Doesn't spirituality boil down to the question 'who am I?'
It's the perennial and constant question always asking itself.
So it's primarily a mental process...
A total process that's far from abstract...a process that's the basis of everything we experience.
You mean it's what creates our experience?
It's what creates creation and what realizes it as well.
If the question is 'who am I,' why do you often repeat that we're not who we think we are?
Because we think we're many different and separate beings. It reinforces the story that keeps the dream of separateness alive and well unless one's tipping point is reached. Perhaps the world as each one knows it finally gets top-heavy and collapses under its own weight.
Maybe we're closer to the cliff's edge than we think.Maybe we'll wind up stumbling over it, arriving at the Beloved's threshold and experiencing the presence of Self as more real than all of our dreams.
