’re too scared of wide-open spaces … don’t seal yourself into an invisible prison cell so that you can have the comfort of someone else being responsible for who you are. You’re worth more than that …

The interesting thing is that once you remove yourself from that paradigm of preconceived roles and definitions,¬† you open yourself up to a reality where ‘who you are’ reveals itself to be a literal matter of the mind … a divine communication between higher meaning, and your own experience. What is more is that this broadened perspective enables you to affect change, sometimes quite profound, by an understanding that ‘who you are’ is an ever-expanding prospect. Possibility and probability are a part of your totality, the mechanism of change is in our comprehension of how multidimensional we truly are, and the ability is in our will to choose those experiences wisely.

Most of us have scarcely ‘said hello’ to who we really are … let alone sat-down and had a ‘heart-to-heart conversation’ – largely because before you ever get a chance to try and figure it out for yourself, someone else is shoving the ‘answers’ at you. Independent thought is rarely encouraged by our society, and neither is true individualism. It’s a daring path to take … to trust your own heart and mind instead of the ‘map you bought at Walmart’ … and some wrong turns are probably inevitable, but I promise the view¬† along the way will be nothing less than fascinating! Free your mind from the web of social conditioning, free your heart from the limits of popular labels … get to know yourself – I think you might find it interesting …

… and good journey to all of kind intentions.
