A gentle reminder that your role … well actually, the multitude of roles you occupy in life are not you. You are not your job title, your culture, your marital status, or any other label – positive, neutral, or negative.
Zip, nada – none of it.
You are so much more.
Your roles are only the outer reality of your world.
Shaped by circumstances, experiences, family history, and our perceptions.
Solidified with stories and schemas created by our minds in an effort to “keep us safe”.
Which become entrenched patterns of thought and behaviour …
Which we then believe is who we are.
But all of us have a wise inner voice of truth and knowing that arises from within.
Our True Nature, Soul, Inner Light, Awareness that is always present.
Our wisest Guide lies within us. This is not something available only to an enlightened few! And it is totally inclusive, Independent of any religious or other orientation.
We ALL have an essential nature.
We ALL have a deep sense of knowing what brings us joy and peace.
We ALL have intuitive insights as to what serves us best.
The journey to wholeness involves bringing our inner and outer realities into alignment.
And yes, we stumble and doubt and ignore and dismiss.
But every time we stop and listen and choose to follow our own Inner Guide, we step a little closer to integration, unity, and wholeness.
Isn’t it about time we acknowledged, accepted, and celebrated that we ALL are so much more than the Roles we inhabit?
