The question of "Who am I" is very important. It's at the heart of life itself. Since the dawn of civilization, we have gone through this form or that form, life after life, experience after experience....trying to find our identity, trying to find who we are.
And we usually always look for it, out there somewhere, out in the world of form. I'm a man, I'm a woman, I'm part of this ethnic group, or part of this country, I'm part of this religion, part of this family, part of this group of folks. People need a sense of identity, a sense of belonging, a sense of being part of a group, because they haven't yet found their true identity.
Or how about we tend to identify also, with our jobs, with our possessions, our spouses, our family, our relationships...like this is who we are. And as long as we keep doing this...we will never find out who we are, because ultimately the knowledge of who we are lies within.
I've always found it weird how people like to cluster together in groups, and put a part of their sense of self, their sense of identity, into the group. I've never done that, I've always been a lone wolf, I like to be independent and objective. I am nothing and everything. I am friends with everybody and nobody. Even in high school, I was a jock and was friends with all the jocks...I was a nerd and was friends with all the nerds, I was an athlete and was friends with all the athletes, I was a stoner and was friends with all the stoners, I was an outcast and was friends with all the outcasts.....but at the same time, I was none of these things, and was never part of any group. At the workplace too, people cluster together into cliques and I knew everybody but was not part of any one clique.
I've studied every major religion, and I've been to their houses of worship, and they always seem disappointed when they can't get me to identify with their religion lol I tell them I identify with all religions. I am a Christian, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu, I am whatever you need me to be. But at the same time, I'm not any of these things.
Even on this site too, people tend to cluster together into cliques. I remember Drekx Omega telling me several different times, you're making the wrong friends here, choosing the wrong allegiances....because I don't ally myself with him and his group of friends. You need to understand Drekx, I don't ally with anybody. I am Switzerland. I identify with everybody and nobody. I don't believe in taking sides, or choosing one group over the other. I don't need to look for a sense of community, or belonging, or worth...in some group...I look within myself for that.
I always had a strong sense of self. Obviously I've went through the issues of identifying with outside things...but the more I progress on the spiritual path, the more I identify with me....this soul that is experiencing this story called the life of John Jancar. I know I'm not actually John Jancar. I'm not a human either. I'm not a Sirian, or Andromedan, or Arcturian, I'm not a starseed or even a lightworker. I identify with all of these things, and none of them. I know ultimately, my soul was not forged on this planet, or in Sirius, or wherever.....my soul, ultimately, was forged within GOD. Beyond all manifested form.
So who are we? I've discovered....we are everything....and nothing. We come from God, therefore...we are God...but what is God? God is everything and nothing. God just is...and so we just are, so I just am...I AM. Simple as that. I'm not anything, but I am everything. I am a human, but I'm not. I am John Jancar, but I'm not. I am a Sirian, a Pleiadian, a Arcturian...I am them all...but I'm not any of them. I am an angel, an archangel...I am a demon and demigod...I am this computer, I am the room around me....I am this house....I am the sky and the stars, the rocks and the dirt.....I am this world, I am this solar system, I am this galaxy, my identity encompasses the whollleee of creation! But it also encompasses nothing! I am everything...but I am not. I just am.....I simply just am...
Now the question is....who are YOU?
This is John Jancar, or me having this experience called John Jancar......wishing you much love, joy, and inspiration.
I think that's right, I think that to find our true selves, we have to basically give up all identifications. At least identifications with external forms. I really try to be like God, I doubt God takes sides lol I doubt God has preferences, God is all encompassing. But at the same time, God isn't none of these things that we identify as forms. Anyways...lol Thanks for commenting Finding :)
God is everything. God is the universe. god is the receiver and the perceived. Both space and form
I am that I am seeing egocentric obOMBER identification delusions of grandeur blood lust for firebombing nations using multi-billion dollar un-manned joystick drones planes targeting the old, sick, women and children. peace
Please leave your Obama hatred off this thread, Starport, I don't know why you just came here to vent like this, but please let's stick to the subject.
Knowing ones "self" comes with the ability to see yourself within, look into your own eyes, and love what's in front of you. See the beauty in yourself and others. :-)
Forgiveness can heal many things, but sometimes, it takes "action" to truly heal the rifts that we create between one another. Sometimes we just have to learn to be patient with each other.
When we see the beauty in ourself and others, we learn a deeper compassion that can conquer anything.
